Day 31

Hello Reader,

Loveland, CO

First day of reintroduction! No I did not reintroduce blueberry muffins today… Even though I wanted too!

Today I reintroduced dairy. At lunch I had some sour cream with my meal. For dinner we made a marinara sauce with dairy in it.

I am always nervous for reintroduction so sometimes it is hard to tell if I am feeling weird because I am nervous or because the food is really getting to me. Luckily the Whole30 plan for reintroduction allows enough time with each food group to determine what the real issue is.

Today is dairy. Tomorrow is back on the Whole30. Friday is gluten!

The U-Turn

Hello Reader,

South Africa

Has someone’s personality ever changed on you so fast you look at them like this bird is looking at my camera?

Today I had someone’s personality do a U-turn in comparison to yesterday and I was eyeing them wondering “Who are you and what have you done to them?” Everyone changes… Still I wonder…?

Day 29

Hello Reader,

South Africa

Day 29… This month has felt like I have been on a Ferris Wheel! One day I am feeling high and soaring above everything; the next I am feeling down and worried how my Whole30 will turn out. Some days are great on the Whole30 and others not so much. The whole time you are learning a lot though! So take all the goods and all the bads and average those times out. I bet your average is more good than bad!

One more day people! Then reintroduction starts!

Day 28

Hello Reader,

South Africa

Day 28 has me running away from temptation like this giraffe is running away from our vehicle! My early-day-post note to you is stay strong and don’t give up with only 3 days left (including today since it is still early)!

Day 27

Hello Reader,

Fort Collins, CO

Day 27 and I am feeling my Sugar Dragon peaking out because the end is near. Sugar is my down fall. I can get rid of the bread, cheese, wine, etc. But sugar is where I really fail. I LOVE sugar or maybe I should say my brain loves sugar.

Even while I am on the Whole30 my brain is trying to find ways to get a sugar fix. Fruit is that fix. I love fruit and always have but it contains enough natural sugar that my brain sees it as a treat and that is not good. Sometimes even the right foods can create eating habits that aren’t so great!
