Boom, alright! I feel amazing. I’m not stopping at 30 days, I’m carrying on. I won’t be as stringent, because hello! Christmas is on it’s way. But apart from Christmas celebrations and my trips to Prague and Salzburg – I will be eating Whole 30.
Last time I did a Whole 30 in 2012 I was straight onto a glass of wine the day after, to celebrate. Seems silly, I know. But this time round I’m older, more determined and ultimately just not as beholden to a glass of wine like I used to be.
- I sleep soundly every night. Every! I have more energy, I get up and move about more, I’m overall less lazy.
- I have lost 4.7kgs (10.3lbs) and not only do I feel and notice the difference, people are commenting on it. The frustrating thing is that my weight loss is all around my face and shoulders and décolletage. They always say you lose it top to bottom, so I really need to get stuck in now to slim my tummy and ass.
- My skin is clear, my hair is glossy (I think it’s all the salmon and avocado I’ve been eating); religiously drinking water really does have it’s benefits.
I won’t be posting weekly reviews moving forward, instead the odd catch up post on how I’m progressing.
If you are wondering about a Whole 30 and if it’s right for you – start reading up. Knowledge is power. If you understand the eating plan of Whole 30 you can make a judgement. Don’t jump in knowing half the facts. Especially make sure you understand what is approved to eat and what is discouraged. A simple slip up of eating peas (nearly happened to me on day 24) could ruin all your hard work. Not ruin in the fact that you gain weight or your body falls apart, but more your sense of achievement for not making it the full 30 days!
