Jinkse21 Posted June 10, 2013 Share Posted June 10, 2013 Day 1 - Take 2 with a Punch! When I started my first Whole30, I thought it'd be one and done! By the end, I made the decision to follow the Paleo lifestyle as much as possible with a few Whole30s throughout the year as a reset. I never thought that would happen! Stick with a "diet" that doesn't allow me to eat pasta, breads, soy, black beans??? Am I crazy?? I do believe I am! Over the last month, I took some freedoms that I am now paying the price for...wine, some dairy, added sugar, beer, a hamburger bun, crackers...all resulted in knee pain coming back, more RA flare-ups than I like, skin irritation on the back of my hands, horrible allergies, and finding a few pounds I had previously lost. While I have still been making much better choices than before, I find it easier to make those "bad" choices again. Whole30 helps keep that in check and reminds me why I need to take better care of myself! After reading some of the posts on here about AIP, I decided I needed to give it a go for the first 10 days of my Whole 24 (leads up to 4th of July weekend away)! It won't be that difficult since I don't really eat a lot of peppers and tomatoes but I will miss my eggs, sweet potatoes and Ghee. But it's only for 10 days, right?? I think I'll live...I'll just have to get more creative with my cooking! Got on the scale this morning...191.9. Blah! Hoping to see some loss but have to keep reminding myself that weightloss is just a good side-effect of the plan. Now to keep my feet from stepping on the scale! Breakfast: 3 slices Applegate Naturals Roast Beef 3 slices Private Selection Prosciutto 2 100-calorie packs on Wholly Guacamole Carrot and Zucchini sticks I was getting ready to cut into some hard-boiled eggs this morning when I remembered that I couldn't have them. My husband will be happy since he'll be able to eat all of them! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
