Zebarah Posted October 18, 2013 Share Posted October 18, 2013 It's currently Day 5 of my first Whole30, and I figure I should record all of my daily meals while I can remember them. Some of these may not be 100% correct, but I think they're pretty close. Day 1 (10/14) Breakfast Skipped - Poor planning (I decided that I would do the Whole 30 Sunday night immediately before bed) Lunch 2x Asian Chicken Thighs (NomNomPaleo) 3/4x Bag of Broccoli Dinner Samosa on Butter Lettuce (NomNomPaleo) 1/2x Bag of Brussels Sprouts Day 2 (10/15) Breakfast 1/3x Kale Quiche (Whole9) Lunch Samosa on Butter Lettuce (NomNomPaleo) 1/2x Bag of Brussels Sprouts Pre-Workout (Didn't actually go for my scheduled run because my partner doesn't run in the rain and I found out immediately after eating) 1x Handful of Almonds Dinner Samosa on Butter Lettuce (NomNomPaleo) 1x Tomato 1x Sweet Potato Day 3 (10/16) Breakfast 1/3x Kale Quiche (Whole9) 1/3x Empire Apple (It was too sweet for me to enjoy. I've never had an 'empire' apple before, so I don't know if it was the apple or the fact that I've had basically no sugar for 3 days.) Lunch Samosa on Butter Lettuce 1/2x Bag of Carrots, Broccoli & Cauliflower 1x Avocado 1x Slice of Honeydew Dinner Korean Style Short Ribs (NomNomPaleo) Day 4 (10/17) Breakfast 3x Scrambled Eggs 1x Avocado 1x Slice of Honeydew Lunch Samosa on Butter Lettuce 1/2x Bag of Carrots, Broccoli & Cauliflower 1x Slice of Honeydew Dinner Slow Cooker Korean Short Ribs (NomNomPaleo) (Holy cow, short ribs are expensive! And of course the next day I found an ad for them $2/lb cheaper than I paid. But they were delicious and literally fell of the bone.) 1/2x Bag of Pistachios (Kind of a 'no brakes' food for me, but I put them away when I needed to, though I probably had more than I needed. Next time I'll just grab a handful and put the bag away.) **Allergies hit me like a ton of bricks around 10am and didn't quit for the rest of the day. Pollen count was really low so I don't think it was that. I was at work at the beginning and home in the evening and it never stopped (even while driving), so I doubt it was something in my environment. I took an Allegra around one because I thought it would help and couldn't deal with it any more. I also had stomach issues from around 10 until 5. Day 5 (10/18) Breakfast 1/3x Quiche (Finished it off) Slices of different apples (Didn't particularly enjoy any of them, which is why I only had one slice of each) Lunch Samosa on Butter Lettuce (Finished it off) 1/2x Bag of Carrots, Broccoli, Sugar Snap Peas, and Water Chestnuts (I didn't even think to check if water chestnuts were compliant until after I ate them, but apparently they are, so I'm good) 1x Slice of Honeydew Dinner (I haven't actually eaten this yet, it's just what I'm planning on having) Slow Cooker Korean Short Ribs (NomNomPaleo) (Finished it off) 1/2x Bag of Carrots, Broccoli, Sugar Snap Peas, and Water Chestnuts 1x Tomato 1x Handful of pistachios **Allergies still somewhat bad this morning, though not as bad as yesterday. Took an Allegra shortly after waking up. As of around 11 I felt much better, though still a little sniffly. **This evening I'm leaving to go out of town for the weekend. This'll be the hard part. I've also had quite a bit of tea and coffee throughout the challenge. Fortunately I never sweetened either of them to begin with, so there wasn't really a transition. Though I haven't noticed that they both seem less bitter than they used to, probably due to the decline in my sugar consumption. I haven't worked out since I started, which has nothing to do with energy levels, just me being busy (and a little bit lazy). I plan to start out next week getting back into the exercise routine, since I've figured out that I prefer straight-up eggs (scrambled, over easy, etc.) to any kind of fancy dish that takes time to prepare. I'll get some sweet potatoes to eat after my workout, but I don't really know how I'm going to eat it shortly after my workout, since I'm probably 25 minutes from the first place I could heat them up. I haven't had any issues with being hungry yet, though I've continued to eat pretty much every meal after I was '80& full' (hara hachi bu). So even going from two meals to three (I pretty never ate breakfast before this) and eating until I normally would have at least intended to stop, I'm pretty sure that I'm eating less calories than I was before. Partially because sugar-rich foods are also calorie-dense, and partially because I haven't been drinking any calories. And just for the record, here are my measurements from the morning of Day 1. Height: 5'7" Weight: 155.6 lbs. Neck: 15" Chest: 39.25" Waist: 33.5" Hips: 34" Bicep: 12.5" Thigh: 21.5" Calf: 14.5" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
