We're going to give Whole 30 a try - One. More. Time. This time, I'm doing it along with the W30 community for some internet support. J has agreed to give it a go with me this time as well. I'm going to take the time to do the W30 worksheets, meal plan, and generally get on with it all!

My goals are:

1) To get my eating back under control
2) Fit back into my smaller sized clothes
3) Get my workout mojo back
4) To feel confident again
5) To feel more comfortable in my own skin

I'm trying very hard not to write "lose weight". I NEED to do that, but I need to set other goals - and ones with feeling.

I'm reading a book right (This Year I Will...) now that talks about setting goals with feeling attached to appeal to your emotional side of making habits. We'll see what happens!

A month later

Somehow, it's been a month since I posted. I haven't been doing my runs. No beating around the bush about it.

On our trip to Alaska, I did the 5.5 mile hike on the trip & a snorkel excursion for about an hour of water time. The hike was a bit rough on my body & I was exhausted when we got back. The surgeon said I may get more easily fatigued for a while, so I was kind of expecting it.

At lunch. I'd eat here every day if I could.

The leaves were HUGE!

Tongass National Forest hiking!
I'm beyond glad that we canceled our 2nd hiking excursion in Juneau (the day after the one in Skagway). I don't know that I would've been up to it.

The snorkeling in Ketchikan, I'd do it again in a heart beat. It was so good to put on a wetsuit and be in the open water again. I had a bit of my "normal" panic set in about being in the open water to swim, but once I calmed down, it was all good.

Next up is to figure out a realistic workout plan since I've obviously been not doing the run workouts as I scheduled. Especially with the heat in the mid-atlantic right now!
