KensingtonC's FIRST Whole30 Log

Recommended Posts

DAY 1 JAN 23 2017 - Here we go!!!

What an exciting place to be! I am thrilled to have found Whole30 and even more excited to begin this journey. I stumbled onto Whole30 via a blogger, several months ago. I thought it a little silly at first; and I will be honest, I didn't understand the point. But that one exposure planted the seed, and as the days and weeks went by I realized that I do have a lot of issues that are probably food-related, and that it's high time I addressed the most modifiable factor: my nutrition. I've been exercising regularly and I feel great, and much more fit than I had been, but I know that "abs are made in the kitchen." :-) I bought It Starts With Food, read it cover to cover over the course of two nights, and then bought Whole 30 and haven't looked back. Over the past three weeks I have been slowly cutting out sugar and transitioning over to the plant and meat-based foods that Whole30 preaches about; and already I notice a difference.

I also have 3 young children (1, 3, 5) and it is important that I role model good eating habits to them.

STATS DAY 1 JAN 23 2017:

  • Height: 5'8.5"
  • Weight: 148#
  • Body fat %: 30%
  • Waist circumference:

  • Snacks: Dried unsweetened mango; roasted salted cashews

MOOD:

Optimistic, but feeling tired today after the weekend.

SLEEP:

Woke up at 6:15; aiming for bed by 10.

DAY 1 CONTINUED, JAN 23 2017

Well, lesson learned: no editing previous posts! I'm going to need to start posting my day at the END of the day in order to capture everything that happened...that will be good discipline for me.

FOOD:

  • Breakfast: Coffee w/compliant almond milk (2 cups); scrambled eggs (3) made w/EVOO; cherry tomatoes (5); raspberries (6oz)
  • Lunch: Baked chicken breast w/basil, tomatoes and onion; compliant bacon (2 pieces); roasted red potatoes; roasted tomatoes
  • Dinner: Chicken w/TJ's Curry Sauce, red bell peppers, onion & tomatoes; baked russet potato
  • Snacks: Dried unsweetened mango; roasted salted cashews

MOOD:

Optimistic, hopeful but feeling tired today after the weekend. Also, it's interesting to note how "clean" my body feels when not eating my normal foods; I was driving to pick up my daughter at preschool and I just felt lighter in general and like I was eating to fuel, not treat an emotion. I need to remember this when the tough times hit!! Also, I fear I have a slight headache coming on.

DAY 1 CONTINUE, JAN 23 2017

Well, I really am learning a lot today.

Note to self: Very tired this afternoon; when the baby and the 3 year old took their naps, I took one as well for about 30 minutes. Woke up foggy but that only lasted a couple of minutes. I made a decaf coffee with heated full-fat coconut milk and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg; SO GOOD! Tasted like a latte! I wasn't trying to replicate anything, but rather I wanted a warm creamy drink this afternoon and just added about 3 oz of the decaf coffee to my heated coconut milk.

I will complete the Day 1 final tally tonight before bed. I am looking forward to dinner though; curry simmer sauce with chicken and veggies. Picture of my lunch attached, just for the heck of it!

FINAL DAY 1 TALLY, JAN 23 2017

FOOD:

  • Breakfast: Coffee w/compliant almond milk (2 cups); scrambled eggs (3) made w/EVOO; cherry tomatoes (5); raspberries (6oz)
  • Lunch: Baked chicken breast w/basil, tomatoes and onion; compliant bacon (2 pieces); roasted red potatoes; roasted tomatoes
  • Dinner: Chicken w/TJ's Curry Sauce, red bell peppers, onion & tomatoes; compliant bacon (2 pieces); roasted red potatoes
  • Snacks: Dried unsweetened mango; decaf coffee w/4 oz full-fat coconut milk, cinnamon & nutmeg

MOOD:

Later in the day today I was really tired and napped for about 30 minutes. Then around dinnertime I perked up again.

MOVE:

I don't work out on Mondays; so, nothing today! Just relaxing.

SLEEP:

Woke up at 6:15; aiming for bed by 10.

CHALLENGES:
I definitely used the mango, while compliant technically, as a replacement for sweets. I was craving sweets and went for the dried fruit. Next time I will wait the 5 minutes out and distract myself. Was also difficult to watch my husband eat his curry chicken with naan, and not have a bite! He's supportive but also not participating in Whole30 so...might be a bit difficult.

I'M PROUD OF:

Not eating the naan tonight; registering for this forum and actually posting; making clarified butter

DAY 2 JAN 24 2017

Rough start to the day; our 12 month old woke up at 3am with a temperature of 103.6 and didn't get back to sleep until 5 or so, which means I was also up for those 2 hours! Waking up today was tough, and staying awake was even harder! I took a quick nap while the younger two slept. Our 5 year old also had to stay home from school because HE woke up with a temp of 101.7. This has been the month of sicknesses for sure!!

FOOD:

  • Breakfast: Coffee w/coconut milk (1 cup); Larabar (coconut cream pie)
  • Lunch: Shredded chicken w/Italian herbs & spices; compliant bacon (2 pieces); roasted red potatoes; roasted tomatoes; Granny Smith apple
  • Dinner:
  • Snacks: Dried unsweetened mango

MOOD:

Tired! Always tired. At least I didn't work today.

MOVE:

My exercise schedule is: Wednesday kickboxing, Friday tabata or HIIT, Saturday strength, +/- Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Today is an off day because of the sicknesses in our house.

SLEEP:

Woke up at 7:00 but this is late for me.

CHALLENGES:
All the sick people clinging to me!!

All the sick people clinging to me!! Also made our entire salad from scratch including the dressing, chicken, etc. It was SO GOOD! It's the recipe from the Whole30 book and a red wine vinaigrette recipe from Pinterest. I meant to take a picture but forgot! Definitely would make again, and I feel light but not hungry now, post-dinner. Nice.

I'M PROUD OF:

Getting through this day with patience and a smile. We definitely had our moments...

UPDATE, and STARTING OVER :-(

Well, I worked a lot this week, so I didn't get a chance to post on days 3 & 4, but I was compliant and they went well! Then I got sick, and had a glass of wine, and that was that. How I felt and my plan for starting over:

HOW I FELT:

Days 1-2 felt good! It's clear that the key to Whole30 is the prep, no question. Last Sunday I made so much food and it worked really well. Our meals this week - pot roast, Greek salad, chicken - were wonderful and filling. I'm excited to do this again next week. Days 3 and 4 I felt like I was getting the flu - turns out I was getting sick! Head cold, sinus infection, GI bug (all of which the kids had earlier in the week). I also skipped a workout yesterday, but made it to mid-week kickboxing and am going to workout this morning as well.

STARTING OVER PLAN:

Day 1 will be Monday, January 30. This gives me the opportunity to prep on Sunday and hopefully I won't be quite so sick anymore. I think, though, that even going through the first 4 days of Whole30 taught me a lot in terms of what is important (prepping!) and how to manage food cravings, and how hungry I am during the day/how much food I need. I'm really looking forward to starting over to be honest!

DAY 1 (TAKE 2), JAN 30 2017

I woke up still sick, but slightly better, and actually excited to start Whole 30 again! I realized that last week I hadn't been following the meal template very well; I had a LaraBar for breakfast 3 days in a row which, while easy, doesn't meet the palm-sized protein followed by veggies template. So this week I'm going to try and really follow it! I also found myself looking forward to feeling so "light" again.

FOOD:

  • Breakfast: Coffee w/almond milk (2 cups); eggs (3); bacon (3 slices); tomatoes
  • Lunch:
  • Dinner:
  • Snacks

MOOD:

Sick, tired, but getting better

MOVE:

Mondays are my day off from exercise, though yesterday I did a 40 minute strength workout at Eupraxia.

SLEEP:

Woke up at 6:30; though I took a Benadryl last night because I'm so stuffy.

Didn't eat any veggies for breakfast, I find this difficult! Also I'm not usually in the mood for eggs in the morning and struggle with choking them down. Meat is much more palatable for me.

I'M PROUD OF:

Watched my husband eat a Mediterranean panini that smelled wonderful but really had no craving to indulge in the same.

Oh man I wanted a Diet Coke SO BADLY today at lunchtime. Wish I hadn't had the green juice. Still too fruit-heavy, no veggies at breakfast. I just don't know how to choke them down!! I could definitely eat a smoothie if that was appropriate, but I know Whole30 frowns on smoothies.

Hi, I buy it shaved really thinly from the grocery store deli counter; I specify shave "as thinly as possible" and buy at least a pound, then eat as much as I want for lunch. :-) Good luck to you!! I hope it's going well so far.

I just want to caution you about deli meat. It is very rare to find compliant deli meat. Please make sure you've double-checked all the ingredients with the counter person.

Last week wrap-up:

FOOD:

Did pretty well overall; I think I'm slowly figuring out how the meal template works best for me, and which foods I do well with vs those that I don't.

MOOD:

Overall good last week! Though a couple really tired days/early mornings. I was sick the first half of the week.

MOVE:
Sunday HIIT + strength, Wednesday kickboxing, Thursday HIIT + strength, Saturday hot Vinyasa flow yoga

SLEEP:

Good overall

 

-----

This week's plan:

Prepping for the week today. Helpful I think to write it all out here, so here's what I'm thinking:

FOOD:

  • BREAKFASTS: I made compliant bacon in the oven this morning but need to make more. Still haven't found a good solution for veggies for breakfast! And I can't stand the thought of eggs right now, although this weekend at a farm-to-table, whole food restaurant I ate fried eggs on wilted greens with peppers, onions and garlic and it was fantastic. So perhaps I could try something like that this morning and see how it is. Trying to avoid LaraBars this week. Maybe try an egg-meat-apple scramble? My nutpods creamer is almond and coconut based so that's a good AM source of fats.
  • LUNCHES: Shaved deli chicken (which is compliant thankfully, we have a great co-op); leftovers; seared chicken in salad
  • DINNERS: Monday is up to me, probably some sort of baked chicken dish. Tuesday is "tacos" with friends at our house. Wednesday is a new recipe probably a skillet meal. Thursday is crock pot.

CHALLENGES:

I still am just not a big breakfast eater. Eggs are OK but I NEVER want them within an hour of waking up, and anything else other than bacon just makes me sick, including vegetables. I am hoping a combination of bacon plus veggie smoothie is OK, or a Larabar. There is literally nothing else I can stomach and isn't is more important to eat than not to eat?

I'M PROUD OF:

Prepping and grocery shopping today even though I am tired and I think I have a sinus infection.

I'M LEARNING:

  • Anything processed & with wheat is a gateway food for me, I think. Sugar cravings seem to be directly related to how much I want something processed.
  • Alcohol, likewise
  • I crave sugar whenever I am very tired, very sad, or just woke up and need a boost. Not healthy! That's not using food as fuel.
