Well day 1 is in the books and I think I did well. I successfully stayed on plan and my only complaint was a dull headache all day.
I know the headache was from caffeine withdrawal. Even though on the whole 30 you can have coffee ( recommended 2 cups max ideally before noon so it doesn't affect your sleep), I decided to try to quit it for good.
Not sure why I thought I had to cut down all the way to zero lol but I regretted that all day because of that headache. It finally went away around 3pm when I decided to just drink a cup. This is pretty much how I felt :
I had been having close to 4-5 cups a day plus the caffeine that coke zero had. On the bright side I already liked my coffee black so I have no issue about it lacking sweeteners or creamer.
On to Day 2: This morning I was worried about how I would feel. According to the book's timeline, day 2-5 is usually when the "hangover" hits you. I felt good today, I drank one cup of coffee and had no headache. I actually feel a bit more energized tonight and I know it ain't related to caffeine haha!
Here's the food of the day:
Breakfast: beef patty, leftover hash and a hard boiled egg white
Lunch: zucchini noodles aka zoodles with homemade marinara, chicken , a couple of radishes and a small slice of avocado
Dinner: stir fry with beef and mixed veggies ( broccoli, carrots, snow peas ) seasoned with a dash of coconut aminos.
Looking forward to a successful Day 3! Have a great weekend. Until next time, Stay focused!
