Food: All the things
It may be the first day of the New Year, but it’s also the last day of eating whatever I want. Or rather, crap. My husband and I are officially embarking on the Whole30 plan tomorrow. For the next 30 days, we won’t eat sugar, gluten, dairy or legumes. Farewell bread, wine, and cheese. We dedicated today to recovering from last night (yep, we stayed up until 9!) and doing some shopping and meal prep. I bought the whole produce section at the shiny new Whole Foods 365. I can already taste the sadness.
To get in the spirit of our healthier lifestyle, I started my day with a special New Year WOD at Crossfit. (WOD is just a grosser, quicker way of saying “Workout of the Day.”) We had to do a million “Man-Makers” which make burpees seem like fun. We also did some sets of bench press, and I mostly like that lift because it gives me context to legitimately ask someone “What do ya bench?”
So tonight we’ll heat up the last of the taquitos, finish the open bottles of wine, and go to sleep dreaming of ghee and sweet potatoes. Tomorrow, it’s the start of a new way of eating. I’m excited for the challenge, although a little nervous about all the planning and cooking it will require.
