April 7 continued...

 

M2 - Salad (romaine lettuce, cabbage, carrots, celery, one avocado, beets, turkey (2 slices), cashews, oil and lemon for dressing). 1 enzyme

 

M3 - Two turkey franks, swiss chard, asparagus, carrots, 10-15 almonds.  Ghee on chard, asparagus and carrots.  1 enzyme

 

Felt OK today.  Wasn't hungry in between meals.  Think I'm getting that dialed in.  Headache and some nausea.  Low energy.  Sounds like that is par for the course.  This is my first official day on W30 but I've been eating this way since last Friday so it's my fourth day on the plan.  I'll try to drink more water tomorrow.  Probably had about 4 glasses of water and 2 cups of tea.  I'm small.  5'3" and 107 pounds.  Not looking to lose any weight.

Day 10 - April 16

 

We really had a setback today.  My oldest dog Annie was vomiting (some blood in it).  So we spent the morning at the vet's visiting with Doc Laura.  Annie is much better today (April 17).  Thank goodness.  She's on antibiotics and antinausea medication and her little brother Charlie doesn't understand why she doesn't want to play with him.  Probably goes without saying that we were all off of our feed yesterday.  I missed breakfast completely.  Started my eating day with M2 at 11:30 or 12:00.  So only two meals yesterday and I really felt it.  Was spacey in the morning and had difficulty making decisions.  When they told me Annie's weight, I thought it was all wrong because I was thinking about Toby (who passed away 3 years ago at the age of 13).  I'll make it a point to get back on track today.  But here's what I did yesterday.

 

M2 (no M1)

2 egg scramble with 3 olives, hamburger, green beans and sweet potato

bowl of swiss chard

ghee and coconut oil

 

M3

chicken thigh

mixed vegies (1 cup)

asparagus (1 cup)

sweet potato (4 slices)

Day 11 - April 17

 

Slept really good last night.  Had food dreams!  Can't remember what now but I remembered this morning.

 

M1

2 eggs scramble with hamburger, green beans, sweet potato and olives (with some of the juice).  You can probably tell this is my favorite breakfast.

swiss chard

ghee and coconut oil

 

M2

My usual salad which I love!

romaine lettuce, cabbage, carrots, celery, beet, 1 egg, chicken breast, cashews, avocado and olive oil and lemon dressing.

5 really sweet strawberries

 

M3

chicken thigh

brussel sprouts (just a few)

vegie mix (carrots, broccoli and cauliflower)

sweet potatoes

cashews 

ghee

 

Felt good today.  Good energy, felt happy.  My dog Annie is much better so that made my day.  She's on a restricted diet of jasmine rice and chicken breast for a few more days.  I felt guilty eating in front of her.

Day 12 - April 18

 

Didn't sleep well last night.  Tossed and turned and couldn't turn my mind off.  So the Whole30 Daily was good for me today - all about meditation and stress relief.

 

M1

2 egg scramble with hamburger, sweet potato, green beans and 4 olives (with olive juice) cooked in coconut oil.

spinach with ghee

 

M2

Salad (the usual) with cabbage, romaine, carrots, celery, chicken breast, 1 egg, beet, avocado, and cashews on top.  Dressing was olive oil and lemon.

5 strawberries

 

M3

2 turkey franks

cauliflower, carrots, broccoli, brussel sprouts and sweet potato

almonds

ghee on vegies

 

Took a nap in the afternoon today.  Not as much energy today.  Seems to come and go.  But all-in-all, felt good.

Day 13 - April 19

 

M1

My usual breakfast scramble (2 eggs, hamburger, green beans, sweet potato and olives (4) and some olive juice)

1 cup of spinach with ghee

coconut oil for scramble

2 enzymes

 

M2

Salad with cabbage, romaine, carrots, celery, beet, 1 egg, 1 avocado, cashews and some sunflower seeds with olive oil and lemon dressing.

1 chicken thigh

5 strawberries

2 enzymes

 

M3

1 chicken thigh

about 1 cup of mixed vegies - cauliflower, broccoli and carrots with almonds and ghee

I have GERD and LPR.  One of the things I've noticed is that my usual sore throat has gone away.  It was gradual.  It went away after about a week or so on the diet.  That's a very good thing and I'm hoping it is because of the diet change.  I'm drinking more water too.  About 6 glasses a day (5'3" and 107 pounds or so).  I'm going to start cutting off the water around 6:00 p.m. so I can sleep through the night without potty breaks.  My hands are usually dry and cracked and they look and feel better too.  All that good fat I'm thinking.  I'm not hungry in between meals but I don't feel stuffed after eating either so think I'm getting the amount of food dialed in.  I really like eating this way.  It's nice to eat a meal and I don't think about it again until it's time to eat - usually about 4 hours later.  Breakfast is my favorite meal.  I know it's boring to have the same thing every day but I really enjoy it.  I guess I'll branch out and try something new when I get tired of it, but so far, I'm liking it.  I love my salad at lunch too.  My lightest meal is probably dinner but that's good because with GERD you don't want a big meal in the evening.  So things are going well.  I don't always note it, but I always have 2 enzymes with every meal.  I started with 1 enzyme per meal but upped it to 2 after the first few days.  I think it's made a difference - in a good way.  Enzymes are the only thing I'm taking now.

Been tracking my water.  I have a hard time remembering to drink water throughout the day.  Keeping track works for me.  So far, I've had 7 glasses of water and 1 cup of herb tea.  Trying not to have any water after 6:00 p.m.

 

Felt good today.  Didn't need a nap.  Good energy.  A nice Easter Sunday.
