Whole 30 Update: I See The Light!

Howdy Adventurers,

You missed my posts?  You did didn’t you?

**hears crickets** o_0

Well, for all of you who did (yay for my one reader!), you were probably wondering how The Whole 30 journey is going. Welp, here is the latest updates! So sit back, grab some popcorn (no wait, that’s not Whole 30 approved. grab some, erm, beef jerky) and enjoy the post!

Today marks Day 25!  I see the light and it’s not a train! 😀

After a very rough start (like rough as meaning finding out “innocent” foods having offending ingredients and having to restart the program twice), I feel like I am in my groove now!

Here is a list of a quick noticeable results:

  1. My man pooch (and you women thought you were the only ones that had this!) has melted down considerably. I no longer look like a miniature Jabba The Hutt.
  2. My skin is clear. No more pimples as of now.
  3. My nails are growing like crazy. I will be soon be like Wolverine and use my claws to cut my grass-fed meats for dinner with them.
  4. Eating grass-fed meats is truly a blessing when one becomes committed to doing so.
  5. By God’s grace, I have learned that I am stronger than my food cravings and sugar is no longer a master of me.
  6. The Whole 30 lifestyle is sustainable for me and empowering because I know the value of choice.
  7. I’m no longer a slave to bad foods and/or pseudo-foods disguised as healthy.

I’ll stop with seven now. Thanks for reading.

Have you considered doing the Whole 30? If so, why? If not, why not? Post your comments below.

What a powerful word.

Who isn’t affected by this word? You need food to survive thrive. We are bombarded with commercials about food. We think about what we will eat for the day. We grow food. We need it daily.

Is it no wonder that food is the catalyst for change?  When you stick a piece of food in your mouth, there is ALWAYS a hormonal response.  No one can deny that a small morsel of food can cause a backlash in the body.

You don’t believe me? Ask the person who is stricken with food allergies and say to them that food does not influence the body. Continue reading

If You Don’t Fine-Tune This Area In Training, You’ll Hate Yourself Later.

Adventurers, today will feature guest blogger Chris from Lift 2 Lose It on an important area that is vital to your training success. Chris, take it away (I always wanted to say that).

That first moment you set foot in a gym, is a special moment. It’s both exciting, nerve racking and even vomit-inducing. You quietly seek the approval of other gym-goers wanting to prove you have just as much right to be count as one of the elite. You see them lifting heavy and you think to yourself you can do that too. Continue reading
