So last night I posted about how this eating plan has become a way of life for me and how it's been much easier than quitting smoking or drinking was. And in the bright light of a beautiful morning - it's all still true! It's just that I've been feeling like I could do MORE and really amp this thing up. I'm a little behind in my Whole30 Daily emails so I began to catch up on them this morning. And low and behold, I found some answers.
I've been wondering why I'm not as fruit crazy as I was in the beginning of this thing. In my first go round, I craved fruit like it was my only form of sustanance. I swear I lived off watermelon the last two weeks of my first go round. Now? Not so much. I still have fruit every day but it's a small amount and not nearly as bad as before. Turns out this is a GOOD thing. Here are the five common errors from Whole30 Daily Day 7. (If you haven't signed up for this newsletter you should. Each day is chock full of great information no matter what day you are on. Just go to www.whole9life.com and click on Whole30 Daily.)
I've been guilty of all of these (yes...even getting on the scale) except the Paleo food thing (mainly because I've been too busy to look for recipes). So I'm going to be extra careful while I'm in it this time to watch the fruit, nuts, and scale thing.
My Day 8 Newsletter is full of inspirational stories from people who have found the miracle. Some brought me to tears. Some made me cheer. All made me recommit. Go onto the website and check out success stories. Like my "drunk books", these stories are like a booster shot for me.
Hope your plan is going well! Feel free to share. I love it when I know what's going on (yes...because I'm a little nosey) in your lives. Good or bad - we're all in this together.
