bisfeldmann Posted November 4, 2014 Share Posted November 4, 2014 I did it! I made it through Day 1!!! I will list my meals below, but am hoping first and foremost to find some buddies for support and encouragement. I'm doing this by myself, so I'll take all I can get! My reasons for doing the Whole30 are many, but here are a few: 1) the past 15 months have been very emotionally taxing. I thought I was coping with several losses, only to realize one day that I had lost myself. I had entered a dark spiral of drinking WAY too much on a daily basis, not sleeping, making unhealthy food choices, letting my exercise lag...you get the idea. I'm doing this to reset myself physically, and as a result emotionally. I could go on about this point forever... 2) I have always have an unhealthy relationship with food. My mother is extremely unhealthy, and from a young age unintentionally taught me that one can never be too skinny. I have two young girls, and I realized they now hear me self-hate. It's my job to teach them how to be healthy, see exercise as fun, see food as fuel and love the,selves! This journey is as much for them as it is for me! 3) I have had severe urticaria since the birth of my first daughter, and the only cause seems to be hormonal shifts. Two allergists, a dermatologist and multiple doctors have thrown up their hands at trying to figure out what I'm "allergic" to. I've done food elimination before, but the only conclusion was "just take Benadryl." Yeah....no thanks. 4) A big part of me wants to prove I can do this! I LOVE you cooking, and outside of the past few months I typically am pretty healthy. I want to feel proud of myself, I want to feel comfortable in my own skin again, and I want to feel happy when I look in he mirror. So, that's it in a nutshell! I look forward to the support system! Day 1: Bfast: egg frittata with onion and spinach (sautéed in coconut oil), diced chicken, smoked paprika, salt and pepper; topped with avocado. 2 cups black coffee. Lunch: Green Goddess salad, no cheese, no dressing, add carrots. Olive oil and red wine vinegar for dressing. Dinner: roasted a whole chicken with carrots, celery and onions; spaghetti squash roasted hen sautéed with coconut oil, cumin, cinnamon and salt (it was kind of gross, but I was in a hurry because the girls were "starving"), mocktail (lacroix with lemons and limes) Also: lots of water; 30 min Physique 57 workout Overall felt pretty good! Was a little hungry at bedtime and had a headache off and on, but was proud of myself! Didn't sleep great-kept waking no up really sweaty???? But, onto day 2!!!
