For 2015, I feel motivated, largely by the pile of pants in my closet that do not fit without some extreme negotiation on my part, to focus on my health. For January, my reset button is going to come in the form of Whole30.
It's a pretty simple list of Dos and Don'ts--
Yes to veggies, fruits, meats, and nuts.
No to sugar, alcohol, breads, dairy, and legumes.
My one exception is bacon. After looking through every bacon package at the grocery store yesterday, I learned that it's quite difficult to find bacon without some traces of sugar. I'm giving myself a pass on this one. (I'm sure I'll face the wrath of the Whole30 disciples later, but that's for Future Lauren to worry about.)
My mantra for the next month?
1. It's only 30 days.
2. Coffee is approved.
Daniel and I gave each other a gym membership for Christmas (student discount!), so I'm counting on Whole30 and the treadmill to work their collective magic. This is the year, right?
Happy 2015, y'all!
