jomillie Posted March 1, 2016 Share Posted March 1, 2016 Day 0! (well technically the early morning hours of Day 1) I'm trying Whole30 because I have a terrible relationship with food. Food, especially sugary, fatty, salty foods are my go to stress reliever. Over the last 5 years I have gained 60lbs due to poor eating and exercising habits. I have no energy and often feel self conscious about my weight and choices. I'm taking back control! In addition to being more aware of my food choices, during Whole30 I want to practice meal planning so healthy eating becomes part of my routine (plan on Sunday; shop on Monday), improve my cooking skills (try 10 new recipes) and get more use out of the beautiful cooking tools that collecting dust in my kitchen. I anticipate the most challenging food situations to be after long workdays and during social gatherings. I shared my goals with my mom and three friends. My mom was inspired to order the book for herself and will be joining me on this journey! And my friends have made plans to have Whole30 compliant dinners at least once a week with me. Today I did my meal planning, grocery shopping and cooking for the first few days. Even though it literally took all evening, the fridge and pantry are brimming with delicious, whole foods and the few recipes I prepared tonight have put me at ease about the rest of the program. All the dishes were easy to make and taste fantastic. I couldn't be more excited about the next 30 days and beyond!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
