    Thank you so much...everything you said makes so much sense and I had never even thought of things like what you said about a vacation! I will definitely look into the book! Good luck with your marathon.

    My big Fear

    Hi everyone! I started my Whole 30 on May 11 and am on day 11 and I am scared! I am scared because so far I am feeling great, and I am afraid of what will happen when this is over. I am a 40 year old who has Hashimotos and last year decided to run 2 marathons. Well that contributed to a lot of weight gain, GI distress, and general feeling like crap. Before starting my training I ate pretty clean but because of the increase in carbs my diet got all out of wack. I am set to run the Chicago marathon this October and thought the whole 30 might help for a reset to figure out where my diet is having issues. Well, other than a headache that lasted a few days and feeling like I was running to the bathroom nonstop during the first week I feel as though I must be doing something wrong. I say that because this is not as difficult as I expected, and other than having a hard time with my blood sugar on a few runs (which I now keep dates on hand for emergencies), my energy levels are amazing. I was under the impression running would be too hard...maybe it will get harder but I feel like as long as I do my pre and post workout meals I am good. So my fear is this. What about when this is done, yes I am afraid I will go back to my old ways, but I am more afraid to have anything I am not having now. I know I have heard this is not meant to be a long time diet, but I am afraid that Ill have something and be right back where I was. Has anyone else felt this way?
