Upgrade

This is the replacement. I am very sad to see my extremely cute pink Nike's go. But it needed to be done.

I would like to think the Walking Co. that let me use their technology to see how my weight was being distributed on my feet. My left foot is actually flatter than my right foot! They had me try some insoles that were amazing. The only problem is they cost as much as my shoes.
So I decided to see if I could either get much cheaper shoes so I could afford the insoles, or find shoes that didn't need them.

Next I would like to thank Macy's for completely ignoring me for about 10 minutes, but also for not asking any questions about my return when they did finally acknowledge me. Basically a hassle free transaction.

Last, I would like to thank Lady Foot Locker for providing lots of information and being very patient with me as I tried on several pairs of shoes and even ran around their store a bit. Sadly, they had some really cute pink ones, but they didn't have my size and I would have had to wait several days for them to ship to me. I didn't want to have any excuse to miss a workout. So I settled on the purple ones. They look much more pink out of the context of the store and much more pink than the picture makes them look. So I am happy with this choice. I'm going to try them for a week and see if I should go back and get the arch support insoles that she suggested I try with them.

Round 2 - Day 1

Happy New Year! I am so relieved to see 2017 come to a close. It was a long, tough, satisfying year and I am happy to be done. I think the two things that were the most life changing last year were moving into our new house and the first Whole30 I completed.

It's been four months since I finished my first Whole30. I remember my delightful barista, Kristina, saying "It's so hard, but so worth it." And I couldn't describe it better. I have tried so many things to lose weight and keep it off and nothing has ever permeated my consciousness like this has. I think about what I'm eating basically always. I haven't gained any of the weight back that I lost even though I haven't considered myself on a diet since September. I am also hyper-aware of how foods affect me.

December was sort of a free-fall. We went to Disneyland and I made the conscious decision to enjoy myself. Disneyland is already a sugar wonderland most of the year, but add in the Christmas them…

Round 2 Day 5

I'm five days into my second whole30 and I am thrilled at how much easier it has been than the first round! Here are some ways that it has been better:

I have pretty much memorized what foods I can and can't have this time so it's much easier to shop and plan. I have a clear plan with my kids that helps me stress a lot less about how to include them. I established a lot of food routines the first time and can just replicate my breakfast and lunch plans now.I know better which restaurants I can eat at and how to plan for what I can eat. I am a lot more gracious with myself because I know I don't have to be perfect to get good results.I also know that these restrictions will not last forever and that I haven't said goodbye the croissants and chocolate for the rest of my life. It doesn't feel as permanent this time as it did last time. (sorta like a first pregnancy versus a second one) Considering what a junk-food junkie I was the weeks leading up to January, I fee…

Round 2 Day 8
