I keep asking myself why in the world I am doing the September Whole30, I have never completed a Whole30. Ahhhhh
I keep telling myself, this time you will get to the finish line. I am in such a different situtation mentally, that I will finish this time no matter what. Also, I really want to kick my sugar habit and I think Whole30 is going to be perfect doing that for me.
So, why didn’t I complete the other two time. Well long story short the first round, I tried and lasted 11 days when I was care taking for my mother durning her throat cancer and it was bad, really bad. In and out of the hospital with a few extended stays, doctors appointments almost daily and to top it off I had hurt my shoulder at work and was fighting to get workers compensation all the while being the shuttle for 3 kids because the husband work graveyard most of the week. I wasn’t mentally prepared for Whole30 and probably really wasn’t in the right head space.
The second round only lasted 4 days, really!! I attempted the Whole30 right after I gave birth to my fourth child. I think it would have been better if I had waited a few more months, but I tend to jump in head first. I wasn’t physically able to prepare for the Whole30, I was exhausted and tired and homeschooling my other 3 children.
So now Whole30 attempt number 3 is going to take place September 2018 and I will succeed and hopefully be able to kick my sugar addiction or at least curve the sugar cravings. I am so excited to see what happens, to see how I feel, to see if I get that mental boost from removing sugar.
Why do Whole30 and not just stick to Keto? I have found myself on the Keto feeling great, sleeping better but I have replaced processed sugar with “natural” sugars or Keto safe sugars and MY ultimate goal for MY health is to not need that replacing feeling. I want to have a treat because it just sounds good or its a treat, not I need something sweet and baked.
I will be planning a whole menu for myself and I will share once its done.
Looking forward to September Whole30.
