Whole 30: Week 1 Recap

well. i survived week one and live to tell the tale.

they describe the first week as the "angry" week cuz all the caffeine and sugar most of us consume have been taken from us. your cravings are out of control. you have headaches and withdraws. you are tired and feel like you have little energy. misery.

well im happy to say, i had no headaches, only tired one day. but i had lots of cravings. i wanted ice cream every. single. day. me and sugar have a love hate relationship. i love it. it loves my hips. i hate my hips. ugh.

i dont really have any complaints really. except im not a big vegetable eater. i could eat fruit all day long, but you are suppose to limit the amount of fruit you eat because of the sugar. but im slowly working vegetables in. sweet potatoes, broccoli, green beans, zucchini, cucumbers, spinach, and mixed green were all consumed this week. ill be adding a few more veggies in this week. gotta keep it interesting. i still got 23 days to go!

for most of the week i felt hungry often, but the past few days the hungriness has subsided. does that mean its working?  also, one good benefit.. im am not bloated like usual. ya know how you feel and look bigger at the end of the day? well that goes away, and i feel thinner and stay thinner throughout the day. i wouldnt say i have extra energy. that supposedly comes in week 3. but so far im liking the benefits im getting out of this diet.

and really, the diet isnt that bad. eating meat and veggies should always be how we eat. but the industry packs so much crap into foods to make it super yummy and we just cant help ourselves. now im not saying ill never eat that stuff again. but i will definitely limit how much of that i eat. there is added sugar in so many foods, its crazy! but ill save all that for the last recap.

7 days down, 23 to go!
