Serik Posted January 12, 2016 Share Posted January 12, 2016 Day 1 Okay, I've done this before a few times. I know what I have to do. I know how it makes me feel. How it improves my "numbers". I think I know what I need to do better this time to reap even more benefits. So what do I plan to do differently this time? #1 Focus on getting more veggies at each meal.... I think I've tended to go a bit overboard on the meat just because "it's allowed" and "I don't have to count/track anything." #2 Be more mindful of what my body is telling me and keep track of it here. #3 Break the snack habit. In the past I would decide that a snack of nuts was okay because "at least it's better than half a carton of ice cream." If I'm truly hungry, I'll make a mini meal. #4 And, probably most importantly, I'm going to follow the reintroduction schedule from the Whole30 book to the letter (with the possibility of adding a few extra clean eating days in between trials if I feel myself sliding.) I've done this before and fallen off hard at the end. I'm at my highest weight in years and both my blood pressure and cholesterol were up at my physical last year and I'm sure they have probably gotten worse. That's why I think the reintroduction is going to be the most importent part. I have seen some lasting, positive, effects of having done Whole30 and I think having a clearer idea of how some of these off plan foods really make me feel will help me adopt a more healthy lifestyle in the end. I weighed myself this morning 277 lbs. (ugh!) The scale will sit unused for the next 30 days, I'm sure I'll be a bit happier with the number then. But more importantly I'll be much happier with my energy levels. I'll be playing with my kids more, keeping up with my work better, and just generally be a more pleasant person to be around!
