Good morning cupcakes!
I cannot believe it is the last week of Whole30 already! Where has time gone? Anyways, I am feeling great and I can see changes in my body (I will post my progress photo on Day 30!). This weekend was a little rough on me. It was that time of month.... so along with the cramps and bloating came the negative body image thoughts. I think this is pretty common for most women during their time of the month. So, what do you do when these thoughts enter your mind? What I like to do is tell myself 3 things I love about my body right when I am having negative thoughts. Stay positive! I also normalize the situation for myself. I tell myself, "this is only a few days out of my life and I know that my hormones are going crazy right now. This is only temporary and my body doesn't normally look or feel like this!" It is sooo important to not let these thoughts get to you and your emotions. Negative thoughts can give way to emotional eating too, so..... Love your body!
Here is a picture of my morning workout:
Breakfast was hot lemon water followed by 2 scrambled eggs, berries, 1/2 a banana, and homemade pecan butter.
Lunch: unstuffed peppers with avocado.
Dinner: zucchini/ sweet potato noodles
Snack: carrots with homemade almond butter
