This is only the beginning

Yay! I survived Detox. There was a lot of whining, but I did it, and I’m down 7lbs. Not bad for a week of sacrifice. And, hooray! I get to have my coffee back. minions_cheering


crying-VanderbeekSo, now I start the Fat Shredded program. I can do this: more protein, less fruit, now I can workout again, no dairy. Um, wait just a minute. Is half & half dairy? Well, sh*it. What is the point of giving me my coffee back if I can’t have cream and sweetener?? Why must life suck? Oh, wait, sorry: this is a no whining zone, isn’t it?

Ok, well, here we go. What matters more: watching the scale move or having cream in your coffee? As Whole 30 puts it:

It is not hard. Don’t you dare tell us this is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Birthing a baby is hard. Losing a parent is hard. Drinking your coffee black. Is. Not. Hard.

Well, there’s some perspective for ya. Ok, I am convinced, I am shamed into shutting the hell up, I’m motivated. Let’s do this.

Seriously, I can’t be alone in my whining. What are you struggling with? Please share with me. I have to know I’m not the only one carrying on like this.

  1. Anna Rocks…. I HEAR you, fellow Whole 30 whiner…giving up my one cup of coffee with no sweetener and cream really sucks…..I have been putting in coconut cream (“legal”) into my coffee but no sugar……arghhhh……..but……..when I realize how I feel today, how much energy I have, and the way my clothes fit, and for the first time in years I am alcohol-free, I am so very thankful that this is all I have to give up….I have found I can drink a spicy, cinnamon and allspice hot tea when I need something “bracing” in the morning without the need for sugar……adapt, adapt, accept, move on……….!!!!! Keep at it!
