Amyrotella Posted May 23, 2017 Share Posted May 23, 2017 Hey all! I'm starting Day 2 of my First Whole30. Reading all of your questions, posts, inspiration, recipes, struggles, and successes, has really put me in a good place. I was originally planning on starting on June 1st, but was so excited to start, I bumped it up to yesterday. I do not have anyone in my life to hold me accountable though, so I feel like sharing with this group will be my best bet to staying 100% compliant. On the whole, I am a pretty healthy eater. Last year, I started eating "clean", so many of my kitchen staples have already been converted. But it'll be good to come back to center by giving up the few indulgences I do have - like Doritos, nachos, and anything cheese related. Was never much of a sweets or chocolate person... but if this program forced me to give up carbs I would never be able to do it. I love to cook, so that is a plus, and live in an area with an abundance of available healthy food stores, so obtaining anything is not an issue. I'm not good at following recipes though, so I will likely make up most stuff you see here. I think it'll be okay. So my motivators are very real. I am not looking to lose weight, though I understand that's entirely possible and likely sticking to the program. When I went "clean" last year I dropped ten pounds in the first month without trying. But I have real sleep issues, that I think are tied to food, and I get acne breakouts and serious bloating, and some inflammation issues that I am hoping to find a cause for. Anyway... with all of that said... here are my day 1 and 2 plans. Day 2 of course, not yet done, but the plan is in place. And with the plan, then I stick with it Day 1 - I still had to do my shopping on Day 1! But made it through the day really easily, no cravings until nighttime, but I had a large cup of hot plain organic mint tea. B: 3 scrambled eggs with 1/2 green bell pepper and 1 large portabella mushroom, diced and lightly sauteed in EVOO, with garlic, S&P, 1 cup plain black coffee L: Lara bar, 1 avocado with basil, 1 tomato, and organic balsamic vinegar D: Pulled salsa chicken in crock pot (includes minced garlic, cilantro, lime juice, onions, green peppers, and tomato), roasted rosemary yams in coconut oil, and steamed broccoli and cauliflower Day 2 - I feel GREAT this morning. able to focus, up early, and ready to eat! B: 1/2 avocado, 2 large strawberries sliced, 2 Jumbo eggs O/E prepared with a spray of EVOO, 1 cup plain black hot tea L: Leftovers from last night - salsa chicken, broccoli, and roasted yams D: 1/2 avocado mashed with can of albacore tuna, lemon, in lettuce wraps, with side of roasted brussel sprouts I already have day 3 planned with some more leftovers and easy prep meals, but I want to force myself to log in and confess to how it went. thanks for listening!
