Whole30 (November/December 2013)

I did the whole30!
Well, technically I did a whole26 but I digress....
I didn't talk about it much so I wouldn't put too much pressure on myself or self Sabatage, I did blog about it though. They are all unpublished blog entries but blogs nonetheless. They would be about the most boring blogs you have ever read in your life and I'm not about to subject you to that. 
A few things I learned were 1. How much I eat when I'm not hungry. I thought I was hungry.
2. I eat emotionally way more than I thought. 3. I learned how to up together my meals
So that my body functioned well even without all the unhealthy fillersWe put in our  daily diets.  4. The amount of ailments and brain a function problems I have that are majorly effected if not caused by nutrition or lack thereof is insurmountable.
I will be doing another whole30 in January. I would never force anyone to eat a certain way and I especially wouldn't push something so intense on anyone who isn't ready but I have to throw it out there so that people can have the opportunity to join a community of support on this.
I already did a whole 30. (26). Very recently. So why am I doing another one? Well I jumped off the bandwagon at day 26 because it was my husbands birthday and we were going to a Christmas party that night. Truth be told, I had the capability to be completely compliant with the whole30 that day and the Christmas party had plenty of options for me to stay on track but I had already solidified my decision earlier in the day with some dairy free chocolate. I regret it. More than that though, the whole 30 is about cutting out all these things for 30 days then reintroducing what you want slowly after those 30 days are over. I did not do that. I binged.  I got sick. And I'm still in a vicious sugar cycle. I want to be free of the sugar demons so I want to reset my body again. I thrived on the program and I believe I just needed to go longer than the 30 days. I'm waiting until January so I'm not stressing over the holidays and because the whole9 website does one of its quarterly community whole30s starting January 1st. I highly suggest getting the book "it starts with food" and I am getting the whole30 daily this time around. Hope to see you around. I will also be working on a social media break and even a fitness challenge to stay on track. The holidays can be a really hard time in so many ways on a lot of people and I believe we should be there for each other. Regardless of what you decide I pray you believe in yourself and do what is best for yourself. I know taking the first step is always the hardest.

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum.
