As promised, here are my Non-Scale Victories and daily recaps. If you want to read why I am doing Whole30, click here. If you want to research what it is, click here. I’m feeling AWESOME! I took a picture on Day 1 and I can already see so much change in my body in just 10 days.
Day 6: Waking up without any headaches or sugar withdrawal these days! I have to tell ya, my dry skin is becoming more and more a thing of the past! I am still a bit flaky, but I’m noticing a correlation between avocados and my skin. The more I eat, the less dry I am. Dinner: Crockpot chicken, sautéed brussels sprouts, and baked potatoes.
Day 7: Today was a rough one for me. I was cramping like crazy…….so I’m not going to recap the day physically. I am calling this one for what it was: being a woman. But I will say I only experienced cramping for one day! Dinner MUST MAKE: Egg Roll in a Bowl. I got coconut aminos at Whole Foods, but you can order them here. Husband approved.
Day 8: Feeling much better today! My anxiety is at an all time low. There’s a certain “buzz” that I normally feel, and a tightness in my chest. That’s fading. I find myself not worrying about the future or uncertainty like I usually do. Dinner: Shepherd’s Pie. This one was difficult to make and, honestly, I probably won’t make it again. We didn’t LOVE it. But we did have leftovers for lunch!
Day 9: My clothes are fitting so much better. My low abs are starting to make themselves known! Nothing crazy to report, other than Whole30 is starting to feel normal. It’s becoming easier to just stay on track and not think about it so much. BEST Dinner yet: Cracklin’ Chicken with roasted potatoes and broccoli. OMG. I can’t handle how delicious this was!
Day 10: My workouts and teaching energy are off the charts! I feel strong. Tonight was probably the hardest it’s been to stay positive, because we went out to eat for the first time. I called the restaurant ahead to ask what they cooked their meats in and made sure they didn’t use any oils I can’t have. Dinner: Greek salad with grilled chicken and lemon/oil dressing! (I ended up having a boiled egg and apple when I got home- they were cheap on the chicken!)
That’s all for now, folks. I think I’ll wait 10 more days for another update. We are road-tripping to Indiana, so I’ll be able to include some travel tips. 🙂
