Whole30 Complete!

Total weight loss: 13.8 lbs
Total inches loss: 17.0

(Inches calculated from full body measurements.)

I am quite pleased with the changes to my body during this 30 days. I am not done, but the first 30 days has gone by a lot faster than I thought it would, with a lot of ups and downs. The cravings were hard, as well as trying to see how my body adjusted to the foods I was eating. I know my activity level is way too low and I need to find ways to increase that to continue to lose weight. I am disappointed that my skin hasn't really cleared up much, which was one of the big things I was hoping for. I am sleep a lot better, I have more energy and my stress level has gone down. I have more patience and don't lose my temper as often. I don't crave a lot of bad things anymore and what I do I think is not really a craving but remembering how good they were. I am worried about cheating and how my body will react to those foods if I try to eat them but I am sure I will indulge in something off the list some time soon just to see. I also need to work on trying out more recipes and types of food. I am getting in a rut, but I got my Primal books in the mail and there are tons of tasty looking recipes in there.

I may continue to post on this blog through the end of the month, but only when I make something new. I won't post my meals of leftovers and breakfasts of fried eggs, you've seen that enough already. Eventually I will move and start a Primal blog, or just stop blogging, I have not decided yet.

But in all, this was a very positive experience, I am glad I did it and I learned a lot about myself, my body and food.

  1. Hi,
    I wanted to bring to your attention a free tool I recently created - the Home & Travel Workout Of the Day (WOD) Generator.

    It's great for busy people - like those that frequently travel for business (which is why I created it for myself) - or for those that can't get to the gym - like busy moms.

    It will randomly choose from hundreds of home and travel friendly workouts - no equipment and no gym needed, and it has a built in timing function for Tabata, HIIT intervals or just a plain old stopwatch. It's a free tool, nothing to install or download, and I think your readers may find it useful. It works on any smartphone, tablet, Windows, or Mac - but there's no app to download or install. You'll be up and running in seconds.

    It can be found at:

    This Travel WOD generator is free, and will always be free - no ads, no pop-ups, no annoying demand for an email address.

    If you think this would be of use for your readers, would you consider posting a link on your blog, or maybe in any "resources" pages you may have?

    This is also a great option for days when the weather prevents getting to the gym.

    Thanks in advance,
