30 Days of Hard Work's Results:
What you see:
☆22 lbs lost and
☆23.5 total inches gone.
What you DON'T see:
☆Food no longer controls me.
☆Cravings don't tell me what to eat.
☆My sugar addiction took a hike.
☆I have a TON more energy.
☆I'm not a crab ass all the time anymore.
☆I feel amazing
☆I sleep better.
☆I have taken control of MY life back.
All of this in 30 DAYS. I only exercised 3 times because I wanted to see what REAL FOOD would do for my body. I'm beyond impressed. I'm starting another round on Tuesday and this time I'm going to consistently exercise. I can't wait. This is truly only my beginning. <3
Time to hit "post" before I chicken out. Lmaooo

Why? Well, because I have officially completed my Whole30 Challenge! 30 days of hardcore strict compliance of No sugar, No dairy, No grains/gluten, No soy, No alcohol, and No legumes. And I made those 30 days my biiiitch! I know it's not about weight loss but as someone who is 200+ lbs, seeing a loss would sure be nice. That said, I can't wait til tomorrow morning to weigh in and take measurements, tho my biggest reward is definitely how absolutely AMAZING I feel! Going to enjoy a treat or two this weekend (within moderation) and then I'm going for another 30 days. This time, I'm going to incorporate consistent exercise into the mix. See you all on Tuesday!

Day 23 of my Whole30 Adventure and Day 2 of feeling like complete and utter dog crap.
I couldn't even THINK about making dinner for everyone last night, nor making everyone's lunches for today. So I sent my son with money for school lunch, left the hubster on his own (thinking he'd buy lunch) and got up this morning still very queasy to make a compliant lunch for my daughter.
Spent 90% of the day laying on the couch half ass interacting with my 3 year old. Poor kiddo. I hate not being able to give all of me. But she was such a trooper with her little Doc McStuffins Dr Bag. "Mommy, I make you all better?" Awwwww...
The Hubster came home from work and informed me that he didn't buy his lunch today. Instead, he made himself a healthy lunch before work! Shut! Up! He also informed me that when I'm done with my Whole30, he doesn't want his lunches to go back to the way they were. He wants to keep taking the healthier lunches. Whaaaaat?!? That is HUUUGE! He said he feels so much better throughout the day with what I've been packing him. He's not as tired. He's not going crazy with hunger halfway through the day. That right there is a miracle.
I tried to eat today, because I'm soooo damn hungry, but also because I know that my body NEEDS nutrients. All I managed to get down was 2 sips of chicken broth (then ran my ass to the bathroom), natural applesauce which I thankfully kept down, and some scrambled eggs and apple. Those aren't sitting well. I can feel them rebelling in my stomach.
I'm off to bed now to hopefully sleep the rest of this bug away.
Onto Day 24!!
Today started out great. I woke up before my alarm. Then I went back to sleep for a bit. That should've been a warning for me that something wasn't quite right because I've been practically leaping out of bed every morning.
I made myself a delicious breakfast. Enjoyed every bite of my steak with peppers, onions, and eggs. Or should I say "enjoyed" it twice? Cuz a couple hours later I was hit with the gnarly stomach bug that my 3 kiddies passed around the house last week. Uggghhhhh
Being sick sucks. Being sick as a mom double sucks. Being sick as a mom on the Whole30 triple sucks! It's bad enough when you take care of everyone else while they're sick only to have to continue running the household while you're so sick that you can't go to the bathroom without keeping a fucking bucket on your lap. But then you start thinking "ohhh, man, I'll bet some flat 7 up would help my tummy feel better". Oh yeah, no pop. And let me tell you, it's been a couple months since I had any pop but since getting sick, I'm literally salivating over the thought of pop. "Hmmm... crackers. Crackers might help." Nope. Can't have those, either. "How about rice..." nooooope.
So I layed in bed, totally miserable. Both because I was so sick and because I was thinking of all the stuff I couldn't have. Lol
Well, at least I can say that I stayed compliant another day, uh? Onto Day 23...
