I know vacation season is drawing to a close for some of us. However, this Whole9 article, Anatomy of a Vacation, by Melissa Hartwig is worth tucking away for future reference. It's really sound advice of how to plan for and cope with the inevitable nutrition temptations we all face during our vacations and weekend getaways. Did I do this on my recent vacation? Not really. I do wish I had read this beforehand. Maybe I would not have gone off the rails quite so much. However, recently, at a local restaurant, I took two bites of a dessert and decided it was most definitely not worth it. I put my fork down, friends! For me, that's personal growth.
This Whole9/Whole30 thing is a process for most of us. If you want to give it a try, the Whole9 site is sponsoring another group Whole30 beginning on August 1. I plan to do it again because I gain more insight into my eating habits each time I do it. This is a good time to try it because you will find lots of support on the website and on blogs such as NomNom Paleo and The Clothes Make the Girl. Thousands of people across the country will be participating. Also, you can talk to me, Cliff, Kristi, Sharon, or anyone in the Joseph family (Felice, Ray, Ike and Brittany). We've all completed at least one Whole30 and lived to tell the tale.
I'm thrilled that so many people have purchased It Starts with Food. You all push your bodies so hard during wods. Your bodies deserve quality fuel to get you through those wods. If you think you might want to start on August 1, leave a comment.
