Day 10: Cathartic Burning

Mood:  I heard Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” on the radio this morning and wept the rest of the way to work.

General Thoughts:  The Whole30 book says that around Day 15 or 16 the dieter should experience a phase called “The Tiger Blood Phase”.  This is where you really start to drop weight and have boundless energy*.  If this doesn’t happen to me, I’m going to burn The Whole30 book in my backyard and toast marshmallows over its smoldering ashes.

*The dieter may also experience hallucinations featuring Charle Sheen during this phase.

Day 9: Dangerously Low Blood/Donut Levels

Mood:  I’m sure you’re tired of hearing about the withdrawal symptoms I’m having from my blood/donut level being so low, so I’m going to change this category by one letter…

Food:  Tonight we had burgers on the grill, sans buns.  I had mine with the homemade ketchup I made the other day, which oddly enough doesn’t taste anything like regular ketchup.  Today at lunch, I had to tuna salad on romaine leaves with sugar snap peas.  I know, I know, I’ll stop bragging.

General Thoughts:  Some of the stuff we’ve read says that day 10 and 11 are the days most people quit on this diet.  I guess we’ll see if there is a post tomorrow night.

Day 8: Fritters In The Sky

Mood:  I saw a cloud today that looked exactly like an apple fritter.  That should tell you about all you need to know…

General Thoughts:  Not going to be a long post today.  I’m trying to increase my daily workouts while also trying not to sabotage this diet.  I think I’ll go to bed before I make any chocolate related bad decisions.
