meeveebee Posted July 21, 2014 Share Posted July 21, 2014 So here I go. I seem to be continually trying new 'diets' and fads. I announced to my boyfriend that I was trying the Whole30 and I just got an eye roll. That has made me even more determined to stick this through and show him what I can achieve. I have struggled with my weight for years. Lots of yo-yo dieting I started Crossfit about 18 months ago. It has been wonderful for my fitness but unfortunately I started rewarding myself with food after a workout. As I sit here I am about 5kg heavier than when I started 18months ago. In that time I have also been diagnosed with Graves Disease (a thyroid condition). Over the weekend I did a massive pantry and fridge throw out and replaced all my highly processed sugary foods with fresh fruit, veggies and lots of lovely meat & seafood. I also sat and wrote down my goals, did some measurements and took a before picture. I think I am ready! Day 1 Today, of all days, I have woken up with the flu! Not to worry I can do this! I got up early and cooked myself breakfast.Then I get to work feeling awful and my co-worker has brought me in my favourite chocolates to thank me for last week. I smiled opened them and left them in the staff tea-room (which I didn't enter again!). Yay! First hurdle jumped successfully. Lunch went without a hitch. Dinner I made from scratch (this is unheard of for me - I never cook!) and it was delicious! Part of my goals I wrote down yesterday was removing social media from my phone. I feel like I have so much time up my sleeve however now I can't use it as a distraction from wanting icecream for dessert. I feel desserts are going to be the hardest habit to break. I have planned for this and bought myself 2 new books, a new cross stitch project and a set of Nano Blocks to occupy myself until the desire passes. So so far, so good! Meals B - 2 boiled eggs & a banana L- Tuna and steamed vegetables D - Chilli Con Carne with Cauliflower rice & vegatables. No snacks - woohoo!
