My Pre-Whole30 Diet

So...here's something funny!  I grabbed an old notebook out of my office to write down some notes for an upcoming CycleBar class and came across a few pages in it that had some interesting things written down in it.  So at one point, I was keeping a food journal and keeping track of what I ate every day.  This is something I've done off/on for years, but have never done it consistently.

Here's what I found:
Crazy right????  I was shocked.  Pre-Whole30, I thought I was eating pretty healthy but this is evidence that I wasn't eating healthy.  AT. ALL.  Tons of grains and sugar and I'm lacking protein, fats & veggies.  (Where are the veggies, for goodness sake--there's none???)  This is just an example of the Standard American Diet (SAD) that I've been working hard to refrain from since our Whole30 journey began in 2015.  I was a tired mom (to just Dylan at the time) and honestly not very confident in myself.  I thought if I monitored what I ate, worked out 1-2x times a week (maybe), and took a vitamin, that all of that would help lead me to be the confident, energetic mom I knew I was meant to be and that Dylan and Dustin deserved as well.  
With Whole30, I have been able to find my own food freedom and eat to fuel my body instead of eating all of this crap to give my mind that short-lived rush. I eat more than what was on these pages, and always try to include a protein, fat and veggies in every meal.  That snowballed into my love of fitness, personal development, finding a tribe of woman that show mutual love & support to each other, working on my passions every day and paying it forward to others. It all just started with food!  Crazy to think how such a simple elimination "diet" has helped changed my life in so many ways.

*If you want to feel this way too...I'll be hosting a new Whole30 Group Coaching Session in January.  Email me at: coachemilynichols@gmail.com for more info.

  2. In any case, in the event that you begin with no less than a free concession to how to help and bolster one another, it will go far to helping both of you diminish your counting calories trouble rating and lead rapidly to simpler and increasingly effective weight loss. weight loss method chaktty
