Back to clean, 100%.
I am a rule stretcher. Not exactly a rule breaker, but a rule stretcher.
And I love Whole30, but I also love regular salad dressing, and peanuts, and feta cheese and other non-Whole30 compliant grub. And you know where that landed me? In the vicious cycle of cravings, and binge eating, and back on track, and cravings and binge eating, and ice-cream and back on track, and the endless roller coaster that too many of us are too familiar with. And well, it’s time to get back on track, 100% compliant with Whole30, as per their rules.
Yesterday, since it was August 1st, I figured it was the PERFECT day to get back into the hustle. It sucks starting back up over and over again in healthy & clean eating, but I do refuse to QUIT. I’m always going to keep trying and trying and starting over again, if I have to! I’m never giving up my quest for great health, and the best life possible.
black coffee, no creamer
chicken (off a rotisserie chicken), with hot sauce
romaine, cashew, carrot, sesame seed, chicken breast – salad
/w hot sauce (threw the dressing that came w/ the salad away)
tea x 2, and lots of water
Because it was Day 1, I was not hungry. Instead, I was PSYCHED to have had such a healthy & clean day of eating. We walked to the park with the kids after work, and I ran two laps around the whole play area. I certainly need to move my body more, and fitting in exercise at the same time/same place is just not possible each day. But what is possible, is getting moving when the opportunity presents itself! So here we go!
I slept so well (and so did my lil gal, which helps!), and it was awesome to not wake up, not even once during the night. The scale is back down to 160lbs, and I’m psyched to go after my goal of 139lbs.
If the mind can believe it, the body can achieve it.
