    Tevenie's Whole30 Diary

    Hi MadyVanilla, thanks so much for your reply! That is a great idea about tracking pain and energy levels - I will definitely do that. I forgot to post yesterday, but I am still here, still compliant and excited about it. I have learnt that I eat out of boredom, I eat when I am thirsty, I eat to reward myself because it is Friday, Saturday or, my favourite, on Sunday I eat because it is Monday tomorrow! lol how daft! I eat because I spend two hours a day in the car and out of boredom, not hunger, I shovel snacks into my mouth - rice crackers, nuts, CHOCOLATE in any shape or form. Occasionally I eat fruit in a bid to be more healthy but it doesn't last long in the face of the sugar dragon. Luckily I love water so instead of snacking I am drinking water, but I am now so much more aware of what I am doing that I think I can curb it in the future. Anyway, yesterday I had Breakfast: Baked Eggs & Tomatoes with Mushrooms and half an avocado Lunch: No lunch because I was cleaning drains and I couldn't bear to eat after that job... Dinner: steak, steamed courgettes and a small potato with homemade mayo Today, I have had Breakfast: Egg. bacon, tomato, mushrooms and some leftover potato from last night - a good Sunday breakfast!E No lunch as breakfast was very late Dinner: Baked salmon, baked potato, homemade coleslaw. Rock on Whole 30! Energy and Pain levels: small amount of pain in my right leg but the pain in my left arm has definitely improved since the arm swinging exercises in Tai Chi on Thursday. I must remember this when it comes to Thursday afternoon and I am trying to bunk-off again! Picture of my delicious breakfast for fun!

    Day Three and the headache is gone, thank goodness! I really wanted to skip my Tai Chi class last night, and I was making all sorts of bargains with myself on the way home, but then I thought in the spirit of Whole 30, I'd just do it and I am glad I did. It was fun and I am looking forward to the next one. Breakfast: Tinned mackerel (I love my fish!) Lunch: Chicken stuffed with aubergine pesto and wrapped in bacon, assorted vegetables and half an avocado. Dinner: Ribeye Steak with a baked potato and homemade coleslaw - I am excited about this one! Happy Weekend to anyone reading this! x

    Hello, my name is Tevenie and I AM GOING TO DO A FULL Whole 30! I have Multiple Sclerosis and am very overweight which is one of the worst things you can be with MS, apart from smoking. I have tried every diet / food fad / ridiculous thing under the sun - none of which work because I try to be overly restrictive and then I get totally overwhelmed and binge on rubbish. Today is Day 1. Breakfast: Tinned sardines in tomato sauce, black coffee Lunch: Chicken stuffed with Aubergine Pesto, wrapped in bacon with roasted onion, brussels sprouts, tomato, courgette, and yellow pepper. Dinner: Butternut squash stuffed with mushrooms, walnuts, and onions with fresh sage. I am determined to do this! Tevenie
