    Day 21 + Thinking about wine...

    Well, I'm now a couple of weeks POST my first Whole30. Wine hasn't been the struggle that I thought it would be. My tolerance is so much lower and what were formerly "normal amounts" make me feel just gross, so it's been easy to stop with the wine. But I find myself not knowing how to set boundaries around ANY kinds of "treats" or "rewards." Heck, I am one who finds a reason to celebrate every day, which is really why I was checking back in with the forum. I plan to do a full whole30 again in January, but man, how to behave for these six weeks of holidays coming up???!!!?? I feel so screwy in my head!

    Timing of breakfast when working out

    I'm heading back into the gym in earnest this week, but I went with the intention of NOT being intense as my back is still not at 100%. I did row a couple of miles and kept my HR at a 5-6 or so on the 1-10 RPE scale. I had an egg and some coconut oil in my coffee, and I also had a meal size serving of meat and a boiled potato after. Can't say I was hungry for breakfast, but I ate it anyway. This is all still right?

    Thanks for that honest feedback SpunkyBug.
  5. As I near the end of my first Whole30, I'm thinking about what I'm doing differently now. For sure, I'm not consuming 12-24 ounces of wine multiple times/week. As I think through whether I have a "healthy psychological response" to wine, I would veer away from saying yes. If I have one, I want two. If I have three, I want four. Aside from completely giving up wine, what are some ways you consider drawing boundaries around your "no brakes" foods and drinks so you can learn to have a healthy relationship with them? Thanks!

    Timing of breakfast when working out

    @Kirkor "What kind of workout? I'm a CrossFitter. I'm taking things a little easy this week because I hurt my back last week. In general, 15-25 minute workouts at a high intensity.
  7. I've read in the Whole30 book that I should definitely eat something before working out, and something after working out too. But it also refers to this meal as an "extra" or "bonus" meal. I work out at 5:30AM. So I had a little protein and fat before, and a little after working out, including a carby veggie. Were these two my breakfast? Or am I supposed to also eat again for breakfast? I am confused.

    Am I eating enough?

    @missmary - what if I'm not hungry though? Should I skip a meal? Eat smaller portions?

    Am I eating enough?

    @jmcbn, two days of eating breakfast, and I'm hitting a caloric goal for someone working to lose weight (which I am). But man it's hard. I'm still not feeling hungry. I did strain my back at the gym on Monday, so I haven't worked out since then. Could it be that all of this delicious fat I'm eating is keeping me satisfied?

    Am I eating enough?

    Okay. I'll do better. Thank you for the feedback.
  11. I'm finishing day 7 of my first Whole30. I try to track what I'm eating just because I like to. I'm noticing that I'm eating around 850 calories. I'm not really hungry, and I've got weight to lose. But is this too few? Sometimes I'm skipping breakfast?? I guess I could make sure I get that in? Does it matter if I don't feel hungry?
