yummymumma Posted March 3, 2014 Share Posted March 3, 2014 A little about me: I'm a 23 y/o mom to two beautiful girls, 5.5 years and 9 months. The younger is still very much nursing. I was mostly paleo while pregnant and felt amazing, even lost fat, and had incredible health and a very simple, easy delivery. I lost my 15 lbs of pg weight within 2 weeks, but due to falling 'off the wagon' since her delivery and stress-eating my way through perpetual exhaustion with poor food choices mostly ever since, I've gained a lot of fat weight (though I'm only up 3 lbs, I've totally lost my lean-ness.) My goal is to lose 20 lbs by early May, while feeling good and maintaining a decent milk supply. One of the things I'm being more mindful about is staying away from nuts/nut butters as anything but a snack or addition to a meal, since I have in the past relied on them for their sweetness and overused them. Also, to do this Whole30 I had to give up my morning green protein smoothie (which was very useful in my pregnancy) and do something with eggs or meat or both in the morning, which I am not used to. I don't really see an issue health or diet-wise with the smoothies, but for the sake of doing this thing all-out....I'm also planning on really lowering carb intake: next to no fruit or starchy veggies. I know this may be controversial with some people, especially because I'm nursing, but I have faith my body will adjust, and I'll add more in if I absolutely have to. Weight loss is a big goal of mine right now, and I will get discouraged if I'm making these changes and not seeing results. I'd like to get into ketosis and burn off this fat before I have to bare skin in spring/summer. It's crunch time! I'm also adding in yoga (hoping for 3-4x weekly) and will be walking as much as possible outdoors as soon as it warms up. Movement is tough for me right now with the kiddos (I'm a SAHM) and it being SO FREAKING COLD outside. The last time I dragged the girls out for a walk, they were both pretty p.o.'d- it so wasn't worth it. Here we go! Day 1 B (8:30): 2 eggs (I use eggs from my local farm; their hens are pastured when possible/use organic grain) cooked in coconut oil/ghee, with three large crimini mushrooms in there too, plus a side of kim chi and a big mug of ginger/green tea.S (10:30): Soaked raw almonds with two big celery stalks (Plans for lunch are leftover chicken sausage chunks (about 1/2 to 3/4 a large sausage) from last night with a fried egg and guacamole, and dinner will likely be pork sausages in coconut oil with onions/peppers/garlic- but I will update!)
