Only 10 days left! How have I made it through 20 days already? Lots of good food, that's how! Have I been tempted by goodies? Yes, by birthday cake 3 times! The moon cakes on the counter, that my father in law dropped off, almost derailed me. I had to ask my husband to hide them! That chewey, waxy goodness sounded so delicious. I don't even know why! But, I refrained and we are back to cruising along.
I've found some new foods I enjoy. I've learned that potatoes and olives are pretty good together and that I enjoy raw carrots for breakfast. Would not have guessed that! I've enjoyed cooking and taking the time to make healthy, delicious meals. Rob has enjoyed it too. He has liked everything I've made so far and I think the fact that nothing contains dairy for him is a relief. I'm starting to wonder what this will look like post Whole30.
I'm now convinced that something I was eating was literally making me sick. I don't yet know what it was but this has been the most humbling and enlightening part of this Whole30 experience. I had no expectations coming in and I didn't suspect any particular food sensitivities. But, what I found is that what I considered the natural state of my body really wasn't, and that it's changeable just with food. Holy wow.
I'm excited for the next 10 days and apprehensive about the reintroduction period. So, for now, I'm gonna rock this clear skin and skirt I haven't worn in 3 years like the confident girl I am today!
