And I dove head FIRST into the thirty days required of the Whole 30 guidelines. I'm seven days into this & I'm not turning back. No, I didn't read the book (hello, I'm a mom of two little bitties-the only reading I attempt is my Bible at 5 am if I can get my booty out of bed) but I did do my research for about a month before ultimately deciding to take the plunge. You can find the majority of guidelines on google or pinterest, similar here.
But after beginning my barre workouts earlier this month, I knew I didn't want to continue making the time to work out so hard without ultimately making a commitment to be able to (not only feel the results) but SEE the results of all the time & hard work I have putting in to feeling better. E v e n if that meant saying goodbye to a couple of my favorite things for a month. It's only a month right? And who knows. I might not even miss them all that much if I see what it's like to do with out them!
**After drinking this-I researched & found that "they claim this is not compliant with Whole 30 d/t ingredients in this particular almond milk. Y'all, I spent $8 on compliant almond milk. I'm trying my best...but come on. This coffee option is dairy free-MUCH better than my past choices before Whole 30- & that's that.
(the boys ate this too, except I put theirs on toast! Cam loved the "sausage" aka bacon😁)
The flavor of the week is one I have wanted to try for a year😫 This will be our first weekend without the traditional Makers run. That's okay, though:)
Contrary to "best practice"...in my case, it was actually better for me to go to the grocery store every evening before I began supper. I didn't know what I wanted til THAT time of day anyway, so it always helped that I was fixing something I wanted & then no food went to waste! It was much less stressful then transporting foods between two states & making the grocery list for a week of Whole 30 meals + making what I cooked also work for the boy's meals.
