Whole30 Diary Entry: Day 2
I had a really hard time falling asleep last night. I went to bed in plenty of time to get 9 hours of sleep, but I tossed and turned, and then ended up checking emails and facebook on my iPhone. . . . by the time I actually was able to fall asleep, it was 12:30, so I only ended up getting 6 hours of sleep last night.
I woke up this morning feeling like I hadn't slept AT ALL! It took me a good hour (after breakfast and 2 cups of coffee) before I felt clear-headed.
Once I finally "woke up", I felt pretty good throughout the rest of the day, although a little bit low on energy around 3pm.
Work was pretty busy, and I was feeling a bit cold/achy around 11-ish, so I heated up a cup of bone broth. It was very soothing, and just what I needed to tide me over till lunch. Lunch and Dinner were both yummy and filling, but I did find myself craving that "sweet something" for about 30 minutes after each meal. Thankfully, the cravings passed fairly quickly though.
Cravings and/or "Issues":
As mentioned above - I definitely craved the heck out of some sugar after both Lunch and Dinner. At first, I thought I was still hungry, but then realized that I was just really craving sugar. Once the craving passed, I realized that I was actually pretty full!
I only had 1 egg left this morning, so I improvised and ate leftover meatloaf and spinach muffins for breakfast (along w/ the 1 lonely egg). I missed my eggs though. I really love my morning eggs . . . will have to be more careful not to run out again!
Still no working out due to shoulder/knees. I considered going for a swim after work today, but I ended up working late, and didn't have time to make it to the Natatorium and get a swim in before they closed.
I did do my shoulder PT this evening, as well as my Hamstring Bridges, and am getting ready to do about 15 minutes of Foam Rolling before bed.
Knee is still bugging me. It doesn't hurt under the kneecap so much anymore, but almost feels like the entire kneecap is "floating". . and just loose. I don't know if that makes any sense, but I'm hoping that this means it's starting to heal?
I did take ibuprofen twice today, and also took 2 tsp of SFH Fish Oil to help with inflammation
I did better about drinking water today :) I ended up drinking about 70 oz, and that included about 1/2 L of sparkling water by Central Market with a very faint citrus flavoring.
Onward and Upward to tomorrow :) I'm going to make it a point to get in bed early tonight. I'm drinking some Calcium Magnesium as well, and hoping that helps me to fall asleep a little bit more easily. Day 2 - Success!
