  1. Day 3 (17) Recap Sleep: 9:40 - 2something - 3something - 4:40 - 5:00 - 7.2 hours. Workout: Life got in the way, didn't officially get home till 8, had to get something for dinner, went back out got home from that at 9, went to bed at 10:30. BUT, I did get a 30 min walk in at work, almost broke 2 miles for that one. At least I'm getting this going again while the weather is good. Food: Snack: Banana Breakfast: leftover roast (the last eggs were claimed by the SIL) Lunch: leftover chicken tomato soup Dinner: No dinner was made, ended up with a bunless burger with onions, jalapenos, mushrooms, mustard and sweet potato fries, yay.
  2. Agreed, it does YOUR body good Now, to go find bell peppers and do this anyway
  3. I don't like cabbage very much, but if it was stuffed with that, I would nom that so hard

  6. Some good notes, while my wife needed to have some soda (like 1/3 of a glass), she managed to push through the headache to last night, which puts her at 7 days without soda, which is really good! I'm proud of her for slowly overtaking this massive addiction and not backing down. Also, tonight is going to be a challenge. Sleep-wise... my wife has to work 1am - 6:30am, so I need to take her to work tonight, so that she can get picked up in the morning. So I'm going to try and get to bed early, so that way the hour drive round trip won't eat into my sleep too much. Hopefully I can get back to sleep in short order and that doesn't mess with things, but we shall see. So here's the Whole 30 Timeline starting today through... well, almost the end (crazy to think I'm already halfway through). Days 16-27: Tiger Blood! You’ve hit the downhill slope of your Whole30 and life is beautiful—which means different things for different people. For some (generally people who came to the program eating well, exercising regularly, and feeling pretty good to begin with), Tiger Blood means someone flipped a switch and turned on the awesome. Energy is through the roof, cravings are under control, clothes are fitting better, workouts are stronger. For others, this Tiger Blood stage feels more like a real sense of self-efficacy. It doesn’t mean things are perfect (or even easy), but you’re proving to yourself that you can do this, things are getting better, and you’re seeing improvements (small or large) almost daily. Your energy is steadier, you’ve got a firmer handle on the cravings, and you’re experimenting with new, delicious foods. You may notice that your ability to focus is keener, your body composition is changing, your moods are more stable, you’re stepping up your exercise, or you’re just plain happier these days. Of course, this may not happen like magic at the halfway point. There are a huge number of factors that influence which benefits you see and when. If you’re one of those folks who has hit the halfway mark and isn’t seeing or feeling the dramatic changes others have reported*, know this: You’re not doing it wrong. If you began the Whole30 with a medical condition, a long and rooted history of unhealthy food habits, or a chronically stressful lifestyle, your “magic†may take longer to appear, and probably won’t be a “light switch†moment. Don’t stress about whether you’re feeling honest-to-goodness “Tiger Bloodâ€â€”be patient, and be on the lookout for small, gradual improvements to keep you motivated. Slow and steady still wins this race. *There really is no such thing as a “typical†Whole30. Honestly. There are just trends and common occurrences. - See more at: http://whole30.com/2013/08/revised-timeline/#sthash.nlnNGo3Q.dpuf
  7. Day 2 (16) Ongoing... Sleep: 9:55 - 4:00 - 5:28 - 7.4 hours. I woke up at 4 and decided I wanted to get a full 7hrs of sleep and I'm glad I did. I feel SO much better today. Workout: The plan, tentatively, is to go for a walk at lunch and to use my 25lbs kb for a workout before it gets too late tonight. Update: Got a walk in at lunch Food: Snack: Banana Breakfast: "mexican taco" aka, veggies and ground beef with seasonings and tapatio Snack: larabar Lunch: chicken tomato soup thing Dinner: Unknown
  8. Week 4 Day 1 (15) Recap Sleep: 12:40 - 5:20 - 4.9 hrs + 2hr nap = 6.9 hrs. I think I've come to the realization that a nap HELPS for the immediate, but for the next day, your sleep cycle is still cut short. Workout: N/A Food: Breakfast: I had 3 eggs with tapatio. yum Lunch: roasted carrots and broccoli and chicken, seasonings, baked sweet potato Dinner: Breakfast for dinner, sweet potato hash, eggs, and compliant sausage for the win and delicious! And to top it all off, I didn't have a snack afterward, so yay.
  9. Yeah. I'm not saying I should NOT be upset, just that how I acted was poor character in regards to it. I'm working on how I express my frustrations so that it conveys things properly instead of RAWR. Gotta work on being that good example for the ever watching kiddos. *hugs* Thanks, Fonzico. Agreed
  10. Day 1 (15) Ongoing Sleep: In anticipation of my best friend coming over to hang out late last night, I took a 2 hour nap during the day. Then I got to bed around 12:40 - 5:20 - 4.9 hrs + 2hr nap = 6.9 hrs. Doesn't feel like I got enough rest, but at least it's better than it could have been. Food: Breakfast: I had 3 eggs with tapatio. yum Lunch: roasted carrots and broccoli and chicken, seasonings, baked sweet potato Dinner:
  11. Week 3 Summary Workout: 2 KB workout Weather was cold, so walking wasn't much of an option most of the week. Drove a lot on the weekend, so that also ate up time. At least I got two workouts in this week, gotta pick up the pace. Food: I've been Whole 30 compliant this entire time. I'm excited. By the weekend, I could feel clearer when I got proper sleep. It's hard to explain, but have you ever gotten that "bright eyed" feeling? That's how I felt starting Friday. My SIL has taken to having a cheat meal, once a week. I had to apologize for getting offended when I found out she did it, cause she was trying to hide it from me and my reaction was less than stellar. So, I did the right thing and apologized for how I had acted and we talked about it. It seems she's was gonna stick with it when she went out with her boyfriend on Saturday, but the restaurant didn't give her enough lettuce on the burger, so she resorted to eating it all with the bun. I don't wanna be a jerk, but it hurts when you're struggling to do something WITH people and they flake like that. Not that I'm doing my health thing for them, but I don't want to see them flaking on themselves like that. Though, I suppose 6.6 days of clean eating is better than doing some shake breakfast thing, or quitting all together, right? On the bright side, her boyfriend is seriously considering doing Whole 30 for lent, that'll be whole 40 technically, but I think he'll lose a lot of weight if he does it. Of course this is a guy who lives on bread and cheese (he is from Packers land) My wife is doing great on Whole 30, food wise. She started getting a headache on Saturday and I think it progressed into Sunday, but she hasn't had to resort to soda yet, so we shall see how she does today, this is usually the limit 6-7 days. Sleep: 1: Midnight - 6:20 - 8:20 - interrupted sleep approx. 8 hrs. 2: 5.5-6 hrs. 3: 10:40-1:30-5:20ish - 5.9 hrs perhaps 4: 9:30 - 4:30 - 5:00 = 7-7.5hrs. 5: 10:58-2:57-alarms?-5:20 = 6 hours 6: 11:30 - 7 (wife got home) - 8ish = 8.4 hours 7: 12:40 - woke up at 7:40 - 7hrs I need to keep a better eye on the sleep. At least I got 4 days of good sleep, though the weekend is saving me. It's the weekdays I need to monitor better.
  12. What did you do to make it? Link please?? Yes yes and worlds of yes. Though at least things are progressing some.

  19. You said mexi--lalalalallalalalala I'm not listening *covers ears* it will run it's course, even if a massive tasty chimichanga with rice and beans and guac sounds so tasty right now, with cheeeeessseee...
  20. It was amazing (with a bit of garlic) I've craved cheese, but not to any extremes, but the days are still young Joy is craving "chips and dip" and ice cream. Not sure if they are together or not lol. How are you holding up?
  21. So I was curious what I'm in for again, since today is Day 12. Days 12-15: Boundless energy! Now give me a darn Twinkie. Hurray! The slump is over! Your pants fit again! Your energy levels are better than normal – you’re downright Tigger the bouncing tiger! But something weird is happening. You’re dreaming. Not crazy nightmare or strange surrealist dreams, either. Incredibly normal and realistic dreams – about donuts. Or Twinkies. Or Snickers.* In your mind, sometimes you get caught and feel guilty. Sometimes you just brazenly eat the contraband. But then, the feelings start following you into the waking hours. Suddenly, you’re craving things you don’t even like. (For me, it’s Diet Coke and Twinkies, for Melissa Hartwig, it was fast-food cheeseburgers!) Your co-workers’ heads transform into giant Girl Scout Cookies as you gaze on in disbelief. Seriously, you’ve almost hit the halfway mark, and now this?! All joking aside, though, this phase gets really intense and for some people. This is the part of the program where our minds try to drive us back to the comfort of the foods we used to know. Our food relationships are deeply rooted and strongly reinforced throughout the course of our lives and breaking through them is really big deal. Journaling can be especially enlightening and helpful during this phase, and helpful for reflection later. Take some time to jot down what you’re craving, how you’re feeling and what tools you’re using to work through the cravings. *The cravings people get, and the dreams they often have, rival those of pregnancy. One person told me they craved pickles and Doritos (together) during this phase!
  22. Day 5 (12) Ongoing... Sleep: 10:58-2:57-alarms?-5:20 = I'll say 6 hours tonight. For some reason my body felt like LEAD this morning. I couldn't will myself out of bed till 5:20, man was I groggy. Then about four minutes later my head was a clear as crystal, but I was already having to get ready for work. Workout: Booo, no. Gah, I need to do one tonight. I may get the kids to help me when I get home. That should help them keep distracted. Isaiah liked watching me last time I did a workout on Saturday (of course he still doesn't get the 'don't get too close while daddy is swinging a 15 lbs kettlebell' about gave me a heart attack when I was doing around the world pushbacks, but I digress.) I give my word I WILL do a workout today, no if's probably shoulds, or the like. I WILL. Food: Breakfast: Leftover chicken tomato soup (still freaking awesome) Snack: Cashews & Almonds Lunch: leftover onion/bacon/garlic burger w/ guac & sweet potato Snack: Unknown Dinner: Unknown
  23. Yesterday was actually pretty busy at work, so I didn't lurk too much around here. Let's see how things went down. Week 3 Day 4 (11) Recap Sleep: 9:30 - 4:30 - 5:00 = 7-7.5hrs. Workout: N/A - After dinner, no motivation was to be had and I shifted that to getting up in the morning, thinking that would do the trick. Food: Breakfast: leftover chicken stirfry Snack: Banana Lunch: Leftover burger n guac, and a sweet potato Snack: Larabar Dinner: The chicken spaghetti turned into chicken tomato/marinara soup. It was very good! Snack: Larabar
  24. Day 4 (11) ongoing Sleep: 9:30 - 4:30 - 5:00 - It was really difficult to get out of bed this morning, so I missed my workout window At least I got 7-7.5 hours of sleep with a normal interruption called the alarm Workout: Sadly no. So much willpower goes into everything else, this is a struggle just to keep up, but I'll get there, may take me the whole challenge, but I'll get there, gotta get that momentum rolling again. Food: Breakfast: I switched things up, had leftover stirfry for breakfast Snack: Banana Lunch: Leftover burger n guac, and a sweet potato Snack: Possibly a larabar thrown in the mix here... maybe one for morning snack, not sure yet. Dinner: A possible venture into chicken spaghetti... We've got chicken we need to use, we picked up a can of organic diced tomatoes and a bottle of organic marinara sauce, all whole 30 approved. I don't have a recipe to follow so I think we're going to just toss in some spices and let it do it's thing.
  25. Week 3 Day 3 (10) recap Sleep: 10:40-1:30-5:20ish - 5.9 hrs perhaps Workout: N/A Food: Breakfast: I had leftovers from last night with two extra eggs... tasty Lunch: leftover fajita innards and a banana, and some cashews Dinner: onion, bacon, garlic burgers w/ salad & guac
