The WHOLE30 — Really, the WHOLE 30!!

31 May

The

Tomorrow, my plan is to start a Whole30 challenge. And I’ll say right here, tomorrow I will be at a beach party with free flowing beer and hotdogs…so, there is a *slight* chance I won’t actually go Whole30 on June 1!  I’m on “vacation” at my dad’s until really late at night on June 5 so my whole 30 will likely not start in earnest until June 6. I have plenty of appropriate food to last me until I can shop the afternoon of June 6 after work! But, even on vacation I am going to do my best to make the better choices…Like, I don’t HAVE to have a bun with a burger – and more lettuce and tomato is good!

You might be asking yourself, “What is the Whole30?” Well, it’s a way to reset all that stuff inside that might be clogged up and need some fixin’! From the Website (http://www.whole9life.com), the Whole30 is “a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, calm systemic inflammation and put an end to unhealthy cravings, habits, and relationships with food”.

And, to be perfectly honest, I have an amazingly unhealthy relationship with food so my goal for this challenge is to get a grip on this! From my research, I’m thinking that the biggest thing that I’ll be “giving up” is dairy. I love my milk and I love my yogurt and really? You’re telling me no cheese for a MONTH??!! Okay, and wine. No wine for a month. Of course there’s also no wheat (or any grain really!), no sugar and no “processed” foods. But I’m not supposed to be eating a lot of that anyway – this should help break my carb-binging cycles and hopefully reduce my addiction to sugars.

Luckily, thanks to a fellow Sweat Pink Ambassador,  I’ll have tons of support. And, we’ll all be sharing information, stories, and advice along the way! Every Tuesday I’ll have some great links – they’ll make you laugh, they’ll make you cry, they’ll change your world! Well, maybe not that dramatic, but they will enlighten you at least a little.

And, even though today is NOT Tuesday you’re gonna get a little somethin’ extra!  Let’s call it a Friday Freebie! Mainly cause I’m a giver and not at all because I’ve put off writing this post for too long 🙂
