dlgallian Posted August 14, 2014 Share Posted August 14, 2014 So... I did it! It wasn't perfect (I accidentally had some alcohol one night, after my friend informed me that the "refresher" he made me had "just a tiny bit of rum in it"), but I decided not to restart, and I'm ok with that even if it means I didn't do a "real" whole30. But I stayed away from the things I know I don't do well on (dairy, grains, sugar, legumes), and I feel really good and am no longer bloated, and have lost a few pounds and am sleeping better, and just yesterday finally got a surge of something I could call tigers blood. This morning on my way to work I thought, I'm going to treat myself to a latte!! but then I got to the coffee shop and thought, wait... I'm not hungry. I don't really WANT a latte. So I passed. I decided I'd save it for this Saturday, for the drive up to my friend's bachelorette party in Napa. When I can really enjoy it and savor it and get it from the cafe I know I like, not the one where the lattes are hit and miss. Small victory! Honestly, the only thing I plan on changing is having a glass of wine or a cocktail with friends, and a latte maybe once a week, plus some other indulgences that are really, truly worth it. I will stay compliant at home, always. Anyway, just wanted to shout it from the rooftops! And you can sure bet I will enjoy the heck out of that chilled glass of rose tonight.
