I was going to wait a few days to write a post, but today was SUPER hard for me. Why was today so much harder than yesterday? I’m not too sure. I could really tell a difference in my mood~ in a negative way. I was super cranky with the kids, low energy, and felt depressed. This is not like me to feel depressed- I mean really depressed. It is weird and annoying for me. I want to tell myself to snap out of it, but it seems like it is coming from somewhere deeper. I hate feeling this way. I was even complaining to my husband about how bad my life is and he says, “it’s because of the full moon” and I just start laughing because I realize that this is part of my sugar die-off. My body is detoxing. I guess I have to get over the sugar hump.
The other thing is, I am still eating fruit, so I thought that the die off would not be so bad. But I have to remember that I also cut out gluten. And I think my brain is going haywire….like a drug addict or something. Where are my drugs ~ gluten and sugar???? One thing that has helped me get through the cravings, a big glass of milk. The protein really helps stabilize my blood sugar. So I guess if you are feeling really bad, like me, try to increase your healthy saturated fats, eggs, milk, yogurt, meat, cheese. I will be eating more of these foods tomorrow.
So much for day 2. I am glad this day is over! I hope I am not the only feeling this way…. please others chime in.
I can do it. I can do it. I can do it.
What did I eat today?
Breakfast: 1 cup milk and banana
Snack: 1 avocado, organic/GMO free corn chips
Lunch: Baked fresh water Bass w/ onions, garlic powder, butter; cucumbers
Snack: 1 cup milk
Dinner: Smoothie: Banana, strawberries, milk, plain homemade matsoni yogurt
I don’t think I am eating enough. Hence the crankiness. I will see if that helps tomorrow.
