Whole30-First 15 days

I started the Whole30 New Years Day.  For the last few months I've been feeling gross and all around unhealthy.  I'm hoping this "reboot" is what I need.  The plan is pretty restrictive, but I'm focusing on the good.  Trying to keep my eye on the prize.  In 30 days, I should feel better.

My goals:
  • Be less bloated.
  • Have more energy.
  • Reduce inflammation.  I have a lot aches and pains.  I'm hoping this will alleviate some of them.
How have the first 15 days been???  Pretty amazing.  The first week was tough.  I was SOOOO tired and I was stressed about what to eat.  I was so afraid I was going to screw up.  I also REALLY missed (still do) wine and coffee. You can have coffee but not the milk and sugar that makes coffee worth drinking.  I have had a couple cups mixed with coconut milk and cinnamon.  It's not bad, but not great. 

I have definitely had some ups and downs but so far, I'm really happy with the program.  At this point, I really don't see why I'd go back to eating the way I was before.  Except for wine.  Have I mentioned that I miss wine?  I do.  A lot.

As for my Whole 30 goals, I'm definitely way less bloated.  My clothes fit so much better, which is fabulous.  I'm starting  to get more energy and feel more productive.  It's hard to tell about the aches and pains.  I'm 5 days into triathlon training, so everything is kind of achy.

I'll check back in on the 31st and let you know how the rest of the month went.  It's all downhill from here!!
