Wow this weekend went by fast! I thought for sure I was going to get this post up yesterday! Well, here we are Tuesday, already!! I might have mentioned I was starting another round of the Whole30 on Sunday, if I didn’t then I am sorry. I am on Day 3 already and feeling great!! Since I am doing the Whole30 again all my meals for the next 4 weeks will be whole30 approved as well.
Main reasons why I am doing another round of the Whole30:
1.) low energy
2.) tired all the time
3.) bloated + gas + stomach issues
Almost immediately after eating non-paleo food I would feel the effects. My stomach would be extremely bloated, gas (sorry but it is true, this is reality!!), lethargic, and just in general having no motivation to get up and get things done (except for the obvious: my son and running). I was just tired of being tired! There was 1 day last week where I actually took a 2+ hour nap during the middle of the day!! I hardly ever take naps!! I think that was the point where I realized I needed to get back on the Paleo wagon again! To me enjoying the non-paleo foods is not worth it! Now on occasion I can handle it, but not on a daily basis!
Exceptions to my Whole30 (pretty much the same as the last round):
1.) running fuel: chews/gels/ Nuun
2.) 1/2 + 1/2 (maybe not daily)
3.) Iced Pumpkin Spice Lattes (Surprisingly, these don’t give me any issues 🙂 ) Love this time of year!!

(Would appreciate some feedback on these questions, my feelings won’t get hurt if you say no or don’t answer at all!)
1.) Regarding my Monday Food prep posts: Do you miss my grocery lists I used to provide on here or is it that you could care less what I buy at the grocery store?
2.) Whole30: Would you want weekly updates regarding food, recipes, etc or daily reports or again, could care less (that you think I am crazy even for doing this Whole30 for a 2nd time around)?
3.) Open discussion: anything that I haven’t covered in my blog that you want to see or are curious about, or could care less ( you already share quite a bit of your life, I pretty much know every time you have a BM)?
Thank you for any feedback you give me!!! I love you all!
