Jon and I have decided to embark on another WholeAdventure. His first 60 days, my second. I would say it’s harder than W30, but that’s not true. After 30 days you’re in the groove, and it’s not hard to keep going. And I saw way more benefits after 60 than I did after 30, especially in regards to my sugar addiction. 60 is my minimum, I need to get a better baseline, and have a more concrete plan for life after the round.
So, today was Day 1! Wee! We didn’t take measurements this morning, we’ll do it tomorrow. I was out of state for 5 days last weekend, and I decided while I was gone (and eating and drinking like I was on vacation, because I was) that I wanted to use the 1st of the month as a springboard. Jon took a little convincing, but he got on board!
This one is going to be pretty interesting, I think. I’ve got a good handle on keeping it simple. Going to try to keep our costs down, while also not boring the hell out of us (mostly him, not me). I’m going to miss cheese more than anything, as I had pretty much given myself a free cheese pass for the past 6 months, but I know it’s not the best for me, so that’s ok. Maybe it takes longer than 60 days to break a cheese addiction? Haha we’ll find out.
I’ve got a 5k and my first Ragnar coming up, plus a big conference for work. I’m a little nervous about those things, but I tend to look at them as new challenges, and they’re more exciting than anything. I know that I just have to prepare well, and it’s not really anything I haven’t done before. If anything, it makes the whole endeavor more satisfying knowing that I didn’t plan specifically for it to be as easy as possible. The way I see it, that’s not how you build a sustainable habit.
So, I guess that’s all there is to it for now. Today was easy peasy. We’ll see how long it takes for the crankies to set in!
