We started our Whole 30 last night at dinner. I am happy! We have a fun cohort in a secret (not so secret) Facebook group all starting approximately together. You can play along!
I will probably mostly over-post about Whole30 for the next 29 days. It will not be very diabetes-ish. Example of W30 fascinating observation: I noticed that I am not hungry, but am very drinky. I like the option of a gin and tonic at this time. (4:33pm.)
I noticed someone I know subscribed to my posts, so hello, and please let’s not talk about this in public or discuss it with anyone in my family.
