One more hour before I am officially primal! I had my first real "OMIGOD, I can't believe I;m doing this" moment when I went to Whole Foods earlier to stock up on primal staples. Even at Whole Foods there were so many foods that weren't organic, or contained soy or some other off-limits ingredient, and I felt a little sticker shock when I saw the differences in the prices of the organic foods vs. the conventional versions that I have always purchased in the past. I was there a lot longer than I thought I would be but when it was all said in done, the final bill wasn't really that much more than I have spent at Kroger when I needed to stock up on staples. And I have certainly spent that much or more cumulatively over the course of the average month ordering over-priced, low-carb convenience products. Most important, I have enough choices to make me feel like I won't be completely at a lost about what to eat over these initial days.
Ironically, however, I have decided to make this very first day an IF day. I have the IF experience from when I did ESE last year so I know I can do it in the short term. Where ESE broke down for me was in feeling like I had to do it at least twice per week to get results. WIth PB, it feels like my call if and when I want to IF, including never at all if that is what I desire. Funny how not feeling like you have to do something makes itfeel so much more palatable to do it. ANd I do want to do it. I;m feeling so bloated and uncomfortable from all the last supper eating I've been doing this week, I am looking forward to taking a break from food. SO the plan is to do an 18 hour IF starting at Midnight tonight until at least 6pm tomorrow.
SO, I have my food, I have my new scale to track my progress, and I have my new diet support aid, the Beck Solution, that I will have time to really delve into starting tomorrow. Now all I need is for the clock to strike 12!
