Days 9-15, The Half 30 and Kayla Itsine's BBG

10:14:00 PM

 The Whole 30 has officially become the Half 30.   After days 9 - 15 my stomach was still feeling awful, like intense pain every day, so I called off the Whole 30 on Day 15. 

What did I eat days 9 - 15?  Blueberries, Ground Turkey Tacos in Lettuce Wraps, Apple, Banana, Spinach, Dried Cranberries, Brocolli, Pineapple, Plums, Cabbage, Cucumber, Sugar Snap Peas, Canteloupe, Scrambled Eggs, and Plums. 

Did I lose weight?  None!  I was the exact same weight to the decimal as before I began the Whole 30.  I think this was because of all of the meat I wasn't used to eating.

What was the first thing I ate when I went off the Whole 30?  A Rice Krispy Bar.  You betcha.

What were my workouts?
Tuesday: 4 mile walk since it was LISS day (Low Intensity Steady State).
Wednesday: 30 minutes of Kayla Itsine's Arms & Abs (Weighted Squat Clean & Press, Tricep Dips, Commandos, Straight Leg Jackknife, Sit Ups, Mountain Climbers, Push Ups, Leg Raises, Lay Down Push Ups).
Thursday:  LISS day so a 10 mile walk!  Did I really just do that?
Friday: 4 mile power walk
Saturday: 9 mile walk
Sunday: 8.5 mile walk

What's next for the health & fitness initiative?
I'm not totally going rogue.  I will continue to do the Kayla Itsine's Bikini Body Guide.  I love it and I'm already seeing results in my arms.  This week, Monday through Wednesday, I will do the Dr. Oz 3-day cleanse to get me back on track after my sweets this weekend.  After my Dr. Oz cleanse-reset I will follow the Kayla Itsine's Bikini Body Guide Food Plan.  This plan doesn't count out entire food groups, like carbs and dairy, unlike Whole 30.  I think it will be a much better, less shocking-to-the-system plan, that I can stick to.  

What have I learned so far?

1.   My body adjusts much more quickly to strenuous workout plans than it does to aggressive changes in my diet.  
2. I walk a lot.
3.  My mood is much more stable when I don't eat candy and sweets.
4. Meat is expensive!
5. Whole 30 is not for everyone.  And that's okay.

Curious about this Dr. Oz 3 day reset cleanse?

See below.  I've done this 3 times now and every time I feel amazing from Day 2 onwards.  I'd highly recommend this as a reset button.
