Whole30 Day 23: To skip the reintroduction or not to skip?

Whole30 Meal Plan Day 23

Whole30 Meal Plan Day 23: turkey breast and roasted veggies

I may have had some icky side effects, but I can see why people LOVE Whole30. At day 23 I am starting to see the benefits of a super clean and whole diet. The one biggie is my energy level, which is consistent throughout the day. I don’t experience any more ‘crashes.’ My energy level is even and feels lighter. So obviously I am wondering what’s causing this awesomeness, which brings me to the reintroduction… dun dun duuuun! 

The end is near!

Now that the end is nearing, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the reintroduction phase of Whole30. Part of me just wants to go back to my normal eating and part of me knows that if I do, I will probably feel miserable. Honestly, I can’t do ten more days; they should call this Whole40… for real! My mental space was for 30 days, not 40.

I have 3 reasons why I don’t want to do the reintroduction if you don’t count lazy.

1) I will be celebrating my birthday four days after Whole30
2) Our big Australian adventure starts a week after
3) My tummy was happier eating all the foods

So really the reintroduction may be obliterated by birthday bubbly, many many flights, and safe plane food, which includes carbs & dairy because they pack well and I am superstitious about the foods I eat in the air. All the beautiful excuses, eh!

I am so torn about reintroduction because I want this to be over, but I am starting to feel great, which means something is happening and doing the reintro is the only way to find out what it is. I want it to be over but I want answers! 😩 *cue hysterical whining and laughing

Y’all I am thinking out loud! What say you?
