Whole30 Week 1 in Review: Ready, Set, GO!

Posted on

I’ve tracked everything I could think of for my first week of Whole30, and I’ve broken out day by day how I felt, what I ate, and what exercise I did–and the dreams I had about food.  If you’re considering doing a Whole30, this is what the first week was like for me, what I ate, and how many calories I consumed.  I’m already feeling better!

In order to get things done, you need to have a plan.  I don’t look at these as resolutions, but more as a blueprint of tasks I need to do to get what I want.  Most of these are fitness and wellness related, but I’m also sharing my professional and financial goals as well.

Starting My Whole30 Journey: Preparation Stage

Posted on

I honestly don’t know if I’ll be able to complete Whole30, but I’m going to try, starting on January 2.  I tried to do paleo last year, and I lasted three and a half days–not a great record.  Every year, my best friends do a January cleanse of either paleo or Whole30, and every year I thought they were crazy and that there would be no way I would join.  This year, however, I’m going to give it a shot.  To do that, I have needed to prepare myself with strategies to overcome the challenges I know lay ahead.  This is how I’m preparing for Whole30, from a complete beginner.

Why now?  I’m sick of feeling like shit.
