social eating

Whole 30 Week 2

This diet really isn’t so bad. I don’t go to bed hungry and I feel better every day. My husband is officially on the bandwagon too, but he’s more resistant to getting rid of his habitual food items like yogurt, beer, and pasta.

I want to get the tot a little more accustomed to healthy food choices too. I’m trying to figure out how to get zucchini into tasty muffins without using flour, for instance. No luck yet on finding anything online.

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 3.59.35 PMOver the weekend I found myself fitting into jeans I haven’t been able to squeeze into since before my first baby was conceived. And I tried on the shorts I wore two summers ago, post baby #1. They fell to my hips.

The only crappy part of this is social situations. Smelling delicious treats and watching others eat them without partaking is challenging. But I have two small children, so my social interaction is fairly minimal right now.

I managed to make it through a weekend of going to restaurants by bringing my own food or escaping to nurse the baby while others were eating. It was weird, but it worked.

Whole 30 Week 2
Pros:
– Losing weight
– More energy
– New recipes to try
– Feeling accomplished

Cons:
– Challenging in social situations
– Expensive
– Time consuming in the kitchen

I assume once this is over I’ll be able to blog more, which is great, because I have all these healthy new recipes I want to iron out and record. I’m tempted to keep a modified Whole30 diet going for a few more months. With a cheat cupcake day, of course.
