The Wicked Wednesdays
Is anyone else finding Wednesday’s to be the day of cravings, mood swings, and severe want to punch this diet in the head??
I am. Last week, I wondered if it was just a random day of rage towards the food I was eating, but the fact that today has resulted in the exact same (if not worse) reaction, I’m wondering if “hump day” should come back into my vocabulary.
I’m having a very easy time feeling like it’s Luke’s fault we’re eating this way, even though that’s completely ridiculous. Also, the fact that he has been eating healthy so long and doesn’t show any signs of disliking the diet doesn’t make me any less unhappy towards him when I’m in The Wednesdays. I hope that if any of you are experiencing any of these signs, you’re not making any crucial relationship decisions at the same time, cause these things pack a wallop!
Another couple things I’m finding are a complete lack of interest towards the meals we have to create. I actually get a feeling of loathing towards food in general which is a little scary for me with the background I have. I never want to feel those feelings again. Wednesday food-hating isn’t the same though. If someone was to hand me a piece of chocolate cake I wouldn’t think twice.
I’ve also been having a lot of cramping issues. I’m not a girl who gets pain at that time of the month, but I’m weeks away and I’m already feeling quite bloated and have a lot of cramping and discomfort. I’m looking into the issues of eating eggs + ovarian cysts right now, so I’ll let you ladies know what I find. I don’t want any of you going through this uncomfortable pain if you don’t have to!
I’m finding that these kind of things are helping me with my moods and my body discomforts:
-Walk away for a bit; taking a breath or two away from the melt-down
-Getting something to eat (as much as your stomach/cramping is trying to tell you no)(I’m not going for eggs as a snack right now, using green beans)
-DON’T give into the temptation of cheat food… (if someone had said that to me this afternoon I might have started crying and yelling at them lol)
-Remember why you’re doing this diet: It might not break down that wall that builds itself up while you’re getting these cravings, but if you keep telling yourself how important your body and mind are, you are going to eventually break through a little, and a little more, until you can think a bit clearer and eat some food, take a brisk walk, or lie down for a while. What ever suits your style.
I would love to hear if anyone else is going through ‘The Wednesdays’ like I’m experiencing! Tweet me @katpenfold or leave a comment below!
Happy Thursdays, everyone!
