Christina Savage Posted October 9, 2012 Share Posted October 9, 2012 Hi everyone - I love the idea of having somewhere to share each portion of this month and reading others whole30 challange! Briefly - Im 32, live in Maryland, a runner, mom of a 6 year old and 10 month old, married to a police officer and work full time as a nurse practitioner in a community medical/surgical intensive care unit. Needless to say Im BUSY. I started paleo after reading "It starts with food" about 2 months ago and for 3 weeks I felt freaking awesome (after that first horrible week), then we went away and I feel off plan and its just so so so easy to go back to eating that older way. Then I kept trying to restart and would do great until the evening then I would binge on any and everything wheat. I just got back from a medical conference in Canada and ate myself through every ethnic food offering they had. I came home feeling like crap. Two days ago I decided I was going to reestablish healthy habits by doing the whole30. I started yesterday and did GREAT until the evening and then I had 2 diet sodas and said screw it and had some honey and some artificial sweetener. Today I had a screw it attitude and brought Halloween candy into the house... what the hell was I thinking!?! So I decided to tell EVERYONE Im starting RIGHT NOW. But my first official day will be tomorrow for writing purposes. I KNOW how much better I will feel, I know that once you get passed that initial week or two that the cravings go away and that my energy will go through the roof...then why is it so freaking hard?!?
