That would say who moved my cheese but I can’t eat that right now…Everyone said the first week of Whole 30 is the hardest. I’m not sure I had any idea how hard. I’m in sugar withdrawal. Today during my workout which was intense, I wanted to power through soooo badly but I had NO get up. No spark of you can do this.
I think all of my energy right now is being consumed by trying to NOT eat the things I’m craving. I really never thought I ate much crap but apparently I was just fooling myself into believing that.
Is this the biotchy-ness I was told to expect during the first week? I’m hoping!
I feel like I wrote this same post last Thursday. I know I’m shocking my system. I’m trying out different workouts that are much more intense than I’ve been doing. And I’m cutting my body off from the food it’s used to consuming. I get it… but it doesn’t make it any easier.
I’m really trying to find my motivation and get my head back in the game. I know it will come back after my body gets used to this style of eating. I’m just frustrated right now.
On a positive note though I’m already noticing my body reacting positively. I’m not a great morning riser. It’s really something I have to force myself to do with endless alarms and other treats. Yet for the past 3 days I have been bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 6am! And I mean like Hi I’m awake ready to roll at 6am! I even scared the crap out of my husband the first morning he was like WHOA what are you doing, shocked to see me all awake when normally I’m either still fighting to wake up or still asleep. This is something I am not used to.
Surprisingly enough I now know how to make my own mayonnaise and for the first time in my life I’m actually enjoying it.
Another thing? I’m being forced to learn new way to cook red meat. I love red meat but I like it MUCH more when someone else cooks it for me.
I used this on a rump roast that I cooked in the crock pot. It came out great and my entire family enjoyed it. As I’ve said on this program I’m trying to make dinners that fill every ones needs. Breakfasts and lunches I can make two of, one for myself and one for my family. Dinners though we need to be together.
I altered this recipe slightly. I left out the chilli powder since with two little ones eating I knew it couldn’t be too hot or they wouldn’t touch it.
It turned out great. My husband even took the leftovers as lunch sandwiches the next day. Score one for Whole 30!
I know my motivation will be back soon…I’m just impatient I want it NOW!
In case you are interested here are some great things I’m reading today:
Ericka Anderson has a great post about friends we meet in social media. This one strikes a cord with me since I feel this same way I have so many people I consider friends who I’ve never met in real life, our only intereaction is through social media.
Coco Shares with us all the mystery of how to cut a mango. And some great recipes for mangos as well. Can I tell you the first time I ate a mango I didn’t realize it had a seed- it was a sight!
A video of Boston Bruins fans singing the National Anthem. It’s amazing.
One of my favorite blog friends is the feature today on FitFluential: Meet Melissa from Treats with a Twist!
Question of the Day: No seriously where is my motivation? How do you get out of a slump? Seen any good TV shows lately? Does Spicy Meat Rub sound dirty?
