lauraw456 Posted January 9, 2014 Share Posted January 9, 2014 Day 1: Scale-Shock It's my first day on Whole30 and I am both super-terrified and super-excited. As I've said before, I am quite possibly the worst eater EVER! I'm actually surprised that I'm not a diabetic. My moment of truth came when I received my yearly health assessment from my employer that said I now fall into the obese category. Ouch! So I spent 4 1/2 hours in the kitchen last night preparing my breakfast and lunch for the next several days. Had I really thought this through, I would have left my meat out thawing yesterday morning so I didn't waste so much time staring at frozen meat and being really frustrated, but I'll know better next time. This morning I jumped on the scale as soon as I got up. How in the world did I get here???!!! I put that sucker far FAR away and am looking forward to not having to see it again for 30 days! Then I took my before pics, and all I can say is OMG...I really had no idea I looked like that! Failure is just not going to be an option for me! Meal 1:Paleo Breakfast Cups with 2 modifications. First, I cooked mine in a casserole dish because it was just easier and quicker for me. Second, I couldn't find breakfast sausage that didn't have ANY sugar, so I made my own using this recipe (using ground turkey instead of pork): http://healthylivinghowto.com/1/post/2012/07/say-goodbye-to-jimmy-dean.html. I have to say here that this was sooooo good! I like eggs but I get tired of them very quickly. This had so much meat in it that I really didn't even notice that it was an egg-based casserole. But it was VERY pepper-y (black pepper that is). VERY! I'm not sure if it's because I made my own sausage or if that's just the way the recipe was written, but I would not have changed one thing. De-lish!12 cherry tomatoes (because I knew I didn't get enough veggies from the casserole)After finishing my breakfast, I had a cup (or 4) of coffee with cocount milk. It wasn't awesome, but definitely better than no coffee at all. I will surely get used to it. 4 cups is not the norm for me...that was kind of a double-whammy. I must admit that when I poured plain old cow's milk for my children this morning and didn't add any to my coffe, I kinda felt like I was neglecting an old, faithful friend. Meal 2:Paleo Shake 'n Bake ChickenGreen Goddess Cauli Rice (this was a very interesting flavor...tomorrow I will add a little Frank's Red Hot Sauce)Mixed berriesSo so good! 2:00 CRASH!...This is where I would usually down a 20 oz Diet Dr Pepper from that blasted vending machine in my office. Now I'm just sucking down as much extra water as I can and dying to get out of here and cook dinner. I'm not hungry...I just want something with some flavor...something besides H20! Meal 3:No-Fuss Salmon Cakes from ISWF (These were phenomenal!!!)Roasted AsparagusSpaghetti Squash (my first time with spaghetti squash...will be doing this again) I even worked in a 20 minute jog on the treadmill...go me! There was honestly nothing I ate today that I didn't really enjoy. As I was salivating over salmon patties, I started feeling a little guilty because I really enjoyed eating today...enjoyed it a lot. I need some Moderator out there to tell me what I did wrong... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
