Four weeks down! I’m recapping my April Whole30 round 3 week 4 – from how I am feeling, what I am craving, and all the randomness!
We did it! Well almost, only a few more days left. I believe my day 30 is on Tuesday. So so close. I’m 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 4
To be totally honest, last week was kinda meh. My energy is still pretty good, but I didn’t sleep that good a few nights. I would wake up a few times in the middle of the night and didn’t feel as well rested when I did get up. We have been doing a lot of wedding stuff at night and were looking at outdoor furniture online, so that means a lot of screen time before bed. And I was getting to bed a lot later than normal. Those two things together means not as good sleep. So I’m really the only person to blame. I also had a matcha latte a few days, not sure if that is affecting me or not. I need to do some more experimenting.
Things I miss
I kind of really want a smoothie. The weather is getting nicer and nicer any my body is craving more light and refreshing things – all the veggies, fruit, and seafood. While I know technically smoothies are allowed on the Whole30, they are frowned upon. They would much rather you eat your food than drink it and they can also be full of sugar, even though it’s from natural sources.
When I do make smoothies, I try not to pack that much fruit in them and there is usually always at least two veggies and some healthy fat. I do know that usually when I have a smoothie, I am hungry a couple hours later – they just don’t fill me up for as long, unless they are massive, and I crave something afterwards. My brain doesn’t get that satisfied feeling. So even though I am craving them, I am holding off for now.
Real Life Stuff
Nothing really to report on this week. I have noticed over the last few weeks I feel leaner and not as inflamed. I think it has to do with the Whole30 but also not doing as much CrossFit. I obviously haven’t weighed myself since that is against the rules, but I feel like I might have lost some weight? Not sure though. I honestly don’t know if I want to weigh myself right away once the 30 days are done. I am feeling good and I don’t really want a number on the scale to change that.
