For a while now Captain and I have felt generally unwell.

You know the feeling when you have eaten too much,

that bloaty puffy feeling.

Nothing really specific,

just bleh.

And the earth’s force of gravity has had a significant effect on our bathroom scales.

So here it is, my latest Galley Kat Rant…

I stumbled onto the recent craze in dieting called Whole30.

You can read all about it here if you wish.

Now, I have to preface all this by saying,

we don’t do diet (could be part of our problem?)

Even the word diet should be considered a nasty four letter word.

We enjoy a fairly healthy, well-balanced regimen

and rarely overindulge in junk food.

We eat fresh and local whenever possible

and I try my best to stay away from foods with additives.

Since retiring though,

we haven’t been as physically active in the winter months

although summer on the boat provides more than enough movement.

We consume more wine than we did years ago

and the one scotch that was once our Friday Happy Hour evening cocktail

has become an almost daily routine.

But back to this reset reboot thing.

The precept is that we need to eliminate all added sugars, grains, legumes, dairy and alcohol

for a period of 30 days.

I hate the idea of the dietary imbalance but 30 days we can manage.

I plan on being brutally honest

and if we slip just once we’ll have to return to the start line

Blogging about the journey will help us chronicle our progress.

Today is DAY ZERO

when I plan menues for the next few days,

shop for supplies

and lock away or discard any temptations.


Next up, Day 1 and Day 2…
