Jojo Posted November 17, 2013 Share Posted November 17, 2013 Hello! My name is Joanna, and I have seen the incredible impact Whole30 can make on one's life. I started my first Whole30 about a year ago, and it without a doubt, brought about powerful changes in my overall well being. I have since completed 2 more rounds, and my body and brain have responded quite well! I honestly think it leads me towards my happiest version of myself as cheesy as that sounds. Gluten's impact on my body causes embarrassing cystic acne, brain fog, bloat, slight depression and a whole slew of excuses that drag me down... I've been making excuses since the start of the school year that have lead me down the wrong path and further and further from the joy that felt during my Whole30s. I remember those great daily emails that emphasize START NOW. So here I am, ready to do this. I will heal my gut and my confidence that I CAN do this again. I will make choices that empower me rather than cut myself down. I just cooked up an awesome batch of tortilla-less chicken soup. http://paleocomfortfoods.com/recipes/its-almost-summer-that-means-soup-right/ I know that my first meal wasn't on the template, so I am planning out dinner as I type. Kale Salad with compliant mustard/apple cider vinegarette Curry Cauliflower Puree with Shredded Chicken Avocado on the side When I am not doing Whole30s, I eat ice cream EVERY night. I eat very healthy throughout the day, but in some ways it is my self sabotage. I have even started regularly attending yoga barre classes which are phenomenal workouts.... yet I still grab the ice cream. So STARTING NOW: NO ICE CREAM for 30 days seems like my #1 goal. I bought frozen blueberries that I will eat with dinner. I will break my dessert fetish this Whole30....can't wait. hahah Any advice on this area would be appreciated.
