Yo, I officially have 9 more days left! I made it through week three and I couldn’t be more happier. Y’all know I’ve been struggling for months now just to complete another round of the Whole30! So lets take a look at this past week.
There will be so many times you feel like you’ve failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child you are a super mom. And don’t you forget it!
- The feeling of guilt, doubt, anxiousness or uncertainty experienced by mothers when they worry they’re failing or falling short of expectations in some way.
Before having a baby, I would occasionally hear about this thing called mom guilt. I could not, for the life of me, understand why it was so difficult for someone to leave their child. Whether it was to go workout, hang out with friends, or even just too simply have some me time. Now I have a one year old and completely understand this whole mom guilt thing and I believe we do it to ourselves. In my opinion, mom guilt is induced and we Mama’s should give ourselves a break, as if there is not enough social pressures already.
I can’t believe I made it through week 2 y’all!
DAY 8 – DAY 11
Honestly, I was just so over the Whole30. Eating the same thing over and over again was just really getting on my nerves. Now, one positive thing is that my energy levels are definitely on the up and up which is nice. I was debating on just stopping, but I put it in my mind that I only have 2 more weeks to go. I ended up going to a birthday dinner on Friday, I had broccoli, salmon, and potatoes (thank God potatoes are Whole30 compliant!) and some of my friends were praising me on my weight loss journey. Little did they know they just encouraged me to push a little bit more.
My beautiful boy you are one. You are officially a toddler, but you will forever, and always be my baby.
I feel like it was just yesterday that I took that pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant at work. I remember going to get an ultrasound and already panicking because they couldn’t find you at 5 weeks or maybe it was 8 weeks. I remember laying in bed at night feeling comforted by your kicks and movements since your father was away at work. I remember when I first saw you, you instantly made everything better for me. I’ve never, in my life, known a love like this.
This year has went by so fast. And it has taught me to spend time with my loved ones as much as I can. It has most definitely taught me to enjoy every single moment with you Papa. You are my light, I will love you always. I promise to be the best mother that I can be, and that’ll I’ll be by your side every step of the way.
Here is a short recap of week 1!
DAY 1 – DAY 2
Um …. you know how I always say that starting something new is always refreshing!? Well it wasn’t this time around for some reason, the first two days were horrible and I was just so over it! I was literally craving everything there was to crave, mainly sweets. I don’t know if I was having withdrawals from sugar or what! I honestly ate like 4 banana’s Wednesday (day 2) just to try and curb my sweet tooth.
I weighed in on October 8, 2019, at 199 lbs. Hoping to reach my goal of losing at least 10 lbs and completing a successful Whole30.
Ladies and gentlemen, remember a couple of months ago when I shared with you guys that I was going to start the Whole30, Round 2, and be serious about it. Yeah, I only recapped the first week and a couple of days later I was over it. That’s obviously why I haven’t posted again regarding the Whole30. Before I get into why it’s not for me, I’m going to provide you with a list of things you can eat while on the Whole30, if it’s not on the list I’m sorry you cannot have it!!! So yes, no cookies, no alcohol, no legumes, no dairy, etc. Trust me the list goes on what you can’t have, compared to what you can have.
