Whole30 Diary Entry: Day 2


General Attitude/Mood:
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!

Meals:
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!


Exercise:
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.

Injury Update:
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

Other:
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!
