In the past month I have only lost 5 more pounds, and even those have really been back and forth the whole month. I keep fluctuating the same 2-3 pounds every week.
I have also been allowing myself to eat non whole30 foods a lot more often than I should.
I have been having mad carb cravings.
SO I decided last night that I was going to do another full 30 day round of NO grains, legumes, dairy, or sugar. I am gonna follow Whole30 EVERYDAY for 30 days. Not just most of the time like I am now because slowly my 80-90 percent is becoming 60-70 and that is a slippery slope.
So in preparation, yesterday I had oatmeal, a sandwich with cheese, 3 diet cokes, potato chips with ranch dip, and pizza.
GET IT OUT OF THE WAY ONE LAST TIME.
So today I planned out my weeks menu and made a 30 day count down sheet for my fridge.
I went to the grocery store and got all the items I would need for this weeks meals.
My plan for week one
Day 1: Chicken sausage, spinach, eggs
Day 2: Sweet potato bun with bacon and eggs
Day 3: Green Smoothie (almond milk, banana, spinach)
Day 4: Spinach eggs with bacon
Day 5: Sausage egg bake
Day 6: Green Smoothie
Day 7: Sweet potato bun with bacon and eggs
Day 8: Spinach eggs with bacon
Day 1: Steak, broccoli, mashed potatoes
Day 2: Root veggie chili
Day 3: Chicken and mushrooms with snap peas
Day 4: Root veggie chili
Day 5: Chicken and mushrooms with raisins in an acorn squash
Day 6: Chicken and snap peas
Day 7: Acorn squash stuffed chili
Day 8: Kale Soup
Day 1: Antelope roast with parsnips and carrots
Day 2: Chicken sausages with cabbage
Day 3: Chicken and Kale Soup
Day 4: Sausage Egg Bake
Day 5: Steak and spinach with mashed potatoes
Day 6: Leftover Soup
Day 7: Almond crusted catfish with roasted broccoli
Day 8: Hamburger patties with home fries
Whole30 Chipotle Chili
1 pound ground beef
chipotle peppers in adobo (this brand is compliant some have sugar so read the label)
Crushed fire roasted tomatoes
2 Alarm Chili Kit
OMIT THE MASA IN THAT KIT
Throw this pouch in the trash as it is not Whole30 approved.
Serving this over oven roasted sweet potatoes, parsnips, and butternut squash.
I also roasted chicken breasts and sautéed some snap peas and mushrooms.
Having my lunch already portioned out and in containers to take to work makes staying on track so easy. I highly recommend anybody trying to watch what they eat spend an all day meal prep day on Sunday even if its just for your lunches.
I started a Whole30 round 2 in July but quickly decided to quit because of several trips I went on and I decided to just eat whatever. This time I am going to stick with my round and make it the 30 full days. I hope this will help me get out of this back and forth weight and down into the next 10 pounds off.
From September so far 55 pounds down!
From my highest ever weight in 2012 75 pounds down!
I am only 12 pounds away from my first major goal and my Kendra Scott Rayne necklace!
TIME TO PUSH FORWARD AND DO THIS
I am still hitting the gym - getting stronger everyday. (I just added another step higher on my box jumps friday!)
I just need to really focus on keeping my eating consistently clean which I know I can do if I focus and make it a priority.
