Well, school started again so I have had less time to post. Also less time to think about cheating!
It’s been kind of a rough week, but I think I have turned a corner. I had headaches for the first three days this week, I think just nerves about going back to school and learning to tolerate longer days. Possibly some sort of diet phenomenon too. As a result, I did not complete my running challenge. I would say I ran only 3 of the planned 7. Oops. Part of that was because I went to the gym twice with a friend intending to run, but we ended up doing other things. I did go to kickboxing twice.
I have a huge confession to make. I weighed myself. And I’m up about 3-4 pounds. I have weighed myself a few times, actually, and my weight has varied but it is definitely not down or equal to my starting weight. As a result, I am going to try and schedule in 2 fast days this coming week. Probably one on Saturday (tomorrow) and one next Tuesday. Right now it does not feel as restrictive to fast since I feel like I have discovered a wide array of food choices and do not feel limited. I have done low carb diets before and was never really able to get below 142 on them (I am at 139 right now…) so I suspected this could happen without fasting.
You may argue that it’s too soon to tell. While I am technically day 15, I had four days just before day 1 where I was compliant and just had a slip up on day 4. So I think I am far enough into this thing to be a little freaked out about some weight gain.
Anyone else gain weight on the Whole 30?
