Day 8: Tuesday, Sept 10
So, my friend Robin is doing this Whole30/60 journey with me, and it’s so great to have someone to
complain talk to about everything that’s going on, especially the ridiculous cravings. Seriously, what I wouldn’t do for a piece of chocolate most days; it’s definitely a learning experience.
She’s subscribed to the daily emails from Whole9life, and sends them my way to see. Today’s email was, basically, “Don’t step on the scale”. We don’t wear our weight as a number on our backs, and a bad weigh in can ruin the day. Both Robin and I are compulsive scale steppers: we put our feet on the scale every day. I actually skipped on Monday just to see, and it was ridiculously hard.
So, we made a pact: we are both not going to weigh on our scales until Sept 27th. We both signed up for the Blogilates Sweatember DietBet (which has a ridiculous kitty of $118,575 right now!) so we are going to allow ourselves a weigh in before the official weigh in on Oct 1st. But whew! 2.5 weeks without weighing in will be weird, to say the least.
As for food and the like, not really a great day; still whole30 compliant but I did end up eating out of the sunbutter jar again. Stupid emotions and stuff I need to work through without food for comfort. Argh. But it wasn’t the end of the world, and Day 9 is another day.
