Today is my first day of the Whole30 program and I am super excited! A few ladies and friends at my church have decided to join me and I am looking forward to all the great testimonials that we will have. If you are still on the fence about joining the challenge, come on, why not? I don’t think you will regret it. If you are feeling a little challenged in the kitchen and need some ideas, visit Here for some great suggestions. Don’t forget to take a before picture and don’t obsess over the scale. As a matter of fact, they recommend that you not step on the scale until the end of the 30 days. It really is not worth obsessing about the number on the scale, focus on how your clothes fit and how you are feeling. I am big on journaling, so if you are up to it, record changes in moods, energy level, emotional connection to foods that you didn’t realize you had over the next 30 days (what triggers eating when you are not really hungry, etc.). I made this yummy super easy crockpot chicken with baked sweet potatoes and roasted veggies today to start the Whole30. I sure hope you jump on the bandwagon!
