30 days of only good, clean, wholesome, fresh food! Was it really that difficult? No, not really. Oh sure, I had my moments, but never once did I truly want to cheat. And I think I had the challenges that I did simply because I had so many toxins to release and that is always a painful process, at least in my experience. If I am being completely honest, the idea that since the 30 days has passed, in theory, I can eat whatever I want today. Of course this is true every single day. I have made the choice, and it is ALWAYS a choice, to not go back though. The thought of a cinnamon roll is somewhat tempting, but why would I purposely undo all the good I’ve done for the last 30 days? I wouldn’t, I won’t. It’s like Maya Angelou said, “When you know better, you do better.” I know better now. For the first time I truly understand all the damage I was doing to my body by eating foods that, while not horrible overall, still were making my body hurt and were not helping me in the ways they were claiming to.
I have an event coming up in a couple of weeks that involves company coming to town that always stresses me out. Because of this, I am going to continue to eat the Whole30 way until that time, do my best while said people are in town and then go back to eating completely cleanly after they leave.
So instead of the cinnamon roll I briefly considered, I decided to have my new favorite breakfast, which is sweet potato hash with onions and red pepper and ground turkey with a fried egg…super yummy and super satisfying!
