Jenna's Whole30#1 log

Recommended Posts

I actually started my Whole30 on January 1, but I'm needing a place to communicate to others participating to see if I'm in the same boat, and see if anyone else has any suggestions or recommendations!

My reasons for doing a whole30 - I have a serious sugar addiction. Fountain Coke is my savior. I love chocolate cake. Sweets sweets sweets! Iced Chai Tea Lattes & Strawberry Acai refreshers are my favorites at Starbucks. Can you tell I have cravings right now?

I want to try and retrain my body not to crave sweets so much, while eating healthier as well. 

Not a huge goal to lose weight, necessarily. I'm 5'5" 128lbs. Although I would classify myself as "skinny fat." I've had two kids, my youngest is 4.5 years old. 

I'll start with yesterday's meals:

W30D6
Breakfast
Scrambled eggs with leftover Sizzling Pork Greek Salad mix (the pork, onions and olives). (SO DELISH. I could eat this every day.)
Whole grapefruit.

Lunch 
Side of mixed greens (without dressing) at Noodles & Co while my kids made me jealous with their Mac & Cheese.

Dinner
Spanish Chicken & Cauliflower

 

My biggest hurdle is the sugar cravings and the exhaustion right now. I don't drink coffee so finding a compliant caffeine source is an issue.

The cravings will get easier as you get further in! Have you tried the iced (unsweetened) black tea at Starbucks? It is good with lemon, or the passion fruit one is good too. You could also try Kombucha!

Monday night I had a bit of a meltdown, not wanting to cook but feeling stuck not knowing how to just "eat" and be full. I ended up grazing on a few things, striking out with a W30 approved BBQ sauce, but finding luck in the end. Yesterday I noticed I wasn't as tired as I have been. Today I'm feeling gassy and bloated, but blame the brussels sprouts.
