Too busy. No time to eat. Snack. Work. Snack. Work… That’s the hamster wheel.
It’s time to make a change.
I came across Whole30, a 30-day challenge that helps cleanse your body from all the things we shouldn’t be eating in the first place. It’s supposed to make you feel energized, lose weight and start a healthier lifestyle. Sure, that’s what all diets say. I never try them because I don’t think it’s feasible for me to never have another piece of chocolate but this one looks like it’ll be worth the effort.
Today is Day 2.
I thought I’d share my initial thoughts and then share the recap after the (hopefully) successful 30 days.
- No grains – Not that big of a deal because I have potatoes to rely on.
- No preservatives – That was easy.
- No dairy (except eggs) – I love cheese. So far, I don’t miss it but I know I will soon.
- No added sugar – This has been the hardest. Black coffee is definitely an acquired taste. Chocolate and chocolate chip cookies are my weakness. I’ve already had to fight the cravings.
I went out to eat yesterday and it was easy to order, much better than I thought! Overall, I’m still pretty committed and hopeful things will get easier.
