  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: 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 ( 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!
