update

I’ve been doing really well with my eating choices since finishing my second whole30. Being able to be flexible and go out with friends and still make good choices, but not feel so bound to rules that I won’t let loose a little bit. This weekend I had some friends come stay with me and there was a lot of eating out and drinking and today I woke up and felt so exhausted. Eating garbage combined with alcohol is not a great combo for me. Today I got some froyo which was totes worth it, but I’m back on the cooking train. Cooking at home really is a huge part of the road to health.

I feel proud and somewhat surprised with myself that I’m able to adhere to this way of eating while still having some flexibility. In the past it’s been all or nothing. I’m pretty pleased with myself right now :>

It’s been about a week since I finished my second Whole30 and have been doing well with my dietary choices. I incorporated butter back in to the routine first and yesterday ate some bacon (added sugar), but with no noticeable ill effects which I’m pleased about!

It is a little hard to tell, though, because my skin is still breaking out. I’ve talked with my doctor and my gynecologist and we’ve all pinpointed the problem to be my iud. Super sucks. But I’m going to give my body some time to adjust and hope that the acne subsides. In the meantime, I’m still eating clean in an effort to not provoke it any more.

It feels good to be in control of my decisions around food. It’s not a place I’ve been to solidly before, but like I mentioned in another post, this second Whole30 allowed me to shift in a different way than I have in the past. I can continue to make healthy decisions about what I’m going to buy at the grocery store and (when the time comes) going out with friends. I’m in control and conscientious about what I’m putting in to my body and no longer am at the mercy of a lacking will power.

I will be posting less as I find it tedious to continue to log my food, but will still be around :]

Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touch the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.
