If you’re just joining me on these Whole30 posts, howdy! Here’s what you need to know about me: I love wine. I didn’t realize how addicted to sugar I was before doing this challenge.

By the time this posts, I will have hit day 15. Halfway through myWhole30. {What’s Whole30? Check out my post from last week which includes my Whole3 Week One meal plan} There was a part of me who thought I wouldn’t make it this far when I started this challenge. Today, I have no doubt I’ll make it to the end and am feeling great.

I have nothing too exciting to say other than the fact that I made it through my first really big social gathering during my Whole30. See below – I kept a daily diary (well, every few days) like I did last week. I’ll also include my meal plan again for the week.

Day 8-10: Not as much to report. It’s been pretty much smooth sailing. I’ve gotten into a groove with what I can and can’t eat and it doesn’t seem all that hard anymore. Made one of the best meals EVER the other day and have been eating it as leftovers since – Spaghetti Squash Fritters from the book Well Fed 2.

The recipe doesn’t seem to be online (a lot of copy cats) so you’re going to have to settle for Googling a copy cat or getting the book. But trust me, these were delish.

Day 11-13: Day 11 I woke up with a weird 24 hour stomach bug thing so I really didn’t eat much, as you’ll see on my meal plan. Day 12 was Saturday and I had a good friend’s 40th birthday. It was my first social outing while on Whole30. I did great! I have to admit: had I been at that party in the day 1-4 range, I am sure I would have caved and had wine. For me personally, I needed to have several low key days to get into eating this way being a routine. But by day 12, piece of cake! I drank my seltzer while everyone got drunk around me and I have to say: it was pretty interesting to watch everyone being totally clear.

Day 14: Two weeks. I *think* I may have lost a few pounds but I can’t be sure and won’t be until I step on the scale once this is all over and done with on day 31. If it’s anything, I feel like it’s not much yet though. But I’m still feeling great. Looking back, I think my food choices were a little better week one because I prepared a little better. I’m headed out to shop today with a good list for this third week.

Whole30 Meal Plan And one more time, if you missed it, here’s my post about Week One on the Whole30 plus my meal plan


  1. This is fairly hard core but I love the chance to hit the “reset” button with these 30-day challenges. Can’t wait to see the final results.

  2. Kate Bayless says

    Woohoo! Go you! I love how these kind of things make you be more creative with your eating.

  3. YOU CAN DO IT!!! Its so worth it, I promise. Even when I went back to eating ‘normal’ a ton of good habits came with me.

  4. This is my kind of eating plan! Love this!

  5. I swear I am SO impressed. I have thought about doing this so many times and just never hit the ‘do it’ button. I’ve adopted many paleo habits, but never fully given up wine 🙂 You are an inspiration – I love that you have the menus posted – I just may jump off the diving board 🙂

  6. I may need to try this. 🙂 WAY TO GO!!

  7. Going to try out a few of these and see how it goes. The Spaghetti Squash Fritters look awesome!

  8. GO YOU! I’m always so impressed when people do this ~ I have SO little willpower. Your post makes me tempted though =)

  9. I’m so impressed that you are doing this. I don’t have the discipline to do it, although I’m sure that I would benefit from it

  10. way to go! so impressed!
