Roadtrip help: I’m traveling this weekend (riding in car, staying in hotel, no ability to cook; food in coolers, may have small fridge and microwave in hotel, may not). I’ll be on days 8,9 and 10 of my first Whole30. Any and all suggestions/tips/advice on food welcome!
Hi everyone! I am currently in a yoga teacher training program that requires me to drive to Chicago, IL twice a month. This upcoming Friday will be my first time making the trek while eating clean! My boyfriend and I normally stop at Chipotle on the way there and on the way back, and I understand we would be fine to do that if we made sure to only eat their w30-approved options. I'm wondering, however, if y'all had suggestions of great w30-approved restaurants in Indianapolis (halfway point) or Chicago (for over that weekend). Or if you have any suggestions about foods that we could take with us? I'm considering bringing the slow cooker along and cooking while I'm there, but that would probably be the last resort! Thank you so much in advance for your help!
I know this is only a question I can answer for myself... but I'd love a sound off from all of you lovely people. My family started the W30 with me, and now it's just me They are still eating what I'm cooking, so they're mostly compliant, but not totally. Which is fine. We changed our family's culture of food and that's what I really wanted. DH is happy with where he's at and didn't mind ending early; he got most of the benefits that he was going to get and he's cool with it. My daughter goes to the check out line and doesn't even want a sucker anymore. It's been really great. I, however, just felt like I owed it to myself to see this through. I just wanted to finish and see exactly where I would be at the end of thirty days. I still had two weeks left, so I decided to keep plugging along. I found out the other day, though, that we are having a conference three hours away on Day 30... ugh. Not only would I have to pack all three meals, but I would have to explain to everyone why I'm not eating pizza and cookies like a normal person. Doable? Yes. Looking forward to it? Not at all. If there's anything I hate more it's refusing someone's hospitality. (And there would be literally nothing there that is compliant. So there would be no nibbling to just be a part of the group... for the whole day.) These are people that we see regularly and network with on a professional, spiritual and relational level. The last thing I want is to be THAT person. So should I end a day early? After 29 days is all I'm doing just finishing for my own pride? Because if it's really just about me and my pride I don't think it would be worth it... know what I mean? I don't want to make the day about me and my thirty day milestone. I just want to enjoy the fellowship with these wonderful people without making them feel bad that I can't eat what they're eating or making it awkward. So Day 30. Is it worth it?
