30 DAYS….MY FIRST WHOLE30!

DSCF4843In keeping with my goals for 2013, I’ve been thinking about changes I want to make in regards to nutrition/food.  I truly believe that the food I eat impacts how I feel both physically and mentally. For the most part, I think that we eat a generally healthy diet with the occasional indulgences.  

Lately though, we’ve been dining out and eating sweets too frequently (darn those Girl Scout cookies!).  I don’t think either of these are “bad”, but when done too often, can lead to developing some not-so-great habits.  It is time to clean things up and establish some new habits! 

I’ve been thinking about trying the Whole30 for a while now, but hadn’t really taken the plunge because I didn’t know enough about it.  So, I ordered It Starts With Food,” by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, who started the program, to read up on it.  The book explains the plan well, and goes into detail about the reasons and science behind it.   So, after spring break, I am going to start my first Whole30!  

I’ve done similar plans before and always felt great after getting through the first week, so I’m cautiously optimistic about it.  Being optimistic, however, does not mean that I probably won’t complain about missing my Ezekiel toast in the morning or not having dessert after a meal for 30 days.  For those of you who have tried it, please send your favorite tips my way, either by comment or email.  Stay tuned for posts during my Whole30……the good, the bad, and the ugly!
