Surprise I’m (Crazy And) Doing Another Whole 30!

Can I count this as wearing green?

I was painting my nails on Saturday and noticed they were sort of splitting and chipping and generally making for a gnarly looking manicure. AND WE CAN’T HAVE A GNARLY MANICURE NOW, CAN WE?

My solution:



I know, it probably sounds a little nuts but I remembered back to every Whole 30 I’ve done and one of the most notable things that always happens is my nails end up looking fantastic. So — hey, superficial goals for the win!

My other superficial goal? Get back my May 2012 shoulders. Ooooooh, and get rid of my back fat. Yes, that too! Sadly, some of those goals will take more than 30 days, but all of these silly superficial goals have one thing in common: They require my nutrition to be dialed in tight. So why not a Whole 30?

I quickly glanced at the calendar on Saturday and it didn’t appear we had no major boozing holidays on the books over the next 30 days (sorry, just being real, that is always the toughest part of Whole 30 for me) so I decided, “Why put it off, let’s start Monday!”

I’ve written before about how to make your Whole 30 a success and I’ll have you know right now I have taken none of my own advice (that’s not completely true — my mindset is pretty determined) but I am not prepared at all. I don’t have a great meal plan or any fabulous new recipes to get excited about, but I have a fridge full of meat and veggies so I know it can be done.

Besides, I totally own Well Fed and Well Fed 2 — and in my humble opinion, those are really the only 2 resources I need to have crazy good/squeaky clean eats for 30 days.

Seriously, GETCHA SOME!

Impulse Whole 30s are the new black.

It’ll be an experiment so I’m sure I’ll be updating the blog, Twitter and Instagram with all my thoughts.

Follow along if you like!


Any chance you’re doing one?

    Holla! Right on! You get after, girl. Thanks for the shout out to Well Fed and Well Fed 2. And yeah, I’m pretty much always doing a Whole30 these days — thanks, fucked up hormones — so I’m with you. My only addition, don’t be mad, is that I have to (MUST!) eat 1/2 ounce of dark chocolate every day to help with my high blood pressure. But other than that, I’m squeaky clean, so I’ll be with you, my friend.

    “I quickly glanced at the calendar on Saturday and it didn’t appear we had no major boozing holidays on the books over the next 30 days”

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA. I love you. And I think I’m in. The eating situation is a little dire over here

    Definitely make the Taj Mahal chicken from WF2. It was amazing…probably one of my most favorite recipes ever.

    Holly, I notice the same thing about my nails when I do the W30! I think there is a very good chance I will be doing one in May-we go on vacation in a few weeks, and I know by the time I get home I will be ready for some seriously healthy eating. I think the great thing about W30 is while it is wonderful to be prepared, you can also jump in fairly easily.

    Good luck!

    Five more days to go for my second W30. There is new learning to be had with go around, no? And, by the way, in my mind, you and Melissa are the same person! (I found both blogs about the same time). When I think about her (or you), your life stories get morphed into one. Now you know your alter ego!

    Nice! Good luck! Also you might check out Nail Envy by OPI. It’s a base coat to make your nails stronger. Not saying the Whole30 will work. I’m sure it will. But if you want to double up it’s a good purchase. My nails had been splitting for weeks and completely stopped once I started using that as a base.

    Thanks for this! It made my day. Last night before reading this I had decided to start another one on Monday. It’s nice to know others doing it along side you ( even if I don’t actually know them!)
