Today is the day; I am finally done with the Whole30! Hubs made it one day, and opted out. I think changing his diet, in addition to the lifestyle changes he was making, was just too much. But I can proudly say that both he and I haven’t had an alcoholic beverage for over a month, so that’s pretty awesome. I’m especially proud of him! I’m also thankful for his support while doing the Whole30. He was the one to push me at home and remind me that I could do this. He was there questioning the things I ate; and while it was annoying at times, I’m glad he was around to do it. Lord knows, I may not have made it as far without him. Sometimes I need a swift kick in the ass when I get super intense cravings. Heck, I need that sometimes when food is not even the matter at hand! ;)
So, I’m finished with Whole30 and I have seen some significant changes, the main one being that the pain I felt almost daily with my digestive system has eased up a bit. I have also noticed that my clothes are a little looser, I have more energy, and my taste buds have changed big time. I had some sunflower butter that had added sugar- bleah… too sweet! It appears some things are too sugary for me. (I’m still craving a 1pump white mocha espresso drink from Starbucks, however!) I didn’t exactly do the reintroduction part of the program the right way, and I’m ok with that. I seriously believe that from here on out I will follow a primarily paleo/primal diet; it just seems to work.
So here is to Whole30…YAY! Thanks for helping me realize how much diet factors in on the journey to healing myself and others.
