I’m almost half way there! I can hardly believe it myself.
I know I can do this, even though sometimes I really just want some peanut butter covered in chocolate. But if I stay strong for 30 days I will be able to figure out just how the peanut butter or chocolate affect me, or if it does at all.
Meals have been really simple, which is helping me not freak out too much about how to stay on track. Protein, tons of veggies, and sometimes a potato for some starch. There are also lots of salads happening.
There is one Whole30 rule I have been breaking: snacking.
With the amount of dancing I am doing on the weekdays choreographing Kiss Me, Kate at one school and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee for a children’s theatre I find I am in need of some extra energy. So instead of completely stuffing myself at meals, I am relying on fruits and nuts (and the occasional Larabar…I know its kinda technically breaking the rules too) to keep me going.
In other news: My students are freaking awesome. They continue to amaze me with their dedication and hard work. Plus, they are keeping this process lots of fun when it could be grueling trying to teach 22 musical theatre numbers in less than a month!
Now to make some tea and settle in for the State of the Union.
Keep it Whole30 and fierce!
