Susan W Posted November 2, 2012 Share Posted November 2, 2012 I started my third Whole 30 on Nov 1. I don't normally do any kind of log, but I think I want to put my plan out there to stay connected with what my goals are. I completed my first Whole 30 in August of 2011. I loved it. My second Whole 30 was completed in September of this year. Loved it even more. The book, the daily emails and this forum really kept me excited and involved. I am one of the lucky ones that has an easy time with the food on Whole 30. In fact, when I'm not on Whole 30, you'd never know it. I rarely off road and when I do, it's for something special and I do it very mindfully. It's not an obsession, it's simply how I eat to feel great and it's part of my lifestyle now. I did scarf a piece of bread slathered with butter the evening I found out I was laid off from a job I've had for almost ten years. The bread solved nothing! Shocking. This Whole 30 will be a little different than the other two. I focused on food rather than also including life habits that I really need to change. So, for this Whole 30, I am committed to: 1. Lights out at 10pm with the intention of sleeping 8 hours. I typically only sleep 5-6 hours a night. 2. No Kindle, laptop, TV (this will be the hard one) or cell phone in my bedroom. 3. Continue to eat healthy, but SLOW down. I eat like I am on a 5 minute break working in a restaurant (I was a server for many years), which is what I blame it on, but really, I do have control how I eat. 4. No eating in front of the TV. 5. Make an effort to eat with others as often as possible. Edit to add: One food restriction other than the usual. My home made bacon. I had every intention of saying that 2 pieces a day with my eggs was using bacon as a condiment as Melissa suggested we should do...no, it's not. So, no pork belly for me for 30 days and then afterwards, I truly will only use it as a condiment and flavoring. As in lardons in my delicious wilted escarole salad with poached eggs on top. Choose one or more of the following: 6. Volunteer up at OHSU as a Chemo buddy 7. Volunteer at the Oregon Humane Society. 8. Look into CASA. Okay, there we go. It's out there now, so here I go. Yesterday and today, I have followed all of my committments with the exception of the last 3. I am looking into those. I slept horribly last night, but I am breaking a habit of being way too busy with TV and Laptop and Kindle at bedtime. I think it will take a while to get used to my new routine. Wish me luck!
