beachchica Posted April 29, 2015 Share Posted April 29, 2015 I'm excited and a little scared that I've decided to embark on a Whole90 starting tomorrow, April 30. At first, I thought I'd start Friday, May 1. But then I realized I didn't want to spend one more day feeling out of control or waiting to improve my health. I've done a couple Whole30s and had great results, both scale- and non-scale victories. I'm at a point now where I'm getting frustrated with bad habits that continue to sneak back in, like snacking on fruit-and-nut bars and eating after dinner. These types of habits are leaving me at least 20 lbs over an ideal body composition for me. And I'm not talking about looking good in a bikini. This is more of a I want to wear a one piece at the beach and not be embarrassed. More than that, it's wanting to look as fit as I am. I ran 11 miles the other day. And the weekend before, I ran 10. I'm training for a half-marathon (my third, but first since having 2 kids), and it's helped me realize how fit and strong my body is, even with extra weight. The main motivation for doing a Whole90 is to tackle my psoriasis symptoms that make running and being a mom to 2 kids under 3 a little painful at times. I want to eliminate trigger foods and calm my immune system down. And losing 15 to 20 pounds would be nice too! So I'll try to post something in here every day or two, even if just a recap of what I ate or how I'm feeling. I don't expect anyone else to read this or comment on it, but if it helps you in your journey, or you have support to offer, please do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
