I just got back from the store with the healthiest looking grocery cart O think I have ever had. I'm both excited and nervous for this to begin. Nervous to step on the scale tonight to get my initial number and afraid I'll let myself down. However my overwhelming feeling is excitement and a reset.
Hello! This is my first whole 30 and I am on day 12. Everything for the most part is going well so far, with the exception that I am getting SO hungry in the afternoons. I am not a super big woman; I'm 25 and 130 pounds (trying to lose a couple pounds/tone up). I feel like I have been eating MORE than usual and I am still hungry! For example, today I had~ - 3 eggs with spinach for breakfast (7am) - an apple and cashews at snack (10am) - mayo tuna salad & veggies with balsamic and oil (12 pm) then came home from work and was STARVING around 3 pm.. - and ate an RX Bar, 3 slices of turkey, and about 10 carrots HELP! Am I doing something wrong? Am I eating at the wrong time, or the wrong things? I would love advice on what could make me any less hungry in the afternoon so that I don't have to snack as much before dinner? Thank you!
I've got the books, I'm making my grocery list and meal plan (I'm a meal planner from way back!) and I'm ready to get started! But not until Wednesday because I've got to go to the grocery store and clean out the pantry tomorrow. I've printed off the 30 day calendar for DH so he knows when to expect my demons! I have a feeling my family isn't going to love this journey, especially my carb loving 8 year old, but my DH is awesome so hopefully he can keep me on track and talk me out of whatever holes I fall into. I'm a little nervous though because I have other food issues too, I can't eat eggs or seafood so a lot of recipes are out. I've gotten pretty good at adapting seafood recipes to chicken recipes, but breakfast has me a little worried. I tend to not leave myself a lot of time to eat trying to get the kids to school so I need to come up with some easy, no cooking required breakfast options. I'm thinking I need to cook some vegetable mixes at night and reheat the next morning, maybe with some sausage added. Anyway, I'm looking forward to it/not looking forward to it at the same time. I'd love to see some improvement in some random symptoms I've had for years that multiple tests have been unable to determine the causes of, I'm tired of every test coming back normal. So I'm jumping in with both feet! Let's do this!
