Life got kind of busy this week and since blogging is definitely a hobby (not a source of income), my posts have fallen to the wayside.  That said, I still want to share my experience and what I'm eating on this journey.  Though I plan to be a little less strict on my sugar intake and indulge in the occasional glass of wine post-Whole 30, there are a lot of aspects of the program I plan to adopt long-term.

I found it very helpful to read about other people's journeys so I would know what to expect.  I especially like the blog post about the Whole 30 timeline.  Having read it, I wasn't as surprised by my overwhelming desire to nap during the first few days or my huge burst of energy over the past couple of days.

Below are a few of my favorite meals from the past couple of days:

Looking back on the past few days, I think I've eaten more than my share of chicken.  I will challenge myself to add a bit of variety in my protein sources for the next couple of days.
