Day 2...oops, Day 1


Recommended Posts

So yesterday was day one.  I completed my 1st Whole30 (actually 45) in 2013 and have always wanted to do it again b/c I clearly didn't understand the critical importance of the  whole reintroduction piece.  I fell hard off the wagon of good eating/drinking and went on a vacation where I was bloated swollen and generally felt like crap.  

I was doing well on day one, I had planned my meals and was drinking my water (no Diet Coke).  Then as he frequently does, my manager comes around with a bowl of bite sized candy bars.  Out of sheer habit, not desire or craving, I ate a little Twix bar.  I had barely even swallowed the thing when bells went off in my head telling me what I had done!  Fortunately it was only day one and restarting today was not a big deal.  So, here I go...


Today I had:

Breakfast sausage patty with 2 eggs, spinach and onion

Chicken Salad w/Lemon and Dill  on greens with lemon and scallions. https://www.skinnytaste.com/chicken-salad-with-lemon-and-dill/

Banana with Almond Butter

Cauliflower Rice Chicken Biryani https://www.skinnytaste.com/cauliflower-rice-chicken-biryani/


I have planned my meals through Friday as the 1st week is always more challenging and I anticipate being pretty wiped out after work for a few days as I adjust.  Glad to have finally committed to this again.

Things that I hope improve on this journey:

Joint pain - low back, hands, knees, hips
Nerve pain - sciatic, hands
Bloated feeling
Puffy face and eyes
Restless sleep
Difficulty staying asleep - waking multiple times of the night
General Anxiety
Dry skin
Inconsistent Bowels
Dry eyes
Scattered thinking - too many squirrels
Brittle fingernails
Clothes fitting better 
A few pounds gone would be GREAT!
