Happy “almost” day 30 everyone! We had our post- WOD today with weigh in. We did a WOD before we started the Whole30 so we could re-test ourselves after.
The WOD was:
3 Rounds for Time
Run 200 meters
10 Push Ups
20 Sit Ups
My time when I did it before the Whole30 was 9:49 and today after the Whole 30 it was 8:34. I got my measurements retaken (thank you Angela) and I lost pretty much an inch everywhere. I weighed 152 before I started and today I weigh 147, down 6 pounds.
This was my third time doing the Whole30. This one was very different than the other two. I have a new job and my commute is pretty brutal so I never got the “lots of energy” feeling like the last two times. I was also diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis during this, which explains a lot but also effected my sleep and daily routines. It takes me a lot longer in the morning to get ready. But the biggest change was CrossFit. During the 1st two times I did it, I was going to CrossFit 4 times a week, during this last one, I went a total of 4 times the entire MONTH!! But what that does show is that food is a HUGE factor in a healthy lifestyle and the Whole30 has kept me healthy (as healthy as can be). I do miss CrossFit but I’ll get back to it as soon as I can.
At the end of the day it was a success. I am excited to have an adult beverage and have a little more convenience when out. I leave for vacation in 3 days and I can’t wait. We are going to try and eat as clean as possible but I do look forward to enjoying some non-Whole30 foods.
Here are my before and after pictures during my Whole30 journey.
The pictures on the left are the BEFORE and the pictures on the right are AFTER
My 1st time was August 2012
My 2nd time was January 2013
My 3rd time was September 2013
Since I started the Whole30 I’ve lost 40 lbs and a lot of inches and I feel the best I have ever felt. So if you’re reading this and you are wanting to take control of your life nows the time. You are responsible for your health and there is no better time than now to start.
Well, that’s it for now … keep up the GOOD FOOD WORD!! Until next time ….
