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.
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.
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.
