Three more days, after today. I’m pretty proud of myself.
I do have some ’27 days is basically 30′ thoughts flitting around right now, though. I’m resisting. Partially because I’m lazy, and don’t feel like going out to get fun food. Also, partially, because I really want to be able to say that I did it for 30 days. And, I’m hoping to get to an even 15 pounds lost. We’ll see.
I read the reintroduction instructions on the Whole30 website today. They suggest reintroducing banned foods gradually, to be able to get a better handle on which are too difficult for your body to process. And, if I was doing this because of the way I felt previously, that would make sense. I didn’t really have any food allergies or intolerances. I just wanted to be generally healthier and eat better. I think that my plan going forward will be to eat as cleanly as possible mostly, and probably have a cheat day once a week. That’s pretty much the opposite of what they suggest. We’ll see how it goes.
Anyway, I feel like it’s a sustainable way to live, though it does require a lot of planning. I’m not sure I would have made it this long if I’d had a job. I think the time and mentally energy involved would have been more than I would have had to spare if I was working. I don’t know how people do this, have jobs, exercise, raise kids, maintain websites, etc. When do you people sleep?
