So I signed up for the Whole30 Challenge last week, and they have already put me to work! But it’s all good, I actually like the preparation. I know some people they are like “why do I have to do this?”. But I totally understand, it’s getting me ready for what’s to come.
Worksheet 1 – Goal-setting for your Whole30
Melissa and Dallas have kindly broken it down into 9 factors for optimal health. Everyone’s 9 factors are going to be different. I’m putting it out there and telling you mine.
I will eat my main meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner) at the table
I will turn off the tv/computer by 9 pm (1 hour before bed)
I will not take my stress out on my kids. I will count to 8 or walk away so I don’t yell at them
I will run 3 days, strength train 3 days, and do yoga 1 day (a total of 6 days) a week.
I will stretch after each workout and foam roll every day
I will work on my back and core strength.
Fun and Play
For at least 4 days (weekends) we will go out as a family and do a fun family activity.
I will read 4 books. Two will be fiction, and 2 will be nonfiction. This can be with my eyes or via audiobook.
I will not be at the computer before 10 am for the next 30 days.
As you can see I have some very specific goals. I personally find that important. Like in the temperance goal, I am such a time waster in the morning when it comes to the computer. So this one is going to be a bit of a challenge, but it’s going to be a good one for me.
In two weeks’ time I will give you an update on how these goals are coming along, and then a reassessment at the end of the challenge.
Wish me luck!

That’s a lot of work! But I have faith you can do it! I didn’t realize there was a whole program involved with Whole 30. I can’t wait to hear how it goes for you!
Wow – I felt like you were writing down what my goals should be if I was doing the Whole 30 plan! Good luck to you!
I should make the exception for workouts with the computer thing, as I play my dvd’s via my computer as the dvd player is being a spaz atm.
but I’m glad that someone else can relate to the goals. I hope the next 30 days go well for me too. Thanks Angela.
i love this idea and how it keeps you accountable….im off to check it out and sign up for next month! thanks for sharing this.
You can actually start at any time. I would totally recommend reading the book “it starts with food” as that will be your road map.
I’ve signed up for the daily emails which is only $15 for the month and you get loads of support (bargain I say), and the support is continuous, it’s a once off fee.
Good luck if you do decide to go ahead with it.
