Whole 30 day 11 Surviving my inner chaos!

I was very excited to finally gets this dress in after waiting 2 months for it. I'm glad it fits and it looks pretty darn good ;) That is my feel good moment the last couple days. 

Having three young toddlers is hard. It's even harder when you go off antidepressants and are fine, until one day you are not fine at all. Three days into getting them out of my system and I did not feel in control over my emotions at all.

Walking or exercising helped in the moment to relax me, but ultimately I decided for my sanity and my kids I would go back on them. I don't want my kids to grow up worrying about why mommy is always upset or crying the joys of hormonal changes after having children. 

I was very surprised with how I handled my eating while I've been having a hard time. When I'm upset I normally go for chocolate, or peanut butter and chocolate. I didn't stray from whole 30 at all, even though I really wanted the cookies and snacks my kids were eating because I was stressed. It's a miracle I didn't cave!!
Before I could drink my coffee, they were all in my lap yesterday morning.

I have gotten a couple workouts in, but will be glad to do some P90X3 and T25 tomorrow. I took my daughter to the movies for the first time so I skipped my workout this evening. Back to work tomorrow! 

My snack for the movies. Toasted coconut with salt and cinnamon and an apple. Yum!!


  1. I try to read your blog often. You are a huge inspiration to me! Keep up the good work!

    1. I'm going to be on here a lot more often, trying to post once a week now :) So hopefully I can motivate myself to workout more too ;)
