Whole30 Week 3 Recap
Week 3 of the Whole30 was….bad. I cheated….a LOT. Let me explain. I live in Atlanta. And when it snows in Atlanta, the city shuts down. It has snowed twice this month, which is really really unusual (global warming) Unfortunately, I was not prepared for this. So not only did I not have work, but there were no stores or restaurants open that had vegan options. So I gave into my craving for pizza, and I indulged. UGH. I know I know.
For a slightly food-addicted person such as myself, this cheat set me off for the rest of the week. Then it was a bagel on Thursday, and popcorn on Friday, ALL BAD. Friday night I went grocery shopping to prevent me from continuing my bender, and Saturday I got myself together and meal prepped. I’m back guys, I’m good. I will not let this define me! LOL. You HAVE to be prepared. Pack snacks and buy foods that fit into the plan. Don’t let yourself get caught without foods you can eat, because if you get hungry and you’re like me, all bets are off.
I’m not making excuses, I’m just acknowledging my behavior and working on improving. I would like to complete the final stretch without any issues. Wish me luck! I have 10 more days of the challenge.
My Favorite Whole30 Staples
Fats are my fave. I’ve done some research and fats, along with protein keep you really full and satisfied when you give up a lot of your refined carbs.
- Sweet Potato Zoodles
- Butter Coffee
- RX Bars (the maple sea salt ones) these are not considered exactly on target, but they are good for me for work and my morning commute 🙂 all natural ingredients
- Trader Joes Ghee
- Unrefined coconut oil
