dboothsummers Posted April 11, 2012 Share Posted April 11, 2012 Well, the Whole30 has empowered me to do something I have never, ever done in my life. Go two FULL days without the staples of my diet: Diet Coke, grains (oatmeal and couscous, mostly), sugar (in EVERYTHING) and dairy (goat cheese nom nom). I have literally never done that before. I have 25 lbs to lose and even if I don't lose anything on this whole30, I know the key to changing my relationship with food forever is to slay the sugar dragon. I've literally tried every other diet on the planet. My nutrition wasn't terrible but I definitely prefered black beans and couscous with spinach and onions to a piece of chicken. Day 1: I was so zonked I couldn't wake up in time to WOD. Breakfast: sausage/butternut squash hash cooked in coconut milk. made me want to gag (my usual breakfast is a 100 cal pack of oatmeal and fruit) Lunch: roast chicken, steamed green beans, roasted cauliflower, sprinkled w sunflower seeds and homemade balsamic. mmmmm. snack: apple, HB egg, a couple of macadamia nuts dinner: chocolate chili & cauliflower fouscous (both from theclothesmakethegirl.com) snack: handful of strawberries i also had at least four cups of tea I was in bed by 9. Day 2: again, zonked. major headaches. Breakfast: 3 eggs with spinach, tomato, onion, mushrooms lunch: grilled chicken salad w/ balsamic and sunflower seeds snack: strawberries and macadamia nuts dinner: chocolate chili, salad with pomegranate seeds (yum!), sweet potato snack: strawberries lots of tea, fell asleep on the couch at 715 (!!!) felt like absolute hell most of the day, unshakeable headaches Day 3: another day, another missed WOD because I'm SO DANG TIRED. Breakfast: 2 HB eggs and a sweet potato... my first black coffee! oh coffee i missed you!! you're not so bad w/o splenda! lunch (planned): braised short ribs, zucchini, squash snack (planned): pear and macadamia nuts dinner: ground beef patty w/ guacamole, salad, sweet potato snack: blackberries so question... am i eating too much, too little of anything? what can i do to make myself get up for my 615 WODs? going to bed earlier clearly isn't the answer.
