The Whole30 days 1-5

I am currently finishing up Day 5 of the #Whole30!  Whoo hoo!  To be honest, it hasn’t been bad.  I haven’t been that person jumping for joy over the evolution, but I can say I haven’t been ready to rip out someone’s throat or have an emotional meltdown because of a sugar withdrawal.  I only had one incident where I found myself inhaling Cheerio fumes from my kid’s cereal bowl.  But once I regrouped, reminded myself why I was doing this I carried on with my day as per normal.

In the fitness department, I have implemented a workout regime.  It is an easy program but because of my fibromyalgia easing my way back into training is the smarter choice.  In the past, I would have jumped in with two feet first, gone through a couple of days of stiffness/grumbling and then carried on, but those days are done.  Though this new ideology is a bit tough on the ego, I have been pleasantly surprised how well I felt afterwards.  Yoga and mindfulness have also become a staple as part of my routine.

I guess the only thing I can say about the first week is that planning was my saving grace.  If I hadn’t put a bit of a menu together and done my grocery shopping, I might not have been as successful thus far.

I am going to keep doing what I am doing and see where it takes me.

More to come.  🙂
