Whole30 Day 1

Standard

Today is Day 1 of the Whole30 program! I got my mom, best friend (she joined yesterday, yay!), and myself all prepped and ready last night for the week. We all are super pumped and excited for this 30 day challenge! 🙂

The challenge is based around eating quality, whole, good-for-you foods. No sugar, dairy, grains, legumes, or processed junk including sulfites, MSG’s, or carrageenan’s. It’s about process of elimination to not only help you find a better balance with food but to also let you see what allergies or food sensitivities you may have.

The thing that got me so excited about this program, was how many people had significant number drops in their cholesterol and some were even able to get off their medications. Wow! It would just be amazing to get those dang numbers down!

With the program, they also recommended you read their book, It Starts With Food. It was written by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig who created the Whole30 program. It is an amazing book about all the different food groups and how they affect our bodies, negatively or positively. They give you all the scienc-y stuff about food and dumb it down so it is easy to understand. I am about halfway through and excited to continue reading and learning more. One big thing they emphasize on is finding the balance, which is one of my main goals to find again.

This program is the exact jumpstart I need to get to back on track. To be able to find the balance, feel better, and be proud of the person staring back at me in the mirror again. I will be posting everyday about how it is all going, my workouts, and what we are eating. I am so thankful and lucky to have my mom and best friend along with me for the ride! So important to have a great support system when taking on a big challenge! Through perseverance, it is going to be an AWESOME 30 days! 😀
