Reluctant Whole 30 Diary Day 10

Double digits, y'all! DAY 10!

I didn't feel awesome today for a couple of reasons that actually had nothing to do with Whole 30:

  1. I ate too many macadamias last night and they made my stomach hurt.
  2. Some stressful shit happened early this morning and as soon as I was alone, I cried in my car like big dumb baby and I got a headache afterward. Am I the only person in the world who gets "I cried too hard" headaches? 
  3. I worked out like a beast this afternoon. That is defined as me walking and running on the treadmill at a brisk 17 minute mile pace for 45 minutes. Then I came home and my legs fell off. Then I suddenly realized I was ravenously hungry, so I ate this coconut milk/chia seed/organic raisin thing that almost tasted like pudding (because I haven't had actual delicious sugar in ten whole, entire days). And I ate too much of it and then it happened - my blood sugar went from too low to high and I felt all yucky and draggy.

Here's what I ate today:
Coffee: 2 cups with coconut cream
Breakfast: chicken tenders with onions and peppers (because it was quick and it was there and we all had to be out of the house extra early this morning)
Lunch: Egg roll in a bowl leftovers
Snack: Coconut milk with organic raisins and chia seeds mixed in (left to sit in the fridge long enough for the chia seeds to puff up)
Dinner: Aidell's chicken and apple sausage, pan-seared with a hash of apples, potatoes, yams and turnips and served with a side of smugly unpasteurized, fermented sauerkraut with delightful gut-healing probiotics that I bought at Whole Foods for way too much money.

I had a couple of really good questions about how all this would work for people under different circumstances than mine (working lots of hours with kids, doesn't cook, or eat meat, etc). I'd like to remind everyone at this point that I have no idea what I'm doing and I don't know anything about anything. I'll still try and answer your questions, though! Just not tonight because I need this day to be over.

Here's todays gif. Because meh.

  1. I have not cried-cried in forever, but you are definitely not the only one who gets those "I cried too hard" headaches. I had a really really rough childhood, and I remember my head POUNDING after some of those crying fits. I think it's all the congestion in your head!

  2. I'm not the spell-check police but your misspelling of raisin had me laughing - like your coconut and chia seed snack is served with some philosophical angst about existence... :D

    Keep up the good work! You're doing awesome!

  3. I am a cry-so-hard-I-get-a-headache kind of gal. Solidarity my sister.

  4. Excellent write up. Choice of image? Even better. Now I have "You have a face como un burro" in my head.

  5. Definitely cried until my head hurt. Probably weekly. I wear my heart on my sleeve, so my highs are really high and my lows are really low. Rejection sucks and being validated is 100% amazing.

  6. the gif face you put up is totally my 9 year old right now. i get bad headaches when i cry too
