Post USA holiday - getting back on track


Recommended Posts

I have just returned back from a month over in the states.  During the 4 weeks I was gone, I indulged way too much.  I ate what I wanted and drank what I wanted.  It was an amazing holiday, I had a ball!  But now I'm home and back to work and I'm the heaviest I've ever been.


I did the whole 30 back In February and at the end of that I was 47.4kgs  I would love to get myself back to 48kgs.


I currently weigh 51kgs


Im 158cm tall, female 27 years old.


I have so many sugar cravings and my hunger is through the roof now that I am back so now my challenge is to get back to strict paleo eating.


I know its going to be a struggle getting my diet back to scratch and back to the gym 5 days a week but I know I can do it and need to do it to feel better about myself.  


So I'm starting this new blog to write down everything that I consume starting tomorrow morning and hope it will help me get myself back on track.  And possibly later this year I hope to do another whole30 challenge.

So I did the worst thing and decided to just finish all the chocolate in the fridge and start fresh tomorrow.  


Thats clearly the worst idea ever coz now im in a worse off spot than before.  but there is now nothing unhealthy here for me to eat. 


I need to really focus.  Being in USA for a month has really screwed with my eating and cravings.


I'm hoping it will get easier from here....  least I'm using the forum how I planned and keeping myself accountable and admitting my terrible cravings and crappy will power :(


Tomorrow is a new day....new start,  and a big gym sesh ahead!!

Welcome back. I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday. I would like to challenge you to eat much more this time around. Having followed you for a while I don't feel this has really clicked as a lifestyle for you yet and I believe it is because you are not feeding yourself enough. I could be totally off track but I'm saying it out of concern and wanting the best for you. I'm guessing that with your activity level 2 eggs really isn't enough protein in the morning for you. And a zucchini slice is not a meal. It's not even a mini meal. No wonder you came home and ate chocolate. 


For clarification, are you trying to do another Whole30 or just stay close to Whole30?

Thanks for your advice.  You were probably very right with me not eating enough back then!!  I am starting fresh today but not on a whole30 as such. just trying to find a balance...  I want to get healthy but still want to enjoy a drink with friends from time to time etc...  


I am moving house this week and have started a new forum as I want an entire fresh start....feel free to leave any advice on there :)
