Whole 30~ Day 21
I am in such a good spot right now with my overall weight, health, body/food...stuff... I am now 21 days free of grains, sugar (regular or artificial), dairy, legumes, alcohol, and basically anything processed or junky. Not only am I feeling great physically, but I have this renewed clarity of where I want this journey to go...it's not about being my skinniest, but about my overall health and well being.
I am certainly not at my "smallest" right now, but I am so fine with it. I've had some sweet victories and that's the motivation to keep going! Just to list a few:
~Binge free for 21 days
~Sugar cravings very very minimal...almost non existent
~Sleeping like a log
~Feeling lighter-from the inside out (if that makes sense)
~Noticeably looser clothing
These are just a few off the top of my head, but there are many more.
I am looking ahead at what I might try to add in after my 30 days are up. Definitely not sugar! I am thinking maybe a latte once in awhile if I can tolerate it, but I really think that I will steer clear of grains too for the time being. Most grains that I would go for are empty carbs, so I see no point. Maybe in time I will do some steel cut oats now and then. I will have to think about it, so more on that later.
To wrap it up, I will share a cool story. This morning I picked my clothes for church, and after I got all dressed I looked down and my pants were sagging soo bad, that the crotch was nearly to my KNEES!! LOL My daughter was standing there and gave me this crazy look like, WOW! Me being the late person that I ALWAYS am, I really don't have time to waste fumbling through all of my ill fitting clothes, so I ran upstairs to try to throw something together and by the time I reached the top of the stairs....my pants were literally falling OFF! I seriously wore this exact outfit less than a month ago. WOOHOO~Small victory for me!! I'll take it!
I am feeling so great that I'm already planning my next whole 30! Happy Sparkin'!!
