Whole 30: Day 10 (Or, Year One)

I have barely eaten today and yesterday. It's the strangest thing, I just have absolutely no appetite. I'm not even thinking about food. This is completely foreign to me.

Today is my one year anniversary of being married. I'll write more about that later, perhaps - long story short, though, it's been a very difficult year. This morning I woke up and thought about if I should break the Whole 30 just for today, or if I should stick with it. Even the Whole 30 folks say that once in a while, for a birthday or an anniversary or whatever, life happens, it's okay to deviate - as long as you get right back on plan.

I decided to weigh myself instead. The loss so far is significant - but I'm still more than 20 pounds more than I was on this date last year. So I think I'll stick with the Whole 30, thank you very much. I'm going to make a wonderful compliant dinner for myself - I'm thinking maybe shrimp ... or lobster.

Making a wonderful compliant dinner is a great idea. Our wedding anniversary falls inside of our Whole60, so that means crab legs for me, a steak for Jason, and a delicious baked potato and broccoli. Good food is good.

Happy Anniversary!!

Last year I went through the Whole 30 on my birthday... and it's funny because while Joel wanted to take me out to dinner, we ended up making a great meal instead, no complaints from me. We even went to the movies and I think I snacked on something like sweet potato chips as a way of being compliant but not necessarily "good."

I hope that you two have a great evening reflecting on the first year! THey say the first year can be the hardest, so maybe year 2 will be much much better!

The first year of marriage is hard...never mind the first year of marriage plus a baby plus a move plus a new job. WOW! And you're tackling weight loss as well. Thanks for blogging. I admire you.

Happy anniversary! The 30th day of my first Whole30 was on my birthday. I wanted to end early, but the feeling of seeing it through the entire 30 days was better than any wine or cake.

Oooh lobster! I'd definitely go for the lobster. Congrats on 1 year of marriage! And congrats on being so awesome.
