My April Whole30: Day 13

Breakfast:

Lunch:  Insert picture of ridiculous chicken leftovers... whoops.

Dinner:

Dessert:

Sleep (Last Night): 6.5 hours... boooo!

Workout: 1 hour leisurely walk with Puddin' and I actually got a pretty good workout from putting away a ton of folding tables and chairs. 

Thoughts:  I woke up a few minutes before 7... ugh! I couldn't fall back asleep so I decided to be productive.  I cooked a healthy breakfast, filled my gas tank, cleaned and did laundry, caught up with a friend, and took the dog for a long leisurely walk all before noon.

Ok it's confession time.  I lost all control at the roast beef dinner at our church! For some reason I decided I was going to eat dessert.  I'm not sure why I felt so relaxed about breaking the rules but there was an overwhelming amount of amazing homemade dessert choices and I decided I wanted one.  I picked a piece of pineapple upsidedown cake and gave a third of my piece to my dad.  And then I decided I was going to eat a piece of chocolate cake, which was rich, moist, and delicious.  And then an hour or so later I had 2 mini cakes with chocolate and strawberry topping.  Huge Whole30 fail!!!!! Did I feel really crappy or bloated?  Not really.  Did I feel guilty and like a failure? Kinda.  I don't know, I feel like I was more strict last time, but at the same time I feel like I'm still experiencing progress through the program and I just can't stress myself over not being perfect.  It is what it is.

What food makes you lose all control?

  3. Yesterday afternoon was hard for me too. I stress/comfort ate instead of eating for nutrition. Just keep going!

  4. Good attitude. There's no use in getting all stressed out or feeling super terrible about a slip-up. No one is perfect, and you're doing a great job overall. :)

  5. Really glad I just found your blog! I tried the whole 30 in february but never made it through because of this reason or that...it is SO hard. And is it a big deal? I mean as long as those foods don't make you feel crappy. I sometimes felt like the pressure to eat whole 30 was more stressful than if I just ate the non-compliant foods. Maybe I will attempt another one sometime..I still feel like trying it really revamped my diet a lot so it was beneficial.
