Last update I left you with night sweats and bad sleep and I am happy to report the night sweats have passed! #hallelu I have no idea what was causing that, but I am glad to be rid of it for now.
Before I give you this next update, let me go back. When I picked March for this food experiment, I thought it was the prefect month. No family birthday dinners this month, no anniversaries, no special occasions/work events. Basically I could eat food from home each meal and I could avoid having to ask a poor waitress 900 questions before I order chicken and steamed broccoli. Also if I had any horrible detox symptoms, I wouldn’t have to miss anything. There was one thing I forgot..DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME.
For someone who has PCOS and suffers from fatigue, daylight savings time is the WORST. So this week as soon as I passed the night sweat demon, the daylight savings time devil was right around the corner. I felt great on Sunday. I actually had a pretty busy morning with church and an event at the gym but Monday and every day after was a struggle in the morning. I am still getting it back together. The reason this is really frustrating for me is, I cant really tell if the Whole 30 is helping me in the morning fatigue area or not with an hour of lost sleep thrown in. Hopefully this will get better this week. #fingerscrossed
In the food department, I have kept things pretty simple. Saturday night I tried this recipe for pulled pork. I don’t have the Hawaiian salt so I used kosher and it turned out great. My plan is to try adding the pork to several dishes and making this omelet. YUM!
I have decided to obey the rules and not weight myself until day 31, but I can tell I have had some weight loss. It seems to be mostly in my stomach/torso. Quite a few pairs of pants are looser. This is amazing to me because even though I am keeping track of what I eat, I am not limiting myself. So in other words, I am eating more.
Later this week, I will share my reintroduction plan. I have been thinking about this a lot and I have decided not to keep going and make this a whole 60, but I will do the reintroduction phase and continue eating paleo.
Best Day this week: Day 13 Had pretty good sleep and the reality of Daylight Savings had not hit yet!
Best meal this week: Have to stay with the smoothie with homemade almond milk, banana, and almond butter
Favorite recipe this week: Slow Cooker Kalua PigI will be back with the 4th week wrap up and reintroduction plan!
