Hi ya'll I'm starting round 2 on whole 30.. but making it into a whole 60. I'm a 37yr old gal, wife, mom of 2 (12 and 10 yrs old), daughter, sister, friend, I work 8 hour days five days a week and was (and still am) in the habit of putting everyone else first. I'm fine with cooking something else for everyone else if need be, but the fam is all in most of the time because the food is fantastic and no one is starving (the kids also eat whatever they feel like). My dr. actually recommeded Whole30 'diet' to help my body work through inflammation and ailments. It rocked my world during the first time round, was a whole lot easier than I thought it would or could be and surprisingly I craved the strangest foods, until I figured out that it was my sugerdevil trying to find a way to get some sugar (I craved a hotdog with ketchup.. When I finally ate a hotdog after the W30 it turns out all I wanted was the ketchup!). I won't lie and say it was the easiest ride, but mostly it was, and I was on such a roll and feeling so fab that when the 30 days were up.. I just added 3 days to it because I felt like it. After the W30 I was a poster gal for what it does for you, to just take care of yourself a little bit. Then came summer vacay, driving cross country and eating whatever whenever - what a sucky idea.. it just sounded soooo good to be able to roll through a drive thru, order in chinese, or just eat popcorn for dinner.. I felt great for a few days but then sluggish again and the inflammation is back - so food actually works for me! So.. without much planning I started W60 this morning at 7 o'clock. Scrambled eggs fried with a small amount of coconut oil and 2 slices of bacon. Lunchtime rolled around and the galley at work was not working for me so I ventured out to a salad bar, making my own salad with garlic chicken (oven baked - no oils), an egg, peppers, red onion and boiled chilled sweet potatoe and a dressing made with evoo and mango. As far as I know, everything is a-ok.. Right? So. Onwards! Anyone want to join me? GEva.
