Day 5 of #Whole30.
My brain is climbing on board. The neurons are stretching, waking from the detox-induced fog and we are all good. I still feel as if I need to close my eyes for 10 minutes come about 4pm, but that's okay.
On-the-go snacks and a little pre-planning. I'm a fly by the seat of your pants kind of girl, so I've had to slow down a bit. Not a bad thing, just a thing thing.
Sugar-free Bacon! I found the unicorn and it is delicious;)
Coconut Aminos-Non-Soy Sauce creating a flavor bomb for stir-fry, marinades, etc. Yum.
Rekindling my love for avocados and peppers.
What I ate yesterday:
Eggs, almond butter, carrots, a date, tons of veggies, avocado/olive oil, salmon, stir fry, water and coffee. Oh, and some fruit and nuts.
Ummm...not a whole lot of change except there is an awareness SOMETHING is going on.
One moment yesterday had the power to derail my thoughts to a negative place. I saw a picture of me, several actually, and my self-esteem, self-worth hit rock bottom. Honestly, it was sobering. The power of an image. Never mind the lighting, the angle, the circumstances—my entire mood hinged on a photograph. Insert screeching brakes. Are you kidding me? I can't even right now. I'm still muddling through that junk.
I'm more still and am positive this has a thing or two do with the lack of sugar in my body right now; nevertheless, I'm coloring and meditating on God's Word. I'm more aware of relationships. I see more clearly and my ears are bent towards others instead of myself.
All in all, I'm not on the verge of killing all the things. But, I am a bit more introspective. The bandaids (comfort go-to's) have been put aside, so instead of looking out, I'm looking in.
I'm digging it.
