Today was a good day! I decided to try the Whole 30 plan with some of my co-workers. I was a little apprehensive at first. I mean, no cookies and no wine? Also, I'm not trying to lose weight, but then I discovered the plan is not about weight loss, but about making better food choices. In the end, I decided that I can successfully stick to the plan for thirty days (yes, even without cookies and wine), particularly if it involves better health. We only get one body so we have to do what we can to preserve it, right? And of course, my good choice has to contend with leftover holiday snacks sitting around the office. What's a good challenge without an extra course?
Currently, I am on day 3 of the plan and have packed my compliant meals and snacks each day. So far I feel great, but I will check in again later in the month! Sometimes things seem harder than they actually are and often, those are the things we need to do to make progress. I love my sweets, but I know this plan is temporary and I also know it is good for me. How great would it be if we made better choices every day no matter how challenging?
