So the end of the whole 30 came and went and then the weekend came, and it wasn’t pretty.
I ate some sweet things, I ate some not so sweet things, I ate some whole30 things and some not whole30 things. What I definitely learnt from this experience is I feel like crap when I’m not eating properly.
Before the whole30 I didn’t really realise how badly I felt, I spent Saturday feeling horrendous, tired, irritable, headachy nauseous and weak. I’m serious, it was shockingly bad, the stomach ache was enough on it’s own without the really awful lethargy and the change in my mood.
To say that it put me firmly back in my place is an understatement, I’ve seen how my body runs on good fuel and now I feel how I run on shitty fuel. It’s painful, it’s depressing and it’s awful.
So from Sunday on I’m back to clean. I have a social engagement on Friday which I’m looking forward to but I’m going to suffer afterwards, but I won’t let it derail the food awesomeness.
So I’m loving whole30 and I miss it already, I responded to a twitter shout out to start again on August 5th so I’m going to be back with it as soon as possible. Hopefully the next 15 lbs will disappear as easily as the first did! I doubt that somehow but steady, clean eating = steady weight loss and thats what I want. Feel free to join us!

Speaking of Twitter, Laura tweeted me in response to my body positive fail post the other day and I loved what I read, intelligent and very close to the knuckle. Body love is not an obligation. I recommend it for those struggling with the concept, and those who don’t.
How did your weekend go?
