Recipe of the week: Meatloaf #Whole30Edition #Week4

whole30-week4

So I am on Day 28 of my Whole 30 journey! I can honestly say that I feel truly great! I really had a lot thoughts where I didn’t love how I looked and felt. I knew if I wanted to improve something that I needed to work hard for it. With being on Whole 30, I have consistently been working out about 6 days a week. Like I said I have been doing weekly weigh in. Technically your not suppose to weigh yourself till the end. I knew I couldn’t resist so I just made sure to monitor it weekly.

Update 1 #Day7 ( November 1st, 2015)- Lost 3.5 Lbs

Update 2 #Day14 ( November 8th, 2015)- Lost 2.5 Lbs

Update 3 #Day 21 ( November 15,2015) – Lost 2.5 lbs

Update 4 #Day 28 ( November 22,2015)- 1 lbs

I will do one final update after I wrap up on Day 30, to talk about my experience. Thank you guys for following along!

Recipe of the week: Chia Pudding #Whole30 Week 3

  ITS BEEN 3 WEEKS ON WHOLE 30 & here is my update! Well you know how they say it takes 21 day to make a habit, well I truly believe it is the truth. I want  say even after my Whole 30 period is over, I could still see myself keeping up and doing Whole 30. I have created better eating habits during the last 3 weeks, that I truly feel like I can integrate into my lifestyle. I have experienced more energy and a honestly a surge in a mental desire in wanting to be active to compliment my new eating habits. Whole 30 is sustainable and realistic in my opinion in upkeeping.
