How was your week? Mine was pretty productive! I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this on ALL of my social channels but it’s been a touch toasty.
And by toasty I mean we are under a heat advisory and it feels like 103-107 degrees most afternoons. And you know what? At that temperature, and with our horrendously leaky house, it’s pretty hot inside too.
So it’s been hot here is the moral of that story.
I’m starting Whole30 on Monday with two of my friends. I’m scared, excited, and mostly scared.
I thought I would be exceptionally cool and interview myself on the outset, and then reinterview myself on Day 30.
Well, I’ve heard really great things about it and my friend Iana asked me join in with her and my other friend Meg. I exist on a lot of bread and dairy, so I’m very interested in resetting my mind and exploring food that is actually of great nutritional value.
What do you think you’ll miss the most?
I think cheese and sugar.
What do you think will be the easiest part?
I like veggies and I do like a lot of proteins like chicken, steak, pork, etc. My husband does too so I think cooking dinner will be the easiest since we’ll keep it simple with a protein and a veg.
What are you hoping to gain from this?
I really hope to gain a more thoughtful approach to food. A lot of the times I’m simply putting food into my mouth to stave off hunger versus actually considering the nutritional benefits. I’m also an emotional eater so I’d like to nip that in the bud. I’d also like to gain a lower number on the scale.
So wish me luck because I’m scared.
This looks delicious! Obviously not Whole30 compliant but it still looks yummy!
The boys and I are going to join Justin on a business trip in September to Washington DC! I’ll be alone with them for a lot of the time during the day. If you have any suggestions for easy things to do for a 1.5 and 2.5 year old, share them below!
