That’s day 24 on the books. Less than a week to go on Whole30!
The very next day after my last post, everything changed for the better. I didn’t want to post about it at the risk of jinxing myself, but it’s been a long enough trend now that I can at least report on a pattern. All of a sudden: improved sleep, regular poops, not a single headache, and good workouts. I’ve been dreaming nightly of oh-shit scenarios where I’ve accidentally consumed a prohibited Whole30 item, and waking up in massive relief to find that it didn’t happen. Beyond that, I am constantly thinking about working out. I will be in the middle of a sprint on the elliptical, thinking about working out. It does not make sense.
This must be my version of tiger blood. It’s not euphoria and unlimited energy, but I am grateful this upswing has finally found me.
I’ve started doing regular core exercises along with my arms circuit for the first time. I’m almost finished prepping my food for this last week of the program. I’m eager to see the final results. Regrettably, I only weighed myself before starting; I did not take measurements or photos. However, if I’m pleased with the results, I’ll likely incorporate a large part of the program into my typical diet for at least the short-term. Hopefully, that will still help me continue on my weight-loss mission, but lessen some of the expense.
Here’s hoping for a strong finish (and beyond)!
