Over Halfway Through!
I cannot believe it. We're 16 days into it...over halfway through our 30 days and I am SO over craving the crap. Which pretty much makes me speechless. I did not think that would change. Get better, maybe, but not go away entirely.
(Let me clarify...I still have delicious dreams about coffee. I will never include coffee in the "crap" family, and it will be returning to me when these days are done.)
For the first week of this, I wanted ice cream/something really bad for me like you wouldn't believe. I have always had a hard time telling myself I *couldn't* have something, because that only made me want to eat it. And I would inevitably fail. Having Ernie do this Whole30 thing with me, though, has been the biggest help. He definitely has conviction so it is easier NOT to cheat when I know he's doing the same thing I am. (Of course, he is in shape and lookin good, so whatever.) Anyway, first week, wanted to cry. Second week, it started to get better but if someone put me in a room with some Tim's Salt and Vinegar potato chips or some Cherry Garcia, it would be on.
However NOW...today is day 16. A couple nights ago I realized, as I was sitting on the couch being an old lady (crocheting) -- I just want my yummy paleo food. I love the stuff I cook and I don't want to replace it with anything! That is huge for me. H-U-G-E. I don't feel like "making it through" these 30 days and then hopping off the wagon into a pile of sugar and processed foods. It just doesn't sound appealing. That is so beyond exciting to me! Time is flying by faster and I can't wait to see the changes that we've made begin to show.
