  • Whoooooo and Day 1 of my real Whole 30 begins. I'll allow butter and cream just for my coffee.

    No relapses even during TTOM. Coffee should seriously be treat enough for everything.

    I also ordered a bunch of BCAA through Amazon, so I should feel a lot less uneasy about training fasted and not feeding right away. I might even skip dinner now

    • I really don't understand why I had so many cravings for chocolate yesterday. Makes me want to kind of cheat and make "chocolate" out of my coco oil and cocoa and stevia.

      But Days 2 and 3 went by really well! I drank chai tea at night before going to sleep. I think it may have caffeine effects on me because I couldn't get to sleep very well. Will switch over to dandelion (omg that stuff smells like Chinese herbal shop...-.-) which will probably completely kill any cravings whenever I have some of the tea. The tricky part is waiting for it to brew for 15 min.

      My BCAA is coming on Friday. Can't wait!

      • Maybe I'm misreading my carb cravings as food cravings? Hmmm

          • Holy crap, you are more of a chocoholic than I am! Fun read, though.

            • Thanks! XD I mentioned to my coworker the other day that 30% of my grocery bill is in chocolate (although it's actually more like 30% of my calories for a more accurate measurement...) I found that once I've switched to the sweeter varieties (70% instead of 90%), I eat a lot less of it.

              • This past Thursday I attempted some light squats because of my still-slightly-injured hip, and bench presses. I PR'd on the bench at 115x1? Although I'm pretty sure I hit this PR before I started my mass carbphobic month that prevented me from any gains. Oh well! At least I'm back up to this benchmark.

                • I started doing fasts as well. This past week I've only had black coffee for breakfast and on Thursday I went to the gym on a ~20 hour fast. I think it helped me feel stronger, but my stomach started to hurt because it wasn't digesting anything LOL. I need to get used to it better. But it has definitely cut down my caloric intake and chocolate cravings, especially right before TTOM. 2/6 days I had chocolate after dinner and yesterday I also had cheese. Caloric intake varied from 1600 to 2700 (lifting days 1600 and post-lifting days 2300-2700) I also think the 150g protein every day helps, especially if I try to pack it all into one meal!

                  • Wow yesterday was kind of an awesome cheat day. I spent St. Patty's Day gaming with my friends LOL ~ I'm not really huge into the bar scene anyway.

                    I had approx 8 mile walk at the gym and to the library, so I rewarded my long exercise regime by eating lots of yummy food. I ate 6 pounds worth of tomatoes in sundried tomatoes, 1 pound of duck liver, 3 lindt chocolate bars, 6 eggs, and 1 pound of sweet potato. I am also really juiced up right now for my deadlift session at the gym. Yayyyy

                    • Good luck Sakura! I'm Chinese so I know what food you're eating when you list haw flakes or moonseed cakes (they're traditional comfort food lol). ;D
                      You sound like quite an athlete too. I think I'd feel like a weak pea standing next to you...

                      • No worries, I bet you are pretty strong too I do it because I want to be useful in dragon boat - I'm sure you've heard of the sport? ;P

                        • Of course! My friend does dragon boat racing too! Do you have to workout one arm more in particular just to balance the strength of the other arm? :P

                          • Lmao, sadly that doesn't happen. It's more of a core activity, so if anything gets bigger/stronger, it's my abs, back and shoulder. D'oh haha. Lifting weights does help to balance it outside of water training, though. It just sucks when I do situps and I start leaning to one side because one oblique is stronger than the other XD

                            • I too have a chocolate fettish. I didn't always used to be this way. When I was younger, the smell of chocolate would make me sick. Then, then I got pregnant with Gabi. That was it, I was all over chocolate. I haven't turned back since then, but I have found solace in darker chocolates. Since my mom is about to open up her own chocolate business, there never seems to be a shortage of new ideas to taste test for her. She mostly does dark chocolate truffles that are sooooooooo dang delicious!

                              • Wow, I'm so jealous! I'd love to be a taste tester if your mom needs a 3rd opinion. ;P
