So week two was much harder than week one. I had a rough week mentally with the kids so it was much more challenging this week. I've felt really good the past couple days. I think things are leveling out because I just feel good. Which is how I want to feel. Sure the crazy energy is great but I know that won't hold up forever. I just want to feel happy with myself and that's how I feel right now. The only thing I'm fighting are the cravings when I get stressed in the afternoons. I want to eat and it doesn't matter what it is. I'm not even sure if those will go away. I've tried making myself happy in other ways but right now eating is what makes me the happiest. I haven't given in to those urges. I'm practicing some tough love on myself in hopes of breaking that cycle.
How are you feeling this week? Go link up with Courtney!
I reheated that frittata I made yesterday and topped it with fresh salsa and avocado. Plus a side of strawberries and blackberries.
Well I'm just adapting everyone's recipes because lunch was an adaptation of this recipe for tuna cakes. I don't even know what I threw in the bowl but it was amazing. The cakes held together nicely and really crisped up on the outside.
Plus I had some massaged kale drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
One thing I've learned on my foodie adventure is to get a good balsamic vinegar.
I'm not talking the $50 bottle on the shelf... I think this was $12 and it was worth every penny. It's so sweet and tangy. It's very different from the $3.99 bottle.
I went back for more balsamic!
Italian meatballs with spaghetti squash all cooked in Raos marinara.
Plus simple greens with olive oil, fresh lemon, and more balsamic.
Nothing! I haven't been going crazy with exercise during this Whole30. I've been kind of busy with errands and honestly I guess the gym hasn't been a priority.
How I feel:
This morning started out a little rough emotionally for me but I was fine around lunch time. These dang kids are sucking the life out of me. I never once had a craving today or wanted to eat out of stress. Crazy!
