whole 30 {week 1 recap}

The first full week of Whole 30 is in the books.  Actually I'm a third of the way through since I have completed 10 days!! I am already noticing some Non Scale Victories.  If you aren't familiar with the Whole30 Program, you are not suppose to weigh yourself for the entire 30 days.  The reason for this is because it's not about weight loss.  If I were to look at the scale and see that I hadn't lost weight,
I might overlook some of the other great things that are happening with body.  

Most people feel like they have a hangover or what lots of people call "the carb flu" during the first few days.  Surprisingly, I never really felt bad.  I had a few little headaches during the day, but I think they were mainly because I was hungry.  On Day 6 and 7 I was really struggling though.  All I wanted to do was take a nap.  In fact, I did take a nap both of those days and went to bed around 9pm.  Day 8 my energy really started to pick up and by Day 10 I was really starting to feel good! I can't wait to see how I feel by Day 30!!
