Thank goodness it is the weekend. I have made it! It has been a stressful week for sure and while normally I would have just quit any sort of "diet", I am keeping strong on Whole30. I think I can keep this up for a bit longer. I have noticed a lot of changes regarding my other health issues. One thing of note from the book they speak of is regarding those with IBS/IBD as they continue on the program, their gut bacteria begins to "clean itself up" and you will continue to feel like you are having an IBS/IBD episode when in fact your system is beginning to regenerate the good bacteria and remove the bad. It is a part of the whole 'reset' process they speak of and this past week. The first week, I endured no issues and felt great, but during week 2 I have noticed a lot more trips to the bathroom. Let's hope this goes away. It does make me feel miserable. Is this what withdrawal is? I hope it is over soon. *If you would like to read Why I started, go here. For Day 1, go here. For Days 2-4, go here. For Days 5-7, go here. For Days 8-10, go here. Days 11-12, go here.
coloring book afterward, and it was time to start my day.
Meal 37-Breakfast. Again, I am loving this mix of banana, almond butter and coconut flakes. Another dupe but it is super filling and really easy to make. It looks to be a busy day around the house so a filling and easy breakfast was a sure-in this morning.
Meal 40- Breakfast. Poached eggs over avocado slices. Bacon. Sausage. Wilted spinach and hasbrowns. It was a great meal. I did ask the server about the bacon and sausage and she did say it came from a local farm (one i know to use only grass-fed methods) which does not use sugar in the processing. Happiness!! It has been difficult being without bacon. Side of local black coffee and a glass of water.
chicken sausage sliced and sweet potato pureed and it was divine.
