30 days and I'm thin in the face..

Thursday, October 30, 2014

I made it.. well I'm calling it by about 8 hours too early, but I doubt I will slip up.
This whole thing has been amazing..
Its been really hard, but really amazing.
I feel more proud in what I have accomplished in these past 30 days than I did when I finally hit 100lbs down back in February after a 3 year struggle.

I've always struggled with binging.
For the first time in my life I didn't cave.
This is the longest I've gone without cheating myself.
No fast food
No soda
NO CHEEEEEESE (Come on this, Wisconsin girl is dying..)
No wine
No grains
No beans
No dairy
No sugar of any kind other than fruit

Wow.. I really didn't think I had it in me.. and judging by a lot of the praise I'm getting from the people in my life I don't think they thought I had it in me either.

For some reason we all get this idea in our heads that eating a certain way will be impossible.
Nothing is impossible.

I pulled some pictures from my facebook posts so I can show you what my food basically looked like for the past 30 days.

My first meal.. I didn't think I'd ever like black coffee.. better than nothing!

Steak and spaghetti squash.

Avocado, shrimp, chicken sausage and sliced tomatoes.

Ordered out at work for Friday lunch!! Not too scary being compliant while dining out.

Shredded sweet potatoes with prosciutto egg cups.. My all time fave!

I made compliant mayo!! 2nd try!!

All my snacks so I could still enjoy a bridal shower without the italian food!

The only thing I could enjoy at the shower..

My steak for the Walking Dead premiere.. Rick looks pretty pleased.

Almond meal breaded chicken breast with prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

Eggs and green juice.. juice is not complaint as they say smoothies are bad for psychological reasons, but its spinach, pineapple, banana, water and flax seed. My juicing is the only rule I broke on the plan.

Another Friday lunch! Steak and eggs were our dining out go to for the hubs and I.

Sweet potato "bun", burger patty, sweet potato fries, avocado and pineapple.. another fave!

Big flipping steak with roasted cauliflower.. I can eat my weight in roasted cauliflower.

Working lunch.. This one was a fail actually.. my first entree had black beans, corn and tortilla strips hiding on the bottom because they didn't listen to my request and used the wrong kind of salsa instead of pico de gallo. This is the one that had to box up for me and take back with me Shrimp salad with pico, avocado, black olives, and cactus! It was good, but I thought they messed with it since I complained about the first one.. so I threw it away well before I was full. Holy novel about a salad.

Almond meal breaded chicken tenders with sweet potato fries! Major hit in our house!

What I got when I almost caved. I was out and about with no supervision and I wanted a starbucks mocha so bad.. I went shopping and it was so hard to stay true to myself and what I really wanted.
I won.

Sick, but complaint.

Chicken soup for my sickness and part of my kid's costume.

And the biggest brag of all time..
This is WHERE I WORK!!
We are famous for our buns and I need to smell, see, touch this stuff all the time!

I cannot wait to log my weigh in tomorrow. It really is prefect that I get to see my whole30 end weight on the same day that I would always log on Sparkpeople.. I've been sneaking peeks and its pretty awesome!!

I wanted to write more, but I'm still at work and those pictures took a long time.
Maybe more tomorrow?!?

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon A W30 is an amazing adventure for anyone that undertakes it, BUT seeing that last picture and realizing you did it while smelling and seeing fresh baked bread every day, left me in awe of your willpower. emoticon emoticon

    You are so amazing!! Congrats!

    And "Rick looked pretty pleased" made me LOL. emoticon

    The book FINALLY came in at the library. I'll pick it up on Saturday!

    Now I want to know (so yes, please; more): What from this diet is worth keeping? What was cruel and unusual? How did you and your husband find the time to make all that stuff when you work, go to school, and have a job? What was it like to do it with him? Do you feel closer?
