Whole30 (day 21, 22 and 23)
I've read in the Whole30 book that it's between week three and four that boredom can set in. For me, this has been true primarily with breakfast. I am sleeping pretty well and I wake up hungry, but I often don't feel like eating, simply because I don't want to fix MORE EGGS. I'm learning that I actually like eating my dinner (again) in the morning. I remember back in 2012 eating "breakfast" fish for the first time. I almost couldn't do it—big cereal fan here—but I tried it and wow, did my body like it. Truly, it was like my cells were doing a happy breakfast dance. I felt so good in a new-to-me interstitial peaceful sort of way. Like satisfied deep inside with a crazy-cool sense of gratitude pulsing through my veins. weird. right? Anyway, since then, fish (tilapia or salmon) has become my power breakfast. If I know I'm going to be traveling all day or out and about and unsure of my next meal, then I often do fish and carrots or sweet potato. It's AWESOME.
So, one week to go. I'm doing good, but I won't lie, I'm starting to think about the reintroduction phase and thinking about what foods I might be most excited to bring back. At the same time, I kinda don't want to lose this intense feeling of well-being that I LOVE walking around with. We'll see.
