Wow, I can’t believe that tomorrow marks three weeks gone of my Whole30 adventure!! It’s been a cool experience, I have to say. Although I’m a little tired of having to fix all my meals (well, most of them anyway), I really do think I feel better. I know I’m sleeping better, and I can sure tell it when I’m out walking my dog before 5:30 a.m. My energy level has gotten a boost, and I have an sense of accomplishment, even though I’m not totally finished yet, I am confident that I’m going to make it.
My dread of a life without Coke Zero, wine, and cheese was unfounded. Yes, I miss them all, but I’ve never REALLY been tempted to cheat. I want to prove to myself that I can stick to it til the bitter end. I will most likely continue with a “modified” Paleo–I just love a glass of wine with my dinner, and an occasional Coke Zero surely won’t kill me. Hell, 8 or 9 a day didn’t kill me!!! But I know my consumption had gotten totally out of hand, so this has been a real step in the right direction. Honestly, though, I’m not sure I’d have made it without LaCroix sparkling waters. Life without fizz just ain’t worth living!!!
Tonight I learned that a chicken breast dredged in almond flour just doesn’t turn out quite like I wanted it to, but it was still good. Just a little mealy!! Anyway, 10 more days and I will be doing a happy dance and feeling very proud of myself!!
