My thyroid is out of whack, and my body just feels like shit. So my family has decided to put our money where our mouth is and do the Whole.30 diet/lifestyle for, you guessed it, 30 days. This lifestyle is restrictive, y’all, and I will likely be very grumpy for the next 30 days. But I’m doing it because I need to make a change. Matthew is starting to want to eat what we eat, and I eat like shit. How can I tell him he can’t have tortillla chips (or worse, French fries) when I’m munching away on them? It’s rude. It’s appalling. It needs to stop.
Tomorrow, on February 7, 2013, I will be starting the Whole.30 lifestyle.
Today, I go out with a bang.
To hold myself accountable, I will do my best to log every.single.item that crosses my lips on a daily basis. Goodbye grains, dairy, soda (sniff sniff), sugar, etc. Hello (again – because we have done this before and very successfully, I might add!) natural meats, veggies, and limited fruits (good thing I LOVE berries!).
Because of my never-ending thyroid issues (and they’re not that bad, but they refuse to stabilize with medication), we are taking this a bit further with also eliminating eggs and some spices (the other things they tell you to limit for autoimmune conditions are on my “do not like” list anyway) as well as nuts, seeds, and pineapple.
This is a needed change. It is time. It’s time for things to be working again within my body.
Here we (well… I) go!
