Only 2 Days Left

It’s day 28. Which means I only have 2 days left of this Whole 30. What!!!! Where the heck has the time gone? I can’t believe that in 2 short days I will have done 30 days of Whole 30.
Today, I had a huge success. Actually 2 successes. First, was at breakfast. My husband flew in this morning from overseas. So, he of course was starving. We headed over to a restaurant for some breakfast. After looking over the menu I decided on a fresh fruit plate, which consisted of strawberries, pineapple, banana, and grapes, and a side of turkey sausage. There were eggs and on letters of course on the menu but not knowing how they were cooked or with what I decided to go with the fruit and sausage. And, first have to tell you I loved this turkey breakfast sausage. So yeah, I’ll be trying other brands because the stuff I have here at the house still not crazy about. And, second I didn’t finish all of the fruit because well there was a ton of it, and I didn’t need to eat all of it and also I was able to stop when I felt like I was getting full. I usually never do that, so this was a great thing. Whole 30 has definitely taught me a lot about what I eat, why I eat, and how food makes me feel. So breakfast this morning was a major success.
The second success came this afternoon. The husband and I went grocery shopping to pick up food for our New Years Day Party and after getting home he decided he was going to eat a Swiss chocolate bar he had brought home for overseas. Let’s just say that there is a lot of Swiss chocolate in my house right now. So as he was eating it I told him he could eat all he wanted but just not in front of me. He promptly left the room and ate his chocolate. I was impressed with myself in that I didn’t even really want it, I wasn’t craving it at all, of course as I’m writing about this I’m thinking about chocolate but it’ll pass. So, this girl who was a total sugar/junk food junkie was able to not care that there was an open chocolate bar in the vicinity or that there is tons of chocolate sitting in the house. I’m not sure if it’s my willpower that has gotten better or after 28 days of Whole 30 sugar doesn’t have the hold it used to have on me. Either way it was a SUCCESS!!!
We finished the night off with dinner at Ruby Tuesdays where I had salad bar. Just lots of veggies, lettuce, broccoli, cucumber, squash, and tomato. I followed that up with a plain turkey burger and roasted spaghetti squash. I didn’t even term, ok well not too much anyway for one of my husband’s French fries. It actually wasn’t even something that I really wanted.
Whole 30 has definitely changed my outlook on food. And, after this challenge is over I’ll be reflecting on it all and organizing all of my thoughts and feelings on it in a more coherent manner than the ramblings you’ve been getting over the past 28 days. But, hey thanks for sticking with me through this journey and 2 days left.
