Day 5 here. Noticing some great changes to my energy levels, though I've been at work constantly and haven't been able to catch a Crossfit class. Got some sprints in on Sunday, when the weather decided to cool off to a balmy 103. I'm headed to the noon class shortly, and it's going to be an absolute killer WOD, so the W30 is getting put to the test!
Sleeps been good, but I didn't get to bed until 1:30am(!), and for some reason my alarm went off at 5:30, even though I didn't set it. Those Philips sundown clocks have minds of their own.
I tried to go back to sleep, but diarrhea kept me up. That's been the only thing... I'm don't usually have *that* problem. Maybe it's the cucumber-pineapple gazpacho, maybe the beets and sauerkraut, maybe the EVCO, I dunno. I never had problems with those things before.
I'm going to chime in on the TOM topic... I've experienced no fatigue, cramps(menstrual), moodiness, breast tenderness, minimal bloating. I'm giving the W30 credit for it. To be fair, I really cleaned my diet up a few days before starting, save the alcohol. Just some breakouts and a little bloating, which is going down.
All-in-all, I'm absolutely enjoying this paleo reset program. My mind isn't turning to old comfort foods, and non-paleo foods are looking mighty gross right now. Even french fries. Someone brought in a tray of cupcakes frosted in red glitter icing, my first thought was "oooo pretty shiny," then "those don't even look like food." And they smelled weird, like Crisco or something plastic-y. Of course they were gone in 20 minutes flat, but I had no part in it.
I'm still on a mission to find acceptable bacon, wish me luck!
