jmed21 Posted July 14, 2014 Share Posted July 14, 2014 I completed my first Whole 30 in March of this year. I lost 11 inches and only 1 lb. How that is possible is beyond me. I felt great, my skin was glowing among a lot of other benefits. But I never really felt that 'ahhah' moment I was waiting for. 30 days was definitely not long enough for years of bad binge eating and unhealthy habits. We had a vacation planned so I didn't do a proper re-intro, promised myself I'd start another W30 once we got back. Well I stopped and started 4 times and never successfully completed another W30. Until now. I NEED to do this for myself and my health. My biggest challange will be sticking to it completely. While I didn't cheat last W30 I know there are things I could do better/differently: Exercise! I've already started doing cardio 4-5 times/week at home that I'll continue and re-joined the gym to do weights measure/weigh the quantity of my protein. I think I was too generous before :/ Less red meat, more fish! Drink more water. Everyday. Not just while I'm at work. Drink less coffee! This is a sore spot for me and something I need to kick to the curb. It's a definite emotional/boredom related thing for me. Focus on why and when I want to eat bad. What triggers these emotions. Focus on taking it day by day and completing at least a full 30 days. I'm not usually one to use forums, support, etc. but I think I really need it this time, hence the long post. I need to be accountable to someone else and say these things out loud. So there you have it. I'll be tracking my meals and how each day goes. I'm a little nervous and scared to start another W30 but need to remember why I am doing this..for ME. Here goes! M1: 3 eggs over a veggie hash (1/4 sweet potato, mushrooms and red bell pepper). Bulletproof coffee M2: Tuna with avocado in lettuce, mixed salad with balsamic, 1/4c grapes 1/4c pineapple M3: Will post tonight/tomorrow Good luck to everyone starting today!
