Well, it is day 8 and I feel absolutely great! Energy level is consistently high and my digestive "issues" are dramatically better. The headaches I had days 1-4 are completely gone, and I am now waking up fully rested and full of energy. I am really looking forward to see how much better I will feel over the next 22 days! I hope everyone else is hanging in there and staying 100% compliant with the Whole 30 plan. I must say, I don't know if I have EVER not eaten any sugar for 8 days in my entire life...so this is a really big deal for me.
Last night my fiancé and her kids came home with burgers (on buns), breaded chicken strips, french fries, and Kona pie for desert from a local restaurant. Fortunately for me, I had already eaten a wonderful Whole30 complaint meal consisting of fajita chicken (with fajita seasoning I made based on a recipe found on this site) with peppers and homemade guacamole. I just politely left the room while they were having their unhealthy food "orgy" and felt absolutely great about it!
Way to go everybody...we can do this!
