Project Life Week Four

0

I am really enjoying my new Project Life habit!

This week I had another week that was half Puerto Rico and half South Carolina. I am saving our vacation pictures for a separate vacation album, and am just putting some general pictures in my weekly album.

Whole30 Challenge

1

I am transitioning from a low carb diet into a primal diet. I am feeling like a challenge, so I am going to do a Whole30 challenge. I already had the book on which the challenge is based, It Starts With Food, by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig.

This is the Whole30 in a nutshell…

Yes: meat, seafood, eggs, tons of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts and seeds.

No: sugars, alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy, MSG, sulfites, and white potatoes.

Not too bad. I was pretty much doing that anyway. I am not going to lie, the first few days were rough, but then I felt so good I didn’t really mind it as much!

There is a great Whole30 Quick Start Guide , an explanation of the Whole30 Program, Meal Planning Template, Pantry Stocking List, and a Shopping List you can download. And I just found another overview of the program from Whole9, that I think I like even better than the other one.

The 6 quick start steps are:

  1. Clean out your pantry
  2. Plan a week’s worth of menus
  3. Go shopping
  4. Plan your go-to meals
  5. Set yourself up for success
  6. Ditch your scale

I am going to eat pretty much the same thing every day.

Breakfast
Eggs
Bacon, sausage or ham
Fruit

Lunch
Meat or fish
Big salad

Supper
Meat or fish
Vegetables

I think it is doable! Day one of thirty starts on Saturday…anyone else with me?

Project Life…Week Two

There are a few things I am obsessed with right now. Bullet journaling, a primal diet, my Organize Now book, my Flylady control journal…and Project Life. I always tried to get in to the whole scrapbooking thing when my boys were little, but I got overwhelmed. I just didn’t have it in me to be that crafty and creative. Project Life was totally made for me!

It is SO easy to do Project Life. Here is the website: www.beckyhiggins.com. Here is a graphic from her website that explains what you need…
