Back on the Wagon - Molly

It's been two weeks since Jason and I finished our whole30.

The first week out of the gate, I was surprised that I really didn't want to cheat with anything. I wanted to keep going with all of the restrictions.

I also was surprised at how fearful I was to eat again. 

But I did. 

Oh boy, did I.

Jason and I both got a little "free" in our cheat meals. I think in one day Jason ate a bacon cheeseburger, fries, pizza and a milkshake. 

(You can't blame him, he had an accounting test that day, he needed to de-stress.)

 My pitfalls...


Simple, plain, (tasty) sugar. 
Desserts. Chocolate. Cookies. CANDY!

Sugar took over my brain!

And, it wrecked my body. I have been miserable for the past 10 days. MISERABLE!

I can't fault myself for the first few days, I was on my period. :)

But I got a little out of control - especially when my parents were in town.

A cupcake (or two) one day, french macaroons another. Key lime bar - check. Homemade oreos, double check. Trader Joe's Jo Jo's (thanks Erica) and leftover Sour Patch Kids.

The outcome you ask?

My digestive system is screaming at me. Nothing, I mean nothing.....has been solid in weeks. 
(Sorry, but I'm trying to make a point.)

I am bloated. Gassy. Down right stinky. I haven't slept well, and I have a hard time falling asleep lately.

And...the worst of it - I have gained 3 pounds back.

3 pounds!! In less than 2 weeks!!


I am back on the wagon today. And I pretty much plan to stay there. 

When I cheat, it's going to be worth it. 
No more junk. I'm over it.

The holidays are coming. I am going to save up my cheats and make them worth it.

In the meantime, I am on the wagon.
Don't try to talk me off.

It's just not worth it.  
true story...

Don't you think it was all that sugar that fueled your overhand pull-up? Just saying ;) hehe

I think I'm nearly convinced to join you in January for your next Whole30. Honey, rice, and booze will be the harder things for me to let go of.
