Jen's 5th W30 starting 6/1

Recommended Posts

I don't normally post food logs but I think it may be helpful this time in helping combat some of my disordered eating habits that I've been struggling with since beginning to track macros.  I posted in another forum but I have deleted My Fitness Pal off of my phone and placed my bathroom scale in my outside storage.  I'm starting to log my meals tonight but officially start tomorrow.  I'll also post "before" stats tomorrow.

Meal 1-Turkey burger topped with 2 eggs, 1/2 sweet potato with almond butter, grilled zucchini and yellow squash.  Coffee with coconut milk.

Meal 2-2 slices of roasted pork, Trader Joe's grilled cauliflower with ghee, olives, strawberries, GT's Gingerberry Kombucha

Mini Meal-Turkey burger, 1/2 cup grilled zucchini and yellow squash, small handful of sugar snap peas

Meal 3-Asian "noodle" Soup: Beef bone broth with sesame oil, ginger, garlic, chicken thigh, carrot noodles, spinach, and bok choy.  1/2 cup honeydew melon.

Water: 3.5 liters

Exercise: Rest Day

I am coming out of counting macros as well! I kept thinking about how many calories I was eating today and if I was under or over eating. Best of luck!

I hear you!  It's really hard not to freak out, especially when I put almond butter on my sweet potato this morning without weighing it out to the gram.  I'm definitely a little fat phobic even though they're delicious.  I know I need to trust the process and that I've had fantastic results the past 4 times I've completed a W30.  My goal is to just be comfortable eating regular portions again and to not obsess over numbers whether it be calories, macros, or the number on the scale.

Good luck to you as well!

Day 1 complete although it didn't go exactly as planned.  Apparently the digestive issues that I've been experiencing may be related to a bug I picked up while traveling last month.  I'll find out at my Dr's appt tomorrow but for now, my stomach and digestive system are super sensitive today.

 

Meal 1-3 eggs scrambled in ghee, steamed broccoli, and grilled zucchini and summer squash topped with ghee.  Black coffee.

 

Meal 2-Romaine, cucumbers, bell pepper, mango salsa, and 2 turkey burgers.  Side of a banana and raspberries/strawberries with coconut milk.

 

Meal 3-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 1/2 sweet potato with ghee.  Decided I was still hungry but being cautious due to my stomach upset in the afternoon, added 1/2 cup red potatoes and 1/2 palm of pork shoulder to my plate. (No photo)

 

Water-3.5 liters; C2O coconut water with ginger and turmeric for my upset tummy.

 

Exercise-3.5 mile walk; skipped Crossfit due to poor sleep and digestive upset.

Day 5:

Woke up around 4:30 this morning.  Able to go back to sleep for the hour before my alarm went off.  Initially a little sluggish getting out of bed but great energy once I was up.  Good energy through my busy morning and until 3pm.  Slight crash at 3, felt tired when I got home from work but went for a 5k run/jog with my dog.  Felt much better after my run and post-WOD meal.  Super hungry at dinner, possibly needed more fat during the afternoon.  I only had 1/2 cup of coffee this morning and usually I drink 2-3 cups which may have also contributed.  I found I just didn't want it.

Meal 1: 4 eggs, arugula, roasted brussels sprouts, plantains sauteed with coconut oil and cinnamon, 1/4 avocado, a drizzle of Primal Kitchen's green goddess dressing. (I ate this meal around 6am and needed it to last me until 1pm)

Around noon: 1/4 cup baby carrots, 2 cocktail cucumbers dipped in Primal Kitchen's ranch

Meal 2: 1 grilled chicken breast, romaine, cucumber, hearts of palm, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 cup mango salsa

Post-WOD: 1 grilled chicken breast

Meal 3: Ground turkey sauteed with brussels, onions, bell pepper, and kale, cauliflower rice, steamed butternut squash.  Side of strawberries and raspberries with almond butter.  (My stomach hurt for 15 mins or so after eating the almond butter and then went away.  It didn't seem to be from eating too much so maybe a sensitivity?)

Water: 3 liters

Exercise: 5k run/jog

Still hard to get out of bed this morning but overall good energy once I was up.  Slept really well last night.  Digestion is still iffy at best.  Definitely seeing less inflammation around my love handles and overall less puffy all over by the end of the day.  Workout was really good, felt much better than last week.

Day 7

Difficulty going to bed last night due to feeling so energetic.  Slept well once I was in bed.  Still hard to get out of bed in the morning.  Initially still felt full upon awakening but then was hungry after my shower.  Good energy level all day.  Meal 1 was a little light on protein/fat so I was more hungry then normal at meal 2.  Ended up eating a portion of my "emergency" mini meal since I was still hungry after eating my pre-planned meal.  Meal 3 was also slightly larger than normal due to being hungry.   Lesson learned, meal 1 needs to be substantial otherwise I tend to be very hungry later in the day.  Digestion also slowly seems to be getting better.

Meal 1:  Ground turkey sauteed with brussels, onions, bell pepper, and kale, cauliflower rice with ghee, large handful of spinach.  Coffee with 1-2 tbsp coconut milk

Meal 2: Romaine and spinach with 1 can albacore tuna, 1/4 avocado, 1 hard boiled egg, cucumbers, 1/3 cup or so mango salsa, 1 tbsp Tessemae's cracked pepper dressing,  Also ended up eating my sandwich bag of carrot sticks, cucumbers, and snap peas with a little Primal Kitchen's ranch.

Meal 3: 1 large chicken breast with osso bucco sauce, maybe 1/2 cup grilled asparagus, approx 1 cup grilled cauliflower with ghee, 1/4 large sweet potato with ghee.  Also 1 golden kiwi, 1/4 cup raspberries, and 3-4 strawberries.

Water: 3.5 liters; 1/2 GT's gingerberry kombucha

Day 8

Pre-WOD: 1/4 cup coffee with some coconut milk

Post-WOD: 2 egg white muffins with butternut squash, spinach, and bell peppers

Meal 1: Soup made with 2 cups homemade beef bone broth, 3 eggs, mushrooms, kale, and sweet potato.  Finished my coffee with coconut milk.

Meal 2: Turkey curry made with coconut milk and stir fry veggies with cauliflower rice; Smoothie with banana, pineapple, kale, flaxseed, whole egg, and water (I don't normally drink smoothies but it was a special occasion and a colleague went way out of their way to make sure I was included.  No more smoothies for the month).

Mini meal: 1/2 serving coconut flakes, beef jerky, baby carrots

Meal 3: 1 grilled chicken breast, grilled zucchini and yellow squash, plantains sauteed in coconut oil with cinnamon, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 cup honeydew melon

Still not sleeping well, generally restless last night.  Fairly decent energy considering my broken sleep but definitely tired at the end of my work day.  It might have also been just a hectic workday which contributed to my feelings of exhaustion (I'm a mental health clinician).  Otherwise, a generally good day.

Slept slightly better last night.  Energy level was good all day.  Upped my fat in meal 1 and really struggled to eat meal 2.  Also felt awful during my workout because there wasn't enough time between meal 2 and my workout at 4:30.  My stomach is definitely swollen tonight probably from the combo of the heat and WOD.

Day 19

Day started off with good energy.  Sleeping slightly better, more restful but still waking up a few times every night.  Definitely had a huge energy crash later in the afternoon starting around 3pm.  I'm thinking I didn't eat enough over the weekend or during the day and it finally all caught up to me.  So so so tired all evening and finally crawled into bed at 10pm after my husband and I got home from the movies, thus the late post.

Meal 1 (7am): Hash made with 2 red potatoes, 2/3 of a red bell pepper, 1 cup Brussels, 1 chicken apple sausage, topped with 2 eggs fried with ghee.  There was a good amount of ghee added to the hash as well.  Coffee with collagen and nutpods.

Meal 3 (5:30pm): 1 palm baked sockeye salmon with 2-3 cups stir fry veggies with sesame oil and coconut secret teriyaki sauce.  Still hungry after, so had 1/2 palm nom nom paleo kaula pork and 3 baked chicken breast tenders (maybe 1/2 palm worth).  Another pink lady apple and package of raw mixed nuts about 45 mins later while in line for the movie since I did not have time to continue prepping food at home.

Day 20

Slept really well last night.  Initially was going to go to the gym this morning but still felt tired when my alarm went off at 5:30.  Went back to sleep for another hour.  Better energy level today, although feeling a little light headed in between meals today.  Starving at dinner time and definitely wanting carbs (not sugar as fruit didn't sound super appealing).  Face is more broken out today, recently upped my consumption of nuts which may be contributing.

Meal 1 (7am): 3 eggs scrambled in ghee, 1 chicken apple sausage, steamed broccoli with ghee, farmhouse culture saurkraut.  Coffee with collagen and nut pods.

Day 21

So I kept eating after I posted last night.  I was legitimately still hungry so I had a chicken apple sausage and a couple bites of chicken breast.  I will say that eating that food after posting really spiked my anxiety though.  It almost felt binge like and like I was hiding that I ate more which is definitely my eating disorder trying to get the best of me (and yes, I'm currently in treatment...).  Due to the spike in my anxiety, I didn't sleep super well and was very restless all night.  With that being said, I still had good energy today.  I upped my fats in my meals today to help combat the light headedness I've been experiencing and felt so much better.

Meal 1 (6:15am): 3 eggs fried in ghee on top of a hash made with 1 fist sized sweet potato, 1 cup brussels, 1 chicken apple sausage, and 1 bell pepper.  Liberal amounts of coconut oil was used while cooking the hash.  Coffee with collagen and nutpods.  Also an americano about 2 hours later.

Meal 2 (12:15pm): 2 palms chicken breast tenders, grilled asparagus, cauliflower rice with ghee, 1/4 cup mango salsa, 1/2 avocado.

Pre-workout (4:15pm): Blueberry RXBar (these bars are the only thing I can stomach this close to a workout which is unfortunate but it is what it is)

Post-workout (6:15pm): 2 chicken breast tenders, 1 small red potato with salt

Meal 3 (8:15pm): 1.5 palms of PaleOMG's Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf topped with sauteed onions, compliant bacon, and pickled jalapenos.  Large arugula salad with cucumbers and tomatoes topped with balsamic vinegar.  Brussels sauteed in compliant bacon fat.

Water: 3.5-4 liters

Exercise: CrossFit-Strength OHS at 65# for 5 reps, 85# for 5 reps, 105# for 3 reps, 115# for 2 reps; 4 rounds for time of a 200m run, 20 box jump overs, and 40 double unders (14:40); Full Snatch accessory work-5 hang squat snatches at 55# and 5 hang squat snatches from the knees at 55#
