I can’t believe I got through a whole week of Whole30!  The adjustment has be harder in some ways than I thought, and easier in other ways.

Whole30 Week 1: I Cheated but Didn't - EverydayStarlet.com

If you’ve been following me on social media (and you should be, of course) then you know I kinda cheated, but didn’t, on Whole30 with these mock pancakes.  The ingredients are all Whole30 approved, but making them into pancakes is not “in the spirit of Whole30″… but they’re keeping me sane!

I thought I would sum up each day in a Facebook post…

  • Today is Day 1 of my Whole30 quest! That means I’m giving up sugar, dairy, grains, alcohol, and a bunch of other stuff for 30 days. This will be a stressful enough challenge already, so if everyone on social media could refrain from talking about politics, religion, tragedy, or any other controversial subjects for the next 30 days I’d really appreciate it!
  • Whole 30 Day 2: I ventured out to eat and the waiter put cheese on my salad even though I ask for it without….. I would have made a scene but I’m too tired from lack of sugar
  • Whole30 Day 3: I think food commercials are mocking me
  • Whole30 Day 4: It’s snowing… but I don’t feel bad that I forgot to pick up bread and milk, because I can’t eat it anyway
  • Whole30 Day 5: I hate everything I’m allowed to eat
  • Whole30 Day 6: Since giving up sugar I’m sleeping better than ever….unfortunately it’s at noon
  • Whole30 Day 7: I’ve been watching Total Divas for fitness motivation. It’d be nice to look like them… but I don’t know if John Cena’s physique suits my face

For a recap of my first week of Whole30, here is my vlog…

  • My husband and I just finished the Whole 30 Challenge. It was hard (since our kids weren’t on the diet so we still had in out home and had to prepare foods that we couldn’t eat. ) You can do it!

    • That much have been hard… my family isn’t on it, but they’re being flexible with food to be supportive. i don’t know if I could get through it otherwise 🙂

  • Was so excited to hear your update! Eating out on Whole 30 has got to be hard – super impressed with you! I’ve been trying to do the vegan thing and cutting out processed foods – and any major change in diet can have such effects on the body. Also – I prefer eggs in a cake too 😉

    • Thanks for the support! I really would love to go vegan, I just don’t know if I could pull it off 🙂

    omg I LOVE Total Divas. I want to be Brie Bella more than anything. But also, I can’t do a burpee to save my life. I tweeted the other day: “Here’s how I stay skinny: high waisted pants.”

    • Haha, love it! I have a Brie Bella makeup look coming tomorrow 🙂 LOVE her!
