SaraG Posted June 26, 2013 Share Posted June 26, 2013 Today is Day 30. I'm very proud of myself for committing and completing. I've pre-made all my food for today--not taking any chances. I've noticed over the past week, that my energy has been low and I've had a general feeling of blah...just not feeling good. But I had been feeling good/great at the half-way mark. So I have a little detective work to do. After today, I'm going to continue eating on plan, while I figure out what has changed in the past week or two. I'm writing here to encourage people starting out to keep a food log, either here or on paper. I've kept a food log since day one, and I'm going to use it to identify any changes I may have made. As I wrote in my food journal this morning, I've come up with eight things that may have affected my energy. I've stayed true to the plan, the food template, and the spirit of Whole30 throughout. However, I have seen several small changes. For example, when I started, I was eating 3 eggs every day. This last half, I switched to meat in the morning--not consciously, just a taste preference. So, I'm looking at things like that. My point is, without my food journal, I wouldn't remember everything I'd been eating,drinking, supplementing or in what quantities, as well as how I felt each day. I feel like by having a record of my personal food/drink/supplement choices, I don't have to try random suggestions. I can systematically work with my food to try and achieve that great feeling again. My best to everyone on this journey! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
