Whole60 Started 7/14 Log


Recommended Posts

Ok, I"m starting my log of my Whole60 -- I already completed a Whole30 which ended in early June 2014.  Then I went on vacation.  Overall, I did feel better following the Whole30 guidelines.  I did not get the body results I was looking for.  I read all of these success stories about people losing significant amounts of weight and size in 30 days.  That is what I wanted for myself too.  


After a lot of reflection -- I went on a 10 day, 3760 mile motorcycle trip for vacation which gave me a lot of time to think -- I realized that I didn't get the results I wanted for a few reasons.


1.  I was unrealistic with my end goal.

2.  30 days was not enough time to undo 43 years of bad eating habits including about 15 years of moderate to heavy drinking (which I did stop about 6 years ago).

3.  I did not cheat last time, but I also was not THAT attentive to making sure I had a good balance of the right foods in my diet.  I know fat is not the enemy, but still, I may have overdone it.  Love love love the paleo mayo....  :-)

4.  I did not exercise regularly.

5.  I did not drink enough water and drank too much coffee.

6.  I only weighed myself but I did not measure myself at the start of the last one.


So, my plan is simple for this whole60....


1.  Log my food this time -- for the ONLY purpose of making sure I am getting enough veggies, not too much starch and making sure the sugar dragon is not catered to.

2.  Exercise.

3.  Weigh AND measure myself today and then after 60 days.

4.  Focus on how I feel, do what I need to do to feel GREAT!.


My food log for the day will come tonight.

It takes a lot to be honest with yourself and see what you could improve on! Good job! I think I"ll do this for myself too! I did a Whole 30 in March with moderate results. Much like you, my results weren't stellar but I could have done things better. I've been exercising more already and am going to continue (what I didn't do my first W30) and definitely watching my fruit, nut, Larabar and coffee intake, eek. Good luck to you!
