Are you guys sick of me talking about the Whole 30 yet?
If so, I’m sorry! The good news is that there are only two weeks left of it, which means I am officially half way through!
The last two weeks have been very interesting and I am not going to lie, I’m feeling kind of really proud of myself.
So lets jump right into it, shall we?
Day 8 – Day 10: Nothing different.
I maybe felt a little more bloated than usual (which is normal) but other than that I felt pretty much the same. I was super proud for not giving in over the weekend but I couldn’t help but dread the next 3 weeks and all I could think about was how hard they would be. I was starting to get bored and wondering if all of this was worth it.
Day 11: I had a smoothie.
Smoothies are normally a big no no in the Whole 30 Program. This is because even though everything in the smoothie may be “Whole 30 approved” the program would rather you eat your calories than drink them. I had a smoothie though because I forgot my lunch, worked out during my break and I was starving. I didn’t count this as cheating because I really didn’t have a choice and I needed fuel. Which is, Whole 30 approved. For my smoothie I had fresh banana, strawberries, egg whites (for protein), spinach and non-sweet almond milk.
Day 12: I almost cheated. Big time.
Like big time, big time. I had a really stressful week at work and I convinced myself that I deserved a glass of wine. I convinced myself to the point that I called Colton, informed him of my decision, drove to the store, bought a really nice bottle of wine, got home…. and then…. I couldn’t open it. I literally could not get myself to do it. As much as I wanted too, I couldn’t get myself to cheat the program.
Day 13: So much energy.
I woke up Saturday morning feeling like a million bucks. I was so proud of myself for not giving in Friday, plus I was bouncing off the walls with energy. I woke up, went to a kickboxing class and had the best day with Colton furniture shopping. I was seriously just in the best mood all day because I felt so great. I also woke up that morning and saw a crazy difference in my stomach. You could actually see my “ab lines” which was a really exciting moment!
Day 14: Even more energy.
They say you’ll get a crazy amount of energy around day 10 but mine clearly didn’t hit until day 13 & 14. I was just so incredibly proud of myself this Sunday for sticking with it the past two weeks that I felt like I could take on the world. Colton and I woke up, went to shoot, went to lunch and then went to the grocery store. I did all of my meal preps, cleaned out Colton’s closet, went to home depot, wrote two blog posts and started a DIY project all before 9:30 p.m. I was like the energizer bunny.
