Sweet Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 DAY 1 Starting my Whole30 today and will keep a log for the duration in an effort to keep myself accountable. I have had a few false starts but I am choosing to focus on the positive outcome from my initial efforts. For example, I am now able to enjoy black coffee after years of using gallons of cream. I gave up alcohol in 2006. It made a huge difference and helped me through a difficult time and I haven't looked back since. If I can give up alcohol, I can do anything so here I am looking to slay the dragons that stole my health. Current problems: -gained 20 pounds in past 10 months -depression -chronic insomnia -acne -severe neck pain -sugar cravings -pain in right foot -pain in left hand - thumb joint -sore spot on my scalp that keeps reoccuring and won't go away -stress -lethargy That list makes me sound like a mess! OH MY!! I studied nutrition at university, however this was when the government was flogging us with the healthy Food Pyramid which promised us that the road to good health was paved with healthy grains and low fat living. Ha!! I purchased "It Starts With Food" some six weeks ago, and am astounded at how much sense it makes and am ready to commit 30 days of my life to a quest for better health. I am having a tough time at work with a horrid co-worker, I'm pretty much alone in a new city, and I need a positive focus - so here I go! Day 1 - Saturday September 15 - Weight 170 (yikes...) Plan: Plan meals, go shopping, be prepared for taking lunches to work. Breakfast: black coffee 2 eggs (from happy chickens of course) scrambled with broccoli and a bit of coconut oil Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
