Live Real. Eat Real.

Whole30, Day 2

Yesterday was…rough.  Not from a diet point of view, just from a life point of view.

Breakfast was 3 cups of coffee.

Lunch was literally a couple of bites of leftover chili from the chili dogs.

Dinner was, well, non-existent.

(TC, I walked for a little over a mile on the treadmill yesterday morning.  That’s two burpees…)

When I’m truly stressed or upset, I sometimes find it very difficult to eat.  Just the thought makes me nauseous, and when it gets that way anything I do try to eat is likely to just come back up.  The upside to this is, of course, that I have no desire to eat drink anything that I shouldn’t, so I call that a win.

While the unbloggable stresses of yesterday are far from resolved, I feel calmer this morning and will eat today.  I’ll let you know what I eat tomorrow.

Have a great weekened, everyone.

It’s so interesting how stress effects each person so differently… Living in Colorado Springs we had some stressful weeks with the fire and evacuations (my parents were in the evacuation area and have extensive smoke damage to their home and are living with me…and have been since June 23)…that being said, I never realized I was a stress eater but those first few weeks I found myself craving a bag of chips (potato or chocolate…) It was very enlightening for me. I was on a pretty clean eating regime so I was really able to pinpoint the stress-craving thing the moment it happened. Happily, I was able to control it since I was able to recognize it and I feel thankful that now I know I have that tendency!

Oh dear. I hope you get through this to peace, one way or another.

I’m like that too. If I’m bored or mildly anxious … I eat. If I’m really stressed or upset … I can’t even look at food. I hope things improve quickly! Big hugs to you, Jan! xo
