It felt good to wake up this morning with a Whole30 email waiting for me and knowing that I was going to put only good, high quality foods into my body. With our first Whole30, I did not focus on the ratios of foods during a meal as much as “everything is on plan” and while I feel like that is sufficient, I really wanted to make sure that this time we effectively slay the sugar dragons for good. For me that means, really limiting fruit, never using it as a snack or breakfast and in general having mostly veggies, I think that breakfast salads are my new best friend! It is an added challenge for us to avoid mammal meat on this plan, but so far it hasn’t been an issue and I don’t really crave red meat in general.
I did take some before photos and weigh myself this morning. I am not sure that I will be sharing those with the World Wide Web, but I think that they will be a good way for me to really demonstrate to myself that there are real, physical changes that go along with the mental ones. I really struggled with that during my first Whole30. Or maybe I just need to come to terms with the idea that the physiological and psychological changes are enough?
