Well, this is it, I’m ready to start my 2nd Whole 30 tomorrow. I love Whole 30, seriously L-O-V-E it! I have done practically every weight loss program there is and for the first time, I feel that I’m just feeding my body good foods and not completely obsessed about how many bites I eat, consuming my every thought!
I have had a 2 week break since my last Whole 30, but really, I’ve stuck with in for those two weeks as well because I just really didn’t want anything else! I had a “date” with my husband last Friday and thought I’d just eat whatever I wanted at the restaurant. But by golly, what I wanted was the good food I’d been eating! I did have a glass of red wine on 3 occasions in those 2 weeks, I had a cookie on our date, and tonight I had a slice of banana bread.
But now, I’m ready to go! I made a fresh batch of Ghee today, I have homemade beef and chicken bone broth in the freezer. And I have a meal plan for my entire month. This is the key for me with meal planning – it does take a while to put together, but it is TOTALLY worth the time. Not only does it make it so I have lots of meal ideas laid out, but it also helps me budget, which is one of my goals for this time through. I didn’t worry about budget last time, just focusing on eating well, but lots of expenses hit the fan this month & it’s what my husband & I call a “buckle down” month this month!
My routine on Whole 30 has become, checking my meal plan for the next day before I go to bed at night. I’m all set for tomorrow! For breakfast, I’m having Eggs Benedict with Brussel Sprouts. For lunch, Taco salad. For dinner, Mexican Chicken Stir Fry. Lunch will be a little more work than I typically like, but I’ll live.
So here’s to any 30! Whole 30, I love you!!
