fourfooteleven Posted October 17, 2014 Share Posted October 17, 2014 Hi all, I'm a member of my local mountain rescue team and we have a mission on Sunday. I'll be on Day 18 at that point and have been very strict to keeping to Whole30. I've been feeling pretty good but I'm concerned about my energy. During a very easy four mile flat hike on Day 4, I was very light headed just before lunch (two miles in) and still felt so-so on the hike out, even after downing an apple, chicken, veggies and "sunshine sauce". On day 13 (this week), I finally hit up my weekly Boot Camp class and I felt pretty good after. However, I've not been doing my regular regiment of two boot camps a week and running 2-3x a week (3-6 miles a run). I'm also not eating as much as I was during week 1 when I felt I was starving all the time, whereas now I'm back to my usual three square meals a day with some nuts and an apple thrown in on occasion. As for Sunday, these types of outings can be intense and long long loooong days... there's not time to sit down and make a meal... and I don't have time to mail-order food. And I HATE EPIC BARS. Just putting that out there. Suggestions? Concerns? I'll have some time on Saturday possibly to make some food.... But part of me just want to throw in the towel for the day so I don't have to worry about it and load up on my usual KIND bars and Clif gels and glorious glorious burritos of chicken, avocado and veggies and cheese .... But then.... I'll have to start over. Tiffany Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
