Nathalia Bailey Posted January 31, 2013 Share Posted January 31, 2013 Hi There, I'm starting my 3rd full whole 30 attempt tomorrow. I started my whole 30 January 2nd. I was doing sooo fabulously for 20 days, the last two of which I was surviving through a sorority/frat ski trip (lots of alcohol). Then on the last night of the ski trip I decided to have a few shots of gin. Boy did I have fun. Boy did I get serious crazy cravings the next week. Maybe I could've gone on w/my whole 30 w/10 days tacked on with just the gin slip up. But then my brain got crazy. I got ravenous and a little depressed. Throughout the week I had a little too much fruit, dried fruit, SWYPO, etc. Last Saturday night I was going so crazy I caved and had a thing of cold stone icecream, assuming I should just get it out of my system and my resolve for a full whole 30 would be stronger starting the next day. My resolve was stronger. Especially since I was actually feeling the kind of depression I haven't felt since going paleo 6 months ago. Tomorrow I have a job interview for a camp counselor job. One of the things they want is a show and tell, about anything. My father suggested I bake some paleo desserts, that way I can share a little bit about my way of eating, and, more importantly, I can show my strengths in service and hospitality. Well tonight I had a crazy night of baking, and when I bake I have no self control and taste everything. That's why I avoid baking now. So, point is I did some serious SWYPO tonight and feel it's just best to start over with a February whole 30. My main goal and motivation for doing a whole 30 is peace of mind. When I eat paleo, mostly meats and vegetables, and limit my fruits and nuts, my cravings go away, I feel confident and happy with myself, I feel light and just great. Now, when I eat those foods I know are bad for my body, I literally get depressed. Things that don't really matter get to me and I have crying spells. My cravings get out of control and I lose the ability to listen to my body's natural eat/stop signals. For the first time in my life, the way I eat has less to do with the way I look and everything to do with the way I feel. I'll be posting everyday now to keep myself honest. Looking foward to getting back to that sweet spot I was at about 10 days ago! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
