If you live under a rock, we have been following The Whole 30 guide since January 1. We started this program to use it as a detox from sugar and junk food, which we have found ourselves addicted to. If you haven’t already, read why we chose this program and what our plans are after the 30 days. The plan does not allow any of my “beloveds” – dairy and sugar. Therefore… we can’t have a little coffee with our cream. I don’t know about you coffee drinkers, but if you are used to warm brown coffee, it’s a little difficult to get used to drinking coffee hot and black. That’s where my little friend, Nutpods, a non-dairy creamer that is Whole 30 approved, comes in.
We are half way through this Whole 30 plan. 🎉 And, I’m checking in at the completion of week two because I said I would. And, trust me. You are all making me accountable. 🤗
The Whole 30 – The Completion of Week Two
This past week had many ups and downs. The physical detox symptoms were for the most part over. And with that, I mean I had no headaches and irritability like I did in the first week. But bouts of I-can’t-do-this-shit-any-longer reared its ugly head between both Deb and I. I’m being completely honest. There were two points this past week that I personally said out loud, “🖕🏼F*@k it. I’m done. I don’t care.” And then I thought of all of you. How could I possibly write these posts and get on Instagram and Facebook and tell lies. I mean, really, how would you know if I was telling the truth or not? 🤷🏼♀️ I could claim to be following the program while washing potato chips down the old hatch with a cold beer. But, me being me… there is no way. I cannot tell lies. So, YOU made me stick to it. And, I thank you. 😘
As promised, I’m checking in with you guys after the completion of week one of The Whole 30 plan. If you are new here, read why I decided to do a complete diet detox and why I chose this plan. By checking in each week, YOU are holding me accountable for this detox. 🤗 Yay, YOU!
Do you remember when I quoted the first sentence in The Whole 30 guide in last weeks post?
“It is not hard. Don’t you dare tell us this is hard. Quitting heroin is hard. Beating cancer is hard. Drinking your coffee black is. Not. Hard.” (The Whole 30 Guide) Continue reading
It’s all about the detox and my health plans this week, remember? Don’t worry. I don’t know if there is anything else to detox in my life, so this must be the last post on the detox subject. 🤷🏼♀️ So far this week, we started The Whole 30 program to help us detox from junk food. Read why we went with this guide. I wrote two more posts this week about detoxing your mind and, of course, why we need to detox our armpits that smell like a hog barn. 🐖 I thought I would conclude the week with why I, and maybe you, need Raw Organic Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar in our lives.
You all know that being 150 years old, different issues arise. I’ve chatted about this subject over on Instagram and had an OVERWHELMING response. It was a really hot topic. You guys……. true blue…. us mid-lifers have really stinky armpits. 😷
(Let me start this post off by saying, I’m not a medical doctor. I have not at all backed up this post with extensive medical research. I’m only sharing my own experiences and my own personal discussions I’ve had with friends. So, basically, don’t send the “you’re-not-a-doctor police” 👮🏼♀️ after me because, I know. I’m not claiming to be one.)
