MichelleG84 Posted July 16, 2015 Share Posted July 16, 2015 I started my first Whole30 July 1st. I can't believe I'm half way through already. I feel amazing. I have lost weight (my bra is loose, my pants are super loose, as are my shirts), my mind is clear, I have energy, I all around feel amazing. Last night my daughter didn't want to go to sleep and wouldn't until close to 3 am. I ended up getting only 5 hours of sleep (I know I know that's not great) but woke up feeling energetic and ready to take on the day. I love that what I eat keeps me full and I no longer feel the need to snack. I love that the food I'm eating is great food and fresh. I love that I'm cooking more often and my daughter loves this too because she gets to help. My mood and patience are soooo much better. Prior to starting I felt like I was angry, frustrated and/or stressed all of the time and now I feel at peace almost. I definitely see myself continuing this lifestyle from now on. Sure I may have non compliant foods now and then but for the most part I don't even want any of the junk. I'm not having cravings anymore. I seriously thought that the whole time I'd miss bread. I loved bread but I really don't need it. I went into this looking for a lifestyle change and I am not disappointed. Over the past few days I've branched out a bit foodwise. I made the perfect mayo from the Whole30 book and it really is delicious. I was never really a huge fan of mayo to begin with but this is amazing. I've also had zoodles (zucchini noodles) for the first time and they were awesome. The chimichurri sauce is so delicious that I put it on everything. I can't wait to try more recipes from the book. Here's what I've had so far today. M1: 4 hardboiled eggs with s&p and o brother that's hot habanero hot sauce (my favorite), 2 Aidells Chicken Apple Sausage and some berries. M2: Tuna salad (can of tuna, diced onion, diced celery, diced jalapeno with s&p and whole30 mayo over spinach with diced tomato and my favorite hot sauce. I also had a trenta iced unsweetened passion tea from starbucks (I'm at work so I indulged) M3: Not sure yet, probably a burger or something when I get home. I also have an instagram where I post pics of my food creations @whole_30_misha Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
