kelthevet Posted November 15, 2014 Share Posted November 15, 2014 I finished my first Whole30 5 days ago on 11/11/2014. I feel so much better compared to when I started. See the bottom of this post for links to my W30 log and success story. The main difference is in my energy levels. Prior to Whole30, I was taking up to 2 hours from waking to being able to get up. Now I get out of bed within 30 minutes of waking and I have started exercising again. I have not started my reintroduction protocol yet, as I am in the midst of moving house. Once I'm settled into my new home in a month, I will look at bringing a few other things into my diet. Until then I will largely follow W30 eating with a few extras. Since finishing, I have tried some goat's cheese in an omelette at a cafe. Within 30 minutes I had to rush to the loo (TMI!). I'm not convinced the cheese was the only noncompliant ingredient and am willing to try it again another time. I've also had a couple of pieces of my homemade coconut and cacao rough that contains a little honey and organic peanut butter, and haven't had any issues with it, and no sign of my sugar dragon appearing - yay! I am tracking my food in a paper journal, but probably won't log everything on here at the moment. What I do want to do for the next 30 days is to focus on my sleep. I will turn all electronics off by 9.30pm at the latest, and lights out by 10- 10.30pm. I have 2 alarms set for the morning, 6am and 6.30am. Eventually I want to be rising at 6am daily and lights out by 10pm as this seems to help me sleep through the night. I also want to increase my exercise - next week I am aiming for 4 CrossFit sessions and a swim. This will not only help me sleep well, but also help me continue my weight loss (12 kg down, about 15kg to go). This is to help keep me accountable!
