Obligatory December 31st Post (Whole30 Kickoff!)
It’s December 31st and that means I owe you a post filled with all the ‘bests’ of 2012, some reminiscing, what I’ve learned, how I’ve grown, and what I plan to do in the new year. I’ve thought about all those things on my own, but I’m not so sure I should share them with the public right away, or ever.
You already know that stress reduction is going to be a huge theme for me, so you’ll likely see many a post regarding that. Sorry to maintain some level of mystery around it, I don’t mean to, but I haven’t quite fully worked out some of the things I want to incorporate outside of meditation, journaling, and food. Even meditation is something I want to read up more on.
I can handle food.
Tomorrow kicks off the January 1st Whole30. For those of you unfamiliar with it, let me point you in the direction of the creators at the Whole9:
- The rules
- Helpful PDFs (shopping guides, adaptations for vego’s, meal planning template, meal timing, how to eat out, all FABULOUS sources)
- Support for this Whole30
Also, if you haven’t read It Starts With Food, get on it. It’s an utterly incredible source and puts good eating into terms everyone can understand.
Here are some other kickoff blog posts from around the web:
What about me? What can you get from me? Well, honestly, not a lot that you can’t get from these other folks, but I’m going to do my best! As per request, there will be a number of motivational posts throughout the month in addition to plenty of photos of food… which means I need to start trying recipes. That’s always fun because I’m a hot mess in the kitchen
But that’s not all! (so sales pitchy)
If you decide to participate, Ape (of Reshape with Ape) and I are teaming up on this one and made a…wait for it….WAIT…..!!!!
Surprised ya there, didn’t I? Unless you saw my post on Facebook, then you aren’t surprised at all. Anyway, in addition to the group as a place to post photos, recipes, ask questions, and generally discuss, April and I are hosting a giveaway each. For those actively participating in the group, April will be drawing randomly to giveaway a Well Fed bracelet on January 7.
I, however, am an a**hole and like to make people earn free stuff.
If you make it the full 30 days, participating in the group and keep us up to date on what you’re going through (both the ups AND downs), I’ll draw randomly for a winner to receive a copy of Well Fed. I don’t actually own Well Fed myself, so I’m buying a copy for me and one lucky winner as a CONGRATS for finishing!
The drawing for this will be on January 31, 2013.
