jhmomi Posted October 23, 2012 Share Posted October 23, 2012 Twenty-two days with varying degrees of off-roading is too much. Not too focused lately and enough is enough. Decided last night after some serious snacking on very non-compliant foods and a couple glasses of wine that the pattern of bad behavior needs to be broken and replaced with healthier choices. I am so thankful this is my third Whole30 so I know what I can eat and I already have plenty of wonderful foods here in my home to choose from. The problem the past few weeks is that I just wasn't choosing them often enough... My post Whole30 log is linked here...http://forum.whole9l...olehealthylife/ Within my post Whole30 log there is a link to my Whole30 #2 log from August. I started Whole30 #3 today, October 23rd which means I will complete Day 30 on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Seems perfect timing because I will be a mindful eater on Thanksgiving and if past experience repeats, I will not off-road much on Day 31. It was a quick decision last night that enough is enough and I had to begin Whole30 #3 TODAY. I signed up for the Whole30 daily just for fun and a continual reminder of what I am trying to do. I won't actually get the Day 1 e-mail until tomorrow but who cares. For me, my Whole30 #3 goals are aggressive, and I may fall a bit short some days, but I am trying to set the bar higher for myself so I can achieve the results I want. My ultimate goal is to develop a consistent healthy lifestyle that involves regular exercise and eating primarily whole, unprocessed foods and routine exclusion of grains, dairy and sugar. I am not trying to do a Whole365, but limiting off-roading post Whole30 is another challenge to face later. I am thankful to return to Whole30 #3 faster than I did Whole30 #2. My Primary goals for Whole30 #3: Make sleep a priority. Wind down earlier each night, and read a little of a good fun book before bed. Lights out by 10 pm during the week since I get up each morning at 6 to get kids off to school. Follow the meal template and eat three good meals a day. Make breakfast and lunch substantial enough that dinner is not my largest meal of the day, but rather equal to lunch or smaller. No snacking unless physically hungry. The mindless eating habit must be broken! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
