Days 5-13

Holy cow this Whole30 isn't for the weak! I've found self control that I never knew I had and more motivation than I've had in months! It's_amazing_what_you_can_do_when_you_put_your_mind_to_it!

Throughout the Whole30 so far there have been temptations and decisions everywhere. Crispy cheese hanging off the quesadillas that I made for lunch the other day, my husband going to Pieology for lunch and_telling_me_about_it, to Target for displaying your amazing selection of Valentine's treats in the bakery, to my awesome daycare mom who offered to bring my coffee (which_I would_have_never_said_no_to_otherwise) and to my son's basketball tournament for having Jet's Pizza aroma filling the air as I fulfilled my 5 volunteer hours.
The days are getting easier and the food is getting less stressful to buy and make. I am gaining more knowledge each day about the Whole30 and the ingredients in the foods we eat daily. I mean really...sugar_is_in_everything! I am surprising myself in the things I am making that I really enjoy that are Whole30 approved. I am not a huge sweets person, but lately even the sight of a little M&M makes me crave chocolate. The dark chocolate bar at the checkout in Trader Joe's was just calling my name.

A few of my breakfasts...


 lunches...

(Homemade dump ranch - Whole30 approved for dip)


and dinners... 




Workouts are getting easier and I am finally feeling like me again. There are days I just want to sit with my kiddos and watch a show or movie after dinner, but_my_workout_is_calling_my_name. We have a love/hate relationship. I love working out and feeling better about myself, I love what it does to my self esteem...I however hate the time it takes away from my family. 


Here's to the next 17 days! To that much more strength to get through it! 3 lbs. down on day 13...I'll_take_it!
