slcampbell2 Posted May 5, 2014 Share Posted May 5, 2014 Started on April 7th...finishing tomorrow. My fiance and I had a crazy whole30 experience that has proven that if you're dedicated and want something, you'll do whatever it takes to get there. Justin's uncle passed away April 15th. We were well into our w30 and had to travel to Michigan for 5 days. I suggested giving up w30 for now because I thought it would be impossible to continue while we were gone. I was actually nervous about being away from my kitchen and relying on others to understand what we were doing. We powered through and made it work. Preparation was key and finding a local Whole Foods in Ann Arbor saved us. We didn't get as much protein as we should have during that time, but we made do with what we could. I went away to the beach and brought food to prepare. It was fine. I wasn't nervous. In fact, I felt empowered to cook for a friend and show her that w30 meals are delicious, if not better than just eating clean. This past weekend my mom and I travelled to DC so that I could try on wedding gowns. I was really nervous they weren't going to fit, but my stylist said that there was no way I was the size that I told them I was and had to clamp the dresses quite a bit. That felt really good to know that my body HAS changed despite being unable to weigh myself. I even continued to eat w30 compliant while in DC and felt really good while I was there. The past few weeks flew by - I kept telling myself, "you can do ANYTHING for 30 days" and man...with a little determination, willpower, and support, it's completely true. I've gained confidence, to be able to say NO to food that does nothing to fuel my body/mind, I've lost inches and pounds (not sure what yet...I'll let ya know tomorrow and I've never felt better with sleep, mental clarity, my skin is clear....the list goes on and on. Anyone else find themselves reflecting on the eve of the end of their w30 experience? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
