It’s T-1 for my second Whole 30 now. That meant it was time to get the measurements – circumferences and weight. It’s pretty miserable reading to be honest. No good wallowing and throwing myself a pity party, things needed doing and Janathon needed completing.
For Janathon today, it was house clearing, including walking up and down three flights of stairs with heavy loads several times, and dashing, fully laden, into charity shops to declutter. I think clutter breeds in our house. Another sweat broke out, and that was before we went to Sainsbury’s in a mad dash to get something for lunch and top up with veggies for the week ahead. I feel that my sitting down to blog has been well earned!
As my Whole 30 looms tomorrow, I thought I’d take a few minutes to explain why I want to go through 30 days of strict paleo style eating. For those who aren’t sure what Whole 30 is, essentially it is stripping out all refined sugars, processed foods, legumes, grains and dairy for 30 days. You’d think that wouldn’t leave you with much to eat, but actually it isn’t as hard as it sounds.
My reasons for doing another Whole 30 aren’t massively dissimilar to my first go at it – the control over my sugar cravings features high, and weight loss would be nice. I just feel like my diet and spending on my food has got completely out of control and I have lost the off switch.
Anyway, my “before” photo has been taken, so let’s see what 30 days later looks like!
Does clutter breed in your house too, or are you good at keeping on top of it all? I am not good at putting things away, which I don’t think helps.
