My Whole30 Experience - Days 2 and 3

So far things have been going ok.  The headaches are still present, but I think alot of that is because I may be coming down with some kind of sinus thing - which isn't abnormal for me in the winter given, especially when the air is so dry (time to get the humidifiers out).  I also wonder if my consumption of tea has decreased my water intake - which could be the case since tea helps to keep me warm during the day alot better than cold water does.

Energy wise - well, I wasn't expecting any change this first week, but at least at this point I haven't experienced a huge drop in energy either.  My hope is that by the end of my Whole30 I will have an increase in energy, but I am optimistic since my thyroid condition is still trying to level out, as well as other health issues are still present (which my hope that this will help to get that under somewhat control as well).
