    Day 1 Nov 4th

    Day 12! Feeling great! Sleeping throughout the night! Waking up refreshed with energy throughout the day! Its going great. Question though... Now that I have been eating my breakfast first thing in the morning, I am getting hungry by 11 (I eat breakfast at 6ish). I use to eat my lunch at 12:30/1 but it never feels like I can make it that long. Should I be eating earlier or should I incorporate a small snack to tide me over? Or maybe I should be eating more breakfast?! Not sure what the best solution is.

    Day 1 Nov 4th

    Day 3 and 4 have been so sleepy. Took a nap yesterday. Slept from 10-6, and fell asleep reading again today. It’s 5 and I feel like I could go to bed! Doesn’t help that it’s dark out at this time. Can’t wait to get past this for sure!

    I usually make a breakfast casserole and eat it throughout the week! Loaded with potatoes, sausage, eggs, veggies, and olives! So good! Weekends I try to get more creative and make sweet potato skillets or sweet potato toast or something different, but I usually dont get bored of eggs!

    Have you ever tried Good Earth’s Sweet and Spicy tea!? It’s amazing that it is all natural flavors! Comes in caffeinated and decaf! Another great herbal is Bengal Spice from Celestial. I’m a sucker for the strong flavors and spiciness! I’ll definitely check out the licorice! Sounds wonderful! -Z

    Yay! Congrats on the marathon! I'll be training this winter to run one next spring! The New York though! That's incredible! How did you do!? I started my 4th round of whole30 yesterday! Was going to start today but come Saturday brunch I was satisfied to have that be my "last meal" Happy Day 1!

    Workout on lunch break, cardio after work..

    Thanks for all the feedback. Today is day 2 of my whole30 and the first day back to the office. I have been relying on caffiene because I dont get enough sleep throughout the week. I get up every weekday at 5:50, take the bus to work, and work from 7-4. My goal this whole30 is to not be reliant on caffeine and to get into a better sleep routine. I'm sure once I stop relying on caffeine I will also be able to get into a better sleep pattern. I am giving up the (protein) shakes for the whole30 and replacing them with hardboiled eggs with some sweet potato fries. Thanks for the recommendation on how to time the eating. The reason I had been eating breakfast so late was so that I wasnt hungry before working out. So my plan is to have an egg beforehand. I'm surprised that it makes that big of difference to eat the pwo immediately after, but youre saying that I should eat the pwo right after rather than just waiting to eat lunch which has protein/carbs?

    What meals are you making for the week!?
  8. Trying to figure out my strategy on Pre/postWO. I am pretty active and lift weights on my lunch break at work 5 days a week as well as run 3 times a week after work and usually go to yoga 2 times a week. My schedule usually consists of eating breakfast at 10, lots of caffiene, workout from 12:30-1:30, eat lunch after, eat dinner around 5:30 and then have a shake or snack after my evening activity. Any suggestions on a better schedule that follows the meal template better? i can eat earlier but I don’t know if I should have lunch before my workout, or a Pwo meal before and then eat lunch after. Or if I should eat lunch before and have protein and a carb after? Lifting is where I put in the most effort so I’m guessing that’s when I’d want to fuel before/after but then I also have to consider my evening runs. Any advice?

    Day 1 Nov 4th

    Was thinking I would start on Monday but after Saturday brunch I didn’t feel like putting it off any longer. Went to the store (4-5 times), prepped the day away and started this morning! The day went great! But as I end the day I’m super tired and feel like a caffeine crash might hit me in the morning. I’m trying to focus on getting rid of my caffeine and sugar addiction this round. Drank some tea this morning but usually have loads of coffee and energy drinks. Looking forward to tomorrow’s crash!
