Eating Whole 30 during your Birthday Month (insert eye roll emoji).

I mean I would be completely lying if I said “Yes, it was so easy, I am so motivated by being healthy and feeling great that it was not a problem skipping my birthday cake…” (Insert eye roll emoji). I turned 29 today, too close to 30 for my comfort, but I am going to rock it! Our family has a tradition where we eat at someones house two Sundays a month and we celebrate all of the birthdays from that month, it’s always a blast. You will slowly learn my family could be, well should be, a realty show. My precious Mom took the time and made an entire extra pot of Whole 30 chili for the three of us that are doing that this month, and it was delicious. BUUUUT that does not override the fact I stared at cornbread, cake, and taco soup while drooled like a dog.
 
Who says you have to celebrate your birthday on your actual birthday, you bet ya girl is going to kill some Chucks sushi and a cookie cake at the end of this month!

This attached timeline is spot on. Whole 30 is not easy, it requires a ton of planning and more than once I have said, bump this I just won’t eat until my crockpot meal is ready. I have been chugging Kumbucha because it has some carbonation and its very good for you. I have already lost 3 pounds (totally not the reason I am doing it, but it is 100% a plus). I am better with sticking with the same 5 or 10 recipes and plans because it is just easier for me.
 
I definitely want to eat everything I see and only want to kind of punch people in the face but overall my body feels great. I am not bloated or foggy and I believe eating this way is boosting my immune system. I want to continue a form of this even when February gets here! If you guys have any questions let me know!
