I am still moving toward the end of May nicely. I am not struggling with my food at all. I am not craving sugar or bread or feeling hungry most of the time. I am also NOT experiencing Tiger Blood and still have arthritis and fatigue symptoms and some digestive issues but they are all a bit better each week. I am contemplating adding a few things in during the month of June and then heading back into a modified 30 days for July if I am able to coordinate that with any possible travel we might be doing.
Can I just say out loud that I am kind of tired of eating meat every meal? I want a night where I can just have a lentil soup or something vegetarian. I am going to test the waters on that and see how it goes soon. I was eating vegetarian at least 2 full days a week before I started this and would like to move back to some options to do that again.
I am also suspicious of the Nightshade vegetables again, too. I would like to do an AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) version of the Whole30 and be very strict with it to see how that affects my body, too.
I am not done with this Whole30 thing by any stretch of the imagination.
I know I don't want to start putting sugar back in regularly. I might need to make some rules for me to keep me on track. I would allow for desserts for very special occasions like birthdays and a holiday celebration but keep it in check the rest of the time. I still need to think through that.
I also want to find some more Paleo versions of things for me to eat to keep gluten at arm's length. I want to stay more with veggies and fruits and not bread and pasta dishes for my meals. I know already that the pasta for lunch would make me super draggy the rest of the day so I want to put better things in throughout the day.
Saturday is my last full day.
I will measure and weigh in on Sunday morning and report back on progress with photos. I don't anticipate a huge weight loss but I know I am not puffy and swollen like before. I know my clothes are fitting more loosely and Dan says he notices a difference in my shape. We will see...
I am hoping to write more regularly through the weekend and into June but this week has been a bear. We have had so many thing we are trying to finish for the end of another school year and we should start slowing down drastically come Monday June 1st.
I will be grateful for some lazier days of summer.
Thanks for following my journey this month and know that I am not done and that I will still be reporting on health and home and family.
Thank you for all of your support!
