21dsd week three


Favorite recipe: Chicken strips – we couldn’t stop eating them!

Least favorite recipe: Buffalo chicken egg muffins – again, only because I didn’t get around to making them.

Naps taken: 0!

Favorite snack: Green apple + coconut butter + almond butter.

Food I forgot I loved: Guacamole – this guacamole.

Biggest temptation: A bowl full of M&Ms during our football watching gathering (GO HAWKS!). They were staring at me all afternoon.

Steps: 38,513

Prepped for week three: Beef bone broth and prosciutto & greens egg bake.


Week two was MUCH better than week one. I wouldn’t say that I had an abundance of energy but I was much less tired considering the early a.m. feedings. Good new though *KNOCK ON WOOD* I think we’re turning the corner on sleep! I’m not going to say much because I don’t want to jinx it. Anyways, my skin is so much clearer (and glow-ey) and I’ve definitely lost some bloat and possibly some weight which wasn’t really a goal of mine. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight due to breastfeeding already. The cravings for something sweet in the evenings are still there but I think it’s more out of habit than anything and easily overcome with a few apple slices. Maybe that will never go away? If so, I can live with that.

I did have a couple little slips which are SO SO minor that I feel silly even writing about. 1. Made a giant batch of Texas red chili (with beer in it!) and had to have a bowl that night. 2. Ate out Sunday Morning and ordered a scramble that was covered in some sort of questionable sauce – probably some sugar in there and probably cooked in a not so healthy oil. Also, ate a few bites of potato home fries. I’ve moved on.

I can’t believe this is almost over! Five days to go and they are going to fly by. I’m not going to lie, I’m looking forward to getting back to my normal balance. I’ve been thinking about the idea of “normal” and “moderation” a lot lately and I think I’ll write something separate about what that looks like for me. When I did my first Whole30 I sort of ate ALL THE THINGS once it was over and I’d like to not do that this time around.

Here’s the meal plan. I’m losing my desire to put a ton of effort into complicated recipes so this week is lots of leftovers, roasted veggies and meat from the freezer:

Note: All lunches are typically some form of leftovers from the day before. Every once in a while I’ll cook up a hot dog or have some deli meat instead but I thought it didn’t really need listing.

  1. Great job! I’m wishing mine was over in a few days haha… but my skin is looking great and my pants fit better as well. I’m looking forward to the end, but I REALLY need to figure out how to not completely binge on Day 31. It has definitely been a problem for me in the past.

    Guacamole is my spirit food. Ha! Yes, post challenge binge is a huge problem for me! Maybe we can swap strategies?
