Whole 30, Round 1 Recap

Happy Sunday!  Today is Day 31 of my Whole 30 plan which technically means I'm "finished."  People keep telling me "it's almost over...yay"  but really it's only getting started.  Sure I could jump off the plan, but then the bad habits would slowly creep back in and eventually the weight and I still have lots of lbs to lose!

I lost a total of 12 pounds in 30 days, but I have about 20 more pounds to go!  

But before I tell you what I'm going to do now that these 30 days are done, I'll share with you what the last 30 days have been like!

The Whole 30 mood chart really is spot on!  The first two weeks are the worst.  I was hungry, shaky at times, CRANKY, moody and tired.  I never got that actual sick feeling, aka the carb flu, but I definitely wasn't feeling my best.  I think what got me through was knowing that it was normal and there was an end in sight.  I also did not work out during these adjustment period.  I actually didn't work out much during these last 30 days.  I really made my focus on food prep and staying on plan 100%.  


So what is my plan moving forward?  

I actually plan on sticking to the W30 basics 90% of the time, but I will allow myself an indulgence every now and then like a glass of wine or a dessert.  If I ever do add these prohibited items into my diet I will be sure to watch my body closely to see what affect, if any, those items do to be now that I'm detoxed from them!

It's interesting that I thought dairy would be one of the hardest items to quit.  I love cheese, queso, milk in my lattes, and butter, but now non of those things even sound good!  The sight of cheese grosses me out and I got a whiff a butter the other day and almost gagged.  I'm sure I'll eventually add them back occassioanly, but for now I'm perfectly content without them.
