Meg Hamilton Posted July 10, 2012 Share Posted July 10, 2012 So it's Day 6 and now is a good time to start logging my food & experience with my first Whole30!! Back in May 2010, a friend and I went to a nutrition seminar in Durham, NC put on by Melissa & Dallas. I was *very* excited about the program, but was concerned about getting grass-fed meats. I lived in Fayetteville at the time and the closest Whole Foods/Trader Joe's was about 2hr away. I did the best I could and ate pretty well, but didn't start the Whole30 b/c I had a trip to Puerto Rico planned and wanted to be able to eat & drink whatever I wanted. Okay, I guess make that drink as much as I wanted. Fast forward a few months, I met my current husband and a few months later I got pregnant with Lizzie. We were eating Primally back then and I think that's how I got pregnant so easily. I got back on the grain-wagon while I was pregnant simply because I couldn't stomach anything else besides mashed potatoes, ramen noodles & pasta with red sauce. I moved over to Coastal NC and there are even LESS choices for grass-fed/organic foods in my area. I had Lizzie in May 2011, started eating healthy foods again, cut out the grains and lost a few pounds. I started working out again (been doing Crossfit since 2009) and BAM!!! Pregnant again. I did a lot better food-wise with my second pregnancy, I had much less morning sickness and did well without grains. But I never passed up cookies or ice cream. Izaiah was due May 18, 2012 but at my 39 week appointment on May 11, the doctors couldn't find his heartbeat on the NST nor on the ultrasound. I had him May 12 and the umbilical cord was wrapped tightly around his neck. We were just devastated. My husband has been very supportive, but he's angry, hell, both of us are angry. I'm back to work and was cleared for working out back in June. I stopped dilly-dallying and started Paleo (including diet cokes and splenda in coffee) mid-June. I also started WOD-ing again. I have lost so much strength from back-to-back pregnancies and I'm trying to get that back. I have always been "thick" and have 25lb to my pre-pregnancy weight back in 2010. I've lost 30lb since May, but 8.5lb of that was Izaiah. I ordered ISWF and started reading it and just kinda slipped into my Whole30. As I read it, I would become increasingly strict in my food choices while grocery shopping. AND a new Whole Foods opened in the city 45 minutes away!!! I am so happy I can get grass-fed meat if I don't make it to the farmer's market on Saturday. That's my basic story, I'll post my food and my WODs everyday (or whenever I remember).
