Guys! Today is day 16/60 for my whole60! In case you are new here, I promise I am not only a foodie blogger. I am just in the midst of a Whole30 x 2, so it is consuming my life. Since I have committed to sixty days, rather than the normal thirty, I’m realizing that each quarter of this marathon is an accomplishment in itself.
So how am I feeling now that I have given up wine (i.e. all booze), added sugar (processed as well as things like honey), grains of all sorts (I miss my rice), soy and legumes, and dairy? I’m feeling awesome. Here is my Day-15-Run-Down for ya:
My mind // Awesome! My mind seems clearer. I know it sounds crazy but my thoughts aren’t as jumbled. I’d say this definitely ups my game a bit in the sarcasm department.
My skin // Clear! Probably TMI, but I didn’t even break out when good ole Great Aunt Flo decided to visit last week!
My weight // Per the rules, you can’t weigh yourself for the entire 30 days. HOWEVER, my belly seems flatter and my pants seem looser. Huzzah!
My sleep // Most people have reported a change in their sleeping patterns, for the good. Personally, I’m still exhausted. It may just be because I’m working too many jobs though.
My cravings // While I’d love a glass of wine (because what’s The Bachelor without a bold glass of red?) I’m not really craving anything. After my 7 Days of Gluten a couple of months ago, I know that this is exactly the lifestyle I need to be living. This has been my easiest whole30 yet.
My struggles // I still want to snack in the evenings. Even when I’m not hungry. I just really, really want to snack! In this respect, I’m lucky my husband works nights. If he were sitting next to me on the couch eating popcorn, I’d probably pay him off for one measly kernel.
My loves // Hot tea, Sparkling Water, London Broil, Whole30 Compliant Hot Wings and Sweet Potato Hash. Oh and my amazing support group with the #2catsWhole30 folks! (Search that hashtag on Instagram to see what we’ve all been up to!)
What I’ve learned // I learned this way back during my first whole30, but it never ceases to amaze me. SUGAR IS EVERYWHERE. It’s like the termite of the food world: evil and up to no good, hiding in just about every single nook and cranny it can get in to.
