liz.rockon Posted January 5, 2016 Share Posted January 5, 2016 I have some notes in my Notes app regarding my first Whole30, but as you know, the dang brevity forced by tapping out thoughts on a tiny keyboard leaves something to be desired. That said, I'll post what I had recorded previously, and leave for another time my WHY and some of the questions and concerns that I have about the program. Sunday, 1/3 - Day 1 Today was my first day. I had a few waves of hunger this evening, but my meal times were off today so we'll just see how tomorrow goes. I did well with breakfast and lunch - compliant leftovers I had in my house - but I didn;t eat enough and didn't add enough fat. I went grocery shopping and food prepped for about 3 hours. This week is a bit of an anomaly since my husband is out of town for work. He is happy to eat what I eat but not too serious about 100% compliance for himself. Which is fine. But I assume the cooking time and shopping costs will double, which is scary. Breakfast - 9:30 am Constant Comment Tea Leftover collard greens with onions, sauteed in olive oil with apple cider vinegar Leftover slow cooker pork carnitas Organic egg fried in olive oil Lunch - 4:45 pm Leftover slow cooker carnitas Frozen veggie medley (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots) with salt and pepper Dinner - 7:30 pm 1 1/2 egg muffins (from food prep) Spoonfuls of ground beef (WellFed recipe) Monday, 1/4 - Day 2 In retrospect it's clear that I should have eaten more yesterday. Tonight when I get home I'm going to take measurements. My starting weight is 177. Breakfast - 6:15 am Tea Three egg muffins A few bites of leftover collard greens Mid-morning - 10:00 am Another tea Carbonated water Lunch - 12:00 pm Spaghetti squash Leftover veggie medley Well Fed ground beef Coconut oil Spaghetti sauce Snack - 3:00 pm Freeze-dried strawberries and pineapple Dinner - 7:30 pm Coho salmon, cooked in clarified butter Half a sweet potato with some clarified butter Broccoli, with a little more clarified butter Glass of sparkling water with a splash of 100% orange juice (was realllly missing wine and/or cocktail) Tuesday, 1/5 - Day 3 I'm feeling really satisfied food-wise. Missing wine at night, and missing cigarettes (I quit smoking on 1/3 too). Woke up with a headache today. I was tired and just did not want to get out of bed! I've been drinking water and being gentle with myself. Breakfast - 7:00 am Tea Three egg muffins Mid-morning - 9:00 am Another tea Lunch - 12:00 pm Leftover salmon cooked in clarified butter Steamed broccoli Half sweet potato I have a container of olives here I can eat as a snack if I want. For dinner tonight I will have ground beef, cabbage, carrots, and a sauce that I've been excited to make. I also made a list of dinner options for the rest of the week.
