If you know really know me, then stop and pick your chin off the floor.
Everyone else, I'll tell you what the big deal is...
I like my coffee with so much cream and sugar in it that you can almost stand a spoon in it. It is literally the first thing I think of as soon as the alarm goes off. I jump out of bed and run to the coffee maker. It is number 2 in my top 10 list of favorites foods.
(no. 1 is wine) Lol
So, why did I ruin my favorite beverage by drinking it black?
I had a very down and dirty talk with my Naturopathic doctor yesterday and she had some very unsettling news for me about my test results. Basically, I can not properly digest foods and also can not absorb or break down nutrients.
I've been paleo, gluten free, dairy free, food free, or whatever else I needed to do for the past year to feel better and this was like a punch in the gut.
She wants me to do the Whole 30 program to reset my system so that I can function like a regular human being.
If you have never heard of Whole 30, go google it or click on the link above.. I'll wait....
NO sugar! NO cream! Crap there goes my favorite thing about mornings.
Then I read the worst statement of all time -
"Do not consume alcohol in any form, not even for cooking."
You have got to be effing kidding me right now!
On the ride home from my doctor's appointment, I cried. Then yelled, screamed and stomped my foot. Then later in the evening my Bff came over and I yelled, cried and drank the rest of the wine in my house.
I know that this might seems like the reaction of an unruly child not getting her way.
But for someone who has basically been told her whole life what to eat and what not to eat, this was a shot to the soul.
As soon as I woke up this morning, I knew that I had gotten all of the foot stomping out, the yelling and the no fairs. This was the thing I needed to do and damn it, I was going to do it!
I started Day 1 this morning.
This will not be easy, but from everything I have heard and read, it is the treatment I need to go through.
Hopefully, I won't stab my husband at some point during this. Lol!
Have any of your ever done this program? What are your thoughts? Any great resources that I need to check out?
Wish me luck.
