Whole 30 Day 12

I thought I’d have so much more time to sit and write about my Whole 30 experience this month and it’s already Day 12! Time is going by quicker than I feared, but not because the Whole 30 plan is “no big deal.” It’s taken a lot of effort, daily, if not hourly, but it’s now becoming a new normal. And more importantly, it’s giving me the time and space I needed to give to so many other things!

Whole 30 Day 4

Completing a Whole 30 doesn’t have to be as daunting, scary, or difficult as you imagined. I put off completing my first program for almost a year before I really understood that I was craving food FREEDOM more than I was craving FOOD. On Day 4, I share my experience thus far and some of my favorite meal ideas.

Everything I Learned on Day 1 of My First Whole 30

I love enjoying my food, but I don’t love when I look forward to certain foods (or drinks) more than other parts of my day, when I look to them for comfort or distraction, or spend more energy and time debating on whether or not to have them than it takes me to write a post like this. I’m so excited to start this Whole 30 journey and share it with you!

Every Reason I'm Doing the Whole 30 - and it's NOT to Lose Weight

About a year or two ago, I “hated” the idea of the Whole 30. It was too strict, too temporary, unrealistic, and unnecessary. Plus, I didn’t really “want” to lose weight at the time, so it didn’t apply to me.

Fast forward to a few months ago, I listened to the stories, I researched the science, and I understood that completing an actual Whole 30, even though it can result in weight loss for some people, was really about so much more.

Preparing for My First WHOLE30 This Summer

I write this post with a lot of emotion because regardless of what I look like or what YOU think I look like or what YOU think I eat, I am frustrated. I'm frustrated when I don't know what I "can" or "should" eat so I'll feel my best. I'm frustrated when I feel like I should pass on something and I give in and eat it anyway (and then am annoyed because of it)...

Sometimes you just need to DO THE THING!

And I feel like at this point in my life, my health, and my career, it's time to just DO THE THING. And I'm completing my first WHOLE 30 with the intention of releasing the eating habits that I feel "addicted to" and to figure out exactly which foods I'm sensitive to with a proper reintroduction plan (more on that later).

The Hardest Part About Being a Health Coach (It's Not What You'd Think)

Sometimes my clients are inconsistent or we disagree. But that’s not the hardest part about what I do. I became certified as a health counselor many years ago because it's in my SOUL to help others figure out this absolutely crazy, confusing, and contradicting world of natural wellness and nutrition. It is confusing. I've changed my mind, my perspective, my programs and offers because I learned more. And here’s what I found.
