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.
