I have been wanting to try the Whole 30 for a month or so now but wanted to get the Great North Run and our holiday out the way. I have heard such good things about it and I think the thing I am going to find the hardest to cut out is sugar and wine. I love wine and chocolate on a Friday night to relax. It will be fizzy water and frozen grapes instead!
I have decided to try and keep a daily diary of how it goes and hopefully not bore you all senseless! I am also interested to see if it keeps in with the Whole 30 time line.
As predicted from the time line, I am feeling good and enthusiastic. I did some batch cooking on Sunday as I have a busy week planned so feeling organised and ready.
Breakfast is a tasty (although slightly over cooked) breakfast casserole made with eggs, grated butternut squash, GF sausages, onions and peppers. I have four portions for each day.
I have had a pre-run snack today of nuts, seeds and banana (little amount of each).
Lunch is a portion of Turkey Chilli made with loads of veg.
Pre swim snack is a nakd bar. I really need to sort out a better pre exercise snack
Dinner was a slow cooked chicken casserole. I added extra chicken portions for later in the week. I totally forgot to take a picture.
So day one has gone well. I have missed sugar all ready but I was expecting that. I am just hoping and praying I don’t get a migraine later this week as I did the last time I tried to cut sugar out.
Has anyone done the Whole 30 and how did you get on?
What was the hardest thing you have ever cut out?
