My blogging has been a failure recently, but I’m happy to report Whole30 has not been.
21 days completed, 9 very short days to go. I feel like these last few days are really going to fly by, at least I certainly hope they do! At this stage in the challenge, it has really become my norm and I’m getting through most days without many bumps in the road. I mean there is still the nightly ritual of begging Husband if we can order a pizza, but no matter how much I beg we both know I would never actually succumb.
At this point, I’m starting to wonder what will life look like after Whole30? It’s hard to say. I know going into the holidays I don’t desire to stick to a super strict diet, and I’m already planning Whole30 round TWO in January. But I’m happy to say, I really don’t have a desire to fully return to how we were eating before (apart from Pizza, of course). I think it will take some time and discovering what foods affect me the worst to really nail down how I want to continue this journey.
However, that’s more of a discussion for next week. I’m happy to report this will be the fourth and final menu post for my first Whole30. Because there will only be two days of Whole30 next week, I decided to just go ahead and plan those meals out as well and include them this week. I’ll probably check in as soon as Whole30 is over with an update and the rest of next weeks menu. Now for this week, a few I wanted to squeeze in as well as the return of a few favorites.

Tuesday || Dijon Pork Tenderloin, Roasted Zucchini, & Baked Potatoes
