    Felt much better today and workout went well. Whole30 getting a bit tougher mentally - so many cravings.
    Julian4077, NancyTree Thank you for the well wishes. I'm sure that this all too will pass. I just hope it does so sooner rather than later.

      Last day of this routine. Progression starts after tomorrow's rest.

      Felt pretty good overall, getting stronger and all that. I think I'm ready for the next progression. I am officially halfway through!
      Really looking forward to tomorrow's run. Been feeling cooped up.
      Craving were tough today and nothing that I can eat was really hitting the spot. But I got through it and I am looking forward to the end. I want soy-glazed salmon on white rice and pancakes! Maybe not at the same time, but I miss those the most. Oh and salted dark chocolate.

          Circuit of the following exercises completed 4 times.
          1. One-leg assisted pull-up x5 (chair 1 ft in front of me)
          2. Single-leg squat x5 (90d angle)
          3. Pushups x5
          4. One-legged elevated glute bridge x10
          5. Plank 30s
          I felt so strong today! I didn't have any trouble with my pull-ups, and I did 5 regular, full-on pushups in a row each round! My goal for the end of this 8-week journey is 10 in a row. Halfway there!
          Plank was easy in the first round, but very hard by the fourth.


          I was pretty damn worried about this progression. The last few workouts have been so hard for me that I didn't think I could really do the increased difficulty. But I did! And for the first time in a long time, I actually feel strong. Halfway through and enjoying it.
          Whole30 is also easier today, no more cravings. I hope it stays that way! 1 week down, 3 to go.

              Changed to Bulgarian Split Squats bc my balance is very poor and it’s making my form bad as well. I’m feeling some pain with pistols now and my research seems to find this a better replacement.

              Didn’t sleep well. Exhausted today. Whole30 sucked. I just wanted a big bowl of Mac n’ Cheese. Cravings are usually worse when I’m tired, so that’s probably all it is. Big dinner, early bed.

                Awful workout. No energy for it and it took forever bc I needed so much rest.

                Okay. I dunno if I can keep going Whole30. I'm this close to just ditching it. The only thing that kept me going yesterday was saying I could do one more day, but that's not really working right now. For the second day I feel incredibly dizzy and my energy levels are super low. I originally did this bc ditching grains and sugar seemed to help with the same med withdrawals, but I do not think it is helping me atm.

                Can't really tell if the Whole30 is the problem or if I'm just really grumpy. Last time I did a Whole30, it wasn't this hard and I didn't have these issues. Aside from the dizziness, my appetite is way down, but I know I need enough calories for good workouts so I just have to eat and that's uncomfortable. Getting enough fats is hard since I normally get that from dairy. My stomach also has this weird hollow feeling all the time? Not hungry really, but just... hollow. Hubs thinks it's too much and I should stop.

                SIGH
                It's a bad time today.


                Update: 2000 same night - whole30 over. I just couldn't take it. I made a healthy Beef Tinaktak dinner, which contained soy sauce, and had a cup of rice with it. I researched it more and I just don't feel like I need it - plus I was obviously miserable. Most importantly, doesn't seem to be supporting my workouts well. Still eating healthy and doing my challenges. 5 days to go on those. Onward!

                  If it doesn't feel good, you should stop indeed. Feeling dizzy and having no energy doesn't sound good fysically, so don't be dissapointed in yourself, taking carelistening to those signs is important. Maybe it was a too abrupt change, maybe you can make changes gradually?

                    Not all food modifications are for everyone at any stage of life, either. Just because it worked and fit you before, doesn’t mean it would do the same for you, now. You’re in a different space in time of your life. Good job listening to your body and keeping your head together about it🥳👍🏼

                      I did so well! I ran in the sunlight today instead of night and still just kept running. I had so much fun. I have missed running!

                          Felt nice and strong today. Even did all my pushups in one go, as well as planks. Feeling good.

                          Had a great day. Feeling much better. Since today's Intermittent Fasting was completely by accident ( I just wasn't hungry at all until later) I'm going to start slowly moving back into that 16:08 routine.
                          Also got myself some common sense eating rules to follow with out going crazy. As always, those things don't apply during weekend, so will start on Monday. Pretty much how I used to eat but making sure to get the protein and veggies I need at every meal. Everything going toward good exercise outcomes. I'm getting stronger and I don't wanna do anything to jeopardize my workouts.

                                Workout was excellent this morning. Feeling good, and doing pushups all in one go. Was looking forward to a run tonight as well, but got home past 20 and I'm oddly very tired already. Ah well. Will just run again on my next off day.
                                Thanks bekbee I hope it was the right call.
                                Thanks DorothyMH It reminds me of a nicer summer, when fairs and friends were more the norm.
