NatalieBA Posted February 17, 2014 Share Posted February 17, 2014 Well, today is Day 1 of my Whole 30. I am so excited to start, but I know it may be a challenge so I am keeping this log for accountability. And because I'm a big nerd who likes documenting stuff. I read ISWF about 3 weeks ago but then was going on vacation and staying in another country at my mother-in-law's for two weeks so I didn't get to start right away. I came home and after grocery shopping and attempting to do some food prep (didn't work out too well with a sick toddler but I got some done), I am starting today. Currently I have been eating primal "ish". I.e. Primal with the occasional beans, rice and peanut butter (and ice cream ). Challenges I forsee are: - My husband is out of town and will be for the duration of my W30. So I will have my toddler on my hands all the time when I'm not at work. Often I don't eat dinner until he is asleep (even when my husband is home) and then it ends up being either something my husband cooked or whatever is easy to throw together). Preparation is going to be important. - I had been intermitent fasting and not eating my first meal until around lunchtime or later usually. I want to follow W30 as written and not do this. I know IF is not neccesarily good for women either so I should see how i do without it for sure. It is an issue though that I bring my breakfast to eat at work and often am either not hungry or too busy to eat all morning. - I have a lot to do once my son goes to bed in the evening so I need to prioritise making healthy meals along with everything else. I waste too much time on the internet so I need to cut this out. For my W30 I am also going to avoid internet except: obviously for work (including my contract job i do on evenings and weekends so can't avoid totally at home), posting this log, and checking email. I will only go on Facebook if I get a notification i have a message or something. My goals: - Lose 5-10 pounds. I have not lost my pregnancy weight and my son in 19 months. Whatever I do, I am stuck at 160, I cannot get below this weight. Before pregnancy I was 140 but I exercised extensively (as a hobby) and do not have the time for it anymore! But I need to get to 150 to be happy with my weight... and I want to have a second baby soon but don't want to get pregnant with the extra weight. - Improve energy - Slay the sugar dragon and nighttime snacking Will post again later with my meals and how I feel.
