My Whole 100 journey starts tomorrow 4/11/2015. 

 

I am currently in an accelerated BSN program and my program will be over at the end of July, so my Whole 100 will give me some much needed eating structure during the final lap of nursing school. I haven't put on any nursing school weight, but I've definitely become more of an emotional eater (chocolate covered almond and diet pepsi always put me in a better mood!) and I feel just exhausted and burnt out. I rely on caffeine to get through the day. 

I love cooking and crossfit so this should be a lot of fun. I'm subscribing to a CSA this summer so I should be trying lots of new vegetables. I took my before pictures and I'm excited for this journey and change. 

 

I will be going to Haiti in the middle of May and I'm honestly not sure what kind of food I'll have access to while I am there. So I am going to do 100 days total and not count my trip as part of it. Is that ok? I'll try to eat as compliant as I can while I'm there, but there are no guarantees! I want to do 100 days of total compliance because I'm a go big or go home kind of person. I've done a Whole30 before and I feel like that is too short a time for me. I have some long standing GI issues that I'd really like to get to the bottom of. I want to try as best I can to do a nut-free whole100 (I definitely won't be having any jars of almond/cashew butter at my house, but the individual packets are great for emergencies/hangry-ness at the hospital).

 

Goals for this journey

1. Lean out

2. Deal with emotional eating/foods without breaks issues

3. Deal with GI issues

4. Continue on the PR train at Crossfit

5. Have more energy/sleep better/feel less burnt out

6. Develop clear skin (acne and heat rashes)

7. BE SELF-CONFIDENT

You should not plan on doing a Whole30 while traveling or spending time in a foreign country. You should devote your attention to other matters when away from home. 

 

If you eat anything off plan regardless of the reason, the counter on your streak of Whole30 days starts over again. This isn't me being mean. It is just the way your body works.

then how about I call what I'm doing a whole 40, followed by a whole 60 with ten day break in between.

Day 1 - 4/11/15

 

Breakfast: 3 eggs fried in coconut oil, blueberries, plantains, coconut la croix water

Lunch: stuffed pepper, blackberries, plantains

Dinner: stuffed pepper x2, roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli 

 

When I woke up this morning, all I wanted was chocolate and diet pepsi! Help! I'm also feeling really depressed. I went through a really bad breakup a while ago and I haven't felt like myself ever since. I feel like I need a man and to be in a relationship to be happy. I know that isn't right. I want that to change. 

 

Sweet potatoes and la croix water are my saving graces!

Day 2 - 4/12/15

 

Went to bed really early last night because I was feeling absolutely exhausted. I have been having trouble sleeping through the night as of recent. Anyway, I got a good night sleep and am in a much better mood. I'm really craving some chocolate though. Staying strong! How long until those cravings get any better though?

 

M1: 3 eggs fried in coconut oil, sweet potato roasted in olive oil

M2: stuffed pepper (stuffed with ground beef, onion, cauliflower), sweet potato roasted in olive oil

M3: stuffed pepper (stuffed with ground beef, onion, cauliflower), broccoli with old bay, banana

 

some parts of the day are easier than others, but all of this will make me stronger for tomorrow!

Day 3 - 4/13/15

 

Feeling great! Slept great last night and I woke up feeling well rested. I didn't wake up with a chocolate or a diet pepsi craving this morning. I'm trying not to spend money so in some ways this challenge is helping with that because I can't just pop down to the Walgreens or cafeteria. I've had some long term GI issues...maybe it's the placebo effect but those are also starting to feel better. 

 

I have class this morning, an exam this afternoon, and then I'm going to go to the gym and come back and study for my exam on Wednesday. Nothing too too exciting going on in my life, but this hard hard semester is ending this week and my next one should be breezy in comparison. I'm hoping that will allow for some balance in my life because there has not been too much. Most of my days look like class or clinical, gym, study, sleep, repeat.

 

M1: 3 eggs fried in coconut oil, sweet potato roasted in olive oil

M2: stuffed pepper (stuffed with ground beef, onion, cauliflower), broccoli with old bay, banana

Post WO: banana and apple (fruit I know...all I had)

M3: Salmon panseared in coconut oil, spinach, broccoli

 

Feeling great!

By "lean out" do you mean lose weight?

yes and no. I'd like to loose some of the belly bloat I have and look leaner and more muscle-y overall. If that happens with weight loss, great. If it happens with muscle gain, great. I'm not tied to a number.

Day 4 - 4/14/15

 

Up and at it early for a long day at the hospital. I slept insanely well last night. I feel pretty good, but I'm kind of gassy. I guess that's just my gut bacteria adjusting. Or many it's the peppers? Not sure. Any suggestions? Hopefully that will improve.

 

M1: 2 eggs fried in coconut oil. sweet potato roasted in olive oil, apple slices

M2: grilled salmon, spinach, almonds

Post workout: zoodle and ground turkey, salmon samples at whole foods (not sure if they were 100% compliant)

M3: grilled salmon, broccoli, almonds

You only ever fail completely by giving up. You learned something new about your body so you can now go ahead with extra determination!  Good luck with your restart.
