Whole30 Results & Going Forward

I am excited to share what changes I've noticed from the Whole30, but most importantly, what I've learned about myself and my body-- for a number of reasons. For one, maybe it can inspire someone to tackle a Whole30 who has had similar issues (or maybe completely different ones). Maybe sharing my results can be a lightbulb for those who have done the Whole30 and felt they didn't get anything out of it-- maybe they will see how measure success, and see that they too have had success.

Days 23-29: Almost done!

Some "historical blizzard" we got. I woke up around 4AM and checked outside to see no snow. When I finally woke up around 7:30AM, I thought it was a dream. But nope, we got maybe 4 inches of the forecasted 1-2 feet.

Days 18-22: Monotony or routine?

After the wrath of the cold that hit me like a ton of bricks, I finally started feeling better. I honestly only felt "sick" for one day, while the following days were just the annoying symptoms like sinus congestion and runny nose.

When your body has a constant supply of abundant nutrients--minus the inflammatory stuff-- there is no doubt that it is better equipped to deal with sickness!

Day 16-17: What do you do when you get sick during your Whole30?

Day 16 is when the "tiger blood" is supposed to kick in. I admit, I've been feeling pretty damn good, and feeling like I've gotten past the biggest challenges of these 30 days- all day I had tons of energy and I felt really strong during my workout... but I knew I was getting sick. By the time I got home around 8PM, I had no energy to cook, and luckily didn't need to!

1/4 of the way done! That went fast... or did it? Week 1 Recap

Week 1 of the Whole30 has come and gone. Overall, I would say it's been a positive experience-- but not without its challenges (and cravings)! Fortunately, it means I am 1/4 of the way done with this 30 day journey, but as time goes on, I am seeing I may need to take a little more than 30 days to do what I need to do! However, I truly am seeing how certain "small" things I let slip over the past year or so, actually aren't very small at all.
