I am THRILLED to tell you that Day 2 was not The Hangover. I have felt pretty much amazing all day. I kid not.
I mean, I woke up with the WORST headache... not my "i always have headaches" headache (the one i mentioned yesterday), but a different headache. I have had it before... maybe the last time i stopped sugar? It was definitely a withdrawal headache, or a "need coffee NOW" headache.
HOWEVER, I had THE most amazing breakfast! I had no idea that avocado & egg were THAT good together. I mean, I've seen a ton of pics from paleo people with egg & avocado, and i thought "yum!" because I like eggs & I love avocado. What i didn't expect was how good it tasted TOGETHER! Oh M Gee!
Not 10 minutes after eating, i felt 100x better. I did take excedrin when i woke up, because the head was SPLITTING OPEN. But i feel sure the food had something to do with it, too!
For lunch, i had tilapia & mixed steamed veggies (zucchini, squash, broccoli, carrot & cauliflower). I couldn't finish it all and had the rest (+ some almonds) for dinner. AMAZING!
I had my support group tonight (yes, i go to a support group for infertility - it's pretty much amazing) & she always serves fruit! I was really looking forward to it & she didn't let me down! Grapes & pineapples & strawberries! YUM! I came home and was hungry again so i had a few bites of celery. And that is IT! :)
I would love some coffee. But i have felt really good all day. I hope this doesn't mean tomorrow will be terrible! Haha! But i know it probably will...and it will be okay. I am going to push THROUGH THIS! :)
I cannot tell you how much it helps having FOUR people doing this with me! Me & two of the girls text each other throughout the day, Brad & i talk about it, and i am part of a local paleo group on FB & they are super helpful too. So much better doing this with support! I always have support, but to have people actually joining me - it's WONDERFUL.
And all of your comments - thank you! I am receiving a ton of encouragement & it is great!!
Oh, quick story! Today i was training a girl and she pulled a peppermint out of her pocket & popped it in her mouth. She said, "you want one?" & i said yes, because i forgot. I mean, it's a mint, right? She put it on the desk for me because i was in the middle of typing or something & couldn't get it right then. As i was typing, i thought, "Oh, crap, you can't eat that, it's pure sugar!" And then, "Melissa, it's just a peppermint." & then, "Seriously? You need it!" (I think tilapia gives you bad breath!) And then i said to the girl, "I'm sorry, I can't eat that... I'm doing this 30-day challenge thing..." :) Hahaha!
I passed up a peppermint, y'all. I mean. That's awesome of me. Just... gonna go pat myself on the back. Ha! ;)
P.S. I'm getting a headache... the kind i had this morning when i got up. I guess that means it's time for bed! Haha!
P.S.(again). My husband was miserable tonight. He had a migraine & slight nausea. This is not uncommon for Day 2. He texted me at 6:30 that he was going to bed! Crazy!!! Haha! Please pray for him that he has a more awesome day tomorrow & sticks with this! :) (But he says he will!)
