I recently listened to a fabulous podcast from Melissa Hartwig, the co-founder of Whole30. She was giving an update on her “I’m not drinking right now” experiment.
So it had me thinking about the times I have done this in the past. I went for a little over a year, shortly after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, with no alcohol. There were some specific health stuff I needed to heal from and make sure alcohol wasn’t a contributing issue or that it wasn’t going to slow down the healing process.
Now something I have learned over the years of doing different types of fasts, or abstaining, I KNOW that even if I am approaching it with a physical goal there will be spiritual and emotional benefits. As well as when I am entering into a fast for a spiritual reason I will experience physical and mental health benefits.
I don’t believe in coincidences…..lol…..because I am prepping my private coaching clients for a 30 day Health Habits challenge…..and I was looking at weaving some of the concepts and nuggets of the WHOLE30 into it. More on the why below….but first why this is NO coincidence.
The Whole30 isn’t just about getting back to real food….it’s also about finding freedom with food….figuring out your relationship and trigger points with food.
So even though I have come a very long way……and I truly live now with FOOD FREEDOM, just as I teach and coach…….I also know that WE CAN ALL USE A RESET from time to time…….to make sure there isn’t any little triggers or negative emotions trying to be buried behind the food or drink choices.
And if at the end of 30 days nothing emotionally comes up…..well I sure didn’t lose anything…..if anything I gained a nice reset to my system that probably needed it!
I’m thinking this is going to help me for sure with my gut health….lol….which really isn’t bad…..but anytime a person deals with Hashimoto’s there is ALWAYS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT!
So these are my plans for AUGUST! I am going to say NO to alot of things….to just reset my brain….my health…..my emotions….make sure they are all in good check…..
How about you?
