Recapping the fourth week of my second Whole30!
I am officially done! Today is July 1st and day 30 was yesterday. I am writing this on Thursday night though, I haven’t officially celebrated yet. If you missed my other recaps, you can find them here:
I will be giving an overall recap next week once I weigh myself and weigh in on how I really felt during the past month. Overall I think I felt pretty great. Lets get into this last week though.
Last week I complained I was tired of meal prepping and wanted to be done. This week I could see the light at the end of the tunnel and knew I just had to power though. We had two parties last weekend and I couldn’t eat or drink at them. I made sure I ate beforehand and just drank a lot of water. It would have been nice to have an alcoholic beverage in hand, but I really didn’t need one. Other people were not drinking as well, which made it a little better.
I did have somewhat of a cheat this week though. I had a meeting at local juice shop and got a smoothie bowl there. I made the meeting there and I knew I was probably going to get something. I just really wanted a freaking smoothie. It was just banana, avocado, and then topped with coconut and chia seeds. Everything organic and no sweeteners. If that is the worst I did, then I am fine with it.
Things I miss?
I think it is quite obvious that I miss my smoothies. I usually don’t even get them when I am out. I make them at home since it is cheaper and I specifically know what is going in them. I try not to use too much fruit and add veggies. Somedays I just don’t want eggs.
But that being said, I have enjoyed my eggs as of lately. They keep me pretty full and I usually get in some healthy fats, fruit, and veggies along with them.
Real life stuff
Since Whole30 is over, I don’t think I will go crazy in my eating. I want to follow the reintroduction part for foods and see what truly affects me. This weekend is 4th of July though, so I will be having some alcohol. I am planning on sticking to the basic framework of Whole30. Meat, seafood, veggies, fruit, healthy fats. I am not going to be as strict though and incorporate some off plan foods when I feel appropriate. We have a wedding and then a beach vacation in August that I want to feel my best on!
Also, I ate a sh*t ton of fruit this past week. I just can’t help it. It is all so fresh! And I was a little tired of eating meat. Really looking forward to see how my body reacts to beans.
How did you final week of the Whole30 go? Did you finish strong or were you over it by then?
