TriGirlD Posted October 25, 2015 Share Posted October 25, 2015 Would love anyone's advice. I had a really easy first 2 weeks on this program. I didn't really get the headaches that the timeline mentioned, I felt satiated, and my sugar dragon was dead. I've had a few days with super high energy. However, that all kind of changed on Day 15, when I started feeling a really terrible headache and tired eyes. I still don't feel tired - I tried to nap and couldn't. I just feel this pressure in my head, like a hangover. Also, my digestion hasn't completely regulated out yet, but I'm giving it a little more time before I start taking further steps (probiotics or cutting out FODMAPS). I thought my headache yesterday had to do with not sleeping well the night before, followed by too much coffee. But when it continued today, now I'm not sure. I'm wondering if it's from not enough water in the morning, or something I'm eating, or my sleep. I'm posting the past few days meals in case you can help see if this is diet related. Day 13 - A small slump - slightly tired and hungry in the afternoon Pre-Wo: 2 slices deli meat, 1 baby potato (I now know I shouldn't have a carb in this meal) super tough 60 min workout B: Leftover Chicken Cashew Cabbage Slaw and a banana, plus a small coffee with coconut milk Lunch: leftover zucchini noodles and roasted yellow squash with "sloppy joe" meat and green olives Dinner: big piece of cod with avocado lime mayo, red peppers, and sweet potato. *I think this fish was too big - I felt very full, crampy, and bloated after. Water - 80 oz Day 14 - Felt good! Lots of energy again. Except had a really scary poop this morning. No workout today. B: 2 fried eggs, 2 slices bacon, baby potatoes, half banana L: leftover cod with pico de gallo, 1/2 cup roasted butternut squash, 2 pickle spears, 7 olives, cup of grapes D: leftover chicken cashew cabbage slaw before an event. 4 hours later, still working and hungry - ate larabar 60 oz water - lost track at event. Didn't get to sleep until 11:30pm and had a terrible night sleep Day 15 - skipped workout today. Felt pressure and pain in my head about 1pm on. Maybe dehydrated? 7:30 B: Last of the chili meat with an egg cracked on top, potatoes Big coffee with coconut milk. Didn't start drinking water until noon. 12:30 L: romaine lettuce topped with bacon, tomato, and egg salad (2 eggs) in compliant mayo, plus a side of butternut squash Mini Meal @5: coconut flakes and raisins 8pm - shredded chicken with Franks hot sauce, olives, broccoli Water - 70 to 80 oz Day 16 - got full night sleep last night, but could have slept for hours more. Had to get up. PreWorkout - 1 hardboiled egg, 2 bacon slices Tough Workout - 32 oz of water M1 - Egg Salad (eggs with mayo), sweet potato, almond butter (I was out of veggies) no water until lunch M2 - Greek Salad with Roasted Turkey (at restaurant) - lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, avocado, turkey, balsamic vinegar, oil *Headache started after lunch M3 - Burger patty with olive tapenade, a quick salad of avocado/onions/tomatoes/lime juice, pickles, and a few spoonfuls of applesauce Ending with 70 oz of water As I'm writing this, I'm wondering if there's something wrong with the latest batch of mayo I made recently. Every time I had it, I felt sick later. It was also part of the Avocado Lime Sauce on my cod a few nights ago. FYI - Yes, my bacon and deli meat are compliant. I'm religious about checking ingredients. Thank you in advance!!! Danielle - a cranky whole30er Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
