Day 11 {Whole30}

Ok, I’ve got another confession to make. I’ve been weighing myself daily.

I know, I know. It’s a big no no.

I’m totally going to throw Kraft under the bus on this one. He has always weighed himself daily. He likes metrics. So on Day 1 I told him not to weigh himself and he did it anyway. (“Just like a man!” for all those Anne of Green Gables lovers out there.) And since he did it, I did it. #peerpressure #justsayno

You know what is so interesting? My weight has been totally stable. Before the Whole30 when I would weigh myself throughout the week (always in the morning before eating), my weight would fluctuate about 7 pounds. But since starting the Whole30, my weight is exactly the most low number of that 7 pound range everyday. It’s kind of amazing. It seems like my body is finally experiencing stability instead of my capricious treat-indulging throughout the week. I can only conclude that this is good.

But I will admit that 11 days in, I’m getting discouraged that I haven’t lost weight. So I’ll have to agree with them and say that you really, really shouldn’t weigh yourself. The last thing you need while doing a Whole30 is discouragement. Especially discouragement that is in your power to avoid. Just don’t step up on the scale.

I’m going to stop. I won’t weigh myself tomorrow or the rest of the Whole30, cross my heart. As they say, I don’t want to be a slave to that hunk of plastic. You don’t own me, scale. *sassy snap*

  • 1/2 an Apple with Almond Butter

Dinner:

  • Baked Chicken Breast with Chimichurri Sauce – This sauce is so amazing. I hate pesto so I was worried it was going to taste like pesto. It doesn’t. It tastes like awesome. And you can put it on anything: beef, fish, chicken. It makes everything perfect. Before you cook the meat you douse it with this stuff, then after you take it out of oven, you drizzle some more on. Bam. Ship it.
  • 1/2 and Avocado
  • Spinach

Prep: I actually haven’t prepped for the week which is making each day pretty hard but I did make a few things today to get a head start on tomorrow.

How We Felt:

👍 for the most part. A little 😴.
