  1. I work nights as an RN and have had a few night shifts since starting Jan 01.... Man oh man was it challenging.. probably the most challenging times fighting cravings for me so far! I felt soooo good leaving work though knowing I hadn't given in to my cravings, gave me more energy almost! Try to fight for that feeling! its a good one. Then treat yourself to a really yummy breakfast at home!

    Who's starting 1/1?

    Happy day 2! Felt good this morning but slowly developed a brain fog with headache and ++ fatigue.... drank a black coffee, which seemed to help only slightly. I think my body is going into sugar withdrawal from all those holiday sweets now! Anyone else feeling this way? Must keep going!

    Hi everyone! My name is Willa and I plan on starting Whole30 tomorrow, January 1st! This will be my second full whole30 (last one completed in may 2018), with several attempted but failed ones before! I just graduated university and have recently started working as a nurse, causing disruption in what was once healthy eating habits. With my new schedule of 12 hour day/night shifts, I have been having a really hard time finding my rhythm and keeping my motivation to eat health/exercise. I use to go to the gym 5-6 x per week but have only been going consistently 2-3x per week since starting my new job. Each day I find myself bingeing and using the "I'll start tomorrow, what is one more cookie in the grand scheme of things, etc" excuse. I'm really hoping this whole 30 will kickstart my motivation and allow me to get back a healthier relationship with food and my body. I definitely notice feeling happier and more confident when the foods I put in my body and healthy and nourishing. Im also looking forward to leaving that sugar induced fatigue behind me and improving my overall energy levels! I have gone a little wild on the treats this holiday season.... I am looking forward to keeping in touch with you all over the next month and finding support/recipe motivation when the days start getting tough!
