I awoke on Day 28 of my Whole 30 practice and quickly got dressed to drop Drew off at school and go for a walk. I’m a little behind in my laundry and there were slim pickings in my closet. I grabbed a shirt that I bought a few months ago and forgot that it was skin tight on me and showed my belly rolls. When I got downstairs, I realized the shirt wasn’t tight anymore and now fits loose! What a great feeling! I couldn’t help but take a selfie. Unfortunately, the Whole30 has done a lot of great things for me but it hasn’t made my arms longer, so I cut my head off the picture :)…
I quickly drank a cup of bone broth before I left the house.
While walking I realized that I have been really tired the last couple of days. As I flipped through my journal on my phone, I decided that it is because I stopped getting the magical vitamin B shots from the weight loss clinic. I called and made an appointment to go in as soon as I was done walking. I had a few other errands to run and wasn’t going to have time to eat a real breakfast so I stopped at the store and bought an RX Bar and a LaCroix to hold me over.
I had the most unusual chiropractor visit today. I made an appointment not because I needed any of his services but because I remembered his assistant measured me last month and I wanted to get my hands on those before measurements. When the assistant gave them to me, I was so excited I almost skipped out of the office!
When I got home, I was famished. I was meeting a group of girls for lunch so I only had time for a quick snack. I downed one of my Whole30 favorites Performance Nut Butter and got ready for lunch.
For lunch, I had a hamburger with mushroom, onion, and lettuce, broccoli, and fruit. Because I need my healthy fats for satiety, I ate a handful of cashews when I got home.
As soon, as I got home, I ran upstairs to take my measurements. I know I should have waited until day 30, but I couldn’t. Ask me how many inches I have lost in one month? It’s pretty crazy! 12! Twelve inches lost in my neck, chest, stomach, hips, thighs, arms, forearms, and wrists!
For dinner, we had leftover pot roast from The Whole30 Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom. It was even more delicious as a leftover than it was the first time around!
Since my kids were both happily playing or hanging (as my teenager would say) at other people’s houses, I poured a hot bath, grabbed a good book, and a LaCroix and called it a night. Whole30 Day 28 was a success.
