Whole 30 Week 2

Week 2 was definitely better than Week 1. I felt more like myself and had more of an appetite. Jake still got a good bit of food though.

Now at the end of the week, I’m quickly tiring of cooking and doing dishes. Mostly the dishes. I feel like I run the dishwasher every other day. That’s a lot for one person! Luckily Week 3 has at least 3 restaurant nights planned. That’ll give me a much need break.

The greatest benefit I’ve found to Whole 30 is learning to stop when I’m full. Because I’m sitting down to food I’m tired of eating (meat and veggies), I’m not over consuming. I stop when my stomach tells me to, just like I always should. Recognizing that will make a big difference in the future. And it makes for one happy pup. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have him to finish of my eggs and sweet potatoes.
