Restart with Whole30

Sunday January 3rd. Day 2 of our restart.

Not bad. A little confession. I still have some of my coffee creamer (Bliss) left over. But I’m only putting a tablespoon in a 12 ounce cup. Two cups in the morning. And when it’s gone I’m switching to coconut milk. After the holidays, that’s a minuscule amount of sugar.

It has been a challenge not reaching for those Christmas chocolates. Or eating Christmas cookies. But my dislike of needles makes me want to get that sugar beast under control.

When I start feeling deprived, I remind myself I am not. I still get to eat a full plate of food at meal time. I can still have snacks. I’m just changing the choices I make. One thing’s for sure, I’m not going hungry.

We got this. But I’ll get back with you when carb fever sets in.


About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
