whole30: day 30

Today is my last day of the whole30 and I can’t really believe it. Was it 30 days ago that I started this ridiculousness or has it already been 30 days. I go back and forth with it feeling like forever and flying by.

I didn’t expect to become a believer of the paleo lifestyle or to ever want to eat any specific way. I like cake, dammit. Why would anyone want to deprive themselves of so many delicious treats? Those people are nuts, right?

Wrong. Those people are surely onto something. No, I didn’t loose a ton of weight and become invisible (I also don’t workout) but I am healthier. I sleep better and I feel better. I haven’t had headaches and my TMJ is way better. In fact, my jaw has only hurt twice. Which is crazy; it used to hurt at least twice a week.

So I think I’m going to stay with it. No, I’m not going to be a psycho about it and never eat any treats or pasta ever again, but I’m not going to do it on the reg. This certainly hasn’t been easy for me, but when I was in Trader Joe’s yesterday buying snacks I looked at the cookies and just walked away. You guys, that never happens. It may have taken 30 days, but I think I’ve finally realized that I can and should live without (as much) sugar.

Wish me luck…

***Also, head on over to The Vault Files and see what I have in my makeup bag (all natural of course)!
