LauraJS Posted March 8, 2014 Share Posted March 8, 2014 Dates 28th January - 28th February I first began the whole 30 after hearing about it from an online friend of mine who changed her life by doing the program. I straight away jumped online and purchased 'It starts with food' and as soon as I began reading I knew this was going to be the start of something great! After reading the first few sections I decided that now was a better time than ever and I told my parents (who I currently live with) what I was going to do and why and to ask for their full support! They were understanding and supported me 100% the entire time. Although I cook alot, my mum came up with some amazing whole30 compliant meals for me and I couldn't have been more grateful! What went well! - I stuck to the plan 100% - I didn't take my bad moods out on anyone else - I went from compliant snacking at the start of the program to just 3 meals a day (or some days with pre/post workout meals) - I now do not touch any pre-trainers or protein powders (I used to rely on these a lot for gym) - I lost 2.4kgs - I started to notice my abs showing - My skin is glowing and I cant remember when I last had a breakout - My hair and nails are long and strong - My relationship with food is changing for the better - I successfully ate out at restaurants while staying compliant - I became more confident within myself because my body was feeling so great What could have been done better - More variety in my meals - I could have tried more new recipes - Less fruit (although I always had my fruit during the day, never at night) - I didn't do the re-introduction schedule which is something I am now working toward What now? After an indulgent weekend post whole30 (bit too much booze and sugar while out partying) I am now back onto eating paleo foods and started a new log "my post whole 30 log". I am figuring out what I do want to try eating again and when I want to allow myself to 'stray' when it comes to big celebrations (i.e. bdays/weddings etc) - I am going to re-read ISWF and I think I will definitely do another whole 30 soon! - I am going to try to change up my gym routine a bit more to get some more results and next week I am starting some hot stretch classes to improve my flexibility. I am also going to try out stand up paddle boarding and make a conscious effort to do more active/healthy activities on weekends rather than partying at night with alcohol. I want to be the best version of myself and the whole30 is surely helping me achieve that every day Read my post whole 30 log here: http://forum.whole9l...t-whole-30-log/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
