Before starting Whole 30

Just a fair warning. Whole 30 is pretty tough

I read one of the Whole 30 books a couple of years ago, and this year has been the only year I've fully completed it. It is tough if you try to do it around holidays or traveling so make sure you try and time it correctly. You also have to be fully committed before starting. This year for lent I decided that's what I was going to do. 

The first couple of weeks it was rough. I felt my body craving sugar-my caramel macchiato and my usual peanut butter M&Ms that I loveee to snack on. It was hard to not just give in and say screw this I need to "treat" myself. 

I feel like nowadays the usual is FOOD-you go out to eat on special occasions, you treat yourself after a hard day at work, food is used as a type of celebration-but Whole 30 can show you how it is more about sustenance than sugar. You will be surprised when you are starting out Whole 30 by how much sugar, molasses, or fake sweeteners are in almost EVERYTHING! The organic aisle actually helped out a ton when shopping for all my Whole 30 ingredients. Reading the back of every label to see what the actual ingredients were on something has made me think twice about what I will buy in the future.

Yes I did lose weight, but that wasn't my main goal. My main goal was to feel better, feel motivated to work out, have more energy and just give my body a reset.
