Dee55555 Posted September 1, 2016 Share Posted September 1, 2016 I finished my Whole 30 on Tuesday and this is my 4th one so I know what I can eat without much effect and what I need to avoid. I'm not doing reintro this time. I didn't think I would really experience anything dramatic as this is my fourth time doing the program, but I feel like I did. This whole 30 was the easiest one yet. I just did it. I didn't complain about all the cooking/cleaning and the fact that I couldn't have wine wasn't as horrible as it can be or as it sounds. I attended social functions and it wasn't that bad to not drink. While I don't drink every day I do enjoy once or twice a week having something and I thought it would be hard and it wasn't. During this whole 30 I kept track of all my non-scale victories as they happened. By Day 3 I wasn't hungry all the time, by Day 4 I was less bloated. By Day 6 I had energy to start working out again (yoga only). By Day 14 I was sleeping good and my energy was back. By Day 15 i started running and felt really amazing and thought wow now my energy is really back. On Day 19 due to a crazy work day I didn't eat lunch for hours and I felt totally fine (that wasn't a goal it just happened and normally would be disastrous for me). By Day 21 I realized I was never ravenously hungry (as at times I used to be) and I noticed that things that might normally bother me (work, stress, etc) didn't faze me much. The last 7 days of this Whole 30 flew by and all of a sudden 30 days had passed. Yesterday I had some wine and fish tacos and both were delicious, but today I'm eating Whole 30 and I feel great. This was a really good Whole 30 and I think the best one yet. I hope now that I'm riding my own bike when I want to go off of this way of eating too much that I'll look back at this list to remind me why I like to eat this way. Ps. I dropped down a size in my jeans and also lost 7 pounds. I was happy about that too. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
