Tub on the Run

Whole 30 Day 1 Down


I have absolutely no intention of posting daily about this.  I think my recent attempt at Juneathon has proved that I am not really cut out for blogging each day.  However, in the interests of monitoring progress, I think it would be good to share where I am today.  I’ve taken my measurements and my weight and taken a couple of photos of my skin.  And here I am, in all my lycra clad, spotty glory!

Tub on the Run Whole 30 Day 1

My skin actually isn’t too bad at the moment, but I have a couple of bad spots along my jawline that are quite painful.  I also have some residual dandruff from a severe bout of stress a few weeks ago.

Day one didn’t really get off to the best start.  I was a bit unprepared, but managed to cobble something together quickly.  While it was adequate, it wasn’t exactly inspiring.  We stopped at Tesco this evening to pick up a couple of things to tide us over until the weekend when I can cook properly with a bit more thought and inspiration.

In terms of how I have felt, I’ve had a stinking headache most of the day.  I am unsure whether it is a withdrawal from sugar that is the problem, or whether it is tight shoulders that are radiating up my neck.  I’ve spent quite a large part of the week so far hunched over my desk.  It does seem a bit early to be suffering from any sugar withdrawal issues.

Tomorrow looks to be a better day for food.  I have prepared breakfast (kind of), lunch and dinner, and have the following day’s meals planned too.

  1. Brave. Well done.
    I wish you health and PBs

  2. I wish I read this book when I was losing my weight. John Gabriel does a great job teach you how to have a kind conversation with yourself. I needed this a lot, because the key to losing weight is not plowing through it, but enjoying the journey. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1582702187/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1582702187&linkCode=as2&tag=stevwadd-20&linkId=47FW6RHZNWAUN5TV

    Best of luck to you on your journey!

    • Thank you for the recommendation. I will take a look at it! It always seems more popular to have stern words with yourself, so this might be quite refreshing!

      Thank you 🙂

  3. Ahhhh when first cutting sugar expect to feel horrible for a few day’s, I know it varies from person to person but I had a terrible headache and was even sick on day 3 (!) then..suddenly BOOM! I felt really rather good…You can do this Steph! 🙂

    • Thanks for the heads up Katie! I had a headache yesterday, and while I have had one today, it hasn’t lasted the whole day. I have been trying to drink plenty to help it out though.

      I definitely want to try the egg muffins you posted on instagram yesterday! They look amazing 🙂

  4. Good luck Steph 🙂 ! I look forward to hearing more about your whole 30 journey, lots of people are doing it at the moment and only have positive things to say after the initial slump!
