Day 969- Day 20 and Day 21 of Whole30

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, July 27, 2014

I had a successful weekend celebrating J.D.'s grandmother's 85th birthday. I packed a ton of fruit, and cashews. I bought some more hard boiled eggs and ate green beans and potatoes at dinner.

And I did go fishing and put a worm on the hook. I even caught two bluegills! And J.D. didn't catch a thing! I almost felt bad.



After fishing, we headed back to the hotel to shower before the birthday party. I decided to run a mile on the treadmill, just to see if I could get close to under 8 minutes like I did outside last week. And this was the result...





I was a sweaty mess but I'm beginning to realize that just like my mind has control over my food, my mind has control over my body's ability to exercise. Most of the times I slow down it's because my mind is thinking "Man you're breathing hard, your calves are kinda hurting. Give yourself a break." But when I decided to go as hard as I can at 8 mph on the treadmill, I ran a mile in 7:38!

And today is the end of Day 21. Which means I've done Whole30 for 3 whole weeks!

I am so flattered with all of you who have been telling me you are starting your own Whole30 experiences because of my blogging! I'm so happy to be able to share my experiences especially if they help some of you also make healthier decisions. I'll be very interested to hear about all of your Whole30s.

  Congratulations! I so appreciate your comments about what your body can and cannot do because I'm rebuilding my strength after a ski injury six months ago. Yesterday, I did Body Pump, followed by a full day of activity, including cooking and cleaning and for the first time did not need a nap. It's a little step, but at least it is improvement.

    Because of your blog I will be checking out the Whole 30 team. I loved your statement "I'm beginning to realize that just like my mind has control over my food, my mind has control over my body's ability to exercise. " That's what I have to tell myself and gain control of.

    Not at the whole 30 point yet, but I am starting a clean eating challenge tomorrow with my "diet buddies".

I imagine I'll be able to pull that off. I mostly do that already. lol

Glad you had a good weekend! :)
