An icon should be here...This first week feels more difficult than the first week of round 1 of the Lean, Cut, & Straight Up Jacked! Nutrition Plan. I’m not sure why this is. This is the third day and already I feel extremely tired. I also had an upset stomach and nausea the morning of day 2, which seemed to come out of nowhere. One of my cohorts pointed out that it may be the Iaso Detox Tea I am drinking. I have only had 2 cups per day, but perhaps I will cut that down a bit. That tea is likely flushing out toxins, thus making me feel sick.Though today I felt much better.

I am also feeling massive resentment towards some of the food the student council has chosen to stock the student lounge with. I walk into the lounge at 0830 Monday morning and am greeted by 2 full sheets of nanaimo bars, packets of cookies, various breakfast/snack bars that are the equivalent of toaster strudel, and various other treats. Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful for the food and treats and want them to stay. My issue is having this spread presented to me at 0830 in the morning!!! Not cool. Forget being on a nutrition plan, this is stuff isn’t conducive to student health period. Perhaps I am bitter because I can’t have any. Still, if not on this nutrition plan I would likely have eaten 1 of each treat or more and been just as resentful. Hooped if I do and hooped if I don’t I suppose. Grumble…

Today in class I was attempting to rationalize nanaimo bars in my head. Thoughts such as, “No one will know”, “I could have half”, “I could have a little because I’m so tired and this feeling makes sitting through 6 hours of class really difficult”, etc…
Then, I started thinking, “what if I have some sort of blood sugar problem? what if this? what if that?”. This led me to search information about blood sugar disorders on the paranoia inducing internet. I then realized I was being silly. I was so desperately trying to give my self license to om nom nom that buttery bar of chocolatey delight.
NO! NO I SAY! There will be countless more nanaimo bars in my life. There will not be countless more opportunities to attain my desired level of fitness. I have committed to this 8 weeks and I’m going to do this! I can have a whole sheet of nanaimo bars if I so wish at the end of this 8 weeks.

I’m so thankful my friend from class is doing this with me. After our classes we go to Koyabell together and have an opportunity to vent and share on the drive there. Thank you support buddy, I appreciate you.
