    BetterEveryDay got a reaction from Blueautumn in BED's Whole30 Log <3   
    Yippee! I did it! I don't feel like recording a day by day for the rest, but in a nutshell, it wasn't too difficult and I felt, for the most part, really good for the remainder. I did have a migraine for the final few days, which was a bummer. I did experience many NSVs as a result of this - my skin cleared up and has looked fantastic; I've hardly been bloated at all; sugar cravings completely gone! No longer feeling like a slave to the pantry (especially at night); I look leaner and more toned; greatly improved digestion; my mood has been so stable and I find myself laughing more (to myself sometimes, which is not something I would typically do); most of all - sleep! I've been falling asleep so easily, sleeping deeply, and naturally waking at an early hour. I lost 7 pounds (and believe me - I at a LOT and never restricted myself in terms of how much I ate, except for nuts/nut butter) - and really this is a good amount on me because I'm a relatively small person. This has been a great experience and I plan to do it at least once a year going forward.
    Now for reintro! So far I reintroduced alcohol (but barely). I nursed a patron and water yesterday during the day and nursed a red wine at night, but didn't finish even half of either. I just didn't want to. But I was happy to partake by just holding them and having tiny sips here and there. I think this week at some point I will do legumes.

    Day 1 in the books! I had a matcha-collagen peptides latte in the morning. Late breakfast was a big salad with chicken, for lunch chicken-avocado burger and collard greens in ghee, and for dinner chicken meatballs with veggies, olives, marinara sauce (a day of chicken...we had chicken that was expiring, what can i say! lol). I was craving something sweet in the afternoon but the feeling passed and other than that, today really wasn't difficult. Here is hoping it stays that way!

    Whole 30 starts tomorrow! I did the Whole30 (well, more like a Whole 21 or so, really) last year before my wedding and experienced some wonderful results - better sleep, better energy, etc. I wasn't able to do a thorough reintroduction, though, due to my (less than) Whole30 ending right as I was leaving for my destination wedding trip (basically exactly what Melissa says *not* to do!). Since that time, while I have mostly healthy eating habits, my sugar dragon has kicked up and I find myself going crazy (especially at night) on certain foods (hello, nuts!). I'm really excited to use this period at home as an opportunity to dial in my health and do the Whole30 the right way this time around! Excited to connect with everyone else doing the same.
