January Reboot: Whole30 #3

Ok folks, it’s Jan 3.  If you’re like me, you got on the scale this morning and cringed.  Clothes are just a bit tighter, energy levels are down, and wouldn’t some maple syrup-drowned paleo waffles be awesome right about now, even though you just finished your healthy breakfast a couple of hours ago??

Time for the proverbial January kick in the ass.

Time to throw away or freeze the paleo goodies (or the ones your friends brought over), and reset.

Time to give the maple syrup, coconut sugar, and local raw honey a rest.

It’s time for another Whole30.

I know, I know – you were pretty good over the holidays – you avoided the egg nog and milk-laden hot cocoa (mostly because you knew what  it would do to your stomach), and you only ate one or two regular cookies at the holiday party – but I bet if you’re like me, the portion sizes kept creeping up, and the Paleo goodies were sitting right there on the counter and then there was the wine…. yeah.  We won’t talk about the wine.

So, what’s done is done, and it’s time to get back into those good habits you had before all of the holiday crazy kicked in.  Back to regular exercise – maybe even adding some new ones, and kicking the sugar dragon’s ass one more time.

Who knows, maybe we’ll find some new favorite recipes we can enjoy all year long.

Who’s with me?

  1. I’m with you, I think. lol. I know you gave me an out, but you’ve done this for me in the past when I needed it, and I can tell you really need it this time. I’ll always be at your side to help you along. Count me in.

  2. Reblogged this on Paleo Marine and commented:
    Sherry is starting her third Whole30, and I’ll be starting it with her. I don’t feel like I need a reset or will gain anything from this other than perhaps getting back to basics and cutting out any additional sugar that may have crept into our Paleo lifestyle, but more importantly, if she is doing this, I will do it with her. She was there for me when we did our first. I will be there for her on this one. Wish us luck!
