How important is sleep? Very. And how important is it in the midst of a Whole30? Extra.
That's the one thing I feel like I'm missing out on during this experience. They encourage you to get lots of rest, even nap when you're feeling run-down, particularly in the first couple of weeks. Problem is, the quantity and quality of my sleep is generally dictated by my children. And considering the oldest of my three kids is only four, we have a lot of night-time wake-ups.
One day this will be a distant memory. One that I won't spend too much time reflecting on as I sip my second cup of hot coffee, in bed, at 9am on a Saturday.
