Well, I finished my Whole 30 challenge. It wasn't too bad. The main thing I learned is that dairy is my downfall! I eat far too much dairy. So now that I'm back on a "normal" primal diet, I'm going to make sure I eat way less of it.

So total- I lost 10.5 pounds. That's a lot of weight loss for 30 days!
I also went down at least a pant size- maybe two. I haven't been shopping yet- so I'm not sure.

As a reminder- here is a picture of me from last March (the week before I went primal and 65 pounds heavier).

Now here is a picture of me from right before my "Whole 30" challenge.


Here I am in the exact same clothes after my "Whole 30" challenge. Now I have to wear a belt!

Whole 30 Food Journal- Days 24-29

Again- I let my recordings slip. I've definitely been sticking to the plan- except for today- Valentine's Day.

I couldn't help myself and indulged in a sugar cookie. I know- bad me!

But I did go to lunch with my husband to IHOP (where we had our first date almost 9 years ago!) and enjoyed a T-bone steak and 3 eggs over easy. SUPER filling and super yummy.

I guess my 30 days are up on Wednesday. I'm not going to post any more food journals- but on Wednesday I will post my results after I weigh myself.

I'm pretty excited to see how this past 30 days has effected me!

Whole 30 Food Journal- Days 16-23

I am so so bad! I keep forgetting to put up my food for the day!

I've been strictly staying on the Whole 30 (even when surrounded by sopapillas- my favorite).

Days 16-21 - Don't remember! But I definitely stuck to it- and I'm almost to the end! I think the only thing I've really missed is heavy cream in my herbal tea. I tried coconut milk- but it's just not the same.

Day 22
Breakfast: skipped

Lunch: 2 eggs

Snacks: a fresh pineapple/coconut milk/banana smoothie. Definitely higher on the carb side- but it was SOOOO yummy.

Supper: Taco salad (seasoned ground beef, spring greens, banana peppers, hot sauce, and sauteed onions)

Day 23

Breakfast: skipped- was running late for class

Lunch: 2 eggs (I think I have 2 eggs for lunch almost every day!)

Snack: a handful of prunes, some freshly cut pineapple, a few pork rinds

Supper: Primal BBQ chicken (recipe from Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint cookbook) with a side of asparagus (w/olive oil and a squeeze of lemon).

Whole 30 Food Journal- Day 15

Studying for all of my exams has made it really difficult for me to remember what I have been eating!

Breakfast: skipped

Lunch: 2 eggs

Supper: skipped

I was so busy studying I only really ate snacks. I had some raisins, a coconut milk and frozen mango smoothie, and a few pork rinds throughout the evening.
