About Me

My name is Courtney and I am currently doing the Whole30.  If you don’t know much about it, it’s pretty much an attempt to eat natural, unprocessed foods for a month (you can read more about it here).  I first heard about the Whole30 from one of my coworkers.  My first thought was “There’s no way I could do this for a whole month!”  I mean, I’m not trying to lose weight and I already eat healthy most of the time.  I exercise almost daily and overall, I’m pretty healthy.  But I like a challenge and, after some convincing from my coworkers, and a lot of research and preparation, I decided to try it (I also convinced my mom and sister to do it with me!).

So June 1-30, I am living the Whole30 life!  I think the hardest part about starting in summer will be going to graduation parties (I have 3 of them this month), barbecues and other parties.  But with the support of my coworkers, family and friends, I think I can make it through this (I am feeling optimistic today.  Ask me again tomorrow.).

One thing I found helpful during my research was reading other peoples’ experiences with the program.  So, this is my experience.  Hopefully it can help someone out there, too!
