SalsaEzz Posted February 3, 2014 Share Posted February 3, 2014 Setting this up now to get started next Monday 10th! Have been planning this for quite a while.. already eating 'clean' but haven't yet cut grains and dairy... or the occasional wine. Looking forward to the full Whole30 starting next week! -- Today is now Day 1 and I thought I would leave a little note for myself to remember how I was feeling when I get to Day 30. Of course I don't expect a miracle cure for all these things - but more so I can compare at the end if I've had any improvement. Issues of note: - Last night I had a terrible nights sleep, after a few low carb beers through the afternoon went to be exhausted but 'wired' and tossed and turned all night. For lunch I had eggs benedict on an english muffin and dinner was a piece of frozen fish (steamed) and brown rice. - my skin is not amazing, but not terrible, I do suffer redness around the nose/chin area that I would like to see resolved and a bit of a break out on the chin - After a few drinks Friday & Saturday, and reasonably portioned Mexican dinner Saturday, I had terrible stomach pain Saturday & Sunday immediately on waking. Gassy/bloated you know the deal. - Sneezing and congested (this new allergy I have??), every day this week my nose has been full of dried mucous (sorry!) for NO APPARENT REASON. Throughout the day I also experience congestion. This has been on and off for about four months and I suspect the trigger is wheat or alcohol/wine - I've lost 4.4kg since January 2nd (5.5 weeks) by mostly clean eating. - I've had 2.5 weeks of total rest due to injury to my ribs/internal obliques (MRI results tonight). Looking forward to recovery and slowly easing back into training this week. The pain radiating into my groin is the worst. - My ankle sprain from April 2014 still causes me daily pain, even while resting from training. - I have definitely noticed that I've been feeling tired all the time, even without hectic training scheduled - Walking up the stairs at home makes my legs ache, even though I am not training currently - Undiagnosed issue (after lots of scans and tests) around the feeling that I need to pee all the time. Has abated since initial flare up (Nov 2013) but still doesn't feel resolved. Right now, have drunk 300mls of water, feeling is a full/irritated bladder type feeling. - current injury is my second major soft tissue injury from salsa training within a 12 month period - obviously the whole 30 isn't long enough for me to see a difference but a reduction in injuries in the long run is definitely a goal! - I have 'bad shoulders' for no apparent reason - tendinitis and inflammation with my lifts or also show moves - Ongoing issues (2 years +) with my right hip/glutes/hamstring/quad - Sometimes I feel foggy and bleary eyed even when I know I am well rested - No matter when I go to bed, getting up before 8.00am is an absolute struggle to get out of bed Whole 30... change my life!!! I'm ready!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
