Whole 30 Meal Plan: Week Four

Whew! I'm finally finished with my final week of Whole 30!

In all honesty, the more rounds I accomplish, the easier it is to cook and eat out while participating in a Whole 30 round. Stay turned as I will be sharing some tips for eating out, places to eat, and a resource to make your Whole 30 experience as easy and organized as possible.

Since I finished my round a few days ago, I did try a few things off plan this weekend. On Friday, I was finally able to get my hair done. This appointment was so overdue that it wasn't even funny. My roots were screaming for some bleach!  I decided to stop by Starbucks on the way to the hair salon for a Caramel Macchiato. It was very sugary - typically I ask for half the amount of syrup/flavor, but forgot as I was in a hurry. Oh well. My hair drank more bleach than normal in anticipation of the warmer weather ahead and I came home a happy girl!

On Saturday morning I woke up and met a friend for some target practice at the gun range. I have learned that I have a weak (or weird) grip that causes my gun to sometimes jam so it looks like private classes are in my near future.


Following the shooting range we talked ourselves into a much needed trip to the gym and I came home to give J a break and hang out with E for a while. The night ended with a dinner at one of the delicious eateries downtown with a few of my lady friends from the neighborhood.


Appetizers were ordered, cocktails consumed, dinners devoured and two desserts may have popped up on our table. All of which inspired this Boomerang.

My mommy friend G and I were laughing since we apparently dressed alike for dinner. In case you would also like to dress as a mom on your night out, grab a pair of skinny jeans, a black shirt, and a fun long necklace. #momming



Sunday involved church, visiting family, chores and a volunteer dinner at church. Low key as always.

Finally, happy Presidents' Day! For the first time since I've been with my company, we have today off. I'm taking advantage of having a day to myself by working out, folding laundry, grocery shopping, meal planning, making some decisions for the HOA and catching up on my beloved TV shows.

I hope you have an equally productive and entertaining Monday!

    1. Chipotle is my go-to place when doing a round AND when not doing a round, haha. I could eat there every day and not get sick of it!

  3. I have been looking at doing the plant-based diet which seems pretty similar to Whole 30. I know it's definitely a struggle to be 100% compliant so congrats on finishing your final week!

  4. It sounds like you had a great weekend! I love the concept of the Whole 30 plan, but I hate meat, so it wouldn't work well for me!f Stopping by from Tuesday Talk. XOXO

    1. Thank you. Cheers for getting our hair done! My time in between was much longer than a month though, haha. I'm really bad about staying on top of my hair schedule!

  7. Love how you put the meal plans together!! Definitely emulating if I ever do another Whole30. I agree on those Starbucks drinks!! I'm usually a cappuccino gal (so no added sweeter and VERY strong coffee flavor) but you might like the new Cascara - just very subtle sweetness :)

    1. Are you doing it with him? I WISH my husband would do it with me! Granted, he eats what I cook, but doesn't follow it at work or if he's out.
