Whole30

Starting off day 5 and no issues. I can definitely see a difference in my quality of sleep, which has always been an issue for me. Late night cravings are there but controllable.

Whole30, day 2 lunch

Whole30, day 2 lunch


Whole30

Day2 starts today with ground pork, apple, and yam hash. Feeling good. The usual empty, less bloated, not hungry but not full feeling.

(So incredibly annoyed to have almost completely finished writing this only to have my phone die and not save a word of it, which works out well because apparently I have a few other things I’d like to add…)
Let’s start out with the fun part - numbers & progress:
Whole30 results:
-16 pounds lost
-9” lost in the waist
Back into my smaller jeans
I won a DietBet with 6 pounds of wiggle room (or rather less wiggle room, eh?!)
My complexion is 100% clear - a 100% improvement…
My kidneys have only hurt once (after a food tasting for the wedding) after suffering for almost 6 months
I have a better sense of well-being and control over food, which is something I struggled with for decades
I understand the affect grains, wheat, and processed foods etc have on my digestive system, weight loss efforts, and my mood.
Things that worked for me:
Scouring Whole30 websites and paleo blogs for recipe ideas
Cooking the bulk of all my meals for the week in a crockpot on Sundays - including doubling the recipes to last the week
Keeping it simple and eating several repeat meals: pulled pork chili, enchilada chicken stew, Brazilian curry stew & storing them in the fridge to grab and reheat
Reading and re-reading “It Starts with Food” throughout the 30 days to keep me mindful of the principles behind the diet.
Things that surprised me about Whole30:
I panicked at the thought of only eating three meals a day. As a habitual snacker, I had visions of starving to death between meals. Turns out if you follow Whole30 correctly that won’t happen. I made sure I ate enough protein and fat at each meal to keep me satisfied until the next. Which brings me to the next surprise:
I didn’t count calories at all in January. Well, I tried, mentally, to keep a running tally those first couple of shaky days, but I gave it up and followed Whole30’s approach to figuring out how much of each your body needs to stay satisfied.
I thought I’d be eying the Whole30 finish line. I’ve seen other people joke and lament that they can’t wait to finish and binge on a block of cheese. I, myself, have mused how much I’d like to have a margarita or cupcake. But now having been through Whole30 and loving it so much, I’m in no hurry to start celebrating with pizza, cheeseburgers and donuts. It kind of defeats the purpose of learning all these amazing things about how my body responds to food, only to undo all that hard work with a binge on a large pizza. (And for the record: not once after my binge last month did I blame it on Whole30 restriction, so y’all need to slow your roll with that talk, mmmkay? If you were really paying attention, you would’ve read that that binge came from dealing with a difficult grandma for days on end, a few stressful days of wedding planning and a frustrating interaction with the Mean Girls from the Knot(.com) - Like I’ve said many time before - food is my drug of choice. And that is why I LOVED and WILL CONTINUE to eat according to Whole30 principles: it brings order to my life where “everything in moderation” has failed to do so. In fact I feel like being on Whole30 kept my binge in check and I was able to move on rather quickly…)
Does that mean I’ll never eat pizza or french fries again? Um, no. It just means I have a better understanding of when and how much I should be eating them - which is hardly ever. And to add to that: the whole “junk food” crowd versus the “whole food” crowd is getting old. I joined tumblr for community and support, not to wage wars and justify why I choose to eat the way I do. I tolerate people questioning my food choices as much as I’d tolerate them questioning ANYTHING that has to do with my mental health and treatment of my relationship with food. 
I loved Whole30 and am excited to keep eating this way. I love the new foods I learned to cook. I love the order it brought to my eating. I love the results and I’m hesitant to begin the re-introduction phase as I’m not really looking forward to impending digestional issues and a complexion war! But at least I’ll have a better idea which foods I’m sensitive to.
And from there, into Whole60 I go!

This is what my 6am Monday morning looks like ☺️🍓

Looks good. I like the addition of mulberries and figs.

Beast Mode Dmitry Klokov - Jerk from rack with pause 210 kg CrossFit Brussels, Belgium.

Can we go ahead and realize that this is 80% of his best jerk. He has jerked 262 off the rack which is mind blowing.


So intense.

Good stuff

Well hit the gstore for veggies and meats. I am set for day one of whole 30 starting tomorrow!


fitnessfornerds:

From 2010 (top left) to today! I’m only about 10 months into my weight loss journey but that was the only decent pre-weight loss picture I could find of me in my swimsuit. I bought a bikini for the first time ever today and I was actually EXCITED to try it on! I can’t remember the last time I didn’t dread swimsuit shopping. I’m so proud of myself and can’t believe how good I look in a bikini!!!

Keep up the good work!

Whole30 starts tomorrow!
