7 Days of My Whole30: Week 1

I survived my first 7 days of the Whole30! I feel like I should get a prize…but my usual celebration is a cookie, which is most definitely out. So…I grabbed a new pair of yoga pants. A mom can never have too many yoga pants, right?

I woke up with a KILLER headache, and spent the day slathering my head in peppermint essential oil. I don’t recommend it. In the afternoon, my joints started aching, and I noticed that I was extremely bloated. UGH.
