I Eliminated the Things That Were Slowing Me Down
I began the year on Whole30 to explore my habits and potential food intolerances. I discovered that too much sugar and dairy will break me out and that soy upsets my stomach. I also learned that alcohol was a weird, unnecessary crutch for me, and I kicked my "beer nightly" routine pretty fast. I tend to do well with structured routines and goals, and since Whole30 already outlined all the rules and was over in just a month, it made diving into a healthier New Year pretty easy.
