Another Whole30

I have had a huge relapse in my eating...been gorging on maple syrup in my yogurt and eating Dairy Queen blizzards. The result is a gain of five pounds.

Worse than that, my body has suffered. My gums and teeth are so sore, much like the tingle after a dental teeth clean, except it has lasted 24 hours a day for the last two weeks. My teeth throb when I drink water. And my joints are very sore. Each morning two fingers lock when bent, and it takes a few hours of moving to get them to move smoothly. My digestive tract is really messed up.

It is time to do another whole 30. Today is day 1. So far, so good. I deliberated the ingestion of dairy, as I love half and half in my coffee. From a psychological standpoint, I would feel I am not really doing a whole30 and would inevitably not stick to the strict eating plan. So I am foregoing the dairy, and I will drink my coffee black. (I might look for a different nut based creamer, but not nutpods!)
