Whole30 • Round3 • Week3

Hey Y’all – Happy MLK Jr. Day! 
I can’t believe tomorrow marks Day 15 – can you believe we’re already halfway?!
Let’s kick things off with a little week two round up shall we? 
  • What Surprised Me Most? Honestly it’s gotta be how quickly this round is going; I can’t believe tomorrow marks the halfway point! 
  • How Am I Feeling? GREAT! Haven’t felt tired or bloated for weeks & my snack cravings haven’t been too bad either. When I am feeling like a need something I’ll typically reach for a Chomp (nom nom) or some walnuts/almonds. 
  • Social Life: This is starting to weigh on me; I’ve got a friend with a birthday coming up @ the end of this month & I want to go out so badly. Yes… I know I can go out; but it’ll go 1 of 3 ways. 
    • I’ll cave, then feel horribly bad about it later.
    • I won’t cave & will be HANGRY AF about an hour in.
    • I won’t cave & will spend the evening on my phone because I’ll be bored AF while everyone else is drinking (been here before).
  • My “Stay Strong” Moment of the Week: My one bestie at work has been out for the last few weeks & is FINALLY BACK. Early in the week I ended up staying late & my other bestie planned on driving me home. One thing led to another & the besties thought it would be an amazing idea to go out to one of our favorite ASIAN restaurants. Needless to say I wanted to go so badly because we haven’t gotten to hang in FOREVER & um, duh – I love all things Asian. I ended up not going 😦 And it SUCKED. But, I would have caved & so in the end it was the right decision. BLEH tho. 
Now, when you read through the above you might find yourself saying; Nikki, you don’t need soy sauce or alcohol to go out & be social you know. Yes, I know. However, being my 3rd round of Whole30, I’ve just found that sometimes it’s easier to hibernate a bit through this detox & make plans for February. By all means, go out, have fun, enjoy ALL OF THE THINGS – but if you do, my advice would be to plan, plan, plan ahead. 
  • Eat in advance, just in case there’s nothing compliant where you’re headed.
  • BRING SNACKS. 
    • Yes, I know snacking is “taboo” on Whole30 – but it’s good to have an emergency plan just in case. 
  • If you’re going to someone else’s house, bring your own drinks, drinking La Croix in a wine or cocktail glass will make you feel like you’re fitting in (yea yea yea I know this doesn’t REALLY MATTER) but it will take attention off you so you aren’t constantly being asked if you need a drink or why you aren’t drinking or if you’re pregnant (NOPE – STILL NOT PREGNANT!) 
    • Please tell me it’s not just my friends that are like this? LOL…
