Day 1

Weight today - 129.2lbs, which is up about 3lbs from a few days ago. Lots of water-retention (I can't even tell you how much salt I've eaten in the last few days!), and probably some actual weight-gain, thanks to all my final indulgences.

Waist - 32" at smallest, 34" at navel. (Oy!)

Other notes:
-I have insane dark circles under my eyes. Surely this is thanks in part to Baby Belle who won't sleep longer than 90 minutes. I'm hoping, however, that some of it may be resolved by eliminating intolerances from my diet.

-My energy level is in the toilet lately. Of course, Baby Belle owns part of that blame as well, but I hope this helps!

-My hair is falling out at an alarming rate and in an alarming pattern. I'm still waiting on the results of some bloodwork and cultures, but several of the potential causes (low iron, low B12, low thyroid function, autoimmune disorder) could be greatly improved by doing a Whole30. I'm excited to see if my balding tapers-off over the next month! (Since I had bloodwork done yesterday, I can repeat at the end and it will be an accurate representation of what changed over the course of the Whole30.)

Food today:
Breakfast - Two fried eggs and a pile of kale, cooked in clarified butter. Two cups of coffee with coconut milk and cinnamon.
Lunch - Chicken and frozen mixed veggies, cooked in olive oil, crushed garlic and a little onion powder.
Supper - Leftovers from lunch.
Snacks - Hard boiled egg, a couple tablespoons of coconut, about 7 cashews and an apple. And water. Lots of water.

I felt really good today. I suspect the crash is coming, and the uncertainty of when it's coming might just do me in!


  1. Starting to do my homework and get a mealplan ready so when we get back from vacay I can just shop and EAT. :)

    1. You're going to rock this. You already know you have awesome will power, and you know where to find the resources you need. I can't wait to see what you think of it! :)

    1. I'm so glad you'll be blogging it! :) And I've been totally eating garbage for the past week. Part emotional eating, part knowing that my detox is coming up FAST! (Starting tomorrow!!)
