  1. #SeptemberWhole30

    haha so true.. although id be lying if I said I DIDNT have a chocolate chip cookie, and dairy free ice cream last night as a final farewell for 30 days !!! Also.. only yall will find this funny.. so I usually buy baby food pouches (sweet potato/apple) for my post workout carbs.. so I bought 2 from whole foods yesterday and today after my training I grabbed the pouch.. sucked some up and before I swallowed I looked at the pouch because it tasted different.. well I accidentally had bought the sweet potato apple OATMEAL combo!! AHH!! I ran into the bathroom and immediately spit it out lol!!! So glad I checked before I messed up on day one!!!!
  2. #SeptemberWhole30

    Hi All!! My name is Alexa and I'm starting my second whole30 Sep 1st! My husband and I finished our first one august 5th and are excited about jumping into a second one. Neither of us did the proper reintroductions although I haven't reintroduced dairy because I already knew it was a terrible trigger for me. After a vacation and several birthday celebrations I'm excited to get back into a more strict program. I have an almost 2 year old little girl that I'd love to get eating more of these types of foods at an earlier age too! I'm a full time personal trainer and exercise on my own 5x a week (run/hiit/crossfit) so i'd also love to totally NAIL my pre/post workout meals as well. I'll be sharing my journey/recipes etc on here as well as my blog so i'd love if you all followed along there as well: alexamassie.wordpress.com or Instagram @alexa_massie also!!! CHOMPS sticks were/are such a staple for me on a whole30 and they were awesome enough to give me a discount code for everyone for 10% off so if you need to order some for emergencies (chomps.com) you can enter ALEXAMASSIE at checkout Looking forward to seeing everyones progress these next 30 days!
  3. Meal Timing Pre/Post Workout

    I think if you have your full meal before your workout-- and your workout doesnt suffer in that you're super full then you would be fine.. same with if you just had your pre workout snack before-- if your workout isnt suffering because you're under-fueled or you find yourself hungry during the workout.. then you're fine... Sometimes I switch it up just depending on how I feel that day, or what I have time for/how hungry i am!
  4. Accidental Slip

    I definitely plan on it.. but after I finish out this one. I understand it isn't the same.. but I also understand my mental state, and If i were to view that as a complete failure and having to start over from ground 0- it would have done me more harm than good.
  5. Accidental Slip

    Hi! i just saw your post... im personally on day 13... yesterday i CHOSE to have Gluten free pizza. I could give probably 5-7 reasons to what lead me to eat the pizza.. but the fact of the matter is that I ate it... and let me tell you what-- i PAID for it immediately. I felt SOOO sick 20 minutes later i ended up falling asleep on my couch at like 8. I woke up bloated, feeling bad etc.. BUT-- im not starting over. Just like i CHOSE to eat the pizza, im also CHOOSING to use this as a big learning moment. It taught me alot about myself and how i respond to stressful situations/poor planning. It also taught me alot through the reaction I had to the pizza. I thought maybe since it was gluten free it would be fine but I was so wrong. It made me completely appreciate the work that I had done in the 12 days and made me appreciate the foods that I had been fueling my body with. My next 18 days are going to be 100% spot on, but I'm not starting over. I'm not sure what you decided but just giving you my story.
  6. Started yesterday (7/5) for the first time

    Started the 5th as well! I totally get what you mean about the Toddler, i have a 19 month old and she's always trying to "feed me" whatever she is eating.. without realizing it i almost let her do it! she will have to learn that mommy cant eat animal crackers any more hah!
