11am saw me sitting at my desk practically drooling over the thought of a Paul orange hot chocolate with a stack of mini star-shaped waffles, dusted in icing sugar and dipped in dark chocolate.
I ate some salmon cakes and asparagus. (Gloomily, and slightly sulkily.)
By 2pm, I was dreaming of sugar-coated nuts and chocolate bars.
I drank some peppermint tea and ate a chocolate orange Nakd fruit bar in frustration, swearing a little bit inside my head.
When 5pm finally rolled around, I was feeling battered. I haven’t been this obsessed with something since I fell in love for the first time. I have been fantasising about sugary goodness all day. I do not like today. Mental battles are hard.
Part of me is proud I’m resisting and sticking to my Whole30 plan. A BIG part of me is wondering exactly why this is so hard, and could the mad sugar cravings stop now please?
