Whole 30 Program ~ Second Week
Tomorrow I will have done two weeks of the Whole 30 program. I am not going to lie to you and tell you that I didn't slip, because I did. But I didn't fall face first into a plate of doughnuts. So for that I am proud. The first couple of days for me were the hardest... Everything that I craved were on the no-no list and that list is large or at least it seemed to me. So what have I ate? Lots of fruits and vegetables and nuts.. Nuts are my life-saver.
During the day when I am at work, I don't have as much cravings. I pack my food, usually something with meat for lunch and then an egg to eat as snack and fruit and vegetables to eat when I feeling a little hungry and I always have some nuts. Nuts are easy to carry around and eat.
EGGS... I should let my husband become a chicken farmer as I eat eggs every day now. AND I don't even like eggs. I have eaten poached eggs between avocado halves, pretending that I have a sandwich. Eggs with sauteed vegetables, eggs with salsa... EGGS, EGGS, EGGs. I am even eating them boiled.

The million dollar question is... Am I going to stay on this. Yes, I will give it a full 30 days. Although there are a few things that I won't give up like french vanilla creamer in my chai. At home I do use coconut milk and sugar free french vanilla syrup but at work I still use the creamer. I am sure that if a true "whole 30" person reads this they will tell me that I am not feeling better because of the few thing I slip up on. I ate 1 cookie in 2 weeks... I think I am doing good, before it would be a half a dozen per day.
I do still crave bread and pizza and cheese and I am not sure that I will ever give those things up. The only grain I have eaten in 2 weeks is 1 cookie and I have had no cheese.. I lived on cheese before. But I think I am eating healthier and that is the only thing I wanted to do with this program... And oh yeah! Lose WEIGHT.
