    Daryl Mitchell got a reaction from Weredragon in Whole 30 starting Jan 1   
    I started a Whole "whatever." I have done 3 Whole 30's in the past but want to go longer this time. I turn 40 in March and looking to go till then. I have started cooking my meats for salads/meals, sweet potatos for post wod recovery and gathering a few new recipes here and there. Time to settle in for the long haul.

    It seems my stomach is finally calming down.  I am falling asleep quickly but not sure I am sleeping well.  Yesterday's WOD was rough on the energy level and I found myself adding in an extra banana as I really felt depeleted.  I need to focus more on the healthy fats as much as possible.  I think the big win for me this go around is adding new veggies and really focusing on eating as many of them as possible.  I have been into roasting brussels sprouts, and also new dishes, other than spanish "rice" using rice'd cauliflower.  I also bought an Jicama and have been looking at a few recipes to try with it. At least we are almost 1/2 way done.  This is my 3rd Whole 30 and think it is a lot easier in some ways but has been harder in others due to a lot of life related stress that has come up lately.

    I never start out giving up coffee, but it has been a positive "side-effect" for me in my prior two Whole 30's.  I do however try to cut-back from 2 cups of coffee a day to 1 immediately and then transition to decalf for a day or two (blah).  By the end of the 2nd week I am back to just water or sometimes tea.

    I am starting my 3rd Whole 30 tomorrow as well.  To many summer drinks and "paleo treats" have me feeling down and out.  It is time to get back to feeling great.

    This is also my 2nd go around. I gained a few pounds over the holidays even though I eat primarily eat Paleo. Too many Paleo cookies and some diversion off the road with drinks. My challenge will be to take my best friend out for his bachelor party and stay Whole 30. I can use the excuse of being the designated driver though.
    I do Crossfit but was having medical issues during that time on my first run and still lost 12lbs. I hope that now that I am back to Crossfit 5 days a week that doing the Whole 30 will greatly improve how I feel and the over-all results, even if it is just losing the holiday weight. I have been working through the pre/post work-out food more this go around and hope to try new recipes. I had too many go-to recipes last go around and it did get a bit boring. I want to liven it up.
    Good luck everyone!

    Am doing my best to stick with this as I do feel better physically (minus the twinge in my belly) when I eat this way......so home for some saute'd chicken and veggies.
