    CrossFit, my dog, eating a lot of good food
  1. July 1 Support Thread

    Day 2! Day 1 went well for me, but I was super tired at work in the evening. I def didn't get enough carbs in at dinner....I simply don't have enough time to eat during my break (30 minutes), by the time I run to the bathroom, get to the break room, and pop my meal in the microwave. Can anyone recommend me something that's quick to eat? Whenever I've had this happen I'm usually eating something as simple as meat and veggies (yesterday it was two burgers with green beans and ghee over the whole thing). Hope you guys have a great Day 2!
  2. Rewards

    If you've signed up for the Whole30 Daily, there's a great bit on Day 15 about rewarding yourself along the way. (:

    Hey, guys! I'm starting a Whole45 today. Day 46 will see my cousin getting married, and I would like to feel my best for the celebration and for my skin to look good for the pictures! I've done a few Whole30s over the past couple of years, and recently tried for a Whole60 which didn't work out. /: But I'm back at it again after falling off the wagon pretty hardcore. I'm 27, do CrossFit on occasion, enjoy walking my dog and horseback riding. I struggle with depression but have seen a positive change in that since incorporating a lot of Whole9 factors into my life. (:
  4. 3 meals on a short day

    I woke up with a very similar question! But wasn't sure what category to post it in until I saw this. lol Sometimes I'll sleep too late and need to get to work within three or four hours. Is it better to cram in two small meals before work (then one at work around six or seven in the evening), or have one large meal before work and one large meal at work?
  5. Phone Apps?

    This app is handy with finding local seasonal produce. (:

  7. Whole30 daily

    The Whole30 Daily is amazing! I definitely recommend signing up for it. (;
  8. Whole30 Take 2!

    Howdy, all! I did a Whole21 back in December. It was supposed to be my first Whole30, and I stuck to the right foods through Day 30, but my cravings went crazy (I think it was an "extinction burst.") during the fourth week and I had waaaay too much I didn't count my last week. Toward the end, I contemplated doing a Whole45 starting March first. However, my eating has not been the best lately, though I certainly learned a lot from my Whole21 and have incorporated many different Whole9 aspects into my lifestyle. Nevertheless, I have decided I want to complete a Whole30 before summer. Also, I did my first mud run a few weeks ago and am looking to do another in a little less than three months. This new mud run is much tougher and I want to feel my best so I can have the most fun! This time around I plan to keep a food log on here, re-read ISWF, and restart my Whole30 Daily e-mails. My goals for my Whole30 Take 2 are: 1) Get to the gym at least three days per week. 2) Turn off my phone and computer by 9:00pm most nights of the week.

    That's an awesome goal, Dan! Be sure to keep us updated on how everything goes. (^ ^) And happy soon-to-be-35th birthday!
  10. I recently finished my first Whole30. However, I want to say it was only a Whole23 or so, because for the last week I ate way too much fruit. I think I was experiencing the "extinction burst" and was confused about what was happening. Soooo, today, bad stuff happened. It started with a paleo Krunch. I had two eggs for breakfast and needed something else. I didn't have any sweet potatoes or squash pre-cooked and didn't feel like waiting to fix something anyway. I thought a Krunch was the perfect thing to re-introduce into my diet. So I ate one. But then I had two more. And some coffee cake. Then later, pizza and ice cream were calling my name! Oy vey. Now that I went on a bit of a sugar bender, I'm thinking that another Whole30 is in order. This time, with little to no fruit and lots of sleep! What think you all? Is it a good idea to do another Whole30 right after a "Whole23+" or would it be better to get myself back on track with just a Whole7 or Whole15?

    End of Week Four! The meh... -I still wake up kind of tired. -My cravings have been off the charts since about day 23! I have rarely had cravings this severe. Arrrggakjkdsljfaskl! The AWESOME... -My GI tract is finally figuring things out! -I wake up at nearly the same time everyday...7:00am, perfect. (^ ^) -My scent has changed. Despite sweating like a crazy-sweating-thing after every work out, I still smell...nice. -I have had sensitivity issues with my teeth for years, and about two years ago, I found out that I have periodontal disease. The sensitivity issues are gone. Gone. O: Maybe I'm just caught up in the Whole30 awesomeness, but I'm already planning my next Whole30! I'm thinking of starting a Whole45 March 1st!
  14. Strange Behavior from a Vegetarian Friend

    Thank you, guys! All of your responses were really helpful. (^ ^)
  15. I was a vegetarian for over 11 years, but since the spring have been eating paleo. I have been having trouble with a vegetarian friend's behavior recently and could use some advice. This friend and I have known each other at least a year now, maybe even two. We met at our CrossFit gym and had an initial connection because we were both vegetarians at the time and love animals. We have been friends on Facebook for quite some time, until a few months ago. Before ever switching to paleo, I had been posting paleo articles on my personal Facebook page and on my Facebook health and wellness page. For over a year, before switching, I did research on the paleo diet. Our box did its first paleo challenge this time last year and before that, my family had been experimenting with paleo (with great results!) Some time in the fall, this friend replied to a paleo-related post on my personal Facebook page asking if I had started eating paleo too. I replied that after researching it for over a year, I had switched to paleo, but that I only eat animals who have been humanely raised. Shortly after this I noticed that we were no longer friends on Facebook. I sent her a friend request (as I know sometimes people accidentally unfriend others, I've done it myself!). For at least two months, she did not respond to my request. Finally, about a month ago, I resent the request and she accepted it. Yesterday, I noticed that she was no longer a fan of my health and wellness Facebook page, so I invited her to like it. She replied with: "Thanks for the invite Sara, but I must decline. It represents a dietary lifestyle that goes against my moral ethics and value for ALL life." My health and wellness page does not only cover paleo. I encourage postings of various healthy diets. (I respond to her as such.) I also often post about animal welfare and non-diet related topics. I rarely see this friend at the gym anymore so we've not had good lines for communication lately. I appreciate and value all life (the main reason I became a vegetarian). This is also one of my favorite aspects of paleo and Whole9. It teaches you to live your life and respect the lives of others. Before switching to paleo and discovering the Whole9, I struggled with depression, suicidal thoughts, and eating and skin disorders. I was on antidepressants, steroid creams for my skin, and was simply not happy. Would it have been better for me to remain a vegetarian and encourage the use of products that surely were tested on animals and developed through their abuse? Or is it better that I now am healthy and happy because I consume healthy animals who lived happy, full (I don't eat baby animals) lives? I think my friend feels betrayed and I can understand, but I don't believe she treats others this way. What should I do (if anything at all)?
