I’ve been wanting to give up sugar again for a while. It’s the one thing I really struggle with. I even manage to go for a few days every once in a while, and I feel really good, and then I just can’t find the willpower to say no to that chai frappe or piece of chocolate.
I taught a Reiki Level 1 class this weekend. Part of the process is an attunement, followed by a 21-day cleanse. There’s no protocol for this cleanse. It’s very individual for each person what happens with the cleanse. I figured if I was going to be cleansing anyway, I might as well do it with intention.
This time, my son is doing it with me. It’s a bigger adjustment for him than it is for me, because really the only things I am cutting out are sugar and rice. I’ve already eliminated most of the other “no” items in the Whole30. Still, it is really wonderful to have someone here to support and be supported by.
A lot of my friends are following the keto diet. I’m really glad to see so many of them see the results they are looking for. I have a lot of resistance when it comes to keto. Every time I look into, it just doesn’t feel right for me. Part of it is because I can’t eat dairy. And yes, I know it is possible to eat keto non-dairy. However, it doesn’t feel right for me, and I have to listen to my body.
So Whole30 it is! I’m actually looking forward to seeing what this round brings me. Though I will miss the occasional Starbucks!
