Caroline's Whole 30

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am looking for support an accountability as I rashly decide to do a whole30.

I did one 6 years ago and it was bliss, and I haven't been able to replicate the success of my initial round!

I'm going through a rough patch as a mom of 4 wild hyper boys. Most days I just do not want to do my life. I remember in my first whole30 i felt so mentally fantastic, I thought maybe I should try it again. 

My husband thinks I should just cut out flour and alcohol. I guess I better get clear on how deep i'm going to go in this before I start!

Hi Caroline! I started my first Whole30 today. 

How old are your boys? I have a 9-year-old son.

My husband started Whole30 with me today--I really hope he sticks with it so that we can support each other. We live in Santa Fe, NM.

I'm going to check out your blog---hope you have a good evening.

Wow! That's a lot of !BOY! energy in your life.

I checked out your blog--it's really nicely done. And your vacay properties are gorgeous!

It looks like you have a lot on your plate, excuse the pun. Are you still homeschooling the kids?  I know that I get super overwhelmed sometimes, and I only have one child. I work at home, and we have a LOT of animals to take care of (horses, goats, chickens, dogs, parrots...). My son goes to a Montessori school and my husband works, so I do get time to myself. Sometimes I think I get too much time alone, and that I've developed some really bad eating habits because the kitchen is always RIGHT THERE. I was starting to eat pretty much everything that wasn't nailed down. Then one glass of wine in the evening turned into 2...then 3...

I stopped drinking for a few months, tried to quit carbs, did some IF, tried ADF (alternate day fasting)---I wasn't getting the energy I so desperately wanted, and my fog of depression wasn't lifting, so here I am. I think that Whole30 will give me the framework for a healthy re-boot. 

Did you decide to start another Whole30?  

Have a beautiful day ~
