We did it!!!!
It wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be, but it was pretty tough to be honest.
We adjusted the way we ate, obviously, and learned that I am in love with sweet potato. I can eat it every single day and be happy.
I feel like I have more energy throughout the day and it doesn’t seem like I’ve been getting hungry as often in between meals. The snacking has really been cut down, and it wasn’t something I was working on. The husband has lost weight and has noticed a difference as well.
We’ve missed bread and chocolate, but aren’t running to the store to stock up, which is a good thing. It seems like both of us have reset the way we look at the foods we use to enjoy and are now looking for more whole options to replace them.
Sugar was my biggest issue, and I was successful. I honestly thought I’d sneak a few pieces of candy in here and there, but I didn’t, and I’m immensely proud of myself for it.
I started an in-home workout plan I’m going to stick with, and we have decided to continue eating as Whole 30 as possible. We will start incorporating some bread and dairy back into our diet, but I don’t see us consuming more than we did before, or even as much as we did before.
I’ve been fine with my coffee black, which is something I never thought I’d be able to achieve. I think I will stick with it too, especially after seeing how much sugar is added to it!
I’d recommend Whole 30 to anyone wanting a lifestyle change and challenge. It’s a bit rough, but it’s doable, and we lived through it. I feel really accomplished that I was able to give up my coffee creamer and sugar for a Whole 30 days!
