You guys!!!! I can’t believe I’ve made it half way to completing my first Whole30! Wohoo!! Well, technically tomorrow is the official half way point, but I’m still celebrating! This week was easier in some ways and harder in others. I truly didn’t have any cravings in Week 2, BUT I stopped being a hermit therefore temptation was stronger.
As previously mentioned, eating out is tough, but possible. My friend’s birthday dinner was my first real test. It was at a winery/restaurant, so the first hour and change was wine tasting time. I stood there with my water in hand explaining to everyone that No, I was/am not pregnant! Just doing Whole30!! For dinner I ordered the Ahi Tuna appetizer without any sauces, and then for my main entree I got a flank steak with broccoli. I did ask the waitress to make sure there was no dairy [i.e. butter], but the one bad part about eating out is that you truly don’t know how the food is prepared.
THEN, my brother’s favorite winery from Napa Valley flew into town to host a private wine tasting at his house. My bro is a big wino, so to say that this is his favorite means it’s really good sh*t! As tempted as I was, I declined the invite and stayed far far away! How’s that for dedication?!!
My only frustration right now is that I haven’t lost any weight! As in ZERO pounds!! I know weighing yourself during the program is a big No No, but I couldn’t help it and stepped on a scale yesterday. Obviously I still have a ways to go and I can certainly step up my work out routines, but to go two whole weeks without ANY grains, alcohol, or dairy [on top of other things] and not lose ONE POUND?!!! How is that possible?!!! I get that there’s more to Whole30 than weightloss, but I’m definitely gonna be annoyed if I don’t loose any L-B’s at the end of this.
At this point, there’s only two more weeks to go so I’m just going to continue on the plan and pray that I reap all the benefits from it.
