Whole30 Wrap-Up

     While this is a little delayed, my Whole30 is over! It went well, and I am still sticking to it about 75% of the time, give or a take. For instance, tonight for dinner I had sausage, asparagus, sweet potato chips and eggs. It was delicious and "whole30 approved". However, I have definitely indulged in some good stuff, like good scout cookies - LOTS of girl scout cookies, since it has been over :)

     In conclusion to this Whole30, I did enjoy it, noticed some small changes in energy and sleeping. I felt better overall, but definitely still had some cravings. Unfortunately my headaches never completely went away, so I am still planning on going to the doctor at the end of this month and maybe a specialist in the next couple of months to try and figure out what the deal is. Body wise, I lost about 7 lbs and 3 inches in my waist. Not too shabby!

    I would recommend trying this program, it gave me a whole new insight on what I eat and made me much more aware of everything I was putting into my body. It really is true that you don't realize how much unnecessary junk you fill your body with until you are forced to really pay attention. Now, when I go to the store I fill my cart up with more fruits, good meats, and veggies over sugary things and carbs.

     On another note, it is Spring Break time, meaning I have an entire week to sit and do a lot of nothing. It could not have come fast enough. I plan on working on a lot of grad school stuff and getting a head start, but I won't be surprised if I only accomplish about half of my list. So far I have enjoyed a day at the park, brunch with Dave and his brother, a little shopping, and meeting the most precious little pup in the world. He is currently in a foster home and up for adoption. I saw him online and just knew I had to meet him. Luckily, he was at an adoption event at a pet store near by so we went and saw him. He was even more loveable in person. He is my dream dog, so it must be a sign! I have always wanted a chocolate lab, but don't want to go to a breeder for one. I am a firm believer in rescuing, especially since Maddie is a rescue. Would you just look at this face? How could you ever say no to it?!

I wasn't choking him out, he was busy smelling and wouldn't look up :)

Love at first sight.
