So I started off the week with intentions of starting my 2nd round of Whole30 but as the weeks gone by I’ve realized I’d rather create my own challenge. Nothing against Whole30 - I absolutely loved it & 100% agree with & recommend it - but I want to do something I know I can live with, not just a 30 day challenge. What I’ve essentially come up with is a Whole30 inspired lifestyle.
Here I go rambling again..
I’m still cooking 95% of my own meals… Grilled chicken, LOTS of veggies, very very little dairy, no sweets.. that kind of thing. I’m still keeping to aiming to eat whole foods but if I want that sandwich that happens to have cheese on it, or that spice that happens to have sugar in it - I’m going to let myself have it. I can live with that. As long as it’s not an ‘all the time’ deal. I know that those things are ok every now & then & in small amounts. I feel like doing it this way will make it so I don’t feel the need to binge after completely cutting out everything for a month, or however long the challenge is.
Anyway! Lunch was yummy.. Roasted, seasoned carrot chips & a turkey burger with my fav, mashed avocado. Happy Sunday y’all!
Let me take a second to be excited about a few things.
1) I brought clothes to change into post crossfit before we went to get our nails done. My jeans were too right to roll up, well my calves were too big hahah so I took a chance and borrowed a skirt from Kim. This maxi skirt is Kim’s!! And it’s a small. I mean it’s stretchy but dang it fits and looks like it fits!!
2) I was searching for baby fin and old navy’s denim was on sale. I haven’t tried jeans/bottoms on in a while so I decided to try out 14s and 16s. 16 is currently the smallest I own. The 14s slipped on like butter and the 16s were too big and I cried happy and surprised tears. I had a moment in my Old Navy dressing room y’all. And I bought these shorts because they are 14 and only 13 dollars.
Happy proud times.
SO proud of this girl right here… She has worked so hard for all of this - such an inspiration!! ❤️YOU TORI!!
Georgia for the night - hair coloring sleepover party with my favorite fromlazytolively!
Welp, as I previously posted, I finished Whole30 & the decided I deserved to eat what I hadn’t been able to eat. So for the next couple of days I got the chance to eat a little pizza, fries, & Mexican & you know what? None of it was as good as I remembered.. In fact, most of it made me feel sick. So what did I do? Your girl went shopping & filled her fridge with Whole30 approved foods again. I’ll still let myself have a little bit of junk food when I want but I’ve got a better control over what I’m choosing to eat these days & that feels amazing.
G’day to my fellow fitblrs!
ITS NOT SEWING SUPPLIES!
My question is how does every single person identify with this, is it like a secret rule to use those for sewing supplies?
I did it. I actually did it.
I honestly didn’t think I’d make it past 7 days, but I did. It was challenging, I was moody, I wanted to cheat - but I didn’t.
I think this challenge has done more for me mentally than anything. It’s changed the way I think about foods. I now know I don’t NEED a lot of the things I thought I did before. I’ve decided to pretty much stick with it. I’ll make a few exceptions to make it my own, but all in all, this is how I want to eat. This is how I want to live. I highly recommend this to anyone needing that extra help in being able to say you’ve got full control over food.
Oh yeah, & I’m down 16 lbs. :D
