I have felt pretty good up until day 10, "the hardest days." I have strong cravings for chocolate and I want to just stop, but I know I won't. Before this, symptoms have been very mild and have mainly just been fatigue. The hardest thing about Whole30 so far is all the time spent cooking and grocery shopping! I am learning a lot, but I hope I can learn how to save money grocery shopping and meal prep better soon.

Day 10 (con't)

Sirloin steak with broccoli 

I took a nap after dinner instead of going to the gym, I was really tired on day 10.

day 11:

banana and hard boiled egg

blueberry RXbar (snack)

Leftover cabbage soup and an orange. 

 

I've learned to really love oranges during my Whole30; the ones I've been getting from my grocery store are amazing! Today I feel physically lighter and I feel calm (yesterday I felt more anxious, especially b/c of the cravings). I will begin boot camp challenge classes at my gym this evening.

Day 14 (con't):

Plantains fried with coconut oil, cinnamon, sea salt.

Salmon, half an avocado, seafood soup.

Mixed berries (strawberry, blackberry, blueberry) YUM!

Black coffee

 

Day 15:

I'm at the halfway point and I'm feeling pretty great; my clothes feel looser, my mental clarity and energy levels have improved, and I've been able to easily resist desserts and other junk food. I have to say, though, I don't see myself finding dessert any less desirable even though I can say no to it now. But I'm happily surprised at how well I've done at resisting temptation. I think that I will try to take this momentum of healthier eating going after my Whole30 because I can see that it's worth it.
