Ladies and gentlemen, I started the Whole 30 again. Again. This is probably the thirteenth time I have attempted this little gig because my sweet tooth always manages to get the best of me. Yesterday was day two. They say that day one usually goes exceptionally because you’re so excited and choosing carrot sticks over breadsticks seems like no big deal… right?
However, on days two and three you experience the ‘hangover.’ The several times I have attempted the Whole 30 I made it to around day ten or so without any unbearable side effects, maybe just an itty bitty headache and some cravings. Yesterday? Not so much. The sugar hangover was real. They say that the extent of your ‘hangover’ is correlated to how naughty your diet had been the days leading up to day one. While I am no professional, I do not recommend you begin Whole 30 immediately after a bachelorette party 😉 .
It was quite the struggle to get out of bed yesterday, but I did make it and threw on this casual ensemble. This spring cardigan (on sale for $39) was ideal because it still felt like I was snuggled under cozy blankets while running errands around town! I may have felt a smidge less than prime, but an easy peasy outfit of denim shorts and an oversized sweater had me feeling like a brand spankin’ new woman. Since it is now officially spring (even though it was hardly 50 degrees + overcast yesterday), I had to dig my favorite shorts out of my closet for their very first outing of the season. I managed to go apartment hunting and do a bit of grocery shopping with my bestie before retiring for the evening. That may or may not have been around 7 o’clock… #guilty.
If you have any tips + tricks for successfully completing the Whole 30, let a girl know! I need allllll the words of wisdom ha!
