Healthy(ish)Linz Posted October 21, 2014 Share Posted October 21, 2014 Today is Day 2 of my first Whole30. Although I am very excited to start this journey, I felt a little overwhelmed with the planning and preparing aspect. The thoughts that ran through my head: "Am I buying too much food? Not enough?" "Am I going to be able to do this?" "Can I really go 30 days without alcohol?!" I feel anxious, which is normal for me when it comes to a change in routine. I am keeping a very open mind while making an effort to turn these apprehensive feelings into feelings of enthusiasm as I look forward to the positive changes to come. Right now I am feeling a little bloated, lightheaded, and I have a headache. I almost feel a little delirious as well. The silver lining is that I don't have a bad stomach ache! (I struggle with stomach issues on a regular basis.) This is what I have eaten so far today (it is about 3pm my time). It is hard for me to eat a lot at once as I typically graze throughout the day. As I want to eventually work towards eating 3 square meals a day, as the Whole30 program suggests, right now I am spreading out my meals a bit. I'm eating the amount of food suggested, just not all at one sitting. Water, Black Coffee Pre-made "Egg Muffin" made with egg, onion, bell pepper, turkey bacon, salt, pepper (about the size of 2 regular-sized muffins 1 banana 1 handful carrots Boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 1.5), bell peppers, onions (cooked with olive oil, salt, and pepper) Please let me know if you have any tips, helpful hints, or suggestions!
