RBCali Posted July 23, 2017 Share Posted July 23, 2017 I'm pretty much a do-it-yourselfer, but the Whole30 Daily's keep pushing having a support group to make the Whole30 journey more successful. So, in addition to my few co-workers who I have told about the Whole30 (who'll be watching to see if it works), I thought posting my successes (and missteps) each day would be a help. So feel free to comment away so we can start a conversation. I am on Day 3 and feeling pretty good. Day 2, yesterday, I did wake up feeling sluggish and achy, like the hangover discussed in "what to expect". My main issues are snacking, especially at night, and just plain not knowing what to make to eat. So, if I'm having a stressful or distracted day, I go through the fast food line because what I've packed for lunch doesn't sound good. I started my Whole30 on a three day weekend knowing I'd be able to spend all my time focusing on getting a good start. I've gone grocery shopping (I'm a member of Real Plans), prepared many of the foods I'll need for the week, and hoping when Monday comes, I'm fully prepared. I'm off today so I have a full day planned so will be able to keep busy enough to fight the snacking urge. The real test will be the work week. Since snacking is an issue of mine I am eating only three meals a day with no snacking in-between. I know it's okay to have compliant snacks, but I'm trying to break the snacking cycle I've been in for so long. I hope I can pack big enough lunches to keep me satiated until I get home. I work a 9.5 hour day so only having one meal in the middle of the day is going to be a challenge. I'm used to having food throughout the day, especially when the day drags. I may have to experiment with the timing of my meals to keep on track. Thanks for reading my post and any suggestions on how to time my meals during the work week would be greatly appreciated.
