Happy day two of the Whole 30! Holy sleep cycles! This is my biggest non-scale victory so far, and it’s only day two. Last night, I got the best night of sleep I have had since coming home for the holidays. To be honest, I cannot recall the last time I got NINE hours of sleep–that’s right, nine! I even went into “deep” sleep for the longest time since getting my Fitbit for Christmas.
One of my New Year’s Intentions is to improve my sleep hygiene again. Go to bed and wake up at consistent hours, no phone time before bed, stretch before bed, sleep in a dark room, etc.
Obviously, my time to bed and wake needs to improve. I am taking my intentions one step at a time, though.
I am tackling a Whole30 right now after all.
Speaking of which…
Day one is in the books.
It was more difficult than I remember. My head hurt. I had an icky taste in my mouth all day. My gums hurt. I was beyond tired. And hungry. All day. I made it though. Like Melissa said,
Take it one day, one meal, one bite at a time”
This time around, however, I have support, and that has already made allllll the difference in the world. My mom is on it with me, my best friend is going to join me when she gets back to the states, and my wonderful boyfriend is so supportive and encouraging.
I didn’t have this support two years ago and I am so so thankful. If you haven’t told anyone or reached out to at least one person yet, do so. Extra support is very valuable. Whole30 even has an online forum you can hop on for an added support community.
