My Whole30 Journey Week Two

Hi Everyone!

Week two on my Whole30 Journey and I’m happy to report that things have been going well.  I feel better and better everyday and I’ve noticed an increase in my motivation and concentration.  Although a bit of a challenge . . . I’ve realized I can go out to dinner with family, friends, business associates and not miss a glass of wine or a margarita.  I’ve continued #WorkingMyBody throughout this process and have noticed I feel stronger and have more definition in my muscles and mid section. What I want to emphasis to everyone is this is “doable”, you can do this!  I’m here for you too! Just send me an email or tweet me with your questions.

Do you want to see my Whole30 Week Two food log & exercise diary? Here it is . . . Hope it motivates and inspires you!

The sugar cravings were so much less today!

Week two down, half way though my Whole30 journey!

I know in this journey we are not alone and, I know so many Whole30 completers have experienced much of what I did . . . It’s quite an incredible experience.  Grateful to make it this far.
