Time flies when you're having fun!
Okay, fun might be extreme, but seriously, I feel most excellent coming up on the half way point during this #Whole30 journey.
I'd say I've been 99% compliant, just because there are only so many questions I can ask when I go out to eat without guaranteeing someone may/may not add unwanted moisture to my food.
I'm fitting into pants that were in that pile in my closet. That pile, otherwise known as the I can't button these without damaging a piece or a part/or my hips are now laughing at us rejects, is a sad, sad corner of the world. They are now being reacclimatized into the active part of the wardrobe. Tentatively. (Because we still don't trust them. After all, they betrayed us by shrinking in the first place;)
Cravings—gone! What? Seriously, this might be the most incredible part of the journey.
I tend to not be hungry as much which is kind of amazing, considering I'm never one to miss a meal—ever.
Without going there, I will report a certain time of the month is noticeably more pleasant.
Energy? When I do work out, I'm all in—as in not dragging. I attribute this to replacing the glucose with increasing amounts of healthy fats. Basketball season has kicked off, so two months of practices/games at different times/locations effectively hijacked the second half of my day.
I'm not bitter.
Or, I'm working on not being bitter. There. That's closer to honesty. My mind is shifting to gratitude toward the school system in making me more intentional with my time for working out. See how I just did that? Insert a work in progress expression.
So, there you go.
