eanderson013 Posted June 5, 2016 Share Posted June 5, 2016 Hello fellow Whole30'ers, Just felt like checking in here on Day 6. I am happy to report that the "Hangover" phase was surprisingly mild for me, I experiences a couple of days of fatigue, especially after work in the evening. It felt like I just couldn't keep my eyes open after work, I could have just gone to sleep at 8pm if I had wanted to. I had a couple slight headaches, but nothing that was too bad or lasted long. I think that taking walks in the evening after dinner helps, and I feel like I am starting to sleep a little better on days that I get some exercise after dinner. the food has been going well too! I am surprised I have not been craving the after work beer (or 3), or the copious amount of bread that I used to eat, but so far so good in that aspect. I have been cooking and prepping a lot, but find myself getting a little stressed out when I don't have the exact ingredients on hand, or have to whip up a batch of mayo or sauce on the fly. It is not that making the mayo or sauce is hard, and it only takes a few minutes, but I guess it is just the fact that it adds time to the meal prep and even more so that I have to clean up that many more dishes afterwards. I love cooking, but I am not a fan of the clean up afterwards. I do my best to clean up as I go, but sometimes the dirty dish aftermath from making a meal seems so daunting. I am about to go shopping for this weeks meals, and I am going to take a crack at setting my own menu for the week. This first week I followed the 7 day menu in the Whole30 book. Has anyone else had similar experiences with their first week, or any tips for planning their own menu, or dealing with the dish-pocalypse after making a meal. I look forward to hearing from you guys! Eric Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
