Cassie M Posted March 11, 2013 Share Posted March 11, 2013 Today is the start of my second ever Whole30! I did a W30 back in August 2012 and was really pleased with how I looked and felt. My intent on finishing was to go back to being about 80% Paleo, but in the 6+ months I've allowed myself way too many foods that make me feel terrible (physically and mentally). Having done one of these before, here are the improvements I would like to make this time around: 1. I was so focused on losing weight last time, but only dropped about 3 pounds by the end of the month. I have learned that my body simply will not go below a certain weight threshold, so the improvements I will be looking for are in my my measurements (particularly my "thunder thighs") as well as in my strength and endurance. 2. When I felt hungry on my last W30, my go-to food source was nuts. I've come to realize that, for me, nuts are "food with no brakes" (damn you, Brazil nuts!), so I'd like to cut down on how often I reach for the bag. I've since discovered the deliciousness of homemade kale chips and will look to this as a better snacking alternative. 3. I felt really tired last time around, and because I was eating so well, I stopped going to the gym altogether. This time around, I'm hoping to work out at least 3 times a week. So, here we go! Day 1: Monday, March 11th Breakfast: 3 egg muffins with bell pepper and 5 cherry tomatoes Snack: Unsalted mixed nuts - Day 1 and I already went there, but I swear it was in a controlled manner! Lunch: Zucchini ratatouille Snack: Unsalted mixed nuts (I limited this to a reasonable amount to tide me over until dinner!) Dinner: Pork chop with broccoli Day 1 is complete. I'm off to a good start, although I know I need to sort out my meals so that I don't need a snack in-between, but I exercised so much control both times I had nuts today, so I hope to just optimize my meals as I continue on.
