    Hi Kirbz!  I just sent this to Emma in Your Post Whole30 Log, but since you asked...!  BTW, my day 30 was Sept. 9.
    My NSV of the day - Due to busy schedules, we moved the celebration of my daughter's birthday up to last night.  I made her favorite strawberry cake from my grandmother's old fashioned recipe, meaning it is dense and heavy and moist and delicious, but not too pretty to look at.  And I DID NOT HAVE A SLICE!  But to be fully honest, I did lick my fingers after slicing and serving others.  (They are my family, they don't care...  )  I made myself some sliced fresh strawberries and coconut milk, which was sufficient after the little tastes I got from the crumbs.  I did not feel sad, I did not feel left out, I did not feel any enormous urges and I left the entire remainder of the cake at her house for her to share as she cares to!
    Thank you Whole30!!  I feel so free!!

    I wanted to take a moment to share a huge NSV! I'm an aspiring alpine climber, but not particularly fit, strong, or skilled. I'm also overweight. Just a few pounds ago and I was technically in the obese category based on BMI. 
    I had a big climb planned for Monday, which was Day 8 of my Whole30 journey. This was going to be my longest climb with the most elevation gain (10+ pitches with over 2,000 feet of climbing and topping out at 10,306 feet). I had done a different climb a few weeks prior and it was so, so hard. I almost couldn't finish. Despite all the training and effort I had put into it. It was actually that climb that inspired  me to start Whole30. Because I had been doing everything right except nutrition. Which finally convinced me that I can't be the kind of fit I want to be without that part. Enter Whole30.
    But this one was great!  I felt strong. I never doubted I could finish it. I wasn't completely and utterly exhausted on the hike out. It was a total and complete joy! 
    I don’t know if my hard work is finally paying off, if I’m turning the corner toward Tiger Blood, or if I just fueled right, but I’m so, so happy to finally see changes happening in the mountains.  
    Here's a photo of me at the top of Tenaya Peak in Yosemite National Park!

    Hello Everyone!
    I'm Kristen, and I am starting my third attempt at the Whole30. I struggled the past two times and I am hoping to be successful at this round. I have definitely planned more this time around. I already know that I have some dietary sensitivities, but I have let my diet slide a lot since having my two children. My goal this time around is to really be able to see what does, in fact, bother my system and that I have a healthier view of food and eating afterwards. I wish you all the best of luck on your Whole30 journeys.
