What a difference a day makes!

Wow - it really is amazing to me how much things can "turn around" within a single day!

I've had a few really rough days with super duper low energy/motivation levels, & insane cravings, but today I feel like I'm on top of the world. . . I'm hoping that this means that I have FINALLY turned that corner and that the worst is behind me for this Whole30. Only time will tell, but I'm going to ride this energy high for as long as it lasts!

I got up this morning, got my Fran on, and it's been onwards and upwards ever since. Granted I didn't even get close to PR'ing my Fran, but that's okay. I'm just happy I was finally able to drag my booty out of bed and to the gym for a morning workout!

I think that increasing my FAT intake yesterday really helped, and although the results were not instantaneous, it seems that after a good night's sleep they are finally showing themselves. I'm trying to take in a little more fat today to see if it continutes to help with my energy. . . . We'll See.

Here's a quick collage to my love of HEALTHY FAT and all of it's energy-providing goodness:

Adding to my GREAT mood is the excitement I feel over attending the Foundations of Nutrition Workshop and the Trainer's Workshop this weekend in Houston! AND if that weren't enough, I'm finally going to get the chance to meet Whole9's Mellisa & Dallas, and Melissa "Melicious" Joulwan (whose recipes I would SURELY DIE without!) in person **happy dance**

AAANND I'm going to get to shop at WHOLE FOODS while in Houston this weekend - does life get any better than that?

Yes- shopping at Trader Joe's!!! :)
I would love to have a Whole Foods available nearby, but I've never even BEEN to a Trader Joe's and I really really want to!!!

Days 4-5 are rough on Whole30; glad you turned the corner!
