missmunchie Posted March 1, 2013 Share Posted March 1, 2013 I'm starting another Whole30 today. I did my first W30 from 1/5 - 2/3 and had a great experience, but I realize now that I wasn't ready to "ride my own bike". I used reintroduction to dive back into the unhealthy foods I was supposed to be recovered from and went a little crazy. So I decided to climb back on the wagon a little more prepared and wiser for the next go-around. My #1 goal is to stop my sugar cravings. That's why I'm calling it a "Whole30+", because I think it will take me longer than 30 days to finally reset my system. I quit too soon last time and I don't want to make the same mistake. Here are my other goals: 1. Slay the sugar dragon once and for all (so important I'm mentioning it twice!) 2. Make health-promoting meals and fitness my #1 priority (no more choosing couch over cutting board) 3. Toss the alarm clock and sleep until I wake up, going to bed earlier if I need to get up earlier. 4. Blog/log daily on my progress (emilyrockstheroad.wordpress.com) 5. Take the before & after pics this time for motivation 6. Injury recovery/prevention - foam roll/stretch daily to work out my hamstring & plantar faciitis I'm definately taking on more than I did last time, but I think it's appropriate as I have already figured out the bulk of the challenges when starting a W30 (prep and meal planning, where to get approved food, the quick-and-easy meal go-to list) so now the challenge is just sticking with and maintaining the success.
