With only two whole days left to go, I think I finally hit my "Tiger Blood" stride, if a little late. And I am most definitely in the HolyOprahIt'sAlmostOverWhatOnEarthDoIEatNow?! phase. When I went to the store today, I bought a couple of things that I hadn't even looked at during my Whole30. Goat cheese and tortillas... heyo!
And then I felt... guilty.
I hadn't even eaten these things yet, and already I'm feeling pangs of stop it stop it stop it! That's not approvedddd!! guilt.
At the beginning of the Whole30, I would have killed someone for a Coke. I wanted to throttle someone who ate a cheesy pizza in front of me. But now, as Melissa Hartwig put so well in her blog post, my "Worth It" foods have changed. Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks? It was worth it at the beginning, but it isn't now. Cheese on my chili relleno, bread on my sandwich, mayo with my sweet potato fries... not worth it.
Did I buy some non-Whole30 items at the store the other day? Yes.
Am I planning on binge-eating the lot of it on Day 31? Heck, no. I feel too good, I look too good, and there's too much goodness out there to throw it all away.
Day 29 Recap:
Breakfast: mango & apple fruit bar from TJ's
Lunch: Whole Foods salad bar
