gboyum Posted November 28, 2012 Share Posted November 28, 2012 I finished my first Whole 30, with great success, the day before Thanksgiving. Over Thanksgiving weekend I ate what I wanted, and pretty liberally. All weekend long I suffered from bloating, stomach aches, and then a few days ago my chin broke out. I used the Whole 30 Daily, which was a great motivator. I am having trouble with that motivation now. I obviously know what is best for me, but I keep telling myself "TOMORROW I will eat clean", then I don't. After a long weekend all my poor habits seem to be back. I've already had a handful of Hershey Kisses at my desk today. UGH! Stomach ache here we come! So here is where I am right now. I am not going to pretend that I will stick to a strict Whole 30 over the Holidays. I would like to stay clean on most days but be able to enjoy gatherings with no restrictions. I am planning on doing the Whole 30 again in January, but are there any suggestions on how to stay on track without the daily emails? I figured I can't do the Daily again because I have already. I haven't read ISWT, I've considered buying it, do I really need to? Or is the information in the book going the same as the Daily? Suggestions from people who have done multiple Whole 30's on how to take it up a notch? It is obvious to me that I have issues with sugar that are unresolved. And after my second Whole 30 I plan to do the proper reintroduction so I can see if it is dairy that makes my chin break out. My long term goal would be to get to a place where I can enjoy some of the "forbidden" foods every now and then, and not have that lead to a day of poor choices. Do people get there? Any thoughts from people who NEVER get there? Is this stuff in the book? Has the Whole 9 team considered a daily email program for intermediate or advanced Whole 30 participants?
