Don't forget the H

Hi! I'm NicHole...that's right, Nic-Hole. Please don't leave the H out of my name, it drives me nuts. About me: 26. Married. Tattooed. I collect nicknames like it's my job. oh, and i am living proof that only child syndrome is real.

So there was this one point in life where I had nothing to do other than go to work.

Then one day I woke up and I have a million things to do in addition to work.

I both love this. And hate this. But mostly I love it because it’s what I do— I love doing things!

especially good for the Dirty Dozen (look it up)

Feel bad for me because I can’t have carbs! Do you feel bad yet?

HUMP DAY…woowoo!

Sike!


Today was not an awesome Whole30 day, which leads me to believe that I am coming over the hump from feeling terrible most of the time to feeling amazing and skinny and healthy.

Let’s start with how I did not sleep AT ALL last night…liiiiiike not at all. No sleep equals a very grouchy me…not to mention its shark week *lament*


My day was much improved after choosing to have 4 (four) slices of bacon with dinner *read: bacon makes everything better*


I ended my day with coaching cheerleading in which my shining moment included the words: "NO TWERKING OR YOU’LL RUN LAPS!!!!” — they’re 11 and 12, seriously????

Redeeming myself by prepping some roasted brussels and mashed sweet potatoes for lunch tomorrow!

Continue to stay tuned…

Day 7

Today is day 7 of my Whole30 and I kind of feel like garbage.

My energy has been pretty low all day and I feel completely drained and week. My sleep quality has actually diminished as well.

I’m thinking maybe I’m not eating enough but I don’t want to eat anymore than I currently am because I’m not hungry. I also don’t have a job where I can just eat all day long— I have people in and out of my office, many of whom don’t have the means to eat good meals.

Something that’s not really a revelation is that my emotions are tied into food. Today was a really annoying day and I wanted cookies.

I did not have cookies.

Hoping I start to feel this energy boost everyone has talked about in the next few days.

"Let Them Go" By T. D. Jakes 
There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you, let them walk. I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean, hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you, let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody who left. The Bible said that they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. (1 John 2:19)
People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay.
Let them go.
It doesn’t mean that they are a bad person; it just means that their part in the story is over. And you’ve got to know when peoples’ part in your story is over so that you don’t keep trying to raise the dead. You’ve got to know when it’s dead.
You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something. I’ve got the gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift. I believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful, it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He’ll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it. Stop begging people to stay.
Let them go!
