bring it on--Camille's whole30, round two!

I can't believe it's here already (although it's a good thing that it is), but today is Day 1 of my SECOND whole30! Woo hoo!

To start, here are the goals:

Improve my sleeping habits: Get to bed earlier, sleep better, be more rested. Done.

Improve my relationship with food: Fight (and kill) the sugar dragon. Stop worrying about what I eat, and when I eat, and why I eat, and just EAT. To think about food more (where it comes from, how it is nourishing my body, the joy of creating a great meal) and to think about food less (the random food item calling to me from the cupboard, the guilt-ridden struggle of "should I eat this? should I not?")

Get back on the workout train: Get through the "beginner bodyweight circuit" by NerdFitness every other day, and advance to 3 (maybe 4) circuits by the end of the month.

Get comfortable in my own skin: Stop being defined by the scale and numbers and measurements. Knowing these things for tracking purposes (and I feel accomplished when the numbers are good), but to not be constantly worried if I've put on a pound or two here or there. I just want to go by how I feel and look.

Right. Here's the start of the food log:

Day 1

Pre-Wo: Hard-boiled egg

Meal 1: 2 sausages (handmade by local butcher), 2 eggs, handful of cherry tomatoes, coffee w/coconut milk creamer

Snack: sweet potato w/olive oil and salt

Meal 2: 1 1/2 salmon steaks, brussel sprouts, carrots, sweet potatoes, apple, herbal tea

Snack: Handful of cherry tomatoes, 1/4 sweet potato, fried egg, herbal tea

I'm also going to be blogging my way through this, if anyone is interested. It'll be a lot of the same stuff here, but easier for friends to find and read.
