Whole 30 Shopping List.

Happy New Year loves! I’m so excited for a new year but also to stop seeing people trash on 2020 because even through a pandemic, life is still so good. I always enjoy January since there is so much motivational energy in the air with everyone trying to determine their goals for the next year (my yearly goals will come in a later post!)

If you’ve been following along on my Instagram, my boyfriend & I will be attempting a version of Whole 30 for the month of January to get the gut health back to a good spot and feel good before heading to Cabo at the end of March (send me your swimsuit recommendations!)

There are so many sales going on right now and I’ve been wanting to get up some favorites posts up for ya’ll but I’ve been too slow & busy with work to compile those before the sales are over. But a few I’ve been eyeballing is the up to 65% off from Beautycounter & the Christmas Bundle from HydroJug. I literally went a little crazy purchasing some new water bottles with the bundle, items from BruMate when their 20% of sale was going (looks like they have select items for 30% off now!), and a few fun ones off Etsy because I’m really trying to increase my water consumption in the new year. I’ve been slacking for a while so I’ve been looking for new ways to get me excited to drink water. A few other things I’ve done recently is stocking up on seltzer waters & MiO flavoring (Yum!)

Back to the Whole 30 plan! I’ve never fully attempted the plan so I’m really excited to find new food items and recipes. I’ve also never fully eliminated carbs and dairy from my diet (I have done no added sugar plenty) so am really intrigued to see how my body feels after the month.

Below is a rough shopping list I’ll be using throughout the month. If you have found items that are great, send them my way. I’ll be sharing a lot of large topics here on the blog but smaller updates on Instagram so following along there as well (@ashraeeining). For now, have a fabulous New Year Day – I love the clean slate of the first day of the month AND the first day of the year!

Fresh year, fresh me. Happy 2019!

I hope you all had a wonderful new year celebration. I can’t believe it is already the new year! My last year was amazing, invigorating and challenging at times. I was pushed to new limits and leaped head first into new adventures. I welcomed a new lifestyle in a wonderful city and began my journey into yoga teacher training. And this next year will be even more fabulous!

My word for the next year is bold.

I plan to be more confident in my decisions and who I am. This last year brought many changes into my life and I have a feeling that this next year will entail some more. I love change and new beginnings, which is why I am one who highly enjoys the transition of the years. I’m very much a planner and get giddy over the idea of setting goals and intentions for the next 12 months to come. I find there is great value in writing them out and sharing them with others to provide another level of commitment.

“Comparison is the death of all joy, and the only person you need to be better than is the one you were yesterday” – Girl, Wash Your Face

2019 Intentions: 

  • Set a morning routine of movement, meditation, reading, and relaxation before “getting ready”.
  • Get outside & enjoy nature more.
  • Read 24 books.
  • Travel to at least 3 new places.
  • Try a new adventure or challenge at least once a month.

I’d love to hear the intentions your setting going into this new year! Share with me in the comments or I encourage you to write them out, even if only for your own eyes, in a journal, on a napkin, or even in your notes app on your phone. Then check back in with what you had written each month to see if you’re staying committed to what you wrote or reevaluating if those intentions have shifted.

I enjoy setting a couple different intentions for the year but even just one intention that you feel you can commit to can provide an impact in changing your life.

Namaste loves!
