life love laughter Posted December 30, 2015 Share Posted December 30, 2015 Welcome! Happy to have you here, and thanks, for taking the time to visit my log! BUT... in all seriousness, I hope not to bore other folks with my daily ramblings. This is just a place for me to collect my thoughts, and mark some milestones along the way so I don't forget to acknowledge them. WHOLE30 #1 - START DATE: 01/01/16 DAY 0: I'm about to embark on my first-ever Whole30 (yay!!!... I think - I hope - I pray!) on January 1, 2016! WHY I'M DOING THIS: I have packed on almost 40 #'s in 2.5 years. That stings. A lot. I've been strength-training with a personal trainer in a gym 2 days a week since January, 2015. This is good for muscle development, but not loosing weight. I've actually gained weight and gone up a size, or 2. Adding cardio would help, but the diet is the bigger issue at large (all puns intended). WHY I CHOSE THE WHOLE30: My introduction to the Whole30 came via this article on the inertia.com back in May. I was intrigued, overwhelmed and ultimately passed because I wasn't ready at that time to give up alcohol for 30 days. (I'm actually embarrassed to admit that, cause it doesn't seem like a big deal now.) But I came back to it, and made the commitment because: Their tough-love approach to coffee and pancakes. (It's like I wrote those sections myself! Mirrors my opinions.) I agree with the science behind the program. I like the food. It offers the support I need. I'm curious to discover any food allergies I may have, and not be aware of. And I truly believe I will loose some weight in the process, and hope to make this a new lifestyle habit that will help keep my weight in-check going forward. TODAY'S MILESTONE'S: I'm half-way through the Whole30 book after finishing It Starts With Food yesterday. Started using the forum! Kick-starting the Whole30 with some cleaner food choices, after reading how what you choose to eat (or binge on) leading up to your Whole30 will have a greater impact on the way you feel the first few days. Wanted the Thai Chicken Wrap from World Wrapps for lunch, but chose Salmon, Beef (no sauce) and veggies instead! *This is not Whole30 food - just a better option, more aligned with the program before I start it! I am excited, and nervous for the days to come, but I am confident in myself, and know I WILL DO THIS! To our health! ~Lisa Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
