And so I begin day 4 of the Whole30. I would be lying if I said this was easy. Today, I feel like an actual manatee was dropped from my roof and broke it's fall squarely on top of me. I'm exhausted, bloated, and still desperately craving nachos and peanut butter cups. Clearly, a huge portion of this is psychological. I know that I don't need processed sugar to live, but right now vegetables and I have a tenuous relationship. In the last 4 days, I have eaten carrots, spinach, baby kale, tomatoes (technically a fruit, but I'll never call it that), bell peppers, and broccoli. It has been delicious, but not a candy bar.
It's hard to imagine making it another 26 days, and yet, in the grand scheme of things, it's not all that long. I ordered a bunch of stuff from an online organic grocery store. Pre-made Whole30 compliant condiments and snacks aren't cheap, but sometimes, it's nice to have a grab and go lying around. It helps keep me on track and honest. I'm most interested to try the BBQ sauce and Ketchup. Both are usually loaded with junk ingredients and sugar or high fructose corn syrup. I wonder what they will taste like without it?
On another note, I'm still without Fitbit charger and I'd really like to know where the heck I lost it. My day is incomplete and my heart has a hole without my beloved Alta HR. Sigh. The minute we cough up the money for a new one, you know I'll find the old one lying around somewhere. Anyway, wish me luck as I continue to battle the urge to roll around in frosting and wipe it off with cookies. I'll be doing another impossible pants check in at the end of this so stay tuned (if you haven't heard the story of the impossible pants, check the tab - they have their own page!)
