Whole30 – Day 3

I LOST 3 POUNDS! I normally only weigh my self once a week when trying to lose weight but I just couldn’t help it, and I am glad I did because I needed a boost of encouragement to keep my morale up. I do feel like it is the kind of weight that will come back on as soon as I start eating grains again, but hopefully after a whole month of this healthy eating not only will I lose much more than 3 lbs, but hopefully the habits will be so ingrained that I don’t care as much about bread or cheese. That is the whole plan anyway right, to break the sugar cycle, the sugar cravings, and enjoy the flavor of real natural, non-artificial foods.  

The husband I made it to the gym again to use the treadmills, however when we got there, they were all full so we did the stationary bikes for 20 minutes instead. That is not a long workout but much better than nothing and it got us sweating and breathing hard.

 Tonight was the first time I ate out since starting. I know we are supposed to avoid eating out on the program, but my kids needed some food they would like and I knew this restaurant had a salmon dish I could order that would qualify. And I did have the grilled salmon salad and it was tasty and filling. The only downfall was sitting next to my husband who had the chicken parmesan that looked so delicious, my mouth was watering. BUT I did not even have a bite. I did not have the sesame crackers that came on side of salad and I only used half my the vinaigrette dressing knowing that it of course had some sugar in it. I did good.  

I have to go back to work tomorrow, which will be a new test. I have my lunch ready and will have breakfast at home so I will only have to avoid snacking on wrong items but I have carrots, apples and almonds to take in case I get hungry in between. Wish me luck.
