Days 28 – 30 of the Whole30 & Reintroduction

If I didn’t have to pull late nights this week, I imagine it would be easier. But alas, I’m done with the Whole30.

The last couple days got to be hard, but a lot of that was because of an intense daily schedule, not enough sleep and not a lot of time to prepare meals. So I ate out quite a bit. Luckily, there are a couple restaurants that are easy for me to eat at. Except I did resort to eating the veggies and chicken breast off of a Burger King grilled chicken sandwich one night, bun left untouched. That’s between you and me though… shhhh!

I was in a rush, okay?!

Onto other things…

It’s now time for me to start reintroducing foods into my diet to see how they affect me. Today I’ve been doing grains/breads/starches. They are virtually all the same food group.

First observation: I’m sticking with eggs for breakfast. Cereal in almond milk doesn’t cut it and it leaves me hungry 90 minutes later. Eggs keep me covered for 3-4 hours.

Second: I think I need to keep up mostly a Whole30 mentality and meal plan with just the addition rather than the full substitution of a meal, like with the cereal. That equals a very satisfied girl.

Third: I’m not feeling bloated per say, but I can tell my stomach feels different with grains in my system again. More of a full that doesn’t go away.

And fourth: my energy was shot to hell at 9. Don’t know if that was because of 6 hours of sleep last night or the grains… Either way, I can’t function like that.

Onto day 2 of reintroduction tomorrow!
