“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20.

Pregnancy and Whole30

Ok here's how today went down.. Breakfast: 3 pieces of bacon, 1 egg, lunch: chicken curry, snacks: banana, egg, almonds, raisins, & dinner: crock pot Chinese pork loin (very good). Notice it has rice in it. Not compliant. Long story, worth reading if you're following my #whole30pregnancy adventures.... I walked in the door after class tonight (and work) and informed my husband that "I can NOT do #whole30 right now" I figured he would encourage me not to give up as we usually do and is be mad. Instead he said "that's ok, maybe it's something you need to wait and do once the baby has arrived". What a relief! I'm not crazy!!!! Then I called a BFF. She said "you're pregnant, it's hard regardless. If you can't do it right now it's OK" then I texted my mom (who's completed whole30) she said "I understand". These are the people who have done whole30 with me previously. All 3 of them. If they aren't trying to convince me I need to quit forcing myself. I literally feel as though my body is needing the grains and I literally don't have the energy to deal with the fatigue and fight of cravings vs. Willpower. With that said. I am not continuing #whole30 at this time but I am continuing to aim for the cleanest diet I can without going nutty in this pregnant body of mine. I don't intend to eat a lot of sugar but a bit of dairy and some grains will be incorporated. Whew. I'm so glad. I feel better. So for that reason I did eat rice at dinner then just because I had some Reese's puffs for dessert. I will continue to take my lunch to work, eat better breakfasts and avoid restaurants and the sodium that goes with them but I can NOT fight at this moment. I just can't be perfect at this moment. 

I was concerned about what Instagram and blog followers might think but at this moment that isn't my first concern. My first concern is feeling well. I do feel better in some aspects... Less "fluffy", less swollen, but I'm in a fatigued detox like state and I just don't have the energy. I would love for some of you to share with me how you manage 80/20 eating habits. To me if I eat 5 times a day (likely while preggo) that means 1 time a day I'm not compliant. How do y'all break this down? 

The Reese's!
