Saturday will be the end of my first whole30!  I kind of lost steam about 10 days ago and I’ve had a couple of glasses of wine over the past week.  We have a wedding to attend on Saturday and we know that there won’t be anything to eat for us so we are trying to phase things in early.  I’m trying gluten today and so far all is well.  When we tried dairy we were both sick for a couple of days so we are keeping it cut out!

We are restarting another strict 30 starting February 10 (even though it mostly feels like it has become a lifestyle and we plan on staying paleo for good) if anyone is interested in buddying up!  Preparation is the key!

@KelannaDC:  I just can’t wait to see how much I lost!  I’m thinking around 10-15 pounds!  But I have been training for a half marathon.

@KelannaDC:  Go you!! I completed my whole30 in October and felt amazing just as you said. My recommendation would be to incorporate exercise immediately – I didn’t get around to doing so until the last week and it really hurt my overall progress. However, I ended up losing 9 pounds total. Also, try to be really good when it’s over because I totally went over the cliff and now am trying to scramble back up 🙁

@KelannaDC:  That’s awesome! Congratulations on the success! I’m doing paleo/primal, which isn’t the same, but similar in many ways, and I can say I’m experiencing the same pros you are! It’s pretty great.

@KelannaDC:  Primal allows dairy, dark chocolate, and red wine in moderation. Those are three of my favorite things, so I pretty much decided if I was going to give up a lot, I’d want to keep at least those haha.

@KelannaDC:  I do crossfit which might be a bit hard on your knees at first at least but I do highly recommend it if it’s at all possible for you. Otherwise, I would DEFINITELY start weight lifting – I’ve never felt or looked better than when I started building some muscle. If you can find a good crossfit gym in your area I would go in even just to talk to a trainer (they usually offer free intro sessions) and they could maybe help you with some suggestions in regards to your knees. Do beware, though, because not all trainers are equal and you don’t want to mess with something as important as knees 🙂

I have been trying to get myself to do a Whole30 for a while now since I have Crohn’s disease and I’m already gluten and dairy free. Well, I am SUPPOSED to be gluten and dairy free…. it’s hard especially when your FI likes all the same crappy foods you do and neither of you have any self control…. but all of your progress is inspiring!
