Week Two — Whole 30

Week Two was hard! It even got a little Emotional. I will address this in an upcoming post, but today I have a few bullet points to sum up the past week.

– I had iced coffee with cream twice during this past week. One was a tall, and one was a Grande.

– I love lean ground turkey. There are so many different options.

– Mrs. Dash saltfree seasoning is the best! A little goes a long way to enhance any meal.

– I miss drinking my nightly glass of skim milk.

– I am eating way more fruit than I am veggies.

– I am not drinking enough water. I don’t feel thirsty so it’s not an automatic habit for me to drink water. This needs to change.

– I still feel like I am sleeping better than I have in a while.

– I am trying to re-kindle my love for hot tea.

– I haven’t had ice cream in two weeks! HUGE accomplishment.

– I haven’t had a sweet pumpkin treat all month either. A huge accomplishment. Have you seen all the treats in the grocery stores? My heart weeps.

– BUT! I am searching to find good Paleo Pumpkin treat recipes. Link me if you have any to share!

– In hopes of doing some baking that is Whole30 friendly I bought coconut sugar, flour, and oil!

– Navigating restaurants can be tough, but it’s do-able.

– Today will be the biggest challenge yet. I am spending the whole day with Alex and his family. They eat out a lot and don’t keep many unprocessed options in their home.

– It’s all about planning and preparation. Not just today, but each and every day.

Weigh in results:

Monday, October 1st: 220.2
Monday, October 8th: 216.4
Monday, October 15th: 215.0

Is there anything you would like to share – food, weight, life, etc? 

Have a happy and  healthy Monday, my friends!

      Thanks, friend! Right after I drafted this up last night I remembered that Ann posted a pumpkin recipe. I am going to leave no pumpkin un-turned this week. 🙂

    I’m pretty positive that you can find some great pumpkin treat recipes on Pinterest. What can’t you find on Pinterest, really? In keeping with renewing your love of tea – there are some amazing pumpkin spice teas out there – that might solve two of your goals in one cup!!
    It sounds like you’re doing really well. A couple of slipups are to be expected, but really, you are doing fantastic. Keep it up!!

    My pre-Whole30 diet included more fruits than vegetables as you have mentioned. During the first 30 days, I limited mine to 2/day. After that I decided I had a sugar issue, so I eliminated all fruits for a while (so far, 15 days). I’m really glad I did, because now I don’t have any sweet cravings at all. I used to have a desire for more and more whenever I had a sweet treat even if it was just fruit. It just never seemed to satisfy. :-/

    I’ll share the recipes that some of my blogging friends have tried or created…
    Grain and Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie, and it has been highly recommended as a great Whole30 alternative:

    Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Lattes:

    Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl:

      Thanks for all the info!

      Even though I am eating a lot of fruit, I don’t have the sugar/chocolate cravings like I used to! I think I am moving in the right direction! Thanks again!
