GinnyR Posted July 11, 2015 Share Posted July 11, 2015 Whole30 T - 9 days While reading the first couple chapters of Whole30 so many things resonated with me. I am currently starting my second week of no bread, cereal, pasta, or processed carbs but I'm discovering that I am compensating with overindulging in other carbs - mostly rice and corn/popcorn but also ice cream. I was beginning to suspect that I wasn't getting to the root of the problem when I read about Whole30 and the lightbulb went off. I need to stop dipping my toe into the healthy end of the pool and just dive in. I've already bought a rice-centric week of food, and next weekend I am going to visit a friend. The timing is best for me to start on Monday July 20th. Thirty days after that will be August 18th, which will be 20 days before I run a half-marathon. This is my husband's and my annual end-of-summer beach celebration and the plan is for me to get into the post Whole30 groove before I put myself to the test like that. I will spend parts of the next 9 days getting ready by reviewing/purging my pantry and letting my family know what I am embarking on. They are overall very supportive and I expect nothing different with this. They stuck by me when, on a lark of "what would it be like to ...?" I stopped drinking alcohol for a year! I chronicled that here if you're interested in reading about how that went. http://ginnyreese.blogspot.com/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
