doing-the-w30-fb-cover-660x244Wow, its been almost 2 years since I have blogged… bought a house, took a board certification test, and got married! So, I guess I have an excuse, but I’ve wanted to get back to this. So no better way than to document my first whole 30. Now this isn’t my first attempt; however, having made it through a baseball game tailgate without any attempts at eating non-compliant foods, I’m pretty confident I will be successful this go around.

Why a Whole 30? I feel like I have fallen way off track eating healthy, with stress being the main reason/excuse for unhealthy eating habits. for some reason I can justify eating cupcakes, muffins, etc. because I have an a sense of an ounce of stress. In addition to removing foods that cause unhealthy reactions in the body, but also to help with the psychologically unhealthy foods, which was the main premise of my need to start and complete this.

So now that I am blogging about it, I will have to be successful, right? I’m also revisiting some of my oldie but goody recipes and using them throughout this 30 days and sharing links for some of my favs. Here we go, week 1 completed as of 8:30 this evening! I actually felt better than I was anticipating, but I think I also had a fairly good diet before hand with a sweet tooth added. Week on down and I’m feeling pretty good, maybe a headache here and there with only one day of really low energy, but I think I just didn’t have enough good carbs the evening before.
