Day 8 of Whole30

A new year! A new journey! Happy New Year everyone. And this will be my motto this year – a new journey!

So, as curious minds want to know how my Whole30 program is going – I’ve lost nearly 3 lbs. I started black coffee on December 30 and that was also the last day I had any alcohol. I’ve had an underlying headache that seems to come and go, which I’ve learned it’s a “sugar withdrawal” headache. Never have I heard of such until now.

Resolve and resistance are the words that come to mind for myself particularly. When my physician told me 18 months ago that I couldn’t eat 20+ things due to my diabetes, I scoffed at her, went home and started exercising. I didn’t join a gym or hire a personal trainer. I started walking and using that “clothes hanger” of a recumbent bike that lives in my spare bedroom. By June 2017, I’d lost nearly 40 lbs and my A1-C came down to 5.4 – the normal range! Resolve!

Truly the answer to bettering ourselves is all in our mind. One must resolve to do something about it. It’s as simple as that.

So what have you resolved to do for yourself this year? Exercise more? Eat better? No one will prioritize you more than yourself. It’s not being selfish. It’s being generous. The better you take care of yourself, the more you will have to offer to others and the world around you.
