Runninglawyer's Post Whole 30 Log

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I've decided to keep a post whole 30 log because I'd still like accountability. I plan to eat whole 30 + dairy and sugar. All grains make me feel like rubbish and I'm allergic to most of them but I really like dairy and want to have it in my life. So, that's a concession ill make and I also won't scour the shelves for food with no added sugar--in meats mostly. No soy, grains, corn, or legumes for me.

Okay, so today's plan is as follows:

Pre-workout: protein bar (whey protein isolate, nuts, and sweetener) and a hard boiled egg

M1/post-workout: frittata and grape tomatoes w/ chai tea (made with almond milk--carageenan and sweetener free)

M2: greek salad with feta, kalamata olives, iceberg lettuce, olive oil and balsamic; zoodles with turkey marinara

Snack: trail mix of dried fruit and cashews (while out), ice Cream

M3: chicken tikka masala on cauliflower rice, grapefruit, strawberries, ice cream bar (oopsy on this, a bit excessive admittedly)

And anyone who was following my whole 30 knows I was concerned about overeating and gaining too much weight ....I gained less than 2 pounds in 4 weeks which is fabulous. I am thinking that because my results were so spectacular I might do another whole 30 after my next appointment.

Okay so...this isn't working. I'm not eating in a way that makes me feel good. Quite the opposite actually. I just bought organic yogurt so I'm going to incorporate all whole 30 rules except no dairy or added sugar (my sausage has some but I'm not doing treats or anything). Today is day 1.

Today's Deets: 


Snacky this morning--didn't sleep well at all. No excuse for the poor eating I admit. It could have been worse though and since I had "treats" during the first part of my day I'm not having any in the evening. 


Snacks (2am when I couldn't sleep): tiny bowl of cereal (maybe ~1/3 cup with a dash of milk since it's off limits), 1/2 of an ice cream sandwich, 2 miniature chick o stick candies, 1/2 of a trail mix granola bar --not HORRIBLE by any stretch but I could've chosen actual food. 


AM Workout (9:15am): Quick arm circuit (12 minutes weights) 


M1 (9:30am): 2 eggs, 4 sausage links, and spinach. 1/2 small sweet potato. 4-5 strawberries. 


Pre-Workout (11:15am): 2 rice cakes with small amount of peanut butter

*(I can't have rice or pb so I threw away the rice cakes after this)*

*(I also do better when I have carbs before cardio instead of protein)*


M2 (3:15pm): LARGE chicken salad


M3 (7pm): chicken breast sautéed with spaghetti squash and cherry tomatoes. sprinkled with nutritional yeast 


Snacks (totally unnecessary):   greek yogurt w/ strawberries, grapefruit, string cheese, and small amount of ice cream (maybe 1/4 cup)

Yesterday's eats: 


M1: small bowl of cereal, protein bar, and 1 reese's pb cup  (yeah, not a shining moment for me) 


M2: 2 eggs, 3 sausage, 1 string cheese 


Workout: stairs and elliptical


post-workout: 2 hot dogs, and 2-3 raw carrots 


M3: chicken soup (homemade) --> essentially fat free aside from the fat in chicken breast. bad move. 


M4: fish with zucchini, roasted veggies (cauliflower and carrots), greek yogurt, grapefruit, small bowl of ice cream 


**I'm thinking the snacking/eating crap food (although it's not excessive in quantity and that's worth something) might be due to my fat intake decreasing and overall satiety being lesser than when I was doing a whole 30**


**I try to keep crummy food out of my diet during the day time because I'll just eat them to excess if I have them at any time aside from early morning or at night**

Well, tomorrow is the day I told myself I'd do another whole 30 but I don't think I will. I think what I'll do instead is have bright lines that I won't cross. No grains, soy, legumes, or corn. I will have dairy and sugar. Those are things that I tolerate well, I'm not allergic to, and I enjoy. 


I've been eating fairly well all things considered but it FEELS like I've been overeating--I'm starting to think it's my growing belly and not a true reflection of what I eat. I do notice that when I eat crummy food I feel crummy and I don't like that very much. No more small bowls of my husband's cereal, candy that's not SPECIAL, or crap food just because it's there. NO MORE! Today is starting off quite well...


Day 1 of RMOB (Riding My Own Bike w/Rules) 


Pre-Workout: Protein Bar


Workout: nice long cardio session


M1/post workout: piece of fritatta (2.5 eggs, 1/2 cup spinach, 1/2 cup peppers, 1/2 chicken sausage), 4 turkey sausage, 1 cup cherry tomatoes with balsamic glaze


M2: chicken burger, carrot puree, and spinach w/ nutritional yeast 


M3: baked chicken and roasted brussel sprouts

  • 2 weeks later...

I'm still alive. I had a monstrous paper to write so I spent a week doing that. Then last week I had to study for a test that I had this past Saturday. My eating has been rather poor--not disastrous but definitely not great. I've had pizza on 2 occasions, bread that same week, and just not good stuff (candy here and there, cereal every once in a while and not nearly enough healthy fats). I've been doing better since Thursday or so and I think I'm good now. I have an appt on Friday and expect to have gained more weight than I should have. I guess time will tell. I do know that when I did my whole 30 my weight gain was on track (or perhaps slightly less than expected) so if necessary then I'll go back to that. I don't want to exceed the weight guidelines during pregnancy because it's not good for me or the baby so come Friday if I've gained more than 4 pounds then I'll definitely be doing another whole 30, no getting around it. 


Today's deets:


Pre workout: protein bar 


Workout (6am): 45 minutes stairs, arm circuit (chest press, lat pull down, seated row, overhead press, bicep curls, and overhead tricep extensions), elliptical


M1 (9:30am): small piece of frittata (1.25 eggs, 1/3 chicken sausage, 1 cup veg) and 2 turkey sausage links 


M2 (1:30pm): chicken crab vegetable curry (coconut milk, chicken breast, crab, and vegetables) 


M3 (6pm): chicken teriyaki with quinoa, fresh mango
