Thank you everyone! I'm still home for the holidays until the end of this week but normally I live in an apartment at school and cook all of my own meals. Most of the meals I make are extremely healthy. I'm more worried about putting an end to snacking and overcoming my sugar addictions. While i love vegetables, i also loveeee chocolate..and baked goods & CHEESE! all snacks in general are just very tempting.. I'm hoping that eating larger meals will help me feel more satisfied and thus, snack less. I used to eat small meals in an attempt to lose weight but that hasn't worked at all for me for the past 4 months and just leaves me feeling unsatisfied. I also believe that I was under a lot of stress last semester with my classes and homework load and that contributed to my unhealthy snacking. I expect for the first couple of weeks of classes to be lighter and I am also taking much easier courses. I will try to be more organized so that I do not find myself in a stressful situation and ruin my whole30!
I was able to get my mom on board (yay!) and we are starting tomorrow 1/4 and both very excited.
I'm making the 7.5 hour drive back to school this Saturday 1/9 and am trying to plan out my road trip food. I was thinking I'd leave around 9 a.m. and eat a filling veggie omelette right before I go. Then maybe I'll buy a lunchbox that keeps food cold and make a tuna salad on top of greens and bring a banana and handful of cashews in case I get hungry later? I'm driving myself so I can stop and eat whenever I need to. What do you guys think? Any road trip snack ideas? Thanks!
