Several of you have asked why we Stopped sharing our Whole30 Challenge Experience, well ... Confession... we were doing fantastic (well, mostly), on the 20th day of the challenge, we (spouse & I) were RUN OVER by a distracted SUV Motorist, while we were on our Motorcycle.
Following the accident I had an epiphany, which was, "Screw this, If I'm going to get run over & die, I'll be damned if it's with a stomach full of coconut oil & steamed veggies."
So..... once we were able, we grabbed a pitcher of Ice Cold Beer & a Gluten-laden, Cheese Dripping, Pepperoni & Sausage (bursting with Nitrates) Pizza (hey, they added onions & peppers) so, no judging.
It's been about 2 months and we're still dealing with severe muscle spasms and pain from the accident.
Will we try the Whole30 Challenge in the future?
Possibly. But the realization that your life can be snuffed out in a split second without your consent. . . well, it's grounds for learning to embrace every single moment like it's your last, because it very well could be. My sincere apologies to those of you that were following the challenge, I certainly didn't mean to leave you high and dry, as they say.
