As many of you know, I started Whole 30 about 24 days ago…and at that point, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to! I knew it would be hard. I knew it would test my mental strength more than anything. But I really didn’t know it was going to do things to help my mood, my skin, my hair…just everything.
For those of you who DON’T know what Whole 30 is, you can find all of the information on their website. Everything is laid out from the rules to tools to use to help you and also a timeline of how you may or may not feel each day while going through this process!! This site has helped me tremendously! I also did a lot of research for recipes on Pinterest & Instagram (aren’t hashtags just the BEST)! And I even joined a Whole 30 Facebook group that is very supportive. And of course, the book that explains EVERYTHING called It Starts With Food. I recommend one or all of these things to keep you on track and also to help you remember that you aren’t alone!!
I know I’m not done yet, but I just wanted to let you all know that if you are contemplating it…DO IT!!! Just take the plunge and try it. I will say, however, that I do believe you need to mentally prepare yourself for what you are about to do. You are going to know every ingredient going into your body and you need to know how to pronounce all things! There’s no excuses on this. And there is no “cheating” (as so many people like to call it) during the 30 days.
I know there is an OFFICIAL Whole 30 that is being run by the Whole 30 creators themselves that starts on August 1st! There’s a couple of days from now until then to get yourself prepared & ready to go! Are you up for the challenge?! You won’t be disappointed!!! I’m going to do a complete write up of the entire Whole 30 journey for me when I’m all done. But I just wanted you guys to have the above resources to help you get started ASAP!
Let me know if you have ANY questions here in the comments & I will try my absolute best to answer you!!
Love you all & I wish you all the best of luck!
