After talking about doing another Whole30, we decided we would start one in the New Year. Well, I got the stomach flu for Christmas and then Garth had to leave for a training in Atlanta, so we decided to start on January 16th.
We spent the evening before prepping lots of food. We chopped up veggies, made two egg casseroles for breakfasts, whipped up some tuna salad, made some mashed potatoes and put together some salad. We were ready to take on week 1!
If you are considering doing a Whole30, or even if you’re in the process of one, and you haven’t bought Whole30 Day by Day, we highly recommend it. Melissa Hartwig, co-creator of Whole30 walks you through what each day may be like for you. It’s also a way to journal and keep track of how you feel each day. Here’s what our days have started out like:
Side note: We recently began eating at our table. We’ve really enjoyed the routine of talking about our day and then bringing out the Whole30 Day by Day to discuss our Whole30 journey.
What went well?
MG– It was so nice having food prepped and not having to think about what I would eat for each meal. I drank quite a bit of water and didn’t have any cravings really.
G– Having our food prepped was nice, especially on a busy work day.
What could have gone better?
MG– Honestly, with having our food prepped, I felt like everything went very well.
G– Work was so busy, I would like to be on more of a schedule eating.
What will you do tomorrow?
MG– I’d like to try to keep up with what I’m doing.
G– I’ll make sure to eat breakfast before leaving the house.
