Whole30 Journey Round Two!
Today, I’m actually in day 22 as I type this, but today is the first day I decided to talk about it, why I’m doing it again, and why I might go as long as 60 days instead of just 30.
In short, I felt some symptoms returning as a result of the chaotic way that I’ve been eating. My anxiety came back a little, but my depression came back full-swing. It could be because the season was going from fall to winter and I don’t handle that well. It could also be that I had a big stressor back in August and I hadn’t really recovered mentally from that. Along, with not being able to afford my therapist as much as I want to, the depression is back. To cope, I’ve been overeating.

I have also gained some inches back. Not horribly, but I’ve noticed some of my clothes feeling tighter. I may have gained weight back but I don’t get in the scale. In fact, I don’t have a scale. If I have a scale at home, I will just weigh myself everyday and become super critical of myself. I’m already very hard on myself. I deserve grace too.
However, my depression has been kicking my butt and the cold weather and dark days aren’t helping.
To add, my endometriosis symptoms started to return. I simply just can’t have that. Not at all. With God’s help, I will complete this journey as I have before and I have plans to try to make this lifestyle a little more permanent.

[…] I’m currently on my second round of Whole30 and I wanted to share this journey with you all as well. I made it to day 30 back on January 10, 2020. Before I could make it to day 30 I began to feel as if I should go another 30 days. I’ve talked before about Endometriosis symptoms and how they’ve plagued my life. During my first Whole30 journey, I felt some relief from those symptoms, but my reintroduction phase wasn’t so smooth. Quite frankly, I don’t think I should have had a reintroduction phase, I should have continued to experiment with other changes I could make in my diet to reduce some new and old symptoms.As I’m writing this post, I’m on day 36 of this journey. I thought I would share some of what I’ve been going through on this round of my journey. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, most of my journey is being tracked on Instagram.
