Acer75 Posted February 7, 2013 Share Posted February 7, 2013 I finished my first Whole 30 on the 31st . Wow, I just realized I am already 4 days into my second round... I lost a few days because I took last weekend and gave myself a bit of a break from it. I had a little bit of cheese last Friday night with dinner and a glass of wine. Friday night was my celebratory dinner after completing the first Whole30. I made Chicken breast stuffed with Ricotta, sundried tomatoes, ( from my garden and dried myself) asparagus spears and a sprinkling of parmesan all covered in butter (not clarified but locally grown pastured nonetheless). It was mouthwatering..and it paired well with a nice glass of wine. Saturday I was out an about and we ate out for lunch and I indulged again . I had a burger with all the fixins and regular ketchup/mayo . It was served with homemade fires... They were unbelievably good! I finished out my lunch with a Breve latte and a pumpkin bar. I actually only ate half of it and ate the other half Sunday. It wasn't overly big anyways but as you can see I really let loose for lunch on Saturday. I only felt guilty for a split second prior to tasting that oh so yummy pumpkin bar. Yes, I allowed myself a few guilty pleasures but I honestly felt fine. I never got sick or suffered from any ill effects. Best ofall, I went right back on Monday and I haven't had any issues. I think giving us ourselves that liberty , occasionally, being the key thing here, only helps to teach us better habits in the long run... everything in moderation. I know for myself I will really have to be cautious. It's easy to start down that path of never never land, never to return that is..! However, I think W30 has certaintly helped me in that department . I no longer feel like I am actually missing anything on the W30..I feel nourished and healthy so when I do want something not so great, it's not the end of the world. That for me.. is HUGE! For Round number 2, I have decided that ( although it's considered sort of noncompliant I think) I will be switching the conconut milk I had been using in my morning coffe, for the first whole30, and replacing it with Heavy Whipping Cream.(pastured ofcourse). Prior to whole 30 I was slugging down loads of 1/2 and 1/2 in my 3-4 cups of coffee before 8:00 a.m. During my first Whole 30, I really missed that half and half , more than anything else, and it was really rough... (tears of despair one day as I recall !) but I realize I am better off without it. So, heavy whipping cream it is. Crutch?? maybe.. but I don't think it's the end of the world as far as non compliancy . I did read an article that it was one of those that was considered ok. I don't use alot if and I have cut my coffee consumption down to only a cup and a half in the morning. Looking forward to Day 60...and beyond. Looking forward to hear any other lessons learned from round two'ers! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
