whole 30 wrapup

So if I’ve been MIA lately it’s because I’ve spent every waking moment thinking about food.
Why is that any different than usual, you ask?
Well, I just finished my third Whole 30. The second full one really since I failed a second attempt in January. Since starting a desk job, traveling and too many trips to Nashville I’ve put on more than 10 pounds since November. Chinese, I love you, but you don’t love me.
Whole 30As of Wednesday, I made it through 30 days of eating whole, unprocessed food. No legumes, dairy, soy or bread. No Sex With Your Pants On (SWYPO) foods like paleo pancakes/bread/muffins etc. and lots of black coffee (kind of gross).

It’s been a week since I’ve been officially done with my Whole 30.
The verdict?
SW: 153.2
CW: 141.6
Total pounds lost: 11.6

It’s amazing what eating real food can do for you.

My pants fit again so I celebrated with a shopping spree during Back to School Tax-free Shopping Weekend (even though I have no kiddos I still love a good sale) and a trip to a local grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free bakery in town called Nerdy Birdy Cookie Company. It was delish and worth the 30-day wait. Yesterday, I went to the county fair with a friend and tasted lots of terrible things so I still feel kind of terrible but tomorrow is another day.

Now that I’ve had the cheat day I’m ready for another 30.

Have you ever done a Whole 30?

    I really fairly healthy, but I do not believe in the restricted nature of a diet like Whole 30. Even if 95% of my diet fits their requirements, not going to do it. All kinds of crazy-thinking disordered eating when I even think about it.
