Whole 30 day 4 a New Start

A few evenings ago I was just plain tired. Tired of being lazy, tired of being tired, tired of chasing my kids around with no energy and tired of only putting half assed effort into my healthy lifestyle. So I decided that night I needed to make a huge change. I had talked to my doctor and the behavioral specialist about my antidepressants a couple weeks ago and we all planned that if I could eat paleo and workout I could come off of my antidepressants that have been basically sedating me and making me sleepy. It took me almost 3 weeks, but I finally made the huge step towards making that happen. 

I decided that I needed to try something different to detox my body completely and reset the way I think about food. I decided to do the Whole 30 (basically paleo with no sweeteners of any kind).

Here I am on day 3 and I feel great. I have cute my antidepressant dosage in half and it is still making me feel a little tired, but my mood is so much better, I feel better, more energized and haven't had any real cravings for the junk I was eating before. Not everyone does this well, but I think I was beyond ready for a change. 

As soon as I can I will add in T25 and walk/jog intervals. I will be going to Vegas on the 5th so it won't be an entire 30 days, but I plan to eat fairly healthy on my trip and start back with Paleo as soon as I get home. I have to keep my diet as paleo as possible so my mood stabilizes on it's own. 

Wish me luck while I start this journey all over again, but this time for good.
