PaleoNewbie Posted July 13, 2012 Share Posted July 13, 2012 Okay so here we are Day 1. Lets start off with an introduction to some of my daily symptoms that I will be assessing throughout this process. I have chronic headaches, light headedness, and all kinds of stomach problems from Nausea to Reflux. I am young and work out 3-4 times a week, recently doing Crossfit. None of these symptoms make sense and I am hoping that through this Whole30 I will start to see a change. Also in the spirit of honesty, my husband and I tried to start the whole 30 about a month ago and we went strong for about....5 days. Then due to a lack of poor planning we got off track. That said we have been doing about a half 30 ; ) since then. Yesterday we decided to finally commit to this and I know that the only way this will work now is to PLAN PLAN PLAN...and to write in this log to keep me accountable. Was this too long winded? I promise this is the one and only time I will write this much, but I think a little background is necessary to understand someones Whole30 journey. So here we go.... Day 1 Breakfast: Chorizo and Eggs + 1/2 Cup Coffee Hungry again 2 hours later: Had some carrots and snap peas (I later read that a snack should not be just veggies or fruit) Lunch: Red and Green Peppers, Zucchini, with lime sauce and ground beef Not feeling great an hour later: hungry and had a headache. I waited and hour to see if it was just a sugar craving and it didn't go away. Finally, had a little more of my lunch and my emergency Larabar. Dinner: Spaghetti Squash with tomatoes and peppers and ground beef Workout after dinner had a Larabar Post workout. Conclusions: I am finding that I need to figure out the right balance of food for the day so that I don't get hungry in between meals I'm thinking maybe I need more fat in my diet? Thoughts? Feelings: No cravings today. Excited and Nervous Symptoms: Headache and Lightheadness A little Nausea Here's to tomorrow and another day staying strong!
