Grrrr. That scale. Oh, how I hate it. In fact, I have avoided it like the plague for a very long time—about a year now, at least. And I know…when I get on that thing? It’s going to make me feel awful. So why am I doing it now? Because it’s time for a complete body reset. And that’s why I’m completing my second Whole30! I’m actually on Day 3 right now!
What is the Whole30? It’s a complete reset of your psychology and physical body around food. That’s the simple answer.
According to the creators of the Whole30, “It’s not hard. Beating cancer is hard. Having a baby is hard.” Plus, some other things….but completing a Whole30 is not hard—well, I am sure they mean in comparison to those other “truly” hard things. But, my friends, I’m just going to tell you: The Whole30 IS hard. I don’t have a single friend (except my husband) who will complete it with me.
The Whole30 is difficult because you are breaking patterns and habits and changing your body’s chemistry in that short period of time. It’s a MENTAL thing for sure. And if you are addicted to sugar—well, I’ll just say, that for many folks, it’s a PHYSICAL thing too.
