#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | Whole30 Confessions

Hello lovelies!

We're half way there - we've made it to humpday! Yeehaw!

So per usual, one of my blog besties, Lauren and I are teaming up to bring you the best kind of confessions, the ones with #hashtags.

So hang out and link up! Oh and go say hi to Lauren why don't ya?

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo

 First a little business. Here’s the scoop:
  • Each Wednesday create a post about what’s going on in your life and #hashtag each item or story. See an example HERE. Be as creative as you want! 
  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag


Alright cool. Let's get on with it.

So, I've started Whole30. I haven't really gone in to details yet of the why and how, etc., I'll get there I promise #justletmegetgoingfirstwillyou

I have to admit I was only half prepared for the prep it would take. There were a LOT of expenses I didn't really think about. And I really need a new spiralizer I decided #buythatformewouldya #coconutaminosprobablywerentnecessary #conconutwhat?

Grocery shopping in a new light was fun though. I mean I like shopping in general, especially for killer deals like the ones I found at Grocery Outlet #shamelessplug #butgooddealsipromise

The first main struggle I have with the program is you aren't supposed to snack. It's not forbidden, but it's not recommended. So, when I started Monday and I felt like I was STARVING all day I was getting really pissed about that. And then I just snacked anyway #ineedtoeatalldaylong #snacksfordays #ifitshealthyitsokright

Second, nothing in the coffee. If you've been around these parts long, you know I'm "new" to the coffee drinking world. I kind of despise the taste in general, but if you put some cream and sugar in it or blend it with ice and chocolate chunks and caramel I can handle it. In fact I've kind of grown to really need that cup each day. But in Whole30 I have to drink it black #soimgoingbacktotea #itsnotworthit #whatCANiaddtoit?

Also, I've found myself slightly obsessed with the book. I decided to order Whole30 and now I practically carry it around with me everywhere #cookbooknerd #probablyshouldreaditificarryitaroundright #theymakeitlooksoeasy

The only official recipe I have tried so far is the home made mayo #stickywhitemess #thatswhatshesaid

I'm looking forward to learning a lot during this process and hopefully shedding a little bit of weight. Mostly I need to kick some addictions I have and feel better #byebyecarbs #byebyesugar #byebyebooze.

What do you have going on this first humpday of August? #holyshititsaugustalready

  1. Haha!!! This is hilarious with the memes, I love it!! Good for you!! I've been wanting to do something similar to Whole30, but to be honest, the whole no cream in your coffee!?!? Eek! Let me know how it goes!!!

  2. You are super brave! I couldn't do the coffee without creamer but I could probably do black tea. I don't know I guess I'm just not ready to give up my carbs and sugar, I think I want to eat healthy but I actually look at it I'm like why am I giving up cake again? Either way I hope it works out for you and I can't wait to read the post on how it's going And the inns and out of it and I might actually pick up the book just to check it out!

  3. I am loving all the memes, they are so accurate. I was doing my coffee without creamer when I was all no dairy. I put in some unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead. It was better than straight up black coffee. I may have to order that Whole 30 book if you approve some of the recipes and stuff.

  4. That Jennifer Lawrence meme is basically me. Food is my life.

  5. Oh man, I am such a snacker, that would be the hardest part for me too! Also the coffee without anything in it, black coffee turns my stomach!

  6. That is weird about not snacking. I thought snacking was important because it improves metabolism?

  7. I can't not snack. I can eat healthy snacks...but not snacking...not gonna work! (Today I brought an apple, grapes, a string cheese, and baby carrots to work. Four snacks.) Also I'd give up coffee too. I can't handle black coffee.

    Good for you for doing this though! I'm sure you'll get some great results!
