Seven days.... On one hand I am ready to scream and shout from the roof top. On the other hand, I remember I still have 23 days to go. Things got tricky today. First off, I woke up before the crack of dawn. Second, I didn't have breakfast. Lastly... I cheated!! I used one vanilla creamer in my decaf coffee at dinner, but you know what, I am ok. Technically the rules say I have to start over, but Melissa Hartwig (founder) of Whole30 had a few awesome posts on instagram that made me realize I am doing better than I have been in along time and sometimes IT IS OK to have that one teeny tiny thing. I refuse to let one mess up make January a total failure. I got up, drank a shit ton of water and decided that I wouldn't fall off the wagon and go on a binge. I am feeling great, my pants are loose, and so far I am feeling good. I hate the 2 p.m. slump I find myself in and I hate that I continuously wake up prior to my alarm, but I am embracing this change as a good sign.
