I have GOT to do something, because it just keeps creeping up. I know a big part of that is my pepsi and little debbie/cream horn addictions. I've got to rein that shit in.
I really need help sticking with Whole30 this time around. It will help me break my pepsi addiction, and I need to make sue I keep it that way this time. I actually eat tons more when I'm on Whole30, but it's all healthy, whole foods. You have a palm-sized(ish) portion of protein, fill your plate with veggies, and then have a serving of healthy fats like nuts, olives, avocado, or coconut (which I won't eat).
You eliminate entirely:
- Sugar and artificial sweeteners
I am so much healthier when I do Whole30. As long as I can avoid getting sick this time, I hope that I can complete the full 30 days and do a proper reintroduction phase, so that I can figure out how different foods affect me.
I'm going to need some serious cheerleading and ass-riding to not fail this time, so please help? Bonus if anyone wants to buddy up and do it with me. You actually eat loads of delicious, healthy foods! And the whole program is offered for free online, so you don't have to buy their stuff to get started. You might have to invest in healthier cooking options like coconut or avocado oil, ghee, compliant mayo (if you don't want to make your own), etc.
You also get pre- and post-workout mini-meals, and I'm going to try to have a better exercise schedule this time around. I volunteer at a gym twice a month and get a free membership out of it, but the gym is an hour away so I usually only go twice a month. I really need to try to make it out there more often, and if I can't, I need to be doing more exercise here at home. I think I'm going to start back up with the youtube videos of 30 Days of Yoga with Adrienne. I started that once and never finished it. I also need to just start including daily basics like sit ups, push ups (if my elbow can handle it these days), squats, etc.
I'm determined to make a change in 2018. Just...help me remember and stick with it, okay? Because my health and body is deteriorating, and I don't like that.
