Whole30 – round 3!
Yup, that’s right … I am going to do my third Whole30 this month. CrossFit 603 is doing another challenge and I figured it would be good for me mentally and physically if I participated. We all start this weekend 🙂 Sure football season is upon us and fall season is about to start which means lots of fun festive fall drinks but there is never a PERFECT time to start now is there?!
Since my last Whole30 a lot has changed for me. I got a new job and am working in the city now vs. working from home. Because of this change I no longer have the opportunity to get to the box during the week and have relied on my eating to help keep me healthy. I now commute almost 2-hours one way to work and feel like I sit more than anything at my job. I come home after a long day and all I want is a glass of wine and some relax time before heading to bed to start the day again. So I guess, what I feel like I am going to miss the most in the upcoming 30 days is my box of wine!! (haha)
I have definitely felt my body slowly deteriorating over the last 4-5 weeks. A lot of people have complained about feeling sick so I am not sure if that has played a factor, but my body has just felt really “off” lately. From my joints and muscles reaking havoc on my body, to my stomach not really liking most things I eat these days no matter what it is. I am REALLY looking forward to eating clean and getting my body to feel its best the way I know it can (and should)!
The second time I did the Whole30 I didn’t blog everyday about it but instead just posted when I came across a new recipe, etc. My intention on this next Whole30 is to blog as much as possible (hopefully daily). I want to bring awareness to this amazing experience so everyone around me can also feel their ultimate best!
I am going to have to work really hard this time at being prepared and staying Whole30 compliant since I now spend more time out of my house than I do at home. But I know I have the knowledge, experience and necessary tools to stay on track! I also have a great support system (CF603) which really does make all the difference.
I got 2 new cookbooks to use during the Whole30. I know that all the recipes aren’t all Whole30 compliant but I know I can make substitutes to make them work! I can’t wait to get cooking.
Keep an eye out for my blog if you want to follow along my 30-day journey 🙂
