1 week into the Whole30

I’m only feeling pangs of cravings occasionally, nothing major.

I also am not feeling hungry- at all and no longer needing to snack.

I’m noticing more energy and feeling a bit better overall.

As the days go on, I’m getting more confident that I will be able to get past this and stay on the right track. I started out eating 2-3 fruits per day, yesterday I only ate one and I’m wanting to do at least one week without fruit to make sure I kick the sugar cravings, if I haven’t already.

Yesterday, I decided to start the Whole30.

Today is day 2 and already the cravings are unreal.

I know I’ll get past this and I’m hoping I’ll feel as great as people have said they feel but I’m already counting down to May 22 when I can start reintroducing.

Yesterday i went basic with boiled eggs for breakfast, tuna salad for lunch and game hen, sweet potatoes and mixed steamed veggies for dinner but I did snack on some pineapple after dinner. Today I’m working on cooking a bit more. I made sweet potato hash for breakfast and I’m not sure what will be for lunch yet, but im still 2 hours away.

As long as I can find things to do to take my mind off eating, I should be fine.

I have decided that on January 1st

I’m finally going to commit to the 30-60 day Whole30 diet.

As of right now, even sticking with strict gluten free, I’m right back to feeling sick all the time. I’m not sure if it’s dairy or if there is something else I’m now sensitive to but the Whole30 is the best way to find out from what I can see.

I have failed multiple times, but I’m sure I should be able to commit to 1 simple month of whole foods. I have checked out so many recipes, it will just involve making my own birthday cake since my birthday is in January.

 

I just signed up for a holiday HIIT 3 days a week program. HIIT workouts have always been my favorites and with some really busy weeks, the 15-17 minute workouts should be feasible. My two year old has enjoyed joining me doing the Stronger workouts (livestrong website) and she’ll love joining these as well. I’m not trying to set any kind of New Years Resolutions, those are never kept, I just prefer starting things on the first of the month- it’s easier to track progress.
