Well, it's been an interesting few months in my life. Not only do I work full time as the assistant manager at a kickboxing studio, but I was also involved in a 4 vehicle car accident (not caused by me). For the past 3.5 months I have been running from one appointment to the next to try and heal my back from the whiplash. This accident happened two days before my birthday. It is December 30th and I am still in a significant amount of pain every day. As you can well imagine, this situation makes it difficult for me to exercise. And when you're a kickboxing instructor, exercise is sort of your main activity.
I'll be perfectly honest, keeping up my good way of life and diet has fallen by the wayside. I may be a nutritional therapist, but I'm also still a human with emotions and these last few months have been difficult. But the beauty is, you can always start again. One thing that never does happen to me is that I lose sight of my goals, or that I lose hope or ambition. As long as you're alive you have the chance to start over new.
So, I'm starting over, and I'm inviting you to join me. On January 1st, I'm starting a Whole30.
The Whole30 is a clean eating program that allows you to learn the new habit of eating clean and learn how to stick with it. It takes about three weeks to form a new habit, so 30 days is an ideal time to form your habit and then stick with it.
The Whole30 website has a bunch of downloads available for your convenience. All you need is to click the button, and you will have all of the necessary information at your fingertips. Rules, Shopping Lists, Meal Plans, Seasonal Produce, Dining Guide, Travel Guide, you name it, they have it right HERE!!
Also, I will be posting regularly right here on my blog. Or you can follow me on Instagram. Just go and find me at "uterealfood4me". Have any questions? Send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's do this thing. It is always easier to do it with the support of a group, than all alone. :) Bring it on, 2018!
