My last post was very optimistic. I was clearly having a good day. I’ll be honest though, this has not been easy. Yes, it is interesting to experience life on the Whole 30 but I’m ready for the 30 to be over.
I’m not going to list out everything that I miss because that is not the point. Pizza sounds good and a fancy cocktail made by my crafty husband would be amazing but I started this with a purpose and I intend to stick with it through the last days.
Here are just a few things I have been experiencing that you may want to be aware of if you choose to do a Whole 30 (which I do recommend, even if it is hard).
This post certainly casts a more realistic, albeit more negative, light on my experience. I didn’t want to give the impression that this has been easy. Some days are easier than others and I do enjoy the benefits listed out in my last post. I do not regret taking on this challenge as it has given me new perspectives and stronger appreciation for the pleasure experienced through food.
I hope you read this and get a better perspective on the challenge of the Whole 30. Please don’t let this be a deterrent to trying it out for yourself. There are great resources to get you through the 30 days. Supportive friends and family will be your greatest resource.
It’s day 18. Only 12 more to go.
