Day 20

So, I'm on Day 20 of the Whole30. 2/3 of the way there. I honestly can't believe I've made it this far.

So, how is it? I think I can say that my cravings have subsided. I've gotten used to preparing my meals ahead of time, of making my lunches, of frequent trips to the grocery store. I'm paying more money for groceries (veggies and more meat), but no wine so that probably evens out.

I still think about cookies, a lot. Like every day. I've frequently thought "as soon as this is over, I'm going to eat an entire bag of Trader Joe's cookies." I've honestly thought that. And I might just do that. And I might eat nothing but pizza.

According to the Whole30 book, from days 16-26 (or so) you are supposed to feel like "tiger blood". I don't feel that. I don't really feel any different, except smug, maybe.

cupcakes, I will see you soon!
I have been doing one thing that is not "in the spirit of" Whole30. I've been eating 2 ingredient egg/banana "pancakes" every morning since about day 9, because I just cannot eat eggs every day as eggs. The bananas kind of mask the egg-ness. I love eggs, don't get my wrong. I love runny eggs with toast, or scrambled eggs with cheese...

Fake pancakes are not allowed because faking any kind of treat is a no-no. You must not even want to eat those delicious things! Your body must be above it! But, in that way, my desire/plan to eat an entire bag of cookies on day 31 is probably not in the spirit of the Whole30 either.

just a random wall.
And what after all this? Well, I think I will continue aspects of it in a minor way. I could do fewer grains and more veggies. I could do less sugar. I don't actually eat that much dairy as is, actually. So, we'll see - I'm still thinking about it. I've still got ten days!
