Better than who I was yesterday....
This morning when I wrote my wrap-up post, I was feeling good. I lost inches, I lost 2% body fat... I lost 1 pound. I didn't really go into the Whole30 to lose weight anyway. Right? Absolutely. But then I read Kristen & Amber's results and I went WHAAAAAT? They each lost, well, more than me. And no offense to Amber, but she cheated...a couple times. This crappy mood settled over me. My husband could tell I was upset. I didn't want to talk about it, because it felt stupid. What am I, 3 years old? "But, but, but....it's not FAIR!!" *insert foot stomp here*
I finally laid it out for him. His response was great. He asked me why I did this. He asked me if I felt better now than I did before doing the Whole30. Yes dear, I do. Thank you for that reminder.
The reality is, I got what I needed out of the Whole30. I feel really good. I lost 2% body fat. I lost 1.5" inches from my waist, and more from other places on my body. I look better, I'm stronger and I am more aware of how foods make me feel.
No more comparisons. I'll keep my joy.....
Food was good today. I had a green smoothie this morning with greek yogurt (man I missed those), leftovers for lunch, plus steak, salad and cauliflower (with butter) for dinner. The addition of some dairy caused me no issues. I don't plan on eating tons of dairy, but I like the flexibility to eat a little.
The next few days are gonna be busy. Tomorrow I'm chaperoning my daughter's field trip, Friday is "Family Game Night" at school & Sunday is my birthday. Feels like a bunch of stuff crammed in a short period of time....oi. Wish me luck! :)
