Today is the day. I have prepared myself in all the ways I know how to. I am starting the Whole 30 Challenge today! Chase and I went shopping at Whole Foods in Dallas this weekend, cut up, pre-cooked, and planned meals to ready ourselves for this endeavor. I think that obsessing over it this weekend is what caused my nightmare last night. Here is how it went down:
Side-note: After researching and reading all weekend about the Whole 30, it is very evident that you CANNOT CHEAT. AT ALL.
This dream is very similar to the day before the first day of school ones….you know…the one where you go to school with no pants on, or everyone else’s school supplies are better than yours. What? You didn’t have that one? Well last night….I actually had a dream that I ate left over Chinese food from the refrigerator for lunch today and then realized what I had done. In my dream I bawled and cried. I remember thinking to myself, “what am I going to tell Chase?, How did I let myself do this?, What am I going to put on my blog?” Then…my alarm went off and I realized it was all just a crazy nightmare. I ended one nightmare to start another one. A real life nightmare….RUNNING. Ok…so I’m being dramatic, but it did SUCK!
I was the only one that showed up for today’s morning class, so Kristin gave me a workout to do that will be a good benchmark test for my eating challenge. We are going to do the same workout in 30 days and see how I feel. I’m hoping it is lots better than I did today!!
I’ll be logging my meals on the Whole 30 page of my blog and writing updates on how I’m doing, feeling, and OWNING this challenge. Say a prayer for me.
