The Captain Posted March 7, 2013 Share Posted March 7, 2013 07 March 2013 Sleep: ~5 hours. First day, first entry. Feeling pretty good. Struggling with a headache and fatigue, which I can safely blame on my "Last Meal" of non-compliance junk last night. Should have quit while I was ahead. I won't feel too bad about it though, because if anything it's just made me more committed to breaking the habit. I guess I always tried to block out the connection that treating your body like crap will make you feel like crap. Still, despite the physical unpleasantness, my emotional outlook and mental energy are both pretty great. So. Let's begin with some numbers. Now, these are very special, very secret numbers that have never, ever been shared before. Not even with myself. I avoid taking measurements beyond bust/waist/hips, and I do my best to fudge a little on those the few occasions I have needed to take them. Consider yourselves lucky. Here's the whole, honest truth: Starting Weight: 202lb Starting Measurements: Bust: 43 Chest: 38 Waist: 38 Hips: 47 Thigh: 29 Calves: 18 Upper arm: 14 Forearm: 11 Neck: 14 Starting Body Fat: ~35% ...That hurt a little. Weight loss isn't the only or even the main reason I'm beginning Whole30, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to feeling those numbers start shrinking. Thanks to my little farewell party (of one) to my old eating/thinking habits last night, my measly five hours of sleep still gave me a wake-up time of sometime after 10:00AM, and I didn't have breakfast until a bit after eleven. As of 12:20 while I'm writing this, I'm feeling pretty satisfied, although I will probably try to have a small-portion lunch soon just to get my schedule back on track. And now for the food log, which I want to stick to at least in the beginning. I'll edit in the rest of it as I get to it. Day 1, Breakfast: Blackberry glazed, thin-cut boneless pork chop (clarified butter) ~1/2 dozen blackberries in balsamic vinegar. Sweet Potato hash with cumin and garlic (clarified butter) Handful of spring greens (drizzle of EVOO) Day 1, Lunch: Salad. Base: Spring green/spinach mix. Protein: Steak pieces, one hard boiled egg. Filler: Pear, mini crunch sweet peppers, chopped dates. Dressing: Whole grain mustard, EVOO, shallot, apple cider vinegar. Edit: Still hungry after the salad, so added another boiled egg, a few more mini peppers, and a small handful of cashews. Feeling good now! Day 1, Dinner: â€‹Still struggling with headache from this morning. A couple hours ago stomach started giving me trouble, and now halfway through dinner I'm massively, massively nauseated. Not sure if it's from general crappy feeling today or from the food changes, but the headache + stomach combo is making wish for a rock to curl up and die under at the moment. Can't even stomach sipping on ginger tea. Taking a break for now, I'll come back to dinner later if I'm up to it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
