Acer75 Posted January 26, 2013 Share Posted January 26, 2013 Hi- Just finished eating a late lunch of curry chicken breast made with curry, turmeric, sea salt, garlic, onion, celery ,coconut milk and olive oil, served over a bed of leafy greens.It's super yummy and one of my favorite lunches while I have been doing this whole 30.. I only have a few days left on this journey . It's only been in the last week or so that I could really say that I am feeling 100% better than I did when I started this. I have noticed some things. I sleep better, I wake up more alert, my energy sustains throughout the day, and my workouts and recoveries are much improved. No more light headedness or dizzy spells that I was experiencing while working out . I am back to strength training and as of this week I kissed those pink and purple girly hand weights goodbye and moved on up to some real iron....well..for a girl anyways....I can use 15 lb for bicep curls and 10 lbs for shoulder /tricep work. I am doing lots of push up and lots of core work and feeling very strong. It's a beautiful thing. So, all this has got me thinking...how do I know if I should keep on keeping on with this? I am still having some cravings every now and then. Yesterday and today have been those kind of days in fact. Not sure what that is all about but I am sticking to my guns and just trying to feed my cravings with fats and protein if they get to where I really do want to eat that fish and broccoli dish... I am thinking the increased strength training could be where things are going wrong for me and I may need more carbs (veggies)??? Today is an off workout day but I am super hungry so I am eating a few more colorful veggies like mini peppers and squash. Tonight I am making sausage/beef meat sauce served over spaghetti squash. I can hardly wait.. it's one of my favorites. I think I want to do another 30 days but my overall question is : What kind things should we be experiencing , in general since everyone is different , at this point in the game? If I am still having cravings is that one of those definite YES, I should continue with another 30 or are cravings just going to happen no matter what from time to time? Thank everyone . This has been both one of the hardest yet more rewarding things I have done for myself. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
