Tomorrow morning starts my first Whole 30. I’m spending the evening working on job applications and watching PBS. I love watching public television, and hopefully my job hunting tonight will be fruitful. Tonight’s been filled with applications for teaching jobs in the city. The idea of getting back into the classroom is very exciting, and working with students from diverse backgrounds brings a set of challenges that I am looking forward to taking on. Also this week I have an interview for an immediate job working for a local health food store. I’m looking forward to the interview and the possibility of the job that includes a discount on paleo foods is pretty good as well. As the night carries on I find myself more and more nervous about how my body will change as the month gets underway. Which to me seems odd considering how long that I’ve been Paleo already. Cutting out much of my coffee consumption is going to be the biggest challenge. I make no illusions that I drink anything other than too much of the stuff. But it’s my one holdover, when not drinking water I have coffee and I’ll drink it all day long. So for the Whole 30 I’m going to cut down my consumption to two cups before noon. I will then add in a little bit of tea consumption as well. This is going to be a month of trying new things, getting rid of some old things and in the end we will see how I respond to yet another challenge to jump out of this rut that I’ve found myself in lately. I’m sure that this month will find me discussing things in more detail, and tomorrow I’ll be stepping on the scale for the first time in months, in the spring when I broke 130lbs lost I decided that I would not weigh myself anymore. But it will be interesting to see where I am weight wise now. So this week look forward to pictures and measurements and also some observations of jumping into the Whole 30 and it’s impact on my body.
