Whole 30 to Start Whole30

Today was a FAIL. I feel like it's going to take me 30 (days) to start Whole30. I was too tired to make breakfast.  However, I cooked the boys eggs, gave them string cheese, I ate a couple of almonds, and went back to bed. Feel free to call me lazy, but I'm not. Trade me places for a day and you will find it's easier to judge than it is to walk in someone's shoes for a day. (Some ADD could be affecting this, too. You know, putting things off..)  It wears me out doing any errand and then I just want to relax when I get home. Like, today at my sleep study consultation!

Breakfast is supposed to be eaten an hour after waking. Hmm, gonna have to work on that one!  I just need a day to make a bunch of purees, broths, and plan meals, but I am always too tired by the end of the day to do that. You know, gotta try to tidy up this mess a little bit (no, talking about the apartment, not me)! I feel like I'm in limbo... but, tomorrow is going to be the end of that. I have a friend who will be coming to help me get things rolling. She's been where I am before and I am grateful to have someone who can understand this mess I'm in!

So, tomorrow is the start of my 30+ day diet. :)

I went to my sleep study consultation today. I felt it was a waste of time when it was something they could have done over the phone. (Except the vitals.) It took me 2 weeks for this appointment and now I have to keep a sleep diary for 2 weeks and then go in a week later for the sleep study. I feel like I will feel better (at least have enough energy to function throughout the day) before I even do the sleep study! I wouldn't mind canceling, but we'll play it by ear and see what happens.

I'm writing this early so I can go relax. After I got home from the sleep study consultation I cleaned in the kitchen until I couldn't do anymore. Still needs work, but I did what I could. Wouldn't it just be easier to do the dishes after every meal? Yeah, you'd think that would be the way to do things. :P

You can do it! It is hard to get things done when you are tired so cut yourself some slack and just do what you can now. Any amount of effort will help get you going. Maybe you should break it down into small accomplishments instead of the overwhelming whole picture. Like just get breakfast done tomorrow and thats it. Don't worry about the house the house will get under control when you have got yourself feeling better . Concentrate on you!
