Here We Go Again

Of course my friends and I would start a Whole 30 on National Margarita Day. Just our luck!

I have had a craving for some good, clean competition and when I mentioned doing a Whole 30 to my girlfriends they eagerly hopped on board! We each have events coming up that are motivating our challenge and I am so excited that we are holding each other accountable. Today marks DAY ONE.

Each Friday we are getting together during lunch and discussing how our week went as well as planning for the next. For this round I will also be keeping notes on my moods and how I feel. I have done it in the past and it is always so encouraging looking back on what I accomplished.

We all met up yesterday to meal plan, grocery shop, and meal prep. It was so fun talking over what we can and can’t have and looking over all the fun recipes. This plan excites me and I love the structure. My friend Megan and I have done the plan together before, but this is our friend Morgan’s first go at it. I could not be more excited for her and I love that we can all experience it together.

Tips for success:
  • Let people know you are doing this plan to help keep you on track and hold you accountable
  • Meal plan- This really helps you get organized for the week. Plan out all of your meals and make a list for the grocery store. Each week can be different depending on your schedule, so meal planning is key. 
  • Meal prep- Life saver. I try to cook all of my food Sunday evening after I get back from the grocery store. It cuts down so much of my time during the week and I don't have to sit and cook something when I'm STARVED. Plan and prep... you won't regret it. 
  • Research- go over everything you can and can't have. Become familiar with different ingredients. Make it fun! 
  • Have fun! I never think of this as a diet. It's a mind set and this plan and turned into my lifestyle (Paleo). You can choose to make it daunting or you can choose to love it! Loving it is way more fun:)
