More than any other physical, mental, or emotional change, this program
has given me SELF-CONFIDENCE! I trust myself more each day to choose
what is BEST for me [and my family]; what foods will fuel my mind and
body. That regularly exercising is good for my soul. Every day I’m
feeling healthier and stronger. My mind is clearer and I’m happy! My one little word for 2014 is SELF-DISCIPLINE and completing Whole30 has taken a
dedication that leaves me feeling so proud of this accomplishment. I
know that there is still so much work to do and I’m excited to see where
this journey leads. As most of you know, I’ll be starting my second
round of W30 on Mon. June 2nd. #MyJuneWhole30
The numbers: I lost just over 9 lbs. and 5.5 all-over inches between Whole30 + regular exercise.”
unmotivated, discouraged, and low energy. I did not feel like this last
hormones aren’t right. I haven’t been working out as much and it’s all affecting
me. I even took a pregnancy test (negative); that’s how out of it I feel. This round has also brought up some weird feelings about food.
I’ve been equating a decision about what I eat [by sticking to Whole30 or not] to success vs. failure and that
it somehow makes me a “bad person” to want an unhealthy meal every now
and again. I don’t want to feel/think that way. It’s all about balance! For me, this journey is about becoming healthy and fit. That means my entire being. One of my traps in life is anxiety and I want to avoid going down that route. Part of my anxiety came from letting other people down. I know that my story has inspired so many of you and I don’t want you to be discouraged. When I finally made the decision to end my round of Whole30, I instantly felt relief. I’m not sad. I don’t feel like I failed or quit. This was an educated decision that I made and the right one for ME. My plan is adopt more of a Paleo/clean eating lifestyle and do Whole30 again from time to time to “reset”. In fact, I’m already thinking September for my next round.
