Whole30 Week 3 Recap

23 Mar

I can’t believe today is Day 20! 10 more days of Whole30 to go. I’ve been a little frustrated because I haven’t really been seeing the results I was hoping for in terms of getting leaner…but I will know the final results at the end of Whole30 once I take my bodyfat percentage.

Regardless, it’s felt good to have control over what I eat, and not eat unnecessary junk. Sure, it was hard at times when my dad and siblings were eating buffalo wings, cookies, etc. but I got through it! Having that mental fortitude felt great. Honestly, I think I am going to continue it for another 30 days, after 1-2 days of more relaxed eating. All I have wanted this whole time is a bowl of cereal! πŸ™‚

Here are this week’s meals. I am going to try to eat more for the next 10 days because apparently I haven’t been eating enough (according to the Whole30 forum). We’ll see what happens!

Day 14

Meal 1: 2 chicken sausage, 1/4 avocado

Meal 2: Tuna with mixed greens and 1/4 avocado, olive oil and balsamic vinegar

Meal 3: apple with almond butter

Meal 4: chicken with sweet potato and veggie stew

Meal 5: cashews

Day 15

Meal 1: 2 chicken sausage, 1/4 avocado

Meal 2: tuna, salad, 1/4 avocado

Meal 3: almond butter with apple

Meal 4 pre-workout: cashews

Meal 5: leftover chicken and sweet potato soup

Meal 6: 2 eggs, half larabar

Day 16

Meal 1: 2 eggs, salsa, 1/4 avocado

Meal 2: sweet potato and leek soup with 1 chicken sausage

Meal 3: apple and almond butter

Meal 4: chicken, crushed tomatoes, sauce, and mixed greens…cashews

Day 17

Meal 1: 1 egg

Meal 2: 3 eggs and mixed green salad

Meal 3: apple and almond butter

Meal 4: taco salad, grapes

Day 18

Meal 1: 2 eggs, apple and almond butter

Meal 2: leftover taco salad

Meal 3: grilled salmon salad from Ruby Tuesday’s

Meal 4 (more like a snack): banana

Day 19

Meal 1: 2 eggs, 1/4 avocado, banana and almond butter

Meal 2: taco salad leftovers

Meal 3 pre-workout: 1 egg, larabar

Meal 4: chicken, sauce, mixed greens…cashews

Day 20 (today so far)

Meal 1: 2 eggs, 1 chicken sausage

Meal 2: leftover chicken, sauce, and mixed greens

Meal 3 pre-workout: banana, almond butter, handful of cashews, 1 chicken sausage

 

So this week, as I’m typing, I realize I ate fruit and almond butter most days. A lot of people in the Whole30 forums said this may be why I’m not seeing much change, and to eat more protein and veggies. I am going to try this but I just do not like most veggies! I force myself to eat most of them, I just don’t find any vegetable taste that appealing. It’s certainly nothing I’d ever crave like I do a good banana or apple. Guess I need to change this mentality for the next 30 days!

What’s your favorite way to eat vegetables?
