Still doing a the whole30, however this weekend i did “cheat” on saturday when I went to a dinner we were invited to. I had some wine and sauce to the fish that was served. On Sunday evening on our way home I also ended up having kabob with rice and creamy garlic sauce ( i thought they were going to give me the tomato sauce). It was very interesting because I felt a difference really fast in my body. It is strange how quickly I can feel a difference. I will continue to do the whole 30, and even if i will not have done it 100 % correct I still feel like it’s been fantastic and I still have some days to go. I don’t feel like a failure, and no one should just because things didn’t go like planned. We just need to continue to do the best we can and not give up 😀

On sunday I made some crock pot italian meatballs recipe below, original recipe here. On monday I ended up getting sick at work and I was sick all week ..feeling fatigue and heavy in my head with flu like symptoms. But my spirit is feeling fantastic hahaha. So I didn’t work out at all this week..letting my body heal. On monday eve I made some really good ice cream and on tuesday my friend came over for lunch and I made some delisious salmon with broccoli rice and of course some ice cream for desert 😀 She loved it by the way. She got so inspired to eat healthier now. Yes you can eat really really good and still eat healthy 🙂
So my Whole30 is completed and this time it was harder then the last 2 times, partially bacuase I ended up with stomach issues. So I had to eat more fruits and smoothies to combat it. Then I had to fast for my check up. I also had sugar at 2 different occations. However I am happy I did it and it may not have been 100% clean…but atleast I tried. It is better to attempt and fail then to not attempt at all 😀 I did inspire one friend to do it with me, and she did very well lost a lot of inches. I also inspired antoher friend to try it…the one I cooked for on tuesday ;D
