Week 2 of the Whole30 and I haven’t died yet. In fact, I’m starting to believe the hype….
Day 8-9: For the love of Gosling, my pants are TIGHTER
Ugh, my pants have been tighter. That’s why I am doing this dumb thing. But, I am not sure that they are tighter on Day 8 than they were on Day 1. Praise G.
Start of week two and I am feeling pretty good. My kitchen is stocked with fish, veggies and fruit and I am ready to do the damn thing. And for the first time in my entire life, I am craving a big glass of milk. Which is annoying. You always want what you can’t have, am I right ladies?
I also had my first moral dilemma over agave nectar. I bought some frozen fish that was marinated with a teeny bit of agave nectar. I really wanted to try it and agave nectar was better then sugar…so…how bad could it be right? I stood in front of the freezer for a solid minute, just holding the fish longingly, before I threw it back in and opted for a simple salmon fillet. A small battle, but a win none-the-less.

Day 10-11: The Hardest Day
Yes, the Whole30 is hard. Really hard. But, I am determined to kick it’s ass. Cheating is not an option for me.
Days 12-15 Boundless Energy! Now give me that damn Twinkie
Lol, nope. No boundless energy for this girl. In fact, I fell asleep at 9pm on Friday night and slept for 14 hours. 14 sweet, sweet, alcohol-free hours of beautiful sleep. Followed by a full day of healthy self-care aka spending a large majority of the day in my pizza pajamas reading, writing, napping and Netflix binging. I find days like this super important to my mental well-being. Others might be bored to tears spending an entire day just “being” and enjoying quiet aloneness, but can we all agree that sometimes we just “can’t even”?
The “hardest” part of a lazy weekend – snacking. Or the lack there of. It is so easy to snack when you are bored and I should know because I am the reigning queen of snacking. Now that my only options are fruits, veggies or eggs, snacking is less desirable. I have also noticed that after two weeks of eating whole foods, you aren’t even that hungry between meals. Which is a V new experience for me.
A note about eggs, they are great, but please get them away from me (for now). I have eaten more eggs in 14 days than probablly my whole life. Time to start finding some eggless Whole30 breakfast recipes. If you have any recommendations, PLEASE leave them in the comments. I’m begging you. #nomoreeggs
