Cranky beginnings: Whole 30
Tuesday, July 19, 2016
Of late I have been eating cakes, sweets, milkshakes, ice creams and other similar desserts. I have been consuming these multiple times in the day, sometimes for breakfast. When I'm not inhaling dessert I'm shoveling cheeses, white bread rolls, french fries, buttered beans, ketchup, and ham down my gullet.
Each meal is accompanied by at least two if not four cups of coffee. I drink less than a bottle of water daily.
Needless to say, my gut is busted and I feel rather miserable. This is all in anticipation of a very stressful family meeting this weekend--I eat for comfort but my bloated and groaning body won't alleviate any of my family stress.
Unfortunately, I am not in as much control of my choices as I'd like to think. I'm not turning down sweets and I'm not picking up greens. I want this to change. I've wanted it to change for a jolly long time and apparently the wanting isn't enough, I have to do something about it.
So, next Tuesday July 28 when I return home to Chicago, I will begin Whole 30. While I do not have a gluten sensitivity or even any problems with dairy, I do have a serious sweet tooth that is sabotaging my health. I also miss my vegetables and the joy of food prep.
Stay tuned for Pre-Whole 30 measurements; weekly goals; and starting my new strength training regimen.
