kea126 Posted May 9, 2014 Share Posted May 9, 2014 I was on day 21 of my Whole30 Challenge and had to travel for a week. I prepped as much as I could and even took food with me, but ended up breaking my Whole30 with wine and again a couple days later with mexican food. I could definitely tell I wasn't eating right. I was extremely fatigued and irritable. I even told a family member that I couldn't wait to get home and eat compliant foods again. When I returned home, I spend an afternoon prepping for the week. It has been a week since I have been back on track and I don't feel the effects I felt for my first 21 days. With my first 21 days I was happier, had more energy and felt leaner-especially in my stomach, which is my major trouble area. Now after being back on track I still feel tired and moody and on top of that I am more flabby in my abdominal region. I am trying to figure out an explaination to all of this. I am getting frustrated and wondering if all this effort is worth it. Could this be my portions? (eventhough I am eating the same portions I was eating the first go around.) Am I using too much oil to cook in? (1-2 tablespoons coconut or olive oil). I work 12 hours a day and don't have time to workout, but figured eating compliant would be better than nothing at all. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
