    My Whole30 Experience: Week 2

    Another week down on Whole30, and I’m halfway done! If I’m being really honest with you, I’m having mixed feelings about my experience so far. Overall, I feel good – but nothing major.

I also have noticed a significant decrease in my strength/endurance during my runs since I…
