Day 30: FINAL DAY OF EXPERIMENT
Well I did what I set out to do. Try to eat right and work out for 30 days and get ready for an attempt at the next level: Crossfit
Breakfast: 2 Hard boiled eggs, black coffee over ice
Lunch: Spaghetti Squash with meat sauce
Dinner: Chicken salad with compliant mayo and grapes, banana
Water intake: 80 oz
Activity: Couch to 5K app Week 5 day 3
Mindfullness: Calm App Day 4
Summary: I weighed in this morning at 305 lbs. I did not reach my goal of 300 lbs or less, but overall I am happy to have lost 15 pounds on this Whole30/Exercise experiment. I still don’t think I will begin Crossfit until I am under 300 lbs, but I also think it will be much easier to start Crossfit after some of my work and school projects are completed come June. I am sure I will be under my self imposed weight of 300 lbs, and I hope to continue with the Couch to 5K app training and complete the last 3 weeks for once. Who knows, maybe I will even run a 5K this year. I have never done that before, and we will see what shape I am in. There were some ups and downs, as expected, and I am glad I documented it for 30 straight days.
I am going to continue to blog (especially about health, and wellness, and injury prevention, and my journey to Crossfit) but I am turning this experiment into a a one time 30 day blog that can be found in my Monday: Health and Wellness Promotion Blog. I am still going to try to blog daily during the weekdays, but each day is going to be relatively different topics. One of the main reasons I got back into this blog gig is to return to my English Major at WFU Roots and get back to writing.
