Mondays with Michelle

Hello Lovelies! It’s another Monday with Michelle from michellephilippi.com. I must say I love Sunday nights because I get to read her updates :) So let’s check in!

Counting the hours, my friends, counting the hours!

As I write this I am on day 28 of my 30-day Whole30 journey.  “Journey” seems like such a big and long word for a 30-day eating regimen, but it’s been something, that’s for sure.

This week was rough.  I did not want to eat anything.  Food simply did not appeal to me.  I read on the official Whole30 timeline that this happens, but it happened a week late for me.  I could eat fruit all day long, but even though they are natural sugars, it’s still sugar, so I didn’t do that.  I was sick of vegetables without butter on them.  Meat is starting to taste bland – I was missing cream sauces and barbecue sauce and real ketchup.  So I didn’t eat much.  Thing is though, I was still full and never hungry.  I had been eating my 3 meals a day, but this week I could not choke down 3 meals and did mostly a day meal and a dinner meal.  I was almost in tears one night and I said “I hate food” all whiney and crybabyish.  Never in my life have I not wanted food – hence my problem – LOL  But I powered through.

And as of this writing I have lost 30.8 pounds.
My husband has lost 38.2 pounds.  Holy crap he’s doing so good!  So am I, but dang, he’s a champ.

Kat had asked me how my kids are doing with Whole30.  I would say they are on a modified, more loose version of it.  They eat mostly what we eat, but they still have rice with their dinner, and a glass of milk; and cereal for breakfast.  However, I have noticed their snacking habits have improved.  My son has been eating carrots with peanut butter a lot lately – even with chips and popcorn in the house.  And my daughter made herself a salad yesterday – as a snack.  So the healthy eating is getting through to them and I think that’s fantastic.  My daughter even told me that “technically” they are doing Whole30 too – ha.  Cute, but not even…

Alright.  I have 2 days left – today and tomorrow.  I’ll be back next week with my final report of how I finished and what I did after I finished.

xoxo,
Michelle

  1. I know exactly what you mean with the whole food-is-not-appealing-thing! Just this morning I was thinking about how I need to spice up some of my meals before I develop an aversion to food! Glad to hear that this is not only me.
