  2. @rollyourownway Thanks! I’m glad you find some inspiration in my posts! And I wish you the very best on your upcoming Whole30! So I wear a Garmin Fenix 5s all the time. I purchased it to track my outdoor workouts but it also tracks my heart rate throughout the day and my sleep. So I get my sleep metrics from my Garmin. I think there are likely cheaper models that will track a lot of the same information! Anyway, best wishes and happy holidays!

I actually made it all the way through a backpacking trip eating totally, 100% Whole30. But, after the long hike out, and in the middle of the multi-hour drive home, I found myself unprepared with anything to eat that sounded even remotely appetizing after a huge hike. And I wanted a Big Mac. And I was on Day 27 and isn't that the same thing anyway? So I ate a Big Mac. Honestly, it didn't even taste that good. And I never
