So here are the starting stats, reasons, and feelings of this whole30 lifestyle process. I know I say whole30 when I’m not actually doing it as a whole30 but changing my lifestyle completely. So here we go:
Who: 29 year old mother of 2, stay at home mom, runner, 5’10 184.6lbs, size 12 (that aren’t fitting particularly well right now)
Why: Because lately I’ve felt like crap both physically and emotionally related to my body. I’m tired of having to have certain foods or drinks throughout the day not because I genuinely want them but instead because I’m a slave to my physical and emotional cravings. I want to lose weight, not because I am trying to pick up a man and not because I want other people to think I’m attractive but because to me being overweight is that little hole in the Death Star. It’s the way that thoughts creep in about how I am lesser than others because I am “fat”. I want to workout because I have fitness goals other than losing weight.
And right now I feel horrible, my head is killing me (just a testament to how much I needed the sugar and caffeine detox) and I just want to crawl under a rock which thankfully is an option in about an hour!
So here are my before pictures, my raw, no makeup, taken by my 5 year old so I look like I have a double chin which I would never post on Facebook in a million year pictures. Like I said, I’ll post updated stats and pics on Mondays.
