mMm Posted January 2, 2015 Share Posted January 2, 2015 Hello! Day one I started with a lot of optimism but not a lot of preparedness. I'd just gotten back into town and hadn't shopped with the necessary intention for the whole 30, despite my intention to begin the whole30 today. I've made it through today with what's been in my fridge, and i'll plan to pick up some more tomorrow. I've got a long way to go with this whole 30-- I'm in the habit of skipping breakfast, drinking coffee with creamer all morning, a big lunch, snacking through til 10pm, and often skipping dinner. Unfortunately, that's left me eating a lot of carbohydrates and fat, little protein, more coffee and wine than water, and in a state of skinny-fat-- I'm hoping to re-set my system and relish in vegetables and meats and fish, and avoid chocolates and wine. Today, I wasnt hungry at breakfast, but poached an egg anyway, and from about 8:30-10:30, sipped a big cup of coffee with a dash of compliant coconut milk (the canned light kind, from trader joe's), and snacked on three clementines. At lunch, I had a curried chicken thigh and another clementine. All afternoon, I've been vaguely hungry, and I got REALLY hungry about 5pm. I know this is due to a serious lack of calories in my day, even after eating 10 or so almonds at about 3. I sauteed red onion and brussels sprouts in clarified butter and balsalmic vinegar, and ate that with one trader joe's spicy italian chicken sausage. I've been sipping water and sparkling water all evening. I've made chai tea with a little clarified butter in it (I'm out of coconut milk and oil, and will have to grab both tomorrow), and considering sauteeing up some mushrooms this evening. I've also got chicken thighs in the crockpot, and will put in chicken breasts when those have finished, so I'm more prepared for tomorrow. More than anything, I'm disappointed in myself for starting this journey with only one bag of brussels sprouts and two red onions for vegetables in my fridge-- but I'm proud of myself for sticking with it and getting started, instead of procrastinating any further. I think the key, here, is going to be getting enough calories and hydratiion to ward off the 4pm and 9pm snack cravings. Cheers, to a day 2 with more vegetables!
