Anakei Posted January 8, 2014 Share Posted January 8, 2014 I am on Day 7 and I'm starting this late because I don't have enough motivation at the end of a long day to sit at my lap top and type. Today i got home at a reasonable time and had a nap so I feel able to share. My motivation to do the whole30 is twofold, 1, to really take control of my eating and 2, I want to stop taking antibiotics every day for my rosacea flare ups so I am hoping being dairy free will help. Also I hare a bit of baby weight to lose - my baby turned 21 last week! I am in a fast moving high stress job which means I am up at 5 am to get to work at 6 am. I often don't finish work until 4 or 5 pm and then its shopping, home, cook a meal, do the washing and into bed by 9 - absolutely knackered. I started Atkins about 3 years ago and then morphed into paleo after stumbling across Marks Daily Apple. I feel really annoyed at all my wasted years joining weight watchers over and over again ( the definition of insanity!) and never keeping the weight off, Atkins was a huge improvement but I was still looking for something that fitted with my more organic whole food approach. Paleo was it! I am 80/20 paleo with dairy being the majority of the 20% , and living with a non compliant family means I often have access to chocolate and chippies which are my biggest weaknesses. Any way so far I have been on plan meals are typically M1 2 egg omelette with spinach 2 coffees in the morning with coconut milk. drinks through out the day are green and jasmine teas. M2 chicken thigh with home made coleslaw with homemade mayo m3 Homemade chilli con carne, no kidney beans, on a bed of green vegetables. Fruit this week strawberries and melon So far I have stuck to plan with 1 exception - I keep weighing myself. I know - still a cheat!! But I have lost over a kilo. I am just going to make a curry to put in the crock pot tomorrow morning so that will be dinner sorted tomorrow. I'll check in again soon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
