MB's Whole30


Recommended Posts

Day 8! I haven't been writing because I've been TOO BUSY COOKING ALL THE TIME.

Seriously. All I do is cook. It is a revelation. I had no idea I could do this! for 8 straight days I've only eaten food I prepared myself, and that feels AMAZING.


 I've been taking photos of all my meals, not to post on IG or anything, just to prove to myself that i"m really doing this. The thing of sitting down to eat! At my dining table! With a napkin and a glass of water! It's incredible. I don't think I've done it more than 5 times in the 12 years I've lived in this apartment-- sat down at the table to eat by myself.


My clothes don't fit any better, I'm exhausted today, and I am really hungry still (it's 10 pm). I'm not sure I ate enough today actually. I'll eat more tomorrow.

I had the coconut soup from the Whole30 book and it was amazing. I made a double batch and froze it.

On Sunday I cooked things for the whole beginning of the week, and lots of days to come-- egg muffins, coconut soup, tomato sauce, ground turkey. the whole shebang.

Busy week this week, so there might be a salad from a place in my future. but that is OK!


Here is my Day 7 reflection from the worksheet.


I find myself craving sweets when it's the end of the day.

sometimes i think i'm hungry but i'm actually just tired.

when i'm craving sugar, i used to eat stevia chocolate, or a mary tart, or a date bar.

during my whole30 I'm going to reach for some nuts and jicama.

when i eat sweet food like fruit I notice-- it's saisfaying.

when i eat salty foods i notice that i want something fresh wih them.

i thought i'd miss rice but i don't.

i didn't think i'd like eating breakfast but it's nice!

i have the hardest time sticking to the whole30 when i'm feeling lonely.

i have the hardest time sticking to the whole30 when i'm... nowhere yet.

when i eat a good breakfast, i feel a little full.

when i prepare a healthy meal from scratch, i feel insanely proud.

since i starte d my whole30, I've noticed:

-that i'm exercising much less

-that i'm waking up earlier

that my energy levels are low today

that my emotions are more stable than they warned me about

that my recovery after exercise? what exercise?

that my body feels the same-- but no digestive distress

that my clothes fit just as tight

that my ulcerative colitis is in great shape.
