Whole30 Day 5
Friday, May 31, 2013
I think I'm turning a corner. I had a slight headache in the morning but i took some tylenol and it never came back the rest of the day.
I went to the Y and did an interval strength training class with my friend. It was pretty killer considering I've barely worked out in like... i dont even know how long. I'm expecting to be very sore tomorrow and sunday. But it felt good to get a good work out in. Even though I could barely do a lot of it. My stamina is way down. In the car on the way home I thought I was feeling an energy surge coming on but it was just my imagination. As soon as i got in the house and started making lunch, i felt lethargic and sluggish.
I didn't eat a good post work out meal either but i felt tired before that so that wasn't my problem. I think i have it figured out now so next time should be better.
I still dont feel like im on top of meals in general. I got hungry after lunch but maybe it was thrown off by the workout. i dont know. I try to eat until i feel full. I dont know if i should be having starchy carbs at each meal or 2 meals or what. There's a template to follow but i struggle with thinking about it the same way i struggle with counting calories. my brain just over complicates everything. so im using it as a guide but no idea if im sticking to it well enough.
I noticed in the mirror this morning i look a bit slimmer. Maybe its just that the bloat is going down now. i was really tempted to weigh myself but i resisted. i know im not going to like it whatever it is because its definitely not below 159. I may even hold off and go longer than 30 days. Who knows. I dont want to get ahead of myself.
I still hit an afternoon slump and wanted to nap but then i had a hard time sleeping when i laid down. I'm not really sure if its a physical tiredness or just something psychological that makes me think i need to.
My skin is still kinda broken out too.
Breakfast : 3 eggs scrambled with coconut milk and spinach and zucchini sauteed in ghee on 2 plantain tostadas with avocado spread
lunch: turkey burger with avocado spread on it and a small handful of sweet potato fries and a side salad
snack: banana and almond butter
snack hard boiled egg
dinner: hamburger (made with onion, garlic, almond meal and egg) with avocado spread, side salad and sweet potato chips (made with coconut oil)
I'm distracted cuz we're watching the Hobbit so if it doesnt make sense, I'll fix it tomorrow.
