FINALLY, I have awoken (at 5:30 am! on my own!) with TIGER BLOOD! Finally! I woke up before my 6 am alarm and proceeded to crank through a bunch of tasks and was somewhat bouncing around the house that day. Paul complained that I stole his motivation. If that’s true, I was totally fine with that.
It felt so good to finally have my motivation back; I had missed it. Things were a bit of a struggle, although the physical cravings were gone, which was so nice. I still have mental and social cravings: when I want food to, basically, stop from having to Feel the Feelings, but that’s one of the reasons I’m doing a Whole60 instead of a Whole30. I am still having issues around nuts/nut butter filling in for other comfort food, and I need to address that.
I did still need an early evening nap, but I think that was due to not getting enough sleep the night before more than anything.
In keeping with the “laziest Whole30 ever”, I cooked some ground beef, threw in kale, and cabbage, some carrots and spices and called it lunch. I also called it dinner as well. I find that it’s actually so much easier to live this way when I’m not stressing about 80 new recipes a week, but I don’t think I would have gotten to this place if I hadn’t gone through the somewhat OCD Whole30 I did in May.
