#Whole30 Day 3

#Whole30 Day 3. I have a small tribe cheering each other on as we commit to 30 days to reset our bodies and rethink our food choices. For me, this is the beginning of a lifestyle change, not just something to do for a month. Due to circumstances beyond my control over the years, I found myself addicted to sugar and carbs and bad habits, and I’ve decided what I CAN control is taking my life back.

While I can’t change any of the past trauma, I can change what it has stolen from me which at various times has been my sanity, joy, peace, and love for life. These 30 days are days I’m spending in a posture of further healing, not just saying no to all the food and drink I’ve existed on.

Every choice I make right now comes with a thought process of “how is this healing me, mind, body, and spirit?” I want to comfortably do Yoga and go for a walk and hike and dance and go for a bike ride and swim and do all the things I used to do, but because I got stuck in a trauma rut and couldn’t see light at the end of the tunnel, I bowed my head and retreated into the shadows. And because of past abuses, I decided to hide even further so no one could reach me or enter into the space of who Ginger really is.

But I’ve decided I’m worth knowing and I’m worth being well again. I still have work to do, people to love, and experiences to behold.
