    WHOLE30 Starts Today! (3/30/2011)

    Shop Now
    So I know a bunch of people are starting on April fools day but I cannot live without health another day. I am starting this journal to record each day what I eat, how I feel, and how I move. Hopefully with some pictures.

    I plan on using Rob Wolf's Paleo matrix to help me build my meals, so expect some strange one-pot combinations.

    awesome, looking forward to it!

    I'm not doing a whole-Whole30 but I am going to be way more careful about sugar and gluten this month. I've had a bad couple of weeks!

    hope we can support each other.

    Day one done.

    Did LHT today for exercise - started a brand new 5x5 routine. Very easy to start, using the Stronglifts method, but still challenging for some muscles I never use.

    I had potroast around 11pm and then after the gym around 8PM my body went from not that hungry to CRAVING MEAT. My muscles were already sore from squats earlier in the week so I think they were just in need of protein. THat being said, I rushed to the store, bought a pound of ribeye, and consumed it all with a side of mushrooms and bell peppers.

    Overall I am feeling pretty good. Let's see how tomorrow goes!

    funny how when you work those muscles, they tell you what they need! Mine did that in a big way when I got back from vacation & started working out again.

    My day was a giant fail. Dad made my very favorite cookies for choir practice, the ones Mom used to make. I'm just going to eat them, and focus on the rest of my food/exercise best I can.

    btw your food looks awesome.

    Some people find that adding fat (butter, coconut products, etc) helps with the hunger.

    Good luck with the carb flu. It's not fun but it is temporary.

    Went to lunch today - got roast beef with tomato sauce. ASKED THEM if the sauce had HFCS. The waitress said "yeah, its sugar free." Comes back after the meal when I am finished and says "Oh sorry, it actually has HFCS, whoops. Hope that wasn't too much of a bother."

    THey wouldn't refund my meal.

    I have made a rule my whole 30 doesnt finish until I actually go 30 days. I'm tired of bullshit.

    Butter`s not allowed on the whole30
