Heya folks :)
So I completed my Whole3weeks last weekend. I weighed 142 at the end of it so essentially, in three weeks I lost... nothing. Nada. Zero, zip, zilch. But on the plus side I am now able to consistently breathe through my nose (is it wheat? dairy?) and my stupid joints aren't leaving me at a 2-4 pain level on a 1-10 pain scale anymore.
I've lived with that low-level ache for literally years, and now it's gone. Un-freaking-believable. My knee isn't cured by any means. When I move in certain directions it reminds me that it's still here and yes, it's still damaged... but it's much more livable.
I have yet to even max out on my speed/ resistance on the stationary bike, which is huge. We'll see where this leads.
But for the meantime, I'm on Day 2 of my actual Whole30. Food has been average. I didn't have everything shopped for -- Choreboy and I just got back from the beach -- so yesterday breakfast was two hardboiled eggs, 3 ridiculously huge strawberries, and a packet of Wholly Guacamole. This morning I decided I liked yesterday's breakfast so well I nearly repeated it, with the addition of a side of roasted cauliflower.
Okay, I tried to have half an avocado instead of the WG, but the silly thing was underripe/ inedible. Bleah. Thank goodness for keeping at least some convenience foods in stock!
Lunches this week will be sketchy due to, again, my absence from my kitchen this weekend. Yesterday I hit up Chipotle (the carnitas is compliant, as is the mild salsa, guacamole, and lettuce, so that's what I had), and today I may well have an almost exact repeat of breakfast, sans cauliflower.
Dinner is fish, because it was fresh and I didn't have to worry about thawing it, along with said roasted cauliflower and also roasted asparagus.
Dang this is an exciting entry. Well, not so much except for the knees behaving themselves a bit more. Again, that's huge.
I'm out -- 3 day weekend is on the horizon and I have food prep to plan :) Enjoy!
