Good morning, Everyone!!! I just have to share a couple of victories this morning.
#1 – For the last 5+ years I have struggled with sleeping. I would routinely wake up between 1 and 2AM and be awake for a long time before I could go back to sleep. Or I would toss and turn for what seemed like an eternity before falling into a very restless sleep only to wake a couple of hours later.
Last night I actually slept through the night – no waking at 2AM, no waking to go to the bathroom. I intentionally didn’t set an alarm, and slept until 8AM. I woke up slowly and it was glorious!
#2 – I have been a late night snacker for, well probably, ever. I always reached for popcorn, chocolate, a glass of wine, etc. I knew it was a bad habit and I actually kicked it for awhile when I was trying to lose 30 pounds. But I let the habit creep back. Now I only snack if I’m actually hungry – which I haven’t been on Whole30! I’m amazed at how little food (good, healthy, sugar free food) it takes to fill me up now. I don’t crave sweet things, and my salt cravings have greatly diminished.
I will slowly add back wine and some dairy, but my love affair with sugar (except for the very occasional dark chocolate!) is pretty much over. I am SO grateful for W30, this group of accountability partners and most of all, Ashley G. for gently prodding me and AH on this journey!
Stay strong!
