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
Day 28! Some of my own personal baby watermelon & turkey burger patties w/mashed avocado + roasted sweet potatoes.
Now, to admit a couple cheats… & I’m doing this because I think it shows just how much of a positive impact Whole30 has had on me. I went to Outback last night & got grilled chicken & sweet potato fries. Now, I’m a ranch dressing kinda girl.. I love it with everything & tons of it. I haven’t had any for the last 28 days & with this type of meal in the past I would have easily gone through 3 little side cups of it. I asked for it last night & didn’t even go through half a side of it - & I was more than satisfied! I literally had 15% of what I would have had a month ago with this kind of meal & I was ok with that!
We are also celebrating my brothers birthday today… So naturally, there’s cake ((& one of my favorite ones at that)). I decided I could handle a very tiny piece since again, I felt like I’ve done really well & legitimately haven’t had any sugar for the last month. I cut literally a SLIVER of cake for myself, had 2 bites & put it down. It wasn’t nearly as good as I remember. I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve only had natural sugars for the last month or what, but it just wasn’t worth it.
All in all, I think this challenge is doing exactly what it was supposed to do & I couldn’t be happier about it.
