Back to normal: #Whole30 Days 23 to 26


I am so pleased to report a return to how good I had been feeling, prior to my last post.  Day 23 just saw me kind of snap out of it and get back to what feels increasingly normal.

I haven’t really tracked my thoughts day by day to be honest, so I’ve just jotted some of my general feelings over the last few days.

I’m bored of salad for lunch now, so I am going to hunt out some recipes for soups, though it feels a bit wrong to have soup when it is so lovely outside.  Soup, in my world, is definitely a non-summer item.  Matt is quite happy to go to soups in the autumn too, provided that I make him carrot and coriander (one of the few soups I don’t like).

I’ve been productive during my day times, with no mid-afternoon slumps, and sugar hasn’t really featured in to my head, which is saying something as it was payroll processing this week, and that can be stressful and/or tiring mentally.  I really swear that the best thing I have done has been to make batches of main meals for the evenings, as this was definitely a trigger time of the month for gorging on junk food.

The only thing that I think I have noticed is that I am beginning to let the good habits drop a bit, like having a Nakd bar after tea, just for something sweet.  I don’t need it at all, so I will have to work on reining that back in.

Meanwhile… I’m dreaming of a cup of tea!

  1. Paddington Bear..
    I know it’s a lovely teacup but it reminds me of my childhood.
    Strangely I have soup’s here and there in summer – I know it sound’s odd but you can make them quite filling but the idea of cold soup spooks me so prob not idea for this humid patch! Quite fancy a Nakd bar…don’t need one but really want one! x

    • I love Paddington. I don’t really know why, I just like the stories I think.

      Oh no – gazpacho is just something that sounds plain wrong to me! I can’t get my head around cold soup at all.

      It’s gotta be a cocoa orange or rhubarb and custard one for me! They’re my favourites!

  2. Good on you for managing the whole 30 days – not sure if I could! I had never heard of the plan before but am reading up on it thanks to your blog. Well done!

    • I would definitely recommend it! The resources on whole30.com are really good and you don’t need to buy the book (It Starts With Food) if you don’t want to. It isn’t too bad if you are prepared and make it through the first few days.

  3. Soup is one thing that I just would not have when it is hot- it really belongs to an autumnal/ winter day!

  4. I hadn’t heard of this plan – sounds very difficult, but I can certainly see how it would be effective. Well done for sticking to it for so long!

    • Thanks Shannon! It isn’t the easiest plan in the world when you start going with it, but it definitely gets easier when you’re in the swing of it. I suspect it is easier to do over in the States where paleo is a bit more common.
