Reality Checks

Another one bites the dust…

Alright, I’ll confess – I didn’t make it to day 30.  I got to 25 and between the travel and the stress, I just couldn’t make it the last 5 days.  Part of me is really disappointed – I was hoping I could hold out to the end, but sometimes you just gotta lose a battle to win the war.

I haven’t come off of Paleo, short of a few dishes over the weekend with some dairy in them, but I have reintroduced some honey and maple syrup here and there, and the scale shows it.   I’m determined to learn from my latest Whole30 experience, however, and limit my sugar intake a little better than I did over the holidays.

In other news, I had my best 5k run time ever (beat my Jingle Bell Run time) on Saturday, and am feeling pretty good otherwise.

If you’re still hanging in there for the last few days, I applaud you!  Keep it up!

  1. I’m very proud of how well you did. We had extenuating circumstances that conspired against your finishing it this time. I know we will continue to eat well and reach our next goals together! Thank you for continuing to make amazing meals and to help keep me on-track.

  2. Reblogged this on Paleo Marine and commented:
    Sherry’s update on her Whole30. Spoiler: it ended early, but it wasn’t all her fault. I’m very proud of her and how she’s continuing with the healthy eating and exercise which, in turn, allows me to do so. I couldn’t do this without her!

  3. I made it the full 30 days and I am super proud of myself and actually am quite surprised that I was able to hang in there. Believe, around day 25 and 26 I was about to give in! I haven’t really re-introduced anything other than Stevia in my coffee because I truly haven’t had a craving for non compliant foods- totally crazy. But I guess that was the whole point! LOL

    1. Congratulations! That’s fantastic…and I’m glad you beat the cravings too. Bonus! Do you mind if I ask how much weight you lost in the 30 days?
