Right along with almost everyone in the world, January brings a great time to reset, reevaluate and make changes for a better lifestyle. For me, January brings goals of purging my house, bettering myself as a mom and of course, eating healthier. I’ve actually been proud of how much I kept it together over the winter so far, as I usually become much more lax when the bathing suits are packed up. But I really didn’t give up too much until the last couple of weeks. I can say, though, that I feel crappy. Eating all the fun food is a great time, until your pants are tight and your skin looks like a teenager again. So, just like last year, I’m doing a January Whole30! If you haven’t been here before, check out where we did our first Whole30 and our results. If you haven’t done it before, I highly encourage you to be strict and really commit to the full 30 days. I already know the foods I’m sensitive to, after completing it a couple time and can really customize my plan a bit more now. I have a 3 nights that I will be eating out for events this month and will just do my best then!
Most of these links go to my Pinterest board. I recommend following the board and pinning the recipes to a specific board you create. This will make it easier to find each day. I also keep this post open on my phone so I can easily check back to it.
