Whole30 Update Week 3: Stress Test

Leave a comment

October 7, 2012 by Darlene McC

In software development (and probably other things) stress tests are done before a program is released, one of many steps to make sure the program is ready.  The developers believe the program is nearly complete and stable so they simulate lots and lots of people using it at once, thereby putting “stress” on the program to make sure it doesn’t fail.  This week was, unintentionally, the stress test of my Whole30.

I spent very little of this week thinking about Whole30 because I was dealing with other things.  The testament here is that I didn’t have any off plan foods, I didn’t sugar binge (though I did occasionally eat at times I wasn’t supposed to).  The dreams have abated and the ketosis has lessened, though not completely gone.  Slept through most nights and felt rested when I woke up.

Looking back at the first 2 weeks I think I was eating “too much” – meaning that I was eating till I was satisfied, but I wasn’t reaching satiety as soon as I “should have”.  This week I noticed that if I had an unbalanced meal I wouldn’t feel satiated after the meal and I would over eat; but if it was well balanced with good protein, fat, and some carbs I felt satisfied faster and didn’t eat as much.

On the flip side, digestion is still a mess.  It doesn’t seem to matter how much fiber or kimchi I have, things aren’t moving like they should.  Hopefully that’ll click in week 4; but right now I’m missing my greek yogurt!

That covers most of the week, except for:

Saturday – Day 20:

Movie Nightmare

My Week 3 Whole30 Tip: don’t go to the movies while doing Whole30.  I broke out into cold sweats last night while my husband packed down popcorn and soda.  I brought a bag of pecans to keep myself from reaching for the bag o’ pop; but it was tough.  I overate calories in the process; but at least it wasn’t “bad” food, right?

Just a reminder. . . #clearmindopenheart
When the Universe gives you what you needed, say "Thank You!" . . 2018 was a really challenging year. Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. One of the most important things I learned along the way was to stop questioning when I get what I need. Instead I express gratitude! . . Time and again I'd be presented with exactly the growth opportunity or essential thing I NEEDED to survive...and I'd question it! I'd doubt if it was the right choice or if I could pull it off 🤦‍♀️ - until it became so obvious that my doubts were foolish. I was right where I needed to be. . . For #transfomationtuesday share in the comments some gratitude for times you were given exactly what you needed! 💓💓 . . #dropthedoubt #motivation #anothergrowthopportunity #growandchange #gratitude #universalguidance #modernspirituality #thankyou #saythankyou
"Age" has never been my challenge. I don't mind getting older - I don't mind getting wiser, stronger, and more resilient 💪💜 = = My challenges have been negative self talk, the aftermath of bad decisions, and the frustration of not living up to my personal best. Cultivating a growth mindset and working on my relationship with myself has shifted all that. = = We are all a work in progress, and my work is certainly not done. May the next 10 years have the vision and challenges to teach me lessons I can't even imagine right now. = = #howharddidaginghityouchallenge #growthmindset #levelup #curlyhair #selftalk #positivity #positivevibepositivemind #coaching #coachmentality
