WholeBunchOJunk Posted March 21, 2014 Share Posted March 21, 2014 I was talking to a friend of mine this week who has been feeling pretty icky lately--not really sick, but maybe feeling like she may have a food allergy, lack of energy, etc.--and so mentioned that she should check out Whole30. I successfully completed my first Whole30 last August, but since then have completely fallen into really bad habits. My conversation with my friend kept rattling the little pieces of my brain that know I should ALSO be doing that, so yesterday afternoon just decided to go for it. I've printed off my shopping lists, made a menu for the coming week and tonight will locate my copy of the book which is SOMEPLACE in my wreck of a house. Tomorrow will be grocery shopping, then Sunday will be my official start day, though I may have enough to actually start tomorrow. I definitely don't have enough stuff for the whole day, but I just need to get through breakfast before shopping, then the rest of the day I'll have plenty of stuff. Not much has changed for me since last year. I let stress get the better of my eating and I'm paying for that with a LOT of excess weight, achy joints, lack of energy, etc. Some of the things I hope will improve (not in any specific order): 1. Sleep patterns 2. Energy levels 3. Motivation 4. Sense of well-being 5. Clothing fitting better 6. Loss of weight 7. Reduce inflammation 8. Better fitness (which has deteriorated greatly in the last couple of years) 9. Learn more about why I eat things and when; discover what triggers certain behaviors 10. Reduce joint pain I'll add more to that list if I think of anything else. Edited to add medical issues: As background, some of my other medical issues: 1. Menopause (definitely in menopause) 2. Gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying) -- raw fruits and veggies are contraindicated for this, so may have to do adjustments. 3. Celiac Disease 4. Mild dairy "allergy" (gives me sinus infections if I eat too much) 5. History of pre-cancerous growth at the bile/pancreatic duct opening 6. Allergies....all kinds 2014 Reintroduction log: http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/19318-wholebunchojunks-post-whole60-log/ My original log: http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/12365-wholebunchojunks-log/ My re-intro log: http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/13225-wholebunchojunk-reintro-log/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
