Whole30 Daily Accountability

Recommended Posts

Day 0... working on cleaning up my paleo-ish eating habits. Goal is to lose weight and generally be more aware of what I eat... starting tomorrow. I’m wondering if I might also be able to kick the coffee bean this month, too, since I’m not the biggest fan of coffee made without milk!

Today’s meal log: (NOT W30 compliant)

coffee with whole milk 

steamed salmon with lime

salad

turkey burgers made with parsely and onion

handful of gummy candy that my friend offered me

10 paleo bites from costco

bowl of tortilla soup (with beans)

Day 0 again because I put milk in my coffee this morning without thinking lol  But I'm going to continue posting because tracking and accountability will help me get back on track, as it were...

Day 0

Coffee with Milk

Steamed Salmon for breakfast

Then shared candy that my friends were enjoying on the tennis courts...  Can't decide how I feel about sharing candy with friends...  I guess if I go whole hog into W30, that's got to go...  I think I need a bigger "why" to get started... If I'm going to do this thing.  I'll be thinking on that today.  I'd love to lose some weight, but I don't know if it's worth not indulging in social time with people eating sweets...  I'll give it a day of thought...

Second cup of half decaf was made with homemade almond milk (almonds + water + cinnamon) and coconut creme (canned, from TJ’s)... still causes a bit of a tummy upset for me, so wondering if I should stick with whole milk else try it black else give coffee up entirely.

OK, Day 1, FINALLY...

Step # 1 has been successfully achieved.  I have taken my half-decaf coffee black this morning. No milk.  This has been, oddly, my biggest hurdle to starting another W30... It's on, folks!

Oh, yeah.  I just got home from a hot yoga class and NOW I remember how cool it is to have a regular-sized belly...  Dairy definitely bloats me - it was one of the first things I noticed when I weaned myself off W30 last time... Today, even just the difference between having milk in my coffee versus taking it black is motivation for me to do this thing.  I can do it.  Here I go!

Day 0 again...

Made it through to 4:00 PM last night, then spending time socializing got me.  I'm not sure how committed I want to be to going through another W30 because it makes social time strange and adds stress to eating and somehow makes me feel angry - I don't know if watching what I eat and having restrictions is a good idea for me.  It really affected my mood yesterday while I was with friends.  But worse than that, focusing on eating (and restricting what I was "allowing myself" to eat) motivated me to eat cruddy food that I wouldn't normally eat in the first place...  I ate some rice crackers and yogurt and a few slices of cheese and a piece of blackberry crumble at a buffet that we had.  And then I was like "eff it" and ate some pad thai and some cookies, which I wouldn't have eaten normally, anyway...  It's like to focus on what I was eating created a monster in me.  And then I was left feeling fat, angry, self-loathing, and heavier this morning than I was yesterday morning. 

I don't know.  My diet is really pretty clean at the moment, save milk in my coffee, full fat Greek yogurt at night,  and the odd sharing of non-compliant foods with my friends. But the fact is that I am 25 pounds overweight and I really prefer being skinny.  But I am healthy, energetic, athletic, and really don't ever have to think about what I eat.  I'm conflicted. I do want to lose weight, but I don't want to add stress to my life.  Lord knows, I need to reduce stress, not add to it!  So, my conflict is, what is more stressful to me - being overweight or obsessing about food and dealing with the ramifications of errors along a W30 trial?  Hm.

Maybe I can focus on changing one thing at a time - maybe I start with drinking my coffee black, since that seems to be a sticking point for me...
