Schnauzy Posted June 11, 2015 Share Posted June 11, 2015 Wow..I made it...whole 30 days! Well 42 days if i didn't count the peanut oil cashew accidental slips and stuff.. I am relieved and nervous that it's over. Relieved because I can enjoy going out to eat (FTMP) w/ friends & family. Nervous because now it's the real test. The training wheels are off..total elimination is easier than allowing myself to have a bit of this and that. I started the w30 to get rid of my sugar cravings and this has subsided a good amount. Though, I was craving my mom's homemade bread today called "mantou" in chinese. It will be a challenge going forward but I'm determined to stay on track for good health..!! Anyway, here are my results that i've experienced throughout the program: Non-Scale Victories: - Energy in the morning..not dragging myself out of bed anymore - Eliminated my coffee addiction (I drink it when I feel like it but don't feel dependent on it anymore) - More and consistent energy through the day - Exercising 5 days a week (cardio for 40 minutes) - Reduced my sugar cravings (I still have it but it is reduced!) - Clothes fit better - Skin is clearer (no more visible pimples) and was told it "glows." Scale/Measurement Victories: Weight: -10.6 pounds Arm: -0.5 inches Belly button area: -2 inches Chest: -0.7 inches Thigh: -0.6 inches Calf: 0 Forearm: -0.5 inches I was in total shock when I found out i lost 10.6 lbs!!! May be some water weight..but feels so nice..I measured weird areas like my belly button area cause it was just on the whim..should have measured my waist and hip..ah well! My whole30 log: http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/27026-schnauzy-diary-first-w30-hello/page-3 Day 31 (43) I decided to reintroduce dairy today. I was not very prepared for this reintroduction phase...I had to reread this in the book. For some reason I thought once my w30 was over, i could start eating noncompliant foods again whenever. I am going to have some road bumps during this phase because I'm going to my grandma's birthday dinner on Thursday to a chinese restaurant. It is family style and I'm assuming all dishes will have some noncompliant ingredient like soy..Then, on Saturday I'm going out of town to my brother's graduation so I would be eating out for meal 2 and 3. In between, I plan to be w30 compliant. I will continue with my reintroduction after probably.. Meal 1: whole milk with stumptown cold brew coffee, sweet potato fries, 2 HB eggs Workout: 30 minutes elliptical, 10 minutes treadmill Meal 2: stir fry chicken, asparagus, zucchini, fruits incl. rasberries, grapes, apricot Meal 3: stir fry chicken, cauliflower, cloud ear fungus, slice of cheddar cheese I was experiencing gas in my stomach today in the afternoon..I'm not sure if it's from dairy... Day 32 (44) I was feeling very nauseous last night but it has gone away overnight (phew..). It may or may not have been from the dairy. I'll test out dairy again later. Meal 1: spinach egg smoked salmon scramble, green jasmine tea Workout: 30 minutes elliptical, 10 minutes treadmill Meal 2: shredded potato with ground pork marinara sauce and mushroom, rasberries, grapes, and small nectarine Meal 3: a little of salmon, egg, beef, and a lot of green bean and mushroom, sweet potato water with bits of sweet potato chunks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
