Whole30 Week 4 Meal Plan + Shopping List

I’ll be honest…. Today is day 21, and I’m ready for a piece of pizza. Normally, this would be nearing the end of a Whole30. But since we’re doing 40 days, it’s only halfway. That said, even if I want pizza or some other treat, the craving just goes away, and I’m fine. It isn’t some persistent, miserable, pathetic longing for bread or sugar. It’s subtle. A gentle nudge from my not-so-ancient habits of grabbing a cookie, baking a loaf of bread, or putting sugar in my coffee. 

We will make it. And we may go past 40 days. I’ve got a weight number in mind. If I’m not there by day 41, I will just carry on. I am not great at making good food choices, so this is something I can stick to. Someone else made the rules, they’re set, and I can follow rules. I just can’t follow my own rules very well! Before I had Alexander I was …. X lbs. I gained 50 lbs while pregnant, and shortly after having him, I was at X+20. So I did a Whole30 way back then and I got back down to X. Then I got pregnant with Annabelle, and I got back to X+50. Shortly after having her, I was down to X+25. And that’s where I’ve stayed for 3 years. I’d be happy with X+10, but obviously X+5 or back to X is what I really would like.

That said, I HAVE been lifting weights, so I know that the number on the scale is not the only indicator of progress. I’m also looking at measurements and how my clothes look and fit. 

Okay enough about me…
