SconnieGirl Posted January 5, 2016 Share Posted January 5, 2016 I guess I'll log this post so that when I feel the need to post an update, I have somewhere to go. :-) This is my first Whole 30. I learned about it during winter break and read "It Starts with Food" in three days. I was completely fascinated by it! A friend of mine said she was going to commit 1/4/16 so I said I'd do it too. I spent so many hours during my time off of work reading the cookbook and the awesome logs on this website - the resources and people out here are FANTASTIC! Even my son and husband want to try it out. I ended up starting two days early on 1/2. So now I guess I'm day four. Things are going fine. Yesterday afternoon I was very tired but resisted the urge to drink a diet coke like I usually do. (Dang the office routines we can get ourselves into!) I made it through. It was interesting what evolved .... my friend who started the program yesterday said that she was going to have a snack of a banana and almond butter. But sadly, my lunch box at work was empty by that time. I was famished and sluggish and starting to feel like the run I wanted to take last night wasn't going to happen. Well, I opted instead to stop at a whole foods store on the way home to get a banana and almond butter and if that wasn't the best healthy snack I've had lately, well tell me of other ideas! I was still a bit hungry when I got home so had a small portion of chicken and then BAM just like that I was fine. An hour later I got a decent run in and I felt fantastic. So far I'm very encouraged by the W30....but I also realize there are likely some tougher days ahead! Cheers to all of us wanting to improve our health, mind and spirit! Food can affect our mentality in awful ways....but also in really good ways. It feels good to make good decisions, doesn't it?! That's what we've got to do. As the saying goes - You are what you eat!
