30B430: Another one bites the dust

Wednesday, August 12, 2015


Today is Day 31 of my Whole30.

What does that mean?

For the last 30 days I've had no: grains, legumes, sugars (artificial or natural, like honey),

For the last 30 days I haven't: stepped on a scale (except for last night), counted my calories, or felt deprived.

In the last 30 days I have: felt like my skin was clearer, gained confidence, and felt better about myself.
In the last 30 days I've had physical achievements: ran my first ever mile, dropped a size in jeans, and lost about 16 lbs.

Was it hard?

Yes.

But once I decided to really really really do it, it wasn't terrible. There were definitely rough days: the first week when I didn't have power for 3 days, Day 18 was the simply the worst. The night before vacation feeling very overwhelmed about working all day Friday, driving Friday night and all day Saturday, and then trying to eat clean outside of my kitchen.

BUT I MADE IT!

And now I have no excuses. I know I can do it. I actually DID it. Through travel and clinicals and finals and a date and no power, I did it.

I'm planning to continue eating mostly paleo...except for Saturday when I'm having a bagel with Brittany.
