I can hardly believe that I only have 11 days of my Whole30 left!!! Well, actually, I have to tack on a a couple more for the reintroduction. On day 31, I am going to add back in some dairy and evaluate how my body feels. On day 34, I am going to add in some gluten-containing grains and see how my body responds for a couple days. Then, on day 37, I am going to add in some gluten-free grains and see how my body responds. On day 40, I am going to add back in legumes.
Now, many people decide after their Whole30 to continue on with this way of life with few exceptions. I have been thinking about that for several days - what am I going to do after this is over?
Grains? Quinoa? Pasta? Can I really go without these things forever? Do I even want to?
Well, I haven't really made my mind up yet. Two things I know for sure:
1. I am not going to try to follow this diet perfectly forever. I already have a problem with being a perfectionist. I don't need another thing to try to be perfect at or to feel guilty about when I am not perfect.
2. I will be back to drinking my protein shakes. With all the working out I do, and with my fitness and health goals, I need my protein shakes to refuel before/after workouts. End of story.
So, I have 11 more days to figure out what I am going to be doing after this and what my children are going to be doing, since they are on the Whole30 too. Any thoughts?
