When I began my first #Whole30 back in July, I did not really put it together that my birthday would fall inside those 30 days. I know, I know – part of planning is looking at the entire time frame, but I was so focused on what I could and could not eat – I did not really look to see what other events might be going on during that time. But, because I had committed to myself (and of course all of you) for those 30 days, I knew I could not use the excuse of my birthday to break my commitment. Not to mention it was like Day 22, so I was feeling like a million bucks by then. I had the normal birthday shindig with friends and family here at the house, but everything was Whole30 style… even the #whole30 birthday cake.
