Hi,

I am preparing for the Sept 1, 2017 start of doing the Whole 30.   Background info:  I completed my first whole 30 last September 2016 successfully.    Felt great, lost weight, lots of energy,    I learned that food plays an important part in how I feel physically and emotionally.  The only dairy I bought back was lactose coffee creamer and honey came  back into my coffee.  I will now go back to black coffee.  There is so much meat on this plan and I consider myself a "flexitarian".  I am happy with a vegetarian meal, but I find it hard to get in protein on a vegetarian plan and I do feel better with protein.  I do find on a vegetarian meal, more wheat comes back into meals. 

After my first whole 30, my reintroduction was all over the place.   There were things I learned on my whole 30 that left a lasting impression,   I continued to learn as I reintroduced wheat, sugar, and dairy,  I admit the  year after it was a struggle - on plan - off plan.  I gained 10 pounds back.  Last year I did Whole 30 with my husband.  He had success and got off his high blood pressure medication and is still drinking coconut milk in his coffee (his skin is so beautiful and I attribute this to the coconut milk).  He did not veer off the plan as opposed to myself.   It was hard to keep the sugar dragon under control when I was eating sugar.   My hubby is not joining me this round, he is happy with what he is doing.  

I am still finding my way.   That was then and this is now.  I need to reset and see what happens after doing the Whole 30.  

I will continue to prep for Friday Sep 1.

Sep 1, 2017 - Friday

 

Meal 1 - 1200 noon - 2 hard boiled eggs, carrots and cucumber, watermelon, black coffee.

Meal 2 - 5:00  - fried egg in ghee, 3 pieces of back bacon, grape tomatoes, watermelon

 

I woke up late this morning, 10 minutes to get dressed and out the door.  Arrived at work for a super busy day and first break was at noon.   the hard boiled eggs  I prepared last night was the reason I could stay  whole  30 compliant under the circumstances.  I never wake up late.  

After meal 2, ,I went to bed because I was tired and when down for a nap.  It is now 8:21pm and too late for another meal.  I know it is not the ideal three meals - however, I went with what I could do and to stay compliant  was best today.  

Exercise :  Walked home after work (50 minutes) in the heat of 30 Celsius wearing black.
