I am past the halfway point of the #whole30 challenge and I am still counting down the days until I can eat peanut butter, bread and ice cream (in moderation of course). In case you missed my first post on my #whole30 challenge, read it here, or if you want to read my week 2 recap, read it here. Read my Week 3 recap below!
PART 2- WEEK 3
Woke up with a headache this morning, I think it’s from not drinking enough water and going to spin yesterday. I’m also still not caught up on sleep yet so an iced latte with almond milk and caramel from Dunkin Donuts sounded amazeballs this morning. Oh and I had an event to go to after work so I was surrounded by a pasta station, alcohol and a smorgasbord of desserts for a solid hour and a half. Ugh today was a long day and I would really love a strong martini.
Not sure if it was the alfalfa sprouts from my turkey burger or the turkey burger itself, but if I have another bite I will seriously vomit. THANK GOD FOR POTATOES. Since I started this I have eaten: sweet potatoes, red potatoes, regular potatoes, purple potatoes and fingerling potatoes. And it’s only day 16. All I can say is that roasted potatoes are THE SHIT and I had no idea this many potatoes even existed.
I swear, I really feel like I can’t look forward to the weekend anymore because of this diet. In my opinion, the weekend is for drinking, brunch, sushi, getting ice cream and sleeping in. The only thing I can do from that list that is even remotely enjoyable is sleeping in. Plus tomorrow I have to go to Flemings for dinner and they have the best blueberry lemon drop martini, which I won’t be able to drink. On a side note, I’m not craving sweets as much anymore but it’s still depressing to not be able to eat or indulge in anything.
Woke up today with another headache and I am not sure why. Plus I haven’t been sleeping well the last few nights. I am not going to have any fruit after dinner and see if that helps me stay asleep. I decided to schedule a massage for tomorrow because I fucking deserve it. On a positive note, my coworker told me that my skin was glowing today *totally feeling myself*
Ugh sitting at Flemings watching everyone drink blueberry lemon drop martinis while eating bread and butter was so hard. Luckily I ordered a baked potato and to zero surprise, I pulled out some ghee from my purse and lathered that baby up. I will say that I woke up this morning feeling skinny. Like I looked in the mirror at myself naked for a solid ten minutes and was again *totally feeling myself* Even though I woke up feeling skinny, I still wish I had a blueberry lemon drop martini.
I got my massage last night (a 90 minute relaxation massage if you’re wondering) and I woke up this morning feeling like I got hit by a bus. My body is so sore and all I want to do is lay in bed and watch Netflix (and eat some Ben and Jerrys but we all know that’s not going to happen) but instead I have to go to the grocery store and meal prep for the week. Oh and I am going to make some lemon cookies for work since I ave been so sour tehehehe. Let’s hope I won’t want to kill myself during the baking process.
Lemon cookies because my attitude has been sour is the marketing side of me coming out. So usually when I bake anything, I lick the bowl. And when I say lick, I mean there is no more batter left because I have scraped it all off with either my tongue or my fingers (what a nice visual). Licking the batter is THE BEST PART OF BAKING. Well let me just say that this baking experience did not involve any licking. Instead it involved a sad walk to the kitchen sink where I washed all the delicious batter out of the bowl *wipes tears off of face*. My coworkers seemed to really enjoy them which is all that really matters *insert eye roll*. Baking and not eating any of my cookies has really shown me that my mind is a lot stronger than I think it is. I remember before I started the Whole30, sugar would consume my thoughts after every meal and now it might make me sad a little but it doesn’t affect me the way it used to. That’s progress right?
