micah_erin76 Posted January 9, 2018 Share Posted January 9, 2018 Today is my 2nd day of my Whole 30. This is my 1st Whole 30. I bought The 30 Day Guide to Health and Food Freedom and Food Freedom Forever and started reading last week. By Sat and Sun before starting my W30, I was wrestling with anxiety and doubt that I would be able to successfully do this. My diet has been pretty consistently horrible for the past 3 years with an excess of sugar, bad fats, and processed foods. My eating habits were such a part of poor coping skills that I had thought how could I possibly get through a day without...let alone 30 days. I've been working on focusing on my goals and reasons for doing this. There are so many things I want to do to enjoy each day but rarely have the strength or energy to do much of anything other than recuperate when I'm off work. My reasons for successfully completing W30: 1. Give my body the fuel it needs to function at its best 2. Be a positive example for health promotion for my son 3. Improve/eliminate aches, pains in joints and back 4. Work toward healthy weight 5. Feel good about how I treat myself I want to hike, bike, swim and be able to play basketball with my son. I've been in a cycle of overeating unhealthy food for so long and have had such low energy for so long, that I really look forward to being able to wake up and enjoy an active lifestyle rather than feeling so pooped that I can only partially participate and then feel I need to rest. Looking forward to advice and encouragement along the way! Let's do this! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
