Ahavah Posted October 10, 2014 Share Posted October 10, 2014 I start my 2nd Whole30 tomorrow, and I am so excited! I would love some buddies this round! I think I'm better prepared this time, now knowing exactly how many veggies I will be plowing through, and my fridge is full to bursting. I even scored some local buffalo, grass fed beef, and ground lamb to play with. My 9 yo has decided to join me this time and will attempt her own Whole15 (stopping in time for Halloween). We've been having sugar issues with my girls, so I'm extra excited about having her buddy with me. I hope to get the whole family eating a lot more healthily with us. I mostly lived off Whole30 recipes I found online last time, and this time I plan to play around and make some of my own recipes. The first one was for learning, and now this one is for fun! I also didn't really exercise the first time around, excepting a few walks on pretty days. I was only allowed to walk due to blood pressure issues, but I've since been cleared for 'real' exercise, so I plan to do that this time around. Which means extra meals, I know, so I'll be playing with work-out foods. Would love any tips for that! For the record, my first Whole30 this summer saw: * 28 pounds lost (only 4 gained back after quitting - this broke a 3 yr plateau!) * Completely off blood pressure & thyroid meds * Was sleeping better & had more energy * Clearer skin/less acne * Stomach bloat &/or fat reduction was DRASTIC. My tummy is my problem area. I looked hot! Gotta celebrate that. * And, of course, a better understanding of nutrition and how my body responds to certain foods. Let me know if you want to buddy up! I'm going to try to post pics of my meals on facebook to keep me accountable, so PM me if you want to be friends (or look for me in the Whole30 Challenge & Whole30 Recipe Exchange groups).
