As of last night, I'm halfway though Whole30 and I'm feeling strong. Scott and I were talking after dinner last night about Whole30 and we both mentioned how good we feel. We are more even-keel. We don't have any energy peaks or dips throughout the day. Our clothing is fitting a bit looser and while we haven't felt the tiger blood yet, we feel good.
I braved a birthday party with delicious looking treats this past week but found a few things to snack on. There was fresh fruit and date-nut balls that fit right into the Whole30 diet. The cake looked delicious but I was able to avoid it because I wasn't hungry. Molly ate an extra bite for me and told me, "It is really good!"
One thing I'm grateful for through this challenge is how I am keeping our food simple. No crazy recipes with a billion ingredients, just simple, good food. In fact, just last night, we had a friend of Scott's over for dinner and I made Salmon with a purchased (whole30) sauce, potatoes and broccoli. I kept it simple which meant the kitchen wasn't a mess, conversation was lovely and we kept to Whole30.
Jenny On The Spot is doing another Whole30 and I really enjoyed reading her thoughts on the subject. This is my second Whole30 and the first time I've stuck with it. I don't feel deprived. I feel so energetic and alive which keeps me keeping to the guidelines. I am looking forward to that Tiger Blood though. When is that going to show up?
