Let me just say that travelling and the whole 30 aren’t really friends. But I knew that, right? You can only eat so much trail mix in one weekend…and besides, travelling for me is so much about food: finding new restaurants, trying new food, DESSERT, and the whole 30 is so not about that. So, steak and broccoli it was! Our hotel actually had EGGS and BACON at their continental breakfast, so that was a bonus! (Even though I had made and brought my own sweet potato/carrot pancake things just in case I needed to eat on the go before my exam!) The second day I had a gluten free cookie from an awesome farmers market in Helena (it was worth it!) and a chai latte (with milk! gasp!) and my salad for lunch had corn and black beans. For shame! And you know what? I’m okay with that. I am happy that I did this whole 30 (even with my little cheats) and I am happy with my progress and the small changes in my body. And I am happy that later today I will be eating tasty and sinful treats with the girls at work. (FULL of gluten! And dairy! And processed ingredients!) I’m bringing maple pecan bars.
Ya, you can be jealous!
Stay tuned for a wrap-up post on my whole 30! Measurements, photos and all!
