My Whole30 Experience - Day Eleven


I have dedicated myself to sticking with the Whole30 plan for a month and it seemed like it would be easy to do. But I am so wrong!

This is awfully difficult. I feel great, no bloating, no hot flashes - which is huge. I love getting up in the morning and feeling alert, awake, and slim. I think my HA's are better also. What I really need is to exercise more and have a greater appreciation for staying busy.

The garage has been a huge undertaking! Physically, emotionally, and financially draining! But like this diet, I feel good about the process. 

I am distracted and feel sad. My friend Pete* passed away. And now Rose* is very ill.

I pray she is strong enough to come off the ventilator and return to the incredible, amazing, strong female role model that she is. 


I want to be able to do this!

The Whole30 is their original nutritional program designed to change your life in 30 days. Think of it as a short-term nutritional reset, designed to help you put and end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance you immune system."
