Day 30–Gulp!!


Well, here it is, my last day of my 3rd Whole 30.  Okay, I’m going to be honest here, I caved over the weekend.  I was in Mobile visiting my dad, and just couldn’t resist some fried crab claws, scallops, and shrimp.  It was DIVINE!!!  So, I’m not going to beat myself up or start over, I’m just going to keep on keeping on and try to stay as close to the straight and narrow as I can.  Still going to try to avoid Coke Zero, haven’t caved on that one yet.  I know this weekend will be tough, and I’m not going to lie and say that I won’t be drinking, because I will.  I’m going down to the Gulf Coast with two dear friends that I don’t get to see nearly often enough, and there will most definitely be a throw down!!  However, I will do all I can to try to eat as close as possible to the Whole 30/Paleo plan.  Oh, and BTW, I’m down 12 lbs.  A decent start, anyway.

Side note–at the hotel in Mobile there was a “Toddlers and Tiaras” type pageant going on. OMG!!  Oddly fascinating but at the same time disheartening.  I just wonder what type of message is getting through to those little girls with their false eyelashes, huge hair (the higher the hair, the closer to God), fake tans, and pushy parents.  I would venture to say that the biggest majority of the parents are doing this for themselves and not the kids. Kinda sad if you ask me.  But then, who asked me?

So, onward ho!!  Wish me luck!!
