So I am in for another Whole30! Whole 30 is simple - eat real food (meat, veggies, fruit, nuts and other healthy fats), prepare it yourself as much as possible and avoid a few non-negotiables (gluten, legumes, sweeteners of all kinds, alcohol and dairy). Move daily and stay off the scale. Eat 3 full meals and don't snack!
I have a few goals I am setting for myself and I am adding them here as an extra bit of accountability!
- Eat breakfast every day. This means planning ahead and getting out of bed. I hope this helps me get back on track in two ways...out of bed on time AND starting the day with a healthy breakfast which will lead to less snacking/poor choices later in the day.
- No drinking - even though this is one of the rules, I want to state this as my own personal goal. We have been visiting lots of wineries and enjoying a lot of local Virginia wine, but that comes with a lot of empty calories AND leads me to snacking on things I know I shouldn't eat. :) So here it is. No drinking.
- Plan meals and shop with a purpose - throwing all the things in my cart is when I throw in the junk. :) Adding a meal plan will help me make better choices too. This also means cooking in bulk/larger portions and having leftovers on other days. Today I am making NomNom Paleo's Cracklin Chicken to have some ready-to-go protein for a few meals this week. Also, it will be delicious during football tonight for dinner instead of going out for wings!
So there it is - stay tuned for lots of food photos as I move through the next 30 days!
