Wow what a week! You are probably wondering what happened to my updates 😀 Well we had the biggest storm in Vancouver since 2006 and more than 500 000 people were left without power. Including me! The power went out on Friday and we got it back just last night. Craziness! The most problematic situation at our house was the freezer and fridge. Nothing else really mattered as much. The kids loved it because we spent every minute playing and cuddling (opposed to them playing and me doing laundry, ironing, cleaning, cooking, etc.) With no power I had the perfect excuse to just sit back, relax, knit and play with my kids 😀 No power also meant no Internet, and so no updates on my blog.
I did finish the Whole30 challenge though. My menu was quite interesting actually. We ate out a few times and I only had some salads, plain chicken wings or fish. It was a bit hard to keep up with the menu but I did it. Thank God for trail mix 😀 haha
Yesterday, August 31, I had 2 croissants and 2 chocolate covered cookies as a treat after being so good throughout the month. One thing I realized is I really don’t want to go back to eating sugars and grains. I mean if I absolutely have to, I can have some toast but it’s not going to be the first thing I choose any more. Also with dairy… I like milk and cheese so maybe I can have some every once in a while but not all the time like I used to. So I am definitely making some changes and the biggest with giving up sugar and junk.
This month I have to focus on training as I have my half marathon coming up so I need to do as much as possible. I will continue to eat whole foods and not too different from Whole30 (maybe with a few exceptions) but mostly the same way. And see what happens 😀
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I’ll be tuning in again soon… now the piles of laundry and vacuum cleaner are calling me 😀
