The first trimester of my pregnancy was pretty rough. Since then I've been wanting to do a Whole30. It's been calling to me and I know it would help me to feel my best. But I kept putting it off...
"January", I said. But January 1 came and went...
Then I won a copy of It Starts With Food from Brooklyn Fit Chick's blog. Still, I put it off...
Recently It Starts With Food won best general paleo book in the first ever #PaleoChat Awards. A sign? Still, I said: March 1st.
Lately I've had a bit of stress in my life. Now I know most people deal with stress on a daily basis, but I'm one that keeps my life pretty low-stress. But right now on top of my normal life of homeschooling, blogging, wanna-be-farming we're also getting the house ready to sell. We're living under construction and with a tighter budget than usual. Plus, you know, I'm pregnant and my energy levels just aren't anywhere near what I'm used to.... I could go on, but you get the picture: life's been hectic lately.
I really feel like now is the time that I could benefit from getting my nutrition RIGHT. I'm always the first to tell people not to wait for Monday, January 1st, or whenever. "Start now!" I happily advise. So, I'm listening to my own advice and not waiting until March 1st; I'm starting my Whole30 now!
If you're not familiar with The Whole30 I highly recommend you read It Starts With Food. You can also find the basic "rules" here.
Follow me on Instagram if you'd like to see what I'm eating.
Have you ever done The Whole30? Doing it now? Want to join me?!
