I will tell you about my #whole30
month. 💡 my why - i just wanted another chellange towards health. 🥬 by that time i was about 3-4 months on gluten-free and dairy-free diet due to my newly diagnosed hashimoto's. so the transition wasn't very hard, but...
🎂 my biggest challenge was sugarless diet for 30 days!
💡 i like to cook veggies, i love broccoli, cabbage, i got used to nut milk, i could go no grains with sweet potatoes, nuts and seeds. i needed sweets, so i ate quite a lot of dates.
i don't eat red meat, so i managed to eat fish and seafood, eggs, which gave protein, and nuts - a lot of nuts.
🥬 first several days i felt not good at all: stressed, limited, "fancy shmency", but i continued. i started to feel better from week 2 i think. lighter, better, faster. 💡i did 28 days. 2 more day and i would finish my chellange, but no!... 28 days. i guess the whole thing with covid, uncertainty, probably stress... you know. just to not blame myself ;)
🎈 recently i talked with a coach. i told i lack self discipline, and made those 28 days as example. she said: 28 days! wow! great job! it is 98% of success! it is really good!
and i thought to myself: what a beautiful...
what a beautiful approach to progress! count not by whole tasks, challenges. but by the progress you made, and the next time i probably do 99% or 100%. and to be honest, it easier to think about next time to do 100%, then think about failure and not to come back to try again! what a genius idea!
besides that, i will tell you about after diet: i didn't introduce one product at a time, i came back go everything at once. i allowed myself chocolate, sourdough with pomegranate juice (well, still alcohol-free), even icecream!... how bad i felt i must confess!
headache, bloating, puffy face, fatigue, low mood...
🥬 i am back to healthy: whole food, plant based, alcohol-free diet. i continue with gluten and dairy free diet, but eat quinoa, buckwheat, chocolate. and drink a lot of water! 💧
