This Weeks Wednesday Weigh In Plus Whole30

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Let's start with the Whole30 first :) Yesterday was my last official day on the Whole30. The process now is to slowly add in the foods that were banned from the 30 days. This is now the introduction period, much like a baby when you introduce do it 1 at a time, or in this case, 1 group at a time, to see what each food group does to your body. Some can handle say milk, where others have just gotten use to feeling like I've decided that I'm holding off until Friday, when my mom, my daughters, a friend and i are having a movie night and will be having a taco bar. I've decided that day to reintroduce milk products...can we say cheeeeeese :) lol. So yea, technically, i will still be doing the whole30 for a couple more days...but that's ok, this is how i'm pretty much going to be eating most of the time anyways :)

Whole30 end review. To be honest, this was not all that hard...though i did have hard baking 2 cakes for licking was rough!!! a couple of parties, pre-planned events that included going out to eat and some non pre-planned events that included food...then trying to get everyone on board with me, at least for 1 night a week, so that we could still meet up each week...oh and let's not forget life issues that would normally put the stress eating into hyperdrive...then again...that was part of what the whole30 was about...Through this though, i have learned I can make a pretty good hot sausage...i can clarity butter...without processed food in the picture, keeping the sodium daily limits is actually quite easy..and i can more than be satisfied and like real to honest food...oh and one of the biggest lessons is learning what is in our foods...i mean really... soy in our tuna?? sugar in sausage and even in some tomato sauces??

Now...for the news of my weekly weigh in and my final weigh in and measurements from the whole30...drum roll please..come on, this is This week i got rid of 3 lbs... that is a 15 lb total for the total 30 days. I have also gotten rid of 5 inches...wohoo!!!

This Weeks Try It Tuesday

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Ok, I didn't really try anything new this past week. Though I did get my family to try something new to them. They wanted to cook me dinner, but most of the stuff they make was off limits to me while I was doing the whole30. Finally they couldn't stand it any more and asked me to tell them how to do it. Um, you put chicken and vegetables in a pan, pour olive oil over it, season it, cook They all did a good job and I was completely satisfied... especially since I got 2 nights off cooking because of it ;) They also learned they could live without, even if only for a day, all the processed stuff...and enjoy it :)

This Weeks Menu Monday

Monday, September 22, 2014

Well I am officially on day 29 of my whole30...tomorrow is the last which point i am suppose to start the reintroduction of "banned" foods and see how my body does with each. I've decided to still eat whole30 until Friday when I will introduce milk products. We will see how that goes and the following Monday I will introduce non-gluten grains. And so forth. For the most part though, I think I am going to pretty much stick to the Whole30 plan, though give myself a little wiggle room for the dairy and grains. As for the legumes...i really don't miss them...not saying i will never eat them...but probably won't be part of my normal diet either.

So the week looks like this :)

Monday-Date night with mom
Breakfast-Boiled eggs, strawberries and banana's
Lunch-Roast chicken, sweet potatoes, broccoli
Dinner-Roast beef, potatoes and carrots

Breakfast-Home made sausage, roasted potato, cantaloupe
Lunch-Tuna burger, carrots, green beans
Dinner-Cabbage Roll Casserole

Wednesday-Weight in and measurement day
Breakfast-Inside out omelet and grapes
Lunch-leftovers from last night
Dinner-Chicken hot wing burger, roast potatoes, broccoli

Breakfast-Homefries, eggs, strawberries
Lunch-leftovers from last night
Dinner-Stuffed peppers, roasted potatoes, brussel sprouts

Friday-Girls movie night

Lunch-Leftovers from last night but instead of roasted potatoes having mashed potatoes w/milk and butter
Dinner-Taco bar-i'll have a salad with taco meat, cheese, a little sour cream and salsa
