"Failing to prepare is preparing to fail", hence why my fridge is now full of more tupperware and good food then I think it's ever had. ***
On the advice of my sports therapist, today sees the start of my changing relationship with food. It's not about losing weight or feeling crap about how I look, or any desire to start weighing out my food. It's about taking the time to understand what it is I'm fuelling my body with and seeing if by living off the good stuff for a bit, I can help eliminate some of the problems I put up with on a daily basis — bad skin, restless sleep, headaches, afternoon dips in energy, muscle fatigue and stress within the body 😴 It would also be nice to see a performance boost in the gym, but let's get through the next four and a bit weeks first.
For those interested, I'll be following the @whole30 for the next 30 days. Having read this rather comprehensive book end to end, the plan is about resetting the body by removing known detrimental-food groups from the diet. So no sugar, alcohol, grains or pulses, dairy, bread and sadly, no peanut butter 🥜 There's some others but you get the idea. After 30 days I can start reintroducing the same food groups one at a time to best determine what works for me. With this in mind, you'll see a lot less ice-cream and cocktail posts, and maybe a few more salads, soups and sprizaled veg! 🥦🍅🥕
I'll be using Instagram as a motivator for the days when I can't be arsed to let a book dictate my food choices, and also as a timeline to monitor how far I've come in the time. So here's to the whole30 and what's in store over the next 30 days! I'll be raising a whiskey toast on day 31! 🥃
