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.
As 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.
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?
