Whole30 Week 2

Yellow! Week 2 is over which means we are more than halfway done with our 2nd Whole30 Challenge, AND we have officially beaten our previous, sad, old record of 14 days. I’m also happy to announce there has been no plate sniffing or crumb inspecting (although there has been copious amounts of talk about what our first meal back is going to be. I say hamburger, Steven says Pizza). Overall, things are going well. My clothes are starting to not feel like they are suffocating my entire body which is a real plus. I’m also still feeling up for cooking which is shocking considering it has been SIXTEEN DAYS of consecutive cooking which I think is a world record in this house. AND sixteen days of no alcohol which is a even more shocking. Something that has been really helping us be successful this time around has been Instagram. I follow a few accounts pretty religiously and they all have amazing recipes that have really inspired our meals. A few of my favorites: No Crumbs …

I read on the Whole30 blog that it is important not to credit everything good happening to Whole30 (“WOO, THERE WILL BE A SEASON 3 OF STRANGER THINGS, THANKS WHOLE30!”) and in the same breath, you can’t blame everything negative on Whole30 (“I FEEL LIKE I’M DYING, TO HELL WITH YOU WHOLE30!) That was day 4 for me and I was feeling terrible. My whole body was aching, I was nauseous, my head hurt and my legs…oh my gosh my legs. You know the feeling …

Wholly 30

We survived Whole 30…for 2 weeks. Yup, we completed the Whole14. It really kills me to tell you that we didn’t complete all 30 days and that we tapped out early..but I will say we definitely followed the plan for those 14 days to the T (I know I know…if you’re not first you’re last). There were a lot of aspect I really did enjoy from the plan but also a lot of things one should know before trying! So now that I’ve destroyed all the credibility I had, I’m going to go ahead and give some advice I think you should know if you are thinking of Whole30ing. Because this is my blog. And I can. So here we go. Why I chose to deprived myself (and Steven) of Cheese (and other things we love) You may or may not know that I really began to change the way I was eating/living around last September. I weighed the heaviest I had ever weighed and it was all due to my lack of activity and …
