ArcheoGator Posted January 1, 2014 Share Posted January 1, 2014 I rode my bicycle and rode it well. I rode it for a bit over 45 days. My first Whole30 was complete, and I just kept going. Then, my alcoholic buddy that I mentioned in previous posts offered me that one beer. I figured it was time to loosen up a bit. That day I had two. A week later I had six. Another week, and I had sixer's twice a week. Then burgers, then gyros, then Chinese buffets. It did not take long for this to all affect my glucose levels. It then did not take long for my glucose levels to affect my energy. Next returned about eight pounds of the 15 I lost. I lurked on the forums for a bit, not wanting to post. I was so excited after my Whole30. It was the first thing in so long that I set a goal for and accomplished. I was happy about the results and felt like a new person. However, I did not want to come back to post because I was confused why I came so far only to turn around again. I know I am not the first, but it just hurt on a personal level. I am coming back to this forum because this place is the biggest thing that worked. People took their time to give support, and I know that time is a very valuable gift. For all of December, I kept waking up, saying this would be my second Whole30. Then, I would just decide to put sugar in my coffee and figure the next day would be better. I spent December wondering what was going wrong. Like many, I have one messed up relationship with food and alcohol. The past couple days I spent getting the right foods in the house. I will again be the only one in the home doing this, so there are many non-compliant foods that will remain. However, I have the advantage now of having completed one Whole30 and am familiar with how my body and mind will react. So, I now embark on a Whole100 in hopes of getting my body cleaned up and making paleo more of a lifestyle rather than a 30 day challenge. My overall goals for 100 days: Choose the proper foods that give me stable glucose levels throughout the day Redesign our family budget to build savings and pay off debt Work on my home improvement list that I have neglected (as far as finances will allow) Spend time on these forums to lend support to others that may have a hard time January 1 shall arrive here soon.
