This is my first time doing whole30. I went through the bloating, tired, cranky, and then saw some energy with better sleep. But this week I haven't felt great. I've been doing 3 personal training workouts a week which makes me incredibly sore. I also teach so I know that causes some stress. It's highly unmotivating seeing as that i'm already half way through. I've tried my best to not cheat but I might have unknowingly??. I'm getting worried and confused as to why i'm so tired/cranky/don't feel like i've lost any weight. I know that weight loss isn't the main focus but I thought going from drinking almost every night to nothing and totally changing my diet I would feel some pounds come off!
Here's what I had today as an example:
7:30 breakfast: 2 egg cups, handful of sweet potato hash, half an avocado, half a grapefruit. coffee with nutpods
10:00 mid morning snack: banana or apple with almond butter
11:40 Lunch: leftovers from dinner or premade whole30 meal from Territory (similar to snap kitchen) examples: stir fry with cauliflower rice, spaghetti squash with ground turkey
3:00 Mid afternoon snack: epic meat stick, or pork and sage balls before I go workout. Was doing an apple with almond butter but tried to stop having fruit after lunch.
7:00 Dinner: burger with mayo, lettuce, sweet potatoes, avocado, and maybe one slice of bacon
Is there anything that I can be doing differently to see the energy spark in the last 12 days? I would greatly appreciate any help!! I workout after I get done teaching. I do have a pre workout (promix) because of the high intensity of it all. Could just 10.5g be ruining my results? If it is I can stop drinking it!
Please help make the tiger blood happen!! Thank you!!
