Marcia Posted January 29, 2013 Share Posted January 29, 2013 Yes! That's right... I'm going for 90 days... 3 months! I did a Whole30 that began 10/20 and ended a few days before Thanksgiving, but I was still good and just added a bit of organic maple syrup to the sweet potato casserole and cranberry sauce I made. Man!!! Cranberries are tart! During the Whole30 I did very well... didn't cheat once... the only thing I had trouble with was getting in 3 meals a day. I'm retired and after getting up at 5:30 am for nearly 25 years I enjoy sleeping in... I also have to take hypothyroid meds on an empty stomach... besides I don't like to eat first thing, although I do love a hearty breakfast. In those 30 days I did loose 10 pounds and gave up my beloved Diet Pepsi... still haven't had one! Now I only drink water and black coffee. I'm still waiting to feel all that energy that so many rave about, but I never have been a high energy person so perhaps it just won't happen for me. I'm also 62 and still need to lose another 20 pounds at least. Oh... and one more thing I do have high blood sugar issues. Not a Type II yet, but if I don't stop eating junk I will be!!! I also need to GET MOVING instead of sitting on my butt all day on the computer!!! Sooo... With Spring coming I want to be ready to enjoy the outdoors and my large perennial garden... feeling good, feeling energetic, and healthy! My strategy is to get up when I'm ready, have a big breakfast when I'm ready, and then have a light lunch (large veggie salad with protein), and then dinner around 7:00. My plan is to walk everyday and build up to 3 miles. As long as it doesn't go below 20 and not slippery I'll walk outside, but I do have a treadmill so no excuses! Also need to drink more water. I've found so many wonderful recipes in It Starts with Food, Well Fed, and online eating complaint is not a problem... However, since my first Whole30 ended I've found myself stopping for Fast Food and buying those addicting potato chips more and more so I've decided to recommit... For accountability, come Feb. 1st I'll be posting my meals. Here I go!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
