VickiJane Posted January 11, 2017 Share Posted January 11, 2017 Good morning! I am posting here to help with accountability. I am hoping if I tell this to the "world" (LOL) that I'll not stray from the plan. I am doing the Whole30 for several reasons. One a few years back I was always struggling with IBS, bloating, lethargy and so on, at that time I went to a nutritionist that I said saved my life, as at the time she did. She put me on an elimination diet of sorts, and I felt so much better I stuck with it for about a year. Not as strictly after the initial 14 days, but close. I just got bored with the same thing every day in and day out...the next thing the holidays came around and I didn't stick to plan. I enjoyed everything. I do mean everything...wine, champagne, chocolate, cakes, all the foods and trimmings. I thought I will get back on plan after the holidays. Will I tried to follow the plan that the nutritionist had me on, and for some reason I didn't have the same positive impact I had before. I kept trying to eat healthy and then do the strict diet for 2 weeks, but I still wasn't feeling the same energy I had before and I had completely messed up any success I had achieved for my digestive tract. This was my goal initially to help with all the digestive issues I had experienced. Will fast forward about 5 years later to now, I am now 59, still have digestive issues and feel like I have a none existent metabolism. I top of that I recently enjoyed the holidays to the fullest. I must feel better and get back on track. I would love to loose 10lbs, but that would be a bonus. I also have been working with specialist (MDs) on getting my hormones in check. Hopefully eating better and doing the bio-identical hormone replacement will help a lot! Oh and did I mention I love wine....and champagne. I am fussy about the selection, so I won't just drink any wine to just drink. But the ones I enjoy, I do enjoy at social occasions or with my husband. So 30 days of no wine is a sacrifice for me. LOL! I know I can do it. (I am talking myself into it!) So today is my first day on this positive journey. Whole30 makes so much sense and I already know gluten and sugar are not my friends. So here we go! I started today with two hard boiled eggs, and a half of avocado with salt and pepper for breakfast. It tasted delicious. I think avocado makes everything taste good. I do have a cold and am taking Sudafed on top of it all. I am so hoping good nutrition will also help this cold go away faster (it has been 5 day already). I prepped and marinated pork last night and put it in the crock pot this morning. I used the Whole30 slow cooked pork recipe. I am looking forward to this for dinner tonight and leftovers for lunch this week. I am trying to plan ahead. Not easy for me, and I am not a cook. But apparently I will become one! Thanks for listening (reading) and holding me accountable. Even if no one reads this.....I made myself account for the day ahead. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
