Holy cow, I spoke too soon. I woke up so unbelievably sore and tired today. Sore, I’m obviously attributing to the workout yesterday, but the fatigue I’m assuming is coming from the Whole30. Walking Ginger this morning was exhausting, walking from my bus stop to my office (2 blocks) felt like a marathon. I have never been so thankful to have a desk job in my life.
According to the Whole30 website, this kind of fatigue is expected (though they have it slated for day 6, but I guess I’m just an overachiever).
I did forget to mention in yesterday’s post however that I made my first trip to the grocery store while on Whole30. I did pretty good, mostly just staying out of the aisles where I knew I would be tempted. However, when I found that my chicken sausages were sold out, I nearly went postal on the meat guy. So, maybe the trip took a bigger tole on me than I thought. Thankfully, I held it together and said thank you and walked away.
I also visited the local butcher shop that recently moved into my neighborhood, so that was exciting! Plus, the butcher was cute, so I had that going for me. I walked out with two amazing pork chops, ground beef and ground lamb for burgers. I also picked up another dozen eggs because I’m already running low.
Finally, the past few days, I’ve had some strange dreams where I wake up remembering nothing except the fact that I was eating something forbidden (bread, candy, and poptarts). This program is doing strange things to me….only 25 days to go! 🙂
