Happy Monday! With only three Mondays left in the school year, I am one happy girl.
But today, I'm here to talk about my Whole 30 adventure.
First, let's talk about the response from my friends and family.
Basically, I can roll up all of the responses into two general comments:
1. You're doing WHAT? What are you going to eat? How can you live off of that? Are you CRAZY?
2. How awesome! I want to do it too!
Before you get mad at my friends who fall into the #1 category, let me take up for them for just a second. I meant what I said when I told you I eat like a teenage boy. My best friend Kara literally said, "Where's my best friend and what have you done with her?" when she found out. And considering I don't eat any vegetables except for green beans and fried okra (it counts, okay. Back off. Please), they are totally justified in this response. It is a bit extreme, which is partly why I like it. The more extreme, the more accomplished I feel when it's all over.
Btw, Kara called me yesterday for all of the specifics; she's thinking of starting Whole30 with a friend from work. You can do it, Kara. Just say no to Sour Patch Kids and Diet Dr. Pepper and you got this.
The good news is: week one is officially over. I've heard it's the hardest week. Let's hope so because Tuesday's headache was a force to be reckoned with. I do feel much, much better and am now having very few cravings. And while I'm in no way doing this for weight loss, I'd be lying if I said that wouldn't be AWE-SOME, and I swear my clothes are looser already.
My favorite I ate last week:
this here smoothie.
Super easy. Super quick.
Just mix one and half frozen bananas, one to one and a half cups of strawberries (frozen or fresh), and 3/4 a cup (or so depending on how many strawberries-- you just want enough to add some liquid to help it blend) fresh squeezed or no sugar added orange juice. Easy peasy and fab-u-lo-so.
Here's hoping your week is off to a great start and that my will power keeps on trucking for the next twenty-two days.
