Day 14 and Week 2 Recap {Whole30}

Holy cow! Week 2, check!

Our eating is definitely better than it ever has been but with such a big change we are really slacking on other things.

We aren’t sleeping that much. I have to cook so much. Not a complaint, just a reality. I either stay up late prepping things for the next day or I prep during the day when I would usually be doing other chores, like laundry. So I stay up late doing laundry.

Then since we’re sleeping less, we’re waking up late which throws the whole day off. Brandon hasn’t gone to workout all week. He usually goes every weekday. I’ve been missing several classes I usually attend because dinner has been taking longer to cook and I don’t make it to class on time.

That being said, I don’t think that the Whole30 is affecting us negatively, we just have to learn how to absorb this new thing added to our schedule and routine.

Dinner:

  • Pot Roast and Veggies
  • Acorn Squash
  • Cashew Cookie Larabar – I know, I know, we’re not supposed to use as dessert but I did. Sue me. 🙂

Prep:

  • Cut 2 bunches of celery into celery sticks

How We Felt:

I think Week 2 was definitely harder than Week 1. I wasn’t as organized and a lot of non-Whole30 things fell through the cracks but I’m assuming this is just what happens when developing a new routine. I definitely want to be more organized for the upcoming week.

  1. You are doing great! I am facing my first social gathering tomorrow night-cards with family and friends. I plan to eat before I go and take some water with me.
