Three weeks down! I’m recapping my April Whole30 round 3 week 3 – from how I am feeling, what I am craving, and all the randomness!
Over 2/3 of the way there!! I’m in the home stretch! Doing another quick recap of how my Whole30 is going so far – how I am feeling, what I am craving, and everything else. In case you missed it, I talked about why I am doing a 3rd round of the Whole30 here.
April Whole30 Round 3 Week 3
This past week was definitely a test of my will power. On Saturday night we went for drinks at a brewery, out to ramen, and then bowling with our friends. Talk about some temptations! I stuck with water the whole night and got ramen with no noodles, gluten free broth, and extra veggies. While I know this might of been perfect Whole30, there is no such thing as a perfect Whole30 and you just need to make the best possible choices available.
I also went out to lunch at Forthright Cafe, but their menu is pretty easy to navigate, and Michael and I had date night at Picnik, which was a breeze since they are a paleo friendly restaurant and have special menus for certain dietary restrictions. Michael did get orange chicken and it looked amazing and it was so hard for me not to try it, but it had honey on it. And they had a fun margarita that was calling my name.
But I am feeling great, sleeping well, and have consistent energy that I know one beer or some ramen noodles wouldn’t be worth it to give that stuff up. And I’m a pretty all or nothing type person – if I say I am doing something, then I am doing it. So 30 days is happening.
I STILL need to work on not snacking while meal prepping. I usually don’t have a full meal and just end up snacking eating the food I’m making. Mostly veggies and protein, but still, need to work on full meals instead.
Things I miss
While I’m not that big of a drinker anymore (compared to a few years ago), I kind of wanted one this weekend. I don’t need one to have fun, but I like casually drinking beer or a mixed drink with Michael and some friends. And the weather is freaking awesome right now and it perfect patio weather.
Real Life Stuff
I’m definitely not a doctor, but I think my digestion is a little off. And if this is TMI for you, just skip it.
While I am going to the bathroom pretty regularly each morning, I still feel like I am not digesting my food enough. I haven’t been diagnosed, but I also think I was experiencing a little bit of adrenal fatigue. I was talking to my friend Colleen who is an NTP and she thinks there are a few things I can do to help. Even though I eat healthy and workout, you don’t really know what is going on inside. It’s definitely something I want to dig into and work on the next few months.
