Day 2 of Whole30

No headache today! Yippee! I can still feel some residual pain from it. Kind the outlines of the migraine from yesterday.

This morning I had eggs and leeks & asparagus for breakfast again, but this time I fried the eggs. It was a lot better that way. I was pretty hungry since I basically skipped dinner last night.

Right after breakfast Tori and I started practicing our Halloween makeup so that we can apply it quickly on the big day. I hate it when Halloween falls on a weekday. At least until we finally get it made a government holiday, LOL. When my kids were little, I'd take the day off and pull them from school a couple of hours early, just to get everything got done.

I had the same lunch as yesterday. I still don't like the tuna, but tuna and deviled eggs were going to be my go to lunch options for the work week. I definitely have to find some new mayo.

For dinner I had pork chops, sauerkraut, and roasted zucchini and eggplants. It was okay. It has been about two years since I had pork chops (pig meat was never high on my list even when I regularly consumed flesh). There is just something weird about the texture.

I'm going to head to bed soon. The headache echo is still lingering. And if I go to bed, I won't be tempted to eat everything.

So far, Whole30 has me obsessively thinking about food and craving things I normally wouldn't even think about, like ice cream and candy. I'm sure it's just the fact that I can't have these things that is making me want them so much. I'm hoping it will be easier tomorrow, since I'll have work to focus on.

  1. Connie way to go on day 2 and I'm glad your head is a little better. This looks hard but I'm sure the outcome will be worth it. I have to admit your posts have had me very curious about whole 30 and I've been reading up on it. Have a great week!

  2. Connie, sorry it's been a rough start. I promise that by days 3-4, things will start to improve. Your body is starting to go through withdrawals. You can bust through this; I know you can. I PROMISE by the end of the week it will be easier. :)

  3. Connie when I gave up wheat, rice, corn & sugar it took about 6 days before the food party in my head stopped. And it took about that long before the fog lifted from my brain... Its been nearly 10 months and its only at extreme times of stress or holidays/birthday parties that the cravings come LOL it is a definite visual thing now ... I see it ... I want it ... so I've learned to walk away and I'm okay ...
