Whole 30 Meal Plan: Week Three

I cannot believe the weekend is over. Sometimes I really believe that a small part of me becomes depressed when I start getting my household ready for Monday.

This weekend went by far too quickly. Friday was low key so I was able to catch up on some of my shows from Bravo. My sweet husband woke up with E and took her on adventures (a.k.a.breakfast from Chick-fil-a and window shopping at Sears) while I relaxed in bed, cooked a delicious breakfast and caught up on Grey's Anatomy. E and I traveled to the park for a playdate and three mile run while my husband was busy bringing home his new toy, a '67 Mustang.

On Sunday morning we went to church and then took a field trip to the ER - yes, THAT ER. During service, J started having excruciating pain that mimicked a gallbladder attack. The funny thing is, he doesn't have a gallbladder. After chugging a GI cocktail and waiting multiple hours to receive his lab results, he felt better and we were given the all clear. Shout out to my fantastic neighbor who watched E for a few hours! Needless to say, our Sunday afternoon was spent scrambling around the house trying to get things done.

One of the items I HAD to do once the hospital released us was head to the grocery store. If I don't get groceries for the week, then I set myself up for failure on the eating healthy plan. This is particularly important as I am on my last week of Whole 30! Technically Valentine's Day is my day thirty, but I may continue on for a couple of days. Aside from grocery shopping, the most important thing I do to aid in a successful Whole 30 round is meal plan. Since I've shared my first two weeks of meals with you, I couldn't hold back my plan for week three, but will admit it's pretty boring.

    1. Absolutely. It's a hot mess if I can't prioritize grocery shopping.

  3. Adrienne, noooo!! A trip to the ER?! Thank goodness you guys didn't have to take E! That would have been a disaster.

  4. Whole 30 would be tough for me to give up all the good stuff. Maybe I should start with one, sugar or alcohol and work my way up!

    1. :) I thought the same thing. Surprisingly, alcohol was not as hard as I imagined it would be. I'm not a huge sweets lover, but sugar is in SO many things (like salad dressing) that it was a bit tough for the first few days of my initial round. If you ever decide to try, I'll be more than happy to help if I can!

  6. I just did a round of whole 30 and found it pretty easy. I'm going to check out your creamer. I did miss my 1/2 & 1/2.

    1. Hi Donna! Yes, check out the creamer. It is a great alternative to the sugary, dairy kind. I prefer the hazelnut and vanilla flavors. Check out nutpods - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01ENITUA0/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01ENITUA0&linkCode=as2&tag=bentleyliketh-20&linkId=643242444734ea4a985f230cfe93e438&th=1.
