Recommended Posts

Just finished Day 3! Yay!  Shaking a soda habit that started last year...

Drinking water w/ slice of orange for W30 + approved coconut water.

NOTES

***B/c of IBS/gallbladder issues, I am eating more frequent, smaller meals as suggested in the W30 book

** Important to take a PROBIOTIC daily to ward off digestive issues / changes (& imp.  to drink my orange water)

* I can't face eggs in the morning, so had an idea to have baked sweet potato for breakfast - so far working out well! :)

* I know smoothies are not encouraged, but I have just started doing them again & don't want to lose a healthy habit, plus it's a way to take Collagen,- imp. for my health.
