  1. Day one is done. So I might as well say it...I’ve never been 100% happy with my body. Ever since I stopped rowing at 16 years old I found my relationship with food changed and it became more and more complicated to adjust the amount of food I ate to meet the energy needs of my body. I’ve had some great successes with WeightWatchers in the past and also with generally improving my exercise regime and diet, however two years ago I changed jobs and life has become very fast paced and pretty stressful since then. I’m now living in Spain, and my days are pretty long. I tend to get up around 0630 and try to get some exercise in if I’m not so tired that I can’t drag myself out of bed. Work is 9-7 with an hour long commute before and after (except for work from home days) so I end up eating dinner late and getting into bed even later. Since September 2018 I’ve become more and more aware of the negative impact that stress is having on my diet. I want to be in control of what I eat, I want to feel healthy, and I know that eating real food and making good dietary decisions will help me exercise more, cope better with stress and generally feel better overall. But I’ve been struggling with how to do this. WeightWatchers doesn’t work over here in Spain and I haven’t seen anything else or heard about any other diet which looks like it might work. It’s also worth saying that I’m a long standing migraine suffering suffer. Have been since I was about 7 or 8, and I’m getting really bored of it. The past year or so things have got worse and over the past six months I’d say I’m in pain around 60% of the time with either a migraine or headache. I like the idea that with whole30 I might actually identify some things that could be causing this pain. It’s not so much about losing weight anymore it’s about a shift in mindset improving the way that I think and react to feed and creating habits that are sustainable and make sense of my body. My husband left for China yesterday, he’s working over there for two months, so this felt like the right time to knuckle down and try to make this change happen. So that’s it, those are my reasons, and this is day one: FOOD: 0745 Morning detox tea 0930 MEAL 1: potato and mushrooms fried in olive oil with 50g smoked salmon, a fried egg and half a small avocado. Lady grey tea (black, no milk). Side of a handful of blueberries and raspberries combined 1400 MEAL 2: big salad...iceberg lettuce, lambs lettuce, rocket, red cabbage, cucumber, tomato, raisins, walnuts, pinenuts, chicken breast, hard-boiled egg, raspberries, basil infused olive oil 1800 Countess Grey tea (black) 2200 MEAL 3: beef carpaccio with olive oil and herb vinegrette, aubergines fried in olive oil with a handful of black olives, salt pepper garlic powder and oregano, two satsumas, sparkling water with lemon slices 2300 Chai tea with coconut cream (this substitute works nicely with the chai) 0000 Nighttime detox tea 2 litres of water. 7h 30mins sleep. EXERCISE: Aero yoga - I’m currently trying out lots of different classes with my gym pass. Today was an experience and a half...I’ll leave it there... HEADACHES: Woke up feeling like someone was splitting my head open like a coconut. Not good at all. Yesterday I juiced, I wanted to put a firm full stop at the end of my unhealthy habits. Headache could have been to do with missing my normal two cups of tea...or not having decent food. However I am also used to “weekend migraines”...they’re the best. Took Zomig tablet and cleared up a couple of hours later but groggy for the rest of the day. FEELINGS: I felt good in general today (apart from the migraine that plagued me for the first few hours). I’ve been pretty distracted and busy with various things all day which means that my mind hasn’t been on snacking or anything like that, however I felt full after eating each meal and haven’t felt the need to reach anything extra. my only concern is that perhaps my portion sizes have been too big, however my stomavh was definitely sending hunger signals at appropriate times.

    Starting today

    Today is day one for me. It’s 7am in San Diego. I’m feeling optimistic and not a little bit anxious about having to sit with (not eat/drink) my feelings for the next 30 days. Anyone else starting today?

    Wow this is going to be HUGE

    Hello everyone. I started today. It's gone ok, I had sugar cravings but didn't die from them. I ate 1 larabar, one of the compliant ones. I figure it's better to dive in and use them as I get used to no cookies or bread or health bars containing sugar... Or should I start my whole30 on the first day I can make it through without eating a larabar to stave off my sugar craving? Thanks, Jessica

    Whole30 Day One

    I kept putting off going to the grocery store because I knew once I went it was game on. I could not fail (these very important, for my well being) 30 days. Day one went relatively smooth. Did not enjoy so much time preparing meals. Lots of slicing and dicing. But everything I made, which was in their second book, Day One receipes were so tasty and actually easy to make. My biggest triumphs for this first day are having breakfast and lunch. Most days I just have a dinner meal and snack and graze the day before dinner. No creamer in my coffee which wasn't as big a deal as I expected. Anyone else out there just started their journey of Whole 30.

    Day 1 = 4 March... anyone else?

    Just wanted to say hello! I will be starting tomorrow (hitting the market on the way home, with list in-hand) and if anyone wants a long-distance absolute stranger as a partner: here I am! I've done vegan on/off for 12 years or so, anywhere from a few weeks to a few years in duration. I usually ended up adding seafood in at some point because I was not very good about non-animal protein. I think that vegan is probably going to be easier than this... no bread! No pasta! No oreos?! (Yes, a surprising "vegan" food-- that's how fake they are!) I've been working out for months now, and I've always been on/off with that as well-- based on my current social life, relationship, work life, etc. Since I'm living the solo life, it's pretty easy to find time and motivation to go the gym. I mean, in SoCal, who DOESN'T work out? Also, it will be hard to turn down drinks with friends-- that's an integral part of life here. So, we'll see how that goes. I'm excited to see how this helps my fitness results-- should be good stuff. Good luck! Michelle

    Here we go!!!!

    So initially I was going to start W30 last Monday, but fiance had to go out of town, we both wanted to do it and start really strong, so we pushed our start back to today. We are so excited and READY!! Excited to be on this journey for the next 30 days.
  7. So I just finished my breakfast, which consisted of all natural bacon and one scrambled egg. I have no problem with breakfast (except giving up my beloved Starbucks) but it is later in the day that I have the trouble! I am a very busy person who is constantly on the go and literally live off of protein fruit smoothies and Starbucks. I do not know what I am going to replace them with! I am already about 80% paleo because I cannot eat many processed foods due to stomach issues. However, I do always drink tall caramel frapp. lites from Starbucks...I have never seen the issue with them because they are only 90 calories. But now I can't have them However, I am determined to do this Whole30 right! I am going to need some of you guys' support on here to hold me accountable! Here's to Day One!
