  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.
  2. Michelle in San Diego

    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?
