So we gave up on the Whole30 itself. Though we learned a lot about ourselves. I can't really do dairy much at all (except for a little cheese). Andy can't do ice cream... We both feel bloated with too many grains, don't really like the feeling... but aren't restricting ourselves so much anymore... but we don't bring junk into our house. So, that at least is a huge helpful thing.
However, we are both still going with our healthy journey, I still find the book "It Starts With Food" a crucial read for anyone undergoing a health journey. I also will be registering for The Color Run and Pretty Muddy this year- my first two 5ks. Hopefully I'll be able to jog them, but we'll see... it all depends on my foot pain, and what I need to do about that pain this year. Overall, I am down 9 pounds from when I began, Andy is down about 18 pounds. Men lose weight quicker- sigh!
God is very good to us! We are really embracing this lifestyle change in so many ways- learning so many new things... for instance (I know this will look silly), but did you know you can make your bed in 3 minutes or less- and that just one SMALL change like that can make your room more inviting? Yes, I was always a chronic messy bed person (anyone that knew me from college would know this too). But I just... had enough. So I've started to be more organized in many different ways... And really enjoy them.
Okay, gotta go make lunches for work! Later guys and dolls...
