I’m halfway. I’m halfway. Half the fucking way!
Yes I am celebrating, no I won’t apologise for the F word, I’m halfway through my Whole30 and feeling amazing!
The second week really felt like no effort at all. Especially compared to week one.
I did feel quiet tired at the beginning of the week but from past experience, I knew this would be the case. And I also knew that I’d have a little difficulty with number two’s (which was a big part of the last two quits) so I made sure that I had some help on hand for that too. Or two as the case may be!
WHAT’S DIFFERENT THIS TIME?
I think its my mindset. I went into the Whole30 this time to get a better handle on my nutrition and to kick my Sugar Dragon. The last couple of rounds were probably more about continued weight loss and chasing that magical goal weight. But I don’t care about my scale weight any more. I care about how good I feel, how much sleep I get and whether I’m fueling myself for my workouts. I’m not weighing, measuring or logging my food and that takes heaps of the headache and the worrying away.
THIS WEEKS CHALLENGES
I won’t lie – I am concerned that my portion sizes are above the ‘recommended WLS serving’ but I stop when I am full, I continue to eat slowly and I drink my water. So those worrys can just sit there and be still.
THIS WEEKS SUCCESSES
Half way. Thats my success. Delicious and nutritious meals, keeping up our workouts and even taking a rest day. And getting over that grump period. Thank fuck for that!
WEEK TWO GALLERY
Plans for Week Three – keep on keeping on! The days are starting to fly by and now I’m starting the countdown to our annual Pacific Island trip.
I also want to do from here is update a few of the recipes we have modified to suit us. There’s a wee list though so it might take me some time. Drop me a comment below if there’s one, in particular, you would like and then I can start with those.
