Whole30 (second time) - Starting July 15


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! 

Going in to Whole30 for the second year in a row (completed last year, but reintroduction was not done well). My boyfriend and I are excited to give it a go, and we already kept a few good habits from last year (e.g. drinking coffee black or only with ice, cutting out most dairy). 

 

First day log:

  • Breakfast - scrambled eggs and bacon with coffee/orange juice
  • Lunch - salad with walnuts
  • Dinner - steak salad with cilantro-lime mayo (from Whole30 book) 
  • Dessert - Peach

  • PWO snack - spinach with hard-boiled egg
  • Lunch - Ribs, watermelon, carnitas with/cilantro (attended a friend's BBQ, so I had to scavenge a bit)
  • Dinner - Tuna with sun-dried tomatoes over spinach

 

Other notes:

  • Workouts - one cardio/strength training (1 hour, 8 minutes) and yoga (35 minutes)
  • Cravings - definitely craving sugar and carbs! I keep thinking about having a cookie or some pasta
  • Stomach discomfort - noticed some slight nausea and cramping in stomach after dinner

Day 22 log:

  • Brunch - salad (with carrots, tomatoes, spinach) and balsamic vinaigrette, bacon, and seasonal fruit (watermelon, apple, blueberries, banana) 
  • Dinner - cod with potato slices 
  • Dessert - watermelon 

Other notes: 

  • Workouts - yoga (32 minutes); cardio/strength training (1 hour) 
  • Starting to hit that point where I'm ready to be "done" with Whole30, but sometimes alternating with the "tiger blood" of feeling absolutely amazing. I have also found myself growing more tired of being unable to go out to eat/order delivery except on rare occasions (especially with my diet being further restricted from eating eggs/chicken which are usually the Whole30 compliant recipes at restaurants).
