Last day of week 3! I can’t believe it, it’s gone so quickly…for the most part. ?
So, I need to address something here, I touched on it briefly a while back. Bathroom issues.
Sorry for the TMI, but I figure if my husband and I are both experiencing this, maybe others are too?
We’ve both had issues with loose BMs and having to go several times a day. It’s not awful, like diarrhea, just not normal. The past few days, I haven’t had the urge to go at all…which is causing bloat and discomfort.
I feel like I’ve been getting enough fiber and in drinking lots of water. Experienced Whole 30ers, feel free to weigh below.
On another note, I want to take a second to talk about the mental games of this plan, or actually the lack there of.
As a lifelong “dieter”, you name it, I’ve tried it, I have had some “success with some of these commercial plans” but have never truly feel free to enjoy what I’m eating without thinking: good/bad. “I’m being good today, therefore I’m worthy” or “I’m being bad today”, and continue to make bad choices because I messed up and might as well call it a day.
This good/bad mentally is dangerous, unhealthy and leads to all kinds of disordered thinking about our relationships with food.
For the first time in my life I feel free to eat things that I might otherwise considered “bad”. For instance, today I made a salad with beets and salmon salad (canned salmon, basil mayo). Previously, if I had eaten something with mayo, I might have thought negatively and guilt toward the food and would not have truly enjoyed it.
Today, I ate and enjoyed my salad guilt free. And bonus- my pants continue to get looser. ?
