    My Whole 30 Log - June 2020

    Alright, so back to the beginning! My birthday was this weekend and so was the fourth! I ate 100% compliant foods on my birthday and the fourth, but I did have cocktails. Then yesterday, I had greek food. I don't think I went completely off the rails because the meal was healthy, but it did have some pita and hummus/ tzatziki which is obviously not whole 30. I do not regret my decision. I ate WAY healthier than I normally would have had I not done whole 30 up until this point. I am still proud of the fact that on my birthday I turned down lobster mac and cheese, shrimp and gritz, birthday cake, ice cream etc! I blew out my candle in a fruit cup with whipped coconut milk. However, drinking definitely did NOT make me feel great and I am excited to get back on the whole 30 bandwagon again. - Breakfast: smoothie - Lunch: rainbow veggie salad - Dinner: Chicken, lime, cilantro soup

    Thank you There have certainly been some challenging moments throughout. For example, the eggplant dish I made last night was a total bust, all I wanted was some ice cream but I refrained haha.

    Day 10: - Breakfast: roasted potatoes, scrambled egg with tomatoes, chicken sausage, and green onion - Lunch: smoothie - Dinner: Lettuce wraps with bacon, hard boiled egg, cucumber, tomato and homemade ranch Can't even believe how little I think about food! Before embarking on whole 30 I gave frequent thought to what I would be eating next. I found myself snacking often and over-eating because most meals involved "food with no brakes". Now I eat WHEN I am hungry, not before I am hungry. I stop when I am full, not when my plate is clean.

    To share my reasons for starting whole 30 again... My last whole 30 was four years ago, during which I lost 8 pounds and was able to find food freedom! I have been falling into bad habits again and found myself over eating out of boredom or emotions and rarely eating mindfully or based on internal cues. I was consistently eating foods that did not make me look or feel my best. I hope to target which food groups are less than ideal for me. I know whole 30 is not a weight loss diet, but that is one of my main motivations for doing this. After completing this round, my goal is to eat whole 30 all the time until I reach my goal weight. Day 7: - Breakfast: Rainbow veggie salad with lemon vinagrette - Lunch: 2 jerky sticks and handful of macadamia nuts - Dinner: shrimp and sopressata skewers and kale salad and roasted broccoli
