Whole30 Days 9-15

Wow. Today marks Day 16 of my Whole30.

I am just barely MORE than halfway through the program, and pretty proud of myself. 

This past weekend, I attended a wedding. A wedding with wine (rosé, y’all!) and cupcakes and Caesar salad in all its tangy dressing gloriousness….and I stuck to the plan. 

I had my bestie Alex over last night for a farewell dinner before she moves to Colorado (I can’t even), and didn’t hardly blink looking at the pizza, breadsticks and giant cookie I ordered. 

I went to Waffle Works in Lake Arrowhead, Sean and I’s fave place in the Village, and ordered a salad and requested a side of olive oil and some lemon wedges when I realized the dressing was somehow creamy. 

I brought snacks and La Croix waters for the drive up, and got an unsweetened green tea at Starbucks on the way back. 

I’m OWNING this plan. 

For dinner last night, I had steak, green beans, and a sweet potato and was so satisfied! 

Whole30 has been really good for me, because it’s been an exercise in discipline, self-control, actually  feeling hunger, and learning that it’s totally ok to politely decline food. 

You can say no. You don’t have to feel obligated to partake in food just because, especially if you’re not even hungry! 

And if you are hungry, there are tons of ways to eat well, eat clean, and be prepared.

I’m eager to see how much I’ve lost at the end of 30 days, but moreso, I want to adapt some of these exclusions into my everyday life moving forward. I don’t miss the lethargy or the bloating! 

I’ll keep you posted!
