Whole30 No More…

I feel like Michael and I been going non-stop this weekend and our errands/chores aren’t even half way complete. This morning we woke up at 7, made breakfast, baked some cookies (for CrossFit), and finished our Trader Joe’s shopping all before 9. I had high hopes that we would make it through the weekend eating clean to finish our Whole30 strong, but sadly it wasn’t meant to be. That’s right, I broke down and ate one of the cookies I baked for CrossFit, and from there it all fell apart. I’m sure you’re wondering why I needed cookies for the gym. Well, today our CrossFit box held a 1 rep max day – instead of a normal workout we worked on finding our 1 rep max for three different lifts, then had a lunchtime barbecue. By the time the food came out, my self control had already gone out the window. Who can say no to rocky road chocolate bars? Oops. I’m still labeling this Whole30 as a success – 29 days of clean eats is pretty damn amazing.

I have to say that I’m really proud of us for making it this far. It was most definitely worth it, my sleep has improved, I have more energy in the gym, and I just feel better about myself in general. There’s really not a lot of things that feel better than being happy with what you see in the mirror. Yay for self love! Ha!

Getting back to the 1 rep max day, it was cool to see how much we’ve improved since starting CrossFit.

I look at these pictures and can’t believe that’s us doing these crazy movements. If you would’ve told me a year ago that I’d be squatting 110 lbs I would have laughed in your face. It’s amazing how life can change so quickly. I love it!

Alright, it’s time to start crossing off more items on our to do list. We’re throwing a super bowl party tomorrow so we have to clean, cook, and run some more errands. I’ll leave you with my food journal from the last days of our January Whole30.
