I love that I was able to blog three times about it. Yup. That's my life. And I'm alright with it!
Anyway- one of the goals of Whole30 is to have many non-scale victories! Which I love because what's the point of lbs anyway? I mean really? Why does it matter how much you weigh if you feel good, have energy, and love life?!
So, without further ado, here is a list of just some of the things we have noticed since we completed 30 days of Whole30.
- dry scalp- gone
- headaches- gone
- back pain- gone
- kidney stones- none
- energy levels- completely out of control amazing! It's incredible how we all felt during this time. I drank coffee because I liked it not because I had to have it.
- patience- here's a big one. I'm not the most patient person out there but I could see a significant different in how calm I was during this month. My children noticed too ;)
- attention levels in my kids- Greta has show great changes during her reduced sugar portion of the Whole30 lifestyle. I ask her to do things and guess what? She actually does them. It's incredible! Plus I feel like she argues with me less.
- sleep- we both wake up feeling totally refreshed and ready to go for the day!
This past weekend we allowed ourselves to eat a little less clean but still tried to pay attention to how we felt after everything we ate. I have to tell you- we are sold out for clean eating! There is no way around it. I had a beer Saturday night with our dinner and it didn't even taste that good. It's been the only drink I've had since December and I don't miss alcohol at all! It's like I finally figured out how good I feel sober compared to how I feel after a drink or two and it just isn't worth it anymore!
Also, we both tried a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup at the movies on Saturday night and it tasted horrible. :( I used to really like those but I think after a month on just good foods my taste buds have changed and I no longer crave bad sugar.
I'll try to up date this with some of our favorite foods that we've made but follow me on instagram @emilyhansen06 for more regular updates plus pictures of my babes!
