Reflections: today I decided to borrow the truck, instead of bike commuting to NorCal – a wise choice, since I will be doing double workouts today. I felt so refreshed in class: no nags on my back, no soreness on my quads… And, after the workout, I did not feel like I wanted to take a nap (another sign that I am well-rested). Tomorrow is the last day of my first Whole30, and I’m looking forward to reaching that milestone, but I will continue this way of eating for (at least) another 30 days. I will have a re-cap post later, but I think my success in this process was in part due to the fact that the Whole30 has made things “simple.” I know what I can and cannot eat, and I eat a variation of the same dishes every single week. Our shopping trips and quick an easy, especially since we have a shopping list on Excel that we reuse each week.

Sleep: 8 hours

OVERALL: Excited. I just want to tell everyone: “hey! tomorrow is my last day of my Whole30!!!”
