Or: On Taking the KonMari Approach to my 2nd Whole30
The Why’s, the How’s, the Care to Join me?
First, I’ve already explained the Whole30 program here: My First Whole30. Start with that post and then come back to this one.
Hi again! So if you read (or re-read) my last post, (not to be presumptuous, of course), you know why I think a Whole30’s beneficial. What you don’t know is what I hope to accomplish this time, along with one teeny-tiny dairy detail:
I won’t be cheating with cream in my coffee this time.
Here’s a great big preemptive AND YET…
My attitude about my appearance has changed since last summer. It is no longer just about “looking good” or “losing weight”; rather, I’m looking to reboot my life.
To that end, I’ve purchased the book that is taking the home organization websites by storm: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
I am reading it cover-to-cover before I begin, (the decluttering, that is–I start my Whole30 today), which is extremely difficult for a dip-in-and-go self-help reader like myself. I’m taking the time to read, think and envision, and I’m chomping at the bit to tidy up my life.
Seriously, friends, this method does indeed seem life-transforming. I am so…well…INSPIRED by the thought that even I could change! Me, a notorious leave-things-out-until-I-can-put-them-away-perfectly type, the perennial dreamer and distracted mom known (affectionately) by her husband as “Maggie of the Many Piles.”
I want to get to the very heart of it all–the “why” I want to clean up my eating, (Um, because I’m twenty pounds overweight?), the “how” I could possibly keep my kitchen (and home) clean, the “What’s the point of it all?” and “It’s so much more than just vanity.”
I want to eat to live and not live to clean.
I want to…slowly…eat an apple a day (or a peach) (or a kiwi), giving thanks to Him from all goodness flows.
So we’ll see and I hope to keep you posted. Meanwhile, do you want to join me in any or all of these adventures? Leave a comment here or on my Facebook page, and let’s make today the first day of forever.
I love you!
