Day 30 of Whole30

Holy Crap I did it!!! I didn't think I would be able to and I told myself you know your friends, your blog readers, and your husband have heard you say you were going to do some form of a diet or new way of eating etc. I really wanted to prove that I could do something I had set out to do. Now today is the last day and of course throughout the 30 days I had the mentality that YES when this is over I am going to do this and eat that etc. Of course that was not the goal of Whole 30, so as I sit here thinking about it I am not running out to celebrate completing this goal. I have went 30 days with out sugar or artificial sweetners, soda, coffee, legumes, grains, and dairy. I am not a pro at making paleo type meals yet and my go to meal (which is amazing) is 1/2 to a whole sweet potato (really a yam), an apple, 1/2 onion, and meat (whatever hits your fancy or you have in the fridge) sauteed up in cocount oil. OMG YUM. Oh and plantains with guacamole, who'd thought those two would go together so well. So for now I will continue to give up soda, coffee (because I have to have it sweet), dairy, grains, and legumes will stay out of my diet as well. I plan on having 1-4 splurge meals that are planned a month. I may go back to counting calories and definitely reintroducing the scale into my daily life.

Crossfit update:
I may have talked about it this but don't think I did. I am on night 3 of 3 shifts so forgive my brain, I have a hard time remembering what day/date it is come day 3. I have finished fundamentals and now can do the WOD with everyone else. My goal is 3 days of CF and 3 days of running (1 day will be a long run). I got off work on Wednesday morning and drove straight to Outlier, the WOD was OHS (overhead squats). OK I totally suck at these!!! I barely could add 10 lbs to each side of my barbell totalling 53lbs, other chics were squatting 145lbs! Their legs are AMAZING! I hoped to get off work Thursday morning and go running but Todd had an oral surgery scheduled for 6am so when I got off I decided to run by the peridontist to check on him and he had just finished up and was given Versed ( an amnesia medication) so he had to be wheelchaired out. Ya there went my run, I went home and tucked my missing a tooth husband into bed and curled up next to him to sleep away the day. And what's up with the dentist, Berk has a 9am appt today so no CF after work but YAY for being off till tuesday so I can hit the box in the evening after sleeping and doing cheif select errands for the man.

Running update:
I bought CW-X pants, you know the super duper expensive compression pants. Wow I wish I had those after my lower body lift. I also bought my first pair of Brooks running shoes, they were amazing. I did a 3.30mile run in them tueday and had no blisters!

Well peeps I am off here to prepare for the day and the weekend!
