  1. #Whole30forthewin

    Today marks day 33 of my Whole 30 journey and I am super excited to share my results. I apologize in advance for the length of this post but happy to share. This is just the beginning of a new & healthier lifestyle. Weight Lost: 13 pounds Waist: down 3” R Bicep: down .25” Chest: down 1.75” Hips: down 2.5” R Thigh: down 2.5” **21 visits to my crossfit gym & several PR’s hit #CrossfitCoMo Secrets to success: · Thoroughly read the Whole 30 materials online and book “It Starts with Food” prior to first day · Carried the Whole 30 approved list while grocery shopping and asked Siri lots of questions while at the store · Did Whole 30 with a friend. Shared recipes, shopping lists, even cooked together · Signed up for Whole 30 daily email – so encouraging and great information at just the right times! · Bought the Whole 30 Cookbook and tried so many wonderful & new recipes! · Crossfit 3-5 times per week and PR’d several Olympic lifts (21 days in April to be exact) · Willpower was spot on; I had committed to the Whole 30 on April 3 and knew I wasn’t budging or being defeated · Went to the movies and brought nuts and club soda/lemon to eat/drink · Always tried to stay prepared with a healthy snack or hard boiled eggs · Drank SO MUCH WATER! · Saved money on not eating out and alcohol! What Could have gone better: · Got out more. I stayed in most weekends and happily grocery shopped and cooked. Went to a concert and drank club soda. Otherwise, I stuck close to home most of the 30 days in order to not be tempted. Now I’m more confident that I can be tempted and still make the right decisions. · Grocery shopping for Whole 30 is a bit expensive but worth it in my opinion What I’ll do in the future, to keep doing better: · Purchase the book “Food Freedom Forever” · Shop at the Columbia Farmers Market · Reintroduce foods as prescribed by the program Continue with the healthy eating & really ask myself if I want the processed food or not (this is probably mainly in the area of wine, I'm a wine lover, but don't need to drink just because it's Friday, or because it's sunny outside, etc. etc. What feels great: · Clothes fit so much better · Sleeping sound and getting 8 plus hours even on weekends · Skin is clear and soft · More energy and have PR’d several lifts at Crossfit this past month · The food tastes so much better. I truly enjoy finding new compliant recipes and experimenting Thank you Melissa and Dallas for sharing your knowledge with the world! I'm hooked!
