Just yesterday, I began my first ever Whole 30! This post is the why behind it and my expectations from completing it successfully!
I’ve watched countless other blogger friends complete Whole 30’s over and over, reporting their responses to the 30 days in blog posts that make for interesting reading.
I have an understanding of the power of food – I’ve seen changes in my body this year alone since eating the alkaline way. Just last year, I completed a juice cleanse for 5 days and felt amazing – my skin was glowing, my energy was endless….and then I went back to eating the same stuff that had been creating havoc with my skin and energy.
Here’s what I’m hoping to get out of the next 30 days:
1.. For Clearer skin
2.. To wake up feeling energised with no need to hit the snooze button
3.. Reduce cravings for junk food and empty calories
4.. Increased energy levels, reduce anaemia symptoms
5.. To supplement my workouts, make the most of the training I do, value the training I do by respecting my body and what I put into it, fuelling well for training, improved performance
So whenever my willpower begins to subside, I’ll come back to this post and remember why I’m doing this!
I’ll also be keeping a diary – I bought a notebook especially for Whole 30 to write down what I eat each day, how I felt, my moods and inspiration! I’ve also taken all my measurements; not because I want them to change. I just want to know be able to know if they do change!
I’m sure I’ll be sharing all my cooking concoctions over on Instagram so join me there if you are interested – ellelinton – but I’ll be posting about my Whole 30 here every 10 days so look out for my post on days 1 – 10 next week!
