IMG_9303

 

Week 2 started out great! I felt amazing, still had a cough.. and by wednesday (day 10) I was off to the Urgent Care (DR) because my son started the cough and I needed to be able to say this cough wasn’t anything serious… WELL Antibiotics it was and thats when my mood and body went down hill =( I just felt nasty, icky, and worse than before the antibiotics! So I am pushing through and today is day 6 of the antibiotics and so I will finish them in time to rock the last 10 days of whole 30… BUT i have stayed complaint and eating my normal foods on my meal plan even without an appetite and only wanting bad sweets… I will have a piece of fruit, coffee with coconut oil blended, or a larabar to overcome that craving! WE SUCCEEDED week 2!

As They Say… Don’t drink Shakeology with on Whole 30, I again need it for my health! I don’t feel Shakeology has anything bad in it- so I don’t think I personally need to eliminate it from my body… which Whole 30 is an elimination diet of the bad (sugars, dairy, legume, and grains) to see what is negatively effecting your body!

MY EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS!

Day 1: I was ANXIOUS, I wanted to make sure I followed the plan to a T and was making sure I was on top of any craving or hunger- I kind of made myself overwhelmed!

Day 2-3: Was Normal- tired by 7pm and not starving, I was truly satisfied!

Day 4-5: I woke up with a headache or burst of energy and a slight headache in the late morning. Coffee Black and a glass of ICE water helped!

Day 6-7: I was awake, and touchy with my emotions. I was fine then would cry over simple things or I would get testy. And I wanted to SNACK on day 7- just because I was laying around the house.

Nothing not normal with a detox! a few aches and pains, a little hunger, and a few cravings! When you are use to eating 5-6 meals a day… going to 3 is HARD! This week I did have a snack, and I will continue to do so in week 2- I am a nursing momma- So I do have to make sure my water and calories are up! ALL HEALTHY AND WHOLE 30 COMPLAINT (minus my shakeology).
