For a while (days 12-17) this Whole30 seemed really long and now I can’t believe it’s almost over. Weird.
One of the reasons I started it was to get better sleep and my sleep this week has been crappy because of outside things, (HENRY), but I still feel good throughout the day. So that tells me that I would probably feel really awesome if I was actually sleeping.
Yesterday was a really rough day for me, one of my special students who is in 9th grade, and the daughter of my OBGYN who is very special to me has leukemia. Last night she had major complications due to an infection as a result of the chemo and coded 4 times and had to be intubated. She is in critical condition and the next few days are crucial. If you are somebody who prays, pray for her please.
After I heard the news I had to go to the grocery and get my food for the weekend and next week. Before Whole30 I would’ve gone straight to the donuts and cakes and bought myself an afternoon binge. However, I didn’t even feel like that. And I didn’t want to quit my Whole30. And all of the food on Whole30 is delicious but not binge food. Also, I heard on a podcast (Half Size Me) that when you are sad because somebody you love has a body that’s failing them you need to honor them by taking care of yours. So, I came home and drank a kombucha and eventually went on a 45 minute walk and listened to an Oprah podcast. It felt good to have Oprah’s voice in my ears for 45 minutes.
Well, I have to go drink my coffee because I am going back to Body Pump today. I’m nervous and excited. In honor of my return my instructor who is my good friend is doing my favorite one, which is Body Pump 96!
Henry is at the boat with my parents this weekend and having the time of his life. ❤️ And sleeping like a champ. Of course. 🙄
Have a good weekend, everybody!
Remember to pray if you will!
