Done. Well almost done. Today is the last day of my first round of #whole30. I am quite thrilled I made it to the end. It is a huge confidence booster that I was able to set myself upon a task and get the job done. I am a little nervous about the introducing foods back into my diet - not going to lie. I did shed some weight and that was one of my main goals was to jump start the metabolism on this 50 year old body. Through this month I learned that sugar still does have a hold on me even though I rarely eat it - there were days the desire for something sweet was strong enough I had to practice serious distraction techniques. I missed my glass of wine with dinner for sure. I kept longing for the day I could put milk back in my coffee but, now that the day is close I might not go back. Will definitely introduce yogourt back and see how that goes. I have been eating wheat free for several years. I am not a zealot about it but, I definitely limit my consumption and I have noticed a big difference in how I feel. So, I will continue to limit wheat. First up on the other grains will be some brown rice. I would totally recommend this program. It is a big commitment and you need to be prepared. Let me know if you decide to participate.
