I just bought a copy of It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, founders of Whole9. I’m getting ready to start the Whole30 tomorrow with my friend over at Change My Body, Change My Life. The whole program is online, for free. Being a book junkie – and being out of printer ink – it was actually cheaper for me to just buy the book.

This thirty days won’t be easy. My first big challenge will be getting through Rhythm & Roots Reunion, a big music festival in Bristol, Tennessee September 14-16. With my energy levels being what they are, I don’t foresee myself doing any partying that weekend, but the food is amazing. Mouth-watering scents waft throughout the whole street. If I can get through that without succumbing to temptation, I can do anything! We’ll see. Maybe wearing a gas mask will help. Number one, it will keep those succulent aromas from accosting my nose. Number two, it will cover my mouth to keep any unapproved foods from finding it. Somebody may have to tie my hands behind my back, just in case. My second big challenge is, as always, organization. Something about making meal plans sends my brain into chaos. Planning is not my forte. I’ve gotta get over that – somehow.
I have just a few hours to get this book read, make a shopping list, and get my butt in gear. That’s all for today.
Until next time…
