Guest Posted October 7, 2014 Share Posted October 7, 2014 Day 3 Technically I started my Whole 30 a few days ago. Technically I started a different elimination diet two weeks ago...but let's start this log so I can keep track of my food/mood/symptoms! Since I've started eliminating food (soy, peanuts, dairy, gluten, eggs, and corn) two week ago, I'm kinda less than excited to eliminate more food (all grains and legumes) from my diet for 30 more days. I've been slacking. My meals aren't well-rounded nor do they come three times a day. I've been under a lot of stress because I have a big decision to make at work and nothing sounds good except hot dogs, chips, and chocolate. And hot dogs it was for breakfast today. Nothing else sounded remotely appetizing. Breakfast: 2 Applegate turkey hot dogs Coffee with coconut milk (full fat canned) Some sort of lemony/fruit bar with chia and pumpkin seeds (ate half). Wanted an avocado and had two BIG ones on the counter...but they were both gross inside once I cut into them. I hate when that happens! They're not cheap! Lunch: Chicken salad (shredded chicken from whole chicken cooked Saturday, celery, almonds, grapes from my garden, water chestnuts, cabbage, mustard, and seasonings) Potato chips cooked in olive oil (I know, not really Whole30, but I eat these in moderation and to get a dose of health fat. I have a new-found brake mechanism when eating chips.) A fruit/veggie squeeze pouch. Dinner: Used up the rest of the chicken by making my own BBQ sauce (just winged it with some tomato paste, ACV, date paste, liquid smoke, and other stuff) Half a bunch of asparagus with ghee Post-Workout: One banana with almond butter and unsweetened coconut Guilty binge on some plantain chips before bed (W30 compliant, but a bad idea. Don't buy any sort of "chips" on the W30) Symptoms: Tummy troubles in the morning shortly after waking up Feeling hungry by 10 AM (lack of a proper breakfast will do that!) Depressed and blah feeling. The stress is just making me want junk food and not give a damn about whether or not my food is compliant or not. Maybe reading ISWF again will give me a second wind. I'm ovulating and have a lot of pain in the abdomen today! I always ovulate at work! I'm so glad that I've been using the Fertility Awareness Method for about 4 years and don't have to worry about artificial hormones affecting me during this Whole30 or ever. Looking back, I had a high basal body temp today unrelated to ovulation--turns out it was a fever because whatever I'm fighting off, my boyfriend has caught! Had a good workout at the gym. I haven't been in a few weeks and thankfully didn't feel like I lost too much strength and I felt more flexible! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
