Good grief my body is rebelling. It wants sugar and it wants it now.
NOW, I TELLS YOU!!
So far I've managed to resist the urge, even though I made some cakes I researched in New Zealand and brought them into work today. They are sitting there calling my name, so I might take them upstairs for all the fieldworkers to nom.
Tonight I think will be a struggle. There's no extra-curricular activity, which leaves me with a solid 4 hours of nothing to do except think about how much I want some sugar. I may go swimming, or I might dig out my crochet hook and start on a blanket for a friend's baby. Or perhaps both, as swimming won't take me 4 hours.
Aside from the mad sugar cravings, I seem to be doing okay. Although I really have to look up some more 'things to do with vegetables'. Day 1 and I'm already running out of ideas. And no, I'm not one of those people who can eat exactly the same thing every day and not go out of their mind with boredom. Variety is the spice of life and all that.
I did take my measurements but they're at home and I'm currently at work so I'll add them in when I get home tonight.
Breakfast - scrambled eggs with roast veggies
Lunch - Salmon, butternut squash soup, pear
Dinner - Chicken breast, roast sweet potato (with cinnamon and coconut milk mmmmm), peas
Snack - carrot sticks, apple
I do know they recommend not snacking, but I also know my body can't go from 3-4 snacks per day to none whatsoever. I'm keeping them Whole30-compliant and cutting them out slowly.
So far so good!
