I made it through 26 full days and pretty much broke it off this weekend… I still maintained eating healthy and avoid the bad things but there were several dinners out with the boyfriend and brunch with the Tri team and well it’s that time of month (no excuses). But really why I’m writing this is to say how I feel. It’s simple like crap. I prefer the clean eating and actually NOT drinking. This is what it’s all about learning, growing and making this a lifestyle change. I’m on my way. So I’m not giving up I have four more challenge days it won’t be all in a row but I can’t let myself down. Here’s to a sticky Whole30 the next four days.
So unfortunately I may have let a few of you down tonight because I won’t be posting a completed Whole30 day. Tonight I went to the Boston Chamber Holiday Party at the State Room (the million dollar view) and had a glass of my favorite, champagne. Followed by dinner at McCormicks. I just had some clam chowder (not worth it) and a bite of their bead also not worth it but did keep it real with $1 oysters and $1 shrimp as well as some Tuna Tartare so all in all not to bad of a “cheat” if you will. I do want to note that I felt like crap after. I’m liking this new life style and no Lon we calling it a challenge it’s just the way I live.
I finally feel like a normal person who doesn’t surround their life around food. Today was easy in the sense that I packed my meals and didn’t have random cravings. Still can’t beeline it’s been 10 days since I’ve had a lick of sugar.
Day 8 is complete. I was having some major cravings this afternoon for dried mangos and dates. I had to limit myself and stop so I didn’t over indulge. Felt great to get through a whole week successfully. On to week two!
This is a good read. I always got frustrated when people say to me“just eat everything in moderation” well wtf? When I start sometimes I can’t stop and if I do I’m still thinking about that pint of ice cream or bag of corn chips or even cheese (you get the drift). My mom cut the processed foods and sugars and lives a completely new eating lifestyle going on 8 months. She has been telling me over and over to do the same and as always I didn’t listen, until now. It’s clicking and I hope that by the end of my 30 day challenge it will finally sink in and I won’t have this battle anymore.

Keeping this short…completed day four successfully. Felt amazing and full of energy all day until I hit a wall around 4:00 PM. Not sure if it’s my body still adjusting or what, but I was hangry. Wrapped up meeting with clients then headed to a networking event. Happy to report that I didn’t have any cravings or issues with temptations. Went home after and had myself a healthy dinner.
Just wrapped up day three! I have to say that today I felt hungry several times throughout the day. I did prepare and had several snacks handy which made it easy so that I didn’t crave sugars. I don’t think ever in my life I have completely cut sugar, including honey. Feeling good :)
