Yesterday it was 50 and raining and today it’s supposed to be 70 and sunny. The swing in temperatures made me realize I need to wear my white jeans as often as I can before the snow hits.
Maybe it’s because Sybil’s favorite color is green, but I’ve been more drawn to it over the past year. So when I saw this kelly green sweater on sale, I knew Sybil would be proud of me for trying it.
Today is my one month mark of doing Whole30. It feels like a lie writing that I actually completed another round though. I followed the framework 90% of the time and the other 10% I indulged in ice cream with the kids, a small cup of cashews and my favorite chocolate chips, a chocolate croissant with Lawson, or a slice of pizza.
I generally stuck to Whole30 for breakfast, lunch and dinner and used my 10% for a glass of wine or a sweet treat.
Even though I didn’t follow a strict Whole30 diet, I feel really good about the past month. I lost 5 pounds and feel much better. Less stomach bloat and a happier stomach all around.
Sticking to a 90/10 rule is much more realistic for me. I do like to treat myself occasionally and don’t want to feel like I never get that opportunity.
The first two weeks I didn’t work out. The past two weeks I’ve managed to jog 3x a week. If my main goal was losing weight, I would stick to my 90/10 diet and up the workouts.
