Rebekah Apotre Posted September 29, 2012 Share Posted September 29, 2012 I didn't join the forum till today so this is my log for Day 1 Day 1- B- Turkey Sausage, Zucchini and Summer Squash, Organic Girl's 5 Happiness Greens Mix, Steamed Green Beans and Water L- same as breakfast D- Roast Chicken, Kale and Tomato Salad, Almond Butter, Apple Sleep- got home around 2am, woke up at 4 and 6 to pee got up for the day at 10am. Feeling a bit gross but chugged some water and took my suppliments with breakfast. Exercise- Ran 2.7 miles/30mins with my "Couch to 5K" program , plus stretching I had been eating Whole 30 approved meals for a few days just to try it out, but still eating cookies, and all sorts of goodies. So my real Day 1 Started yesterday. I know there are a few things that can cause me to slip up: - not eating proper meals so by 3pm the sugar/snack cravings take over and before I know it there is a bag of cookies in my hand, half gone and I wake up from my snack trance and feel like crap. - not drinking enough water- am focusing on this one. Not enjoying having to pee so much. I hope this is just an adjustment period for my body because I cannot stand having to go every 2 to 3 hours and all through the night. - I need to make sleep a priority. I dont' work regular hours a shift can start anywhere from 6am to 4pm, depending and I often work 10 to 12 hour days. I just need to get 8 hours no matter when I go to sleep and I seem to be fine - not preparing several meals ahead of time, or not prepping enough components so I can put a complete meal together on the fly. I can eat the same thing for several meals and still enjoy it, I love left overs. So I need to make bigger batches of everything and portion it out so i can grab and eat. - I love how in the book Melissa and Doug talk about not even considering a slip up. I repeat that to myself a million times a day. Eating off the Whole 30 plan isn't an option that I will consider. other notes: -Im training to run a 15K race in Feb, I'm totally out of shape so I'm using the 'Couch to 5K' iphone app to ease into more milage. I just completed Week 1, 8 more to go - I'm feeling heavy, overweight and not at optimal health. I'm excited about this focus on my overall health and am counting down the days until my first Whole 30 is completed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
