My Whole 30 Experience: Week Two

So I’ve officially completed my second week on the Whole 30 diet, 14 whole days! And the biggest thing I’ve learned this week is self control. It can be so unbelievably hard going out to a restaurant and seeing other people getting french fries or bbq wings, not to mention all the food at graduation parties. But I’ve managed to stick to my guns and ignore all the temptations that conveniently find themselves in front of me. All I can say is I WANT PIZZA.

Some things have changed in this past week. I’ve been super tired, probably from the crazy calorie deficit I have going on, but it’s hard finding high-calorie items on this diet. So what I’m filling myself up with ends up being pretty low on the calorie scale. HONESTY MOMENT: I’ve also been a raging bitch this week because I’m always hungry, but I think I finally have that under control 🙂 Coffee is my happy juice.

Week 2 Whole 30 High: getting on the scale Monday morning 🙂

Week 2 Whole 30 Low: going to Quigley’s and seeing all the amazing appetizers that I couldn’t have. And my family getting Chick-Fil-A Shakes.

Today I went grocery shopping with my dad, and both my parents are jumping on the trend. I’ve never seen so many vegetables in my life. Now we just have to eat them all.

Weeks three and four will be an adventure. I begin my summer job during week four, so I have to make sure I’m eating enough to keep me energized while working with the kids at summer camp! I’m passing the halfway mark, and it seems to be getting so much easier. My goals for this upcoming week are to get up and start adding more vigorous workouts to my daily routine, as well as get eight hours of sleep each night. The insomniac in my brain laughs at the latter.

When I did it for two weeks in November, one change that stuck with me is not putting milk and sugar in my coffee. All this past semester, my go-to coffee order was a grande iced coffee, black. This is an adjustment I’ve loved having in my life; it makes everything a little more simple and it’s healthier. I am hoping that by the end of these 30 days, I have new healthy habits to add to my daily routine.

Till next week (when I’ll still be hungry)!
