Whole 30 day 18-20.. went to the summer cabin for the weekend.

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 😀

My flight left at 10pm so I decided to have a last dinner at Cheesecake Factory in Marina Del Ray, which is one of my favorit places to eat at. We sat outside at the lower deck, they gave us our own little cabana corner!! The view was amazing, the beach was right outside with the water front very close 🙂 I had my favorit meal the Herb Crusted Salmon and Shrimp Scampi and for dessert I chose the 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake and I have to say this cheesecake is WOW oh so delicious!!!!! It is the best one I have ever tasted. I was so happy and emotional to see everyone, so sad to leave. I feel at home in LA, I hope to move back one day soon 😀
