Numbering days ... well, I want to say it's been a "trigger" for me in the past. But I'm not sure if that's the right word.
I said I would never try to do another Whole 30 for a variety of reasons, and this is one of them: Mentally, something happens to people (SOME people) once they've reached that goal. They can be strong, sensible people, and have the best of intentions ~ "why, yes, of course I'm going to do a slow and carefully planned out reintroduction" ~ and still, on Day 31+ ... somehow find themselves sitting on the couch after eating ________ thinking, "what the hell just happened?"
BUT, sometimes our bodies really do need a complete reset. And Whole 30 is the best there is, IMO. It's why I've been coming/going for the past 6 years.
So ... with that said, I'm reluctantly saying that "Day 1" yesterday was a success.
