Well, I did it! I made it to day 30.
I am very proud of myself.
This past week was rough. Really rough. But I just followed the rules and did the best I could and made it through about 95% compliant. This included eating out twice, and the luncheon after the funeral yesterday. And 0 meal prep.
It’s funny, that once I get past the initial reaction of wanting to eat all of the comfort foods and desserts and just eat what is nutritious, I feel so much better after I eat the meal.
I had so many non scale victories on the Whole30.
AND I had some major scale victories.
I lost 16.2 lbs, and my measurements all went down, some dramatically.
Upper Arm. -0.25 inches
Right Thigh. -2.0 inches
Right Calf. -0.25 inches
Waist. -3.0 inches
Hips. -3.0 inches
Neck. -0.25 inches
Bust. -4 inches
I was really shocked by my measurements. I kinda knew about my weight because I had cheated and weighed myself. Oops.
In other news, yesterday was Carly’s funeral. I was one of the people who delivered a talk/eulogy and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I loved Carly so much, and I love her mom so much I knew I had to be strong for them. And last night we went to the football game as we were honoring Carly there.
I woke up this morning with an emotional hangover. I was supposed to go to my classes at the gym but I didn’t really feel like being around people. I have a headache and I just needed to chill. It’s a beautiful day so hopefully I can get a walk in later today.
I know Carly is in a better place and not suffering but it is still really hard. And I can’t get her mom out of my mind. My head actually winces with pain when I think about her mom. What can I do for her? Any suggestions?
Love you all.
