Here are the photos for Days 15 - 21 on my Whole30 journey. I was super strong for 34 days and eating whole foods. I even did pretty well for most of last week after the Undie Run on Saturday. I ate some goat cheese and summer sausage at the Super Bowl party, but other than that I was pretty good. Until Yesterday. I saw a bag of Sweetart Jelly Beans in the store when I went to get Ginger Ale for a sicky. Sweetart Jelly Beans are my Springtime fave. They only come out once a year at Easter time. So I caved. I don't even want to tell you how many I ate. Needless to say I'm trying to do damage control today. Green tea. Salads. Beets. Grapefruit. Healthy fats. Whole foods! Must eat the Whole Foods to make up for a huge mistake!!! I'm not kidding. I ate the whole bag. Not at one sitting mind you. I ate half the bag while watching a movie with the sickie. Then I contemplated throwing the rest of the bag away. But I put it up in my cabinet. Then after the kids went to bed, I ate the other half. So yesterday, I ate The whole. flippin'. bag. Oh well. That's life and I have to move on. I don't plan to buy any more this year. I was actually hoping that I would catch my daughter's stomach virus and puke up the jelly beans just so that I would hate them for a really long time. That's a healthy attitude, right? This whole lifestyle change is a process. We have to re-train ourselves. We all have to forgive ourselves and move on. Right now my tea pot is whistling at me to go make more green tea.
Just remember: One mistake doesn't break your whole lifestyle change. Get over it and move on!
So, here are the photos from Days 15 - 21 of my Whole30 Journey. . . . .when I ACTUALLY ate right for 34 days.
