Food, Life

Whole30, 3rd week in.

August 2, 2016

Today is Day 16 of my Whole30! I feel really good. Like really really good. I have no cravings for sugar and I’m really enjoying having so much energy.

I had such a busy weekend that I didn’t have time to go grocery shopping, luckily for me I still had quite a bit left over from last weeks shopping and mum also came over and cooked.It was really sweet as she made stew with no maggi/knorr and generally tried to make whole30 options available for me.

I’ve gotten to a point where I no longer obsess over planning meals and what I’ll eat, I’m so comfortable and attuned to what is allowed and what isn’t that it’s pretty easy for me to whip up something quickly. I really would love to make this a lifestyle. I was looking at pictures of myself from Sunday and I appear leaner hmm.

On Saturday I went over to my friend’s house (her wedding was the next day), we went to a wedding together and I couldn’t eat a thing. We got there really late but it was LIVE! The cocktail bar was flowing and food was just passing by. Man, I just occupied myself with chatting and dancing. I did eat part of a humongous stir-fry I made just before I left home so I wasn’t hungry or anything, just a little miffed not to be partaking in the

My friend’s ceremony the next day was what I was really concerned about… There were a lot of food options I couldn’t even touch. I was actually looking forward to eating amala then remembered gbegiri was made from beans. I had pounded yam and egusi (I had to relax on the MSG rule here, It was a special day for a very special person.) Other than that I ate nothing else the whole day and didn’t even notice as I was so busy running around. It was quite an emotional day and I’m glad I was a little too busy to succumb to all the feelings.IMG_7514

It’s my birthday tomorrow, August 3rd :D. I am turning 27. Last year wasn’t a very happy birthday as you know, it was in the middle of everything falling apart so I’m so thankful to be entering my 27th birthday joyful! I didn’t have anything planned but I believe my friends are taking me to dinner- going somewhere I know will have whole30 complaint food, so that will be lovely. I can’t have any cake or even champagne but I will live and celebrate whole30 style.

Love always,
