Christie Mawby Posted April 5, 2013 Share Posted April 5, 2013 So here I am, 4 days in and bested by my maternal instincts to not let my 3 year old burn his mouth on a cup of hot chocolate. Oh well. It isn't really a failure, more of a "mommy responsibility trumps all" kind of thing. It is my first "slide" on my second attempt at a whole30 type challenge. I know I do not need to restart after a simple temperature test of hot chocolate. I am still adding the extra days on at the end. So instead of ending mother's day I will end on the following thursday. Which is cool. By then I will not want to end so adding extra days is sort of a non-issue. I am starting to love (while still despising) the simple black and whiteness of Whole30....you either did it or you didn't. No bartering, no grey area...yes or no. So, while I would like to negotiate why a small chocolate egg would be okay when compared to a large order of fries - I don't need to because it won't matter. It is simple. Annoyingly simple. I rage at it and love it at the same time. I am hitting this one a lot differently then my first crack at a Whole30. I am not "logging" my food....well I am writing about what I eat on my blog, but my posts aren't related to food volume. I am also trying to be brutally honest with myself.....which TOTALLY sucks. I have also walked away from every food/paleo/diet page I follow on Facebook. I need to ditch the clutter. I have my, now dog eared, copy of It Starts With Food covered in page flags to remind me of what I am doing and why. I also started a blog....because for some twisted reason writing about my feelings in a completely public forum is way less intimidating then doing it privately in a book. Yeah, I am that messed up. Anyway, I am off to scan the forum. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
