In the Whole30, Day 2’s prediction is that you’ll experience smooth sailing and wonder what the big deal is. Of course, I have already done the Whole30 a couple times already, so I remember the optimistic early days and have decided to use the enthusiasm of this fresh start to set up systems as recommended by James Clear in his book Atomic Habits.
My hope is that I can use the momentum of the enthusiasm I have at the outset to create systems enjoyable enough to coast me through the uphill segments without a ton of additional effort.
One of the things that I started yesterday was getting the first phase of The Gabriel Method going… I found some bodies that might inspire me. It’s hard looking online for female bodies fit 5’7″, because much to my dismay, most of the “fit” bodies are what I’d consider too thin for me. I don’t want a thigh gap.
But finally, I found some role models.
I just got back from the gym a bit ago, and I’m pretty excited to spend some time working out there (as in: a lot of time). Today, I did a very light workout (half hour) because I don’t want to hurt myself going in too hard and too fast. We’re in this for the long haul, not to break records.
