It is finished!! My Whole 30! I feel great. And, I think, I look great too. Other than the little Oopsie in NYC, I rocked it. I am going to post before/after photos, but here is the breakdown of physical evidence:
Pounds of body fat lost: 6
Pounds of muscle gained: 1
That’s pretty fucking impressive. I ate myself right into the “Fitness Level” percentage on the body composition charts. That’s right–and my frequency of physical activity didn’t change one bit. The only thing that changed was what I stuffed in my face.
Some of you may be wondering if I was tired? Low energy? Fuck no–unless I wasn’t eating enough. During Whole 30, I PR’d my deadlift, back squat, front squat, and my push press.
Now, let me tell you what happened the day after my Whole 30: Pizza. And a beer. It was good, ohhhh man. It was. But, can I tell you something? It wasn’t worth it. I slept like shit that night–like a total of 3.5 hours. And I had a headache the next day. And I was bloated. And…well, let’s just say that my bathroom and I got reaquainted.
Enter Whole 9. It’s a complete lifestyle, using Whole 30 ideas, stress management, healthy habits and more. I encourage you to read up on it, because it is right in line with my goals for 2015: Nutrition, Sleep, Healthy Movement, Fun and Play, Stress Management, Socialization, Natural Environment, Personal Growth and Temperance. I am all over this shit. For real.
Stay tuned for before/after photos, more recipes and Whole 9 information!
