    Day 9: May 22nd 2011

    Forgot to make my goals.. but i decided to stop counting calories early. So no more obsessive counting for ME.

    Meal 1: apple sausage, meatball, a tiny amount of steak and chicken (Samples at Costco!). 4ish oz of chicken breast, 1/4cup macadamia nuts, 1 tbs almond butter, small amount of coconut flakes

    Meal 2: TON of hamburger meat, like three whole patties. sauteed onions (coconut oil) and fruit salad, avocado, 20ish pistachios


    Assessment: Pretty lazy day and i ate a bunch. Meal 1 & 2 blended together = grazing. meh . I'm a little dissapointed in my day but i stuck to my whole 30 at least. two days down 28 to go! Ate about 1,700 calories

            Day 12: May 25th 2011

            Meal 1: BAS with salmon

            Meal 2: guacamole,chicken breast,broccoli,pumpkin seeds, 2 eggs fried in CO,2 apples

            Exercise: 1 hour tumbling/jumping

            Assessment: Aww nuts, i ate fruit. Today i STRUGGLED to eat 1,300 calories, and the two apples were my last hope because i was so sick of veggies and meat by then and no nuts today, i still kept my carbs under 100g though…so thats good. I'm dissapointed though because i promised myself i wouldn't eat fruit, but it was dire, i was about to heat up some bacon! I don't look any skinnier but my face has cleared up a ton and i feel really good besides being tired alot (mostly from school). Only four more days of school. Have cheer tonight, i'm kinda full from Meal number 2, which took place over an hour and a half, yikes as usual. I really need to stop gorging myself to make up calories, i'm terrified of eating to much AND too little..what to do? Whenever i try and evenly space my calories out i end up binging and night. Is it awful if i eat 1000+ calories at once?

            Tomorrow is a No Fruit day.

                Day 14: May 27th 2011

                Almost a week of Whole30, it really has been easy and i feel so good. I'm allowing myself more fruit to make up for the lack of other foods right now but i've gotten out of control with consumption in my opinion so...

                Goals: No fruit today, eat under 1,500 calories, Stretch really well. only eat three meals spaced at least five hours apart

                Meal 1: (6:30am) Brussels sprouts,chicken breast, one tbs coconut oil, one clove garlic,5 pistachios, cup macadamia nuts

                Meal 2: (12pm)Chicken stir fry (chicken breast,mixed veggies,olive oil,garlic,salt,pepper)yum!

                Meal 3: (4:30) Pork Hickory seasoned back ribs, pumpkin seeds,almonds, Mrs.Mays Almond Crunch( basically clumps of sweetened almond)

                Exercise: Stretching

                Assessment: So, i didn't eat any fruit, but i ate like 1,760 calories..yikes. and my 2nd and 3rd meal where only like 4:30hours apart How did i manage to rack up my calories so high if i didn't eat fruit?? I think breakfast is the culprit. Whenever i eat a small/no breakfast my budget stays in range but if i eat 350+ calories for breakfast i eat so much the rest of the day… But WOW my ratios are awesomeeeee today!!

                Calories/Ratios/grams: ~1,750 calories Fats: 130.7g, 32,9g saturated, 64% Carbs: 55.7g,21.6g fiber, 10g sugar!, 12%Proteins: 108.9g, 24%

                      Day 9 of Whole30...this is going by slowly.

                      Meal 2: Chicken Stir Fry

                      Assessment: I ate alot considering i sat around most of the day. But i made good decisions and avoided fruit! Really good ratios on my foods even though they probably are not completely accurate...

                      Im already planning my celebratory meal after Whole 30, LOL. 21 days left.

                      Tomorrow i won't eat any fruit again. I Feel better without it,mentally

                        Day 17: May 30th 2011

                        Goals: Okay, it is day 10 on Whole 30 and i don't feel any different, i'm obviously not doing something right. So from today for the remaining 2/3 of my Whole 30 I am cutting out nuts and fruits. Except for June 13-18th (going to a three day camp). I feel like the fruits are inducing cravings...are just unecessary with all the goodness i CAN eat. And unfortunatly, i just realized my ham is cured-doh and it haas brown sugar...i'm not supposed to be eating sugar! I also don't think i want a after-whole30 binge, that would defeat the purpose, what was i thinking??

                        1. No more fruits until June 13th and after June 18th till June 21st.
                        2. Start going on daily walks
                        3. Eat Only when hungry, i've been having problems with this
                        4. NO GUM CHEWING. This has been an unecessary habit i cannot kick
                        5. Be strict on your diet. i can do this
                        6. No Sugar, unless it is naturally in my foods.
                        7. Try to wean myself of face wash ( lol but my skin doesn't need the nasty chemicals anyways)

                        Meal 1: 3 eggs( only 1 yolk), ham cooked in EVOO, broccoli roasted in olive oil

                        Meal 2: Pulled pork w/carrots and seasoning, pistachios & walnuts

                        Exercise: nothing...

                        Assessment: 1. Cured ham..): Otherwise a pretty good day

                        Calories/Ratios/Grams: ~1,350 calories Carbs: 49g,22g fiber,18g sugar, 14% Fats: 86g,15.5g saturated, 55%Proteins: 110g, 31%

                        Edit: Went crazy and had most of one hardboiled egg, coconut shavings AND a few nuts. I'm not sure that i'm more suprised this is now what i consider a binge instead of zone bars,shit ton of nuts, chocolate, etc. Or that i'm really depressed i ate it all. I was ravenous

                              I really fell off the wagon this summer so far. I binged and binged and went to camp and binged some more. I really need to get back on track. i Ate OVER 2500 yesterday and im so sick of it. I realized i really need to weigh myself and keep track of what i am doing. I look so much fatter from just ONE month, how did i do this to myself??? I gained 4 pounds in 20-ish days . Well, i'm committed to the rest of the summer, i can do this! I'm just so depressed with my body right now.
