Eating good, feeling better

So its almost been a week, yea I know that isn't very long. Yesterday I felt great at breakfast after my usual grapefruit, banana and coffee.  I also had an apple and some cashews along with that.  I sometimes have an extra banana, sometimes an apple or orange.  I've been able to put in workouts for the last few days in our home gym.  We do crossfit styled workouts and follow a couple popular boxes to find wods or just write our own.

Whole30 Exercise Plan

So my plan to eat nothing but raw foods for the first 2 weeks of my whole30 is going just about as planned.  I am doing mostly salads for lunch and dinner, and I am doing as planned with 1/2 portion of meat at lunch and a full portion for dinner.  My breakfasts have been 2 bananas and 1/2 grapefruit generally.  I have been eating 1/2 a chicken thigh or ground beef with my  salads for lunch and dinner,   I have been pretty satisfied now that I am getting accustomed to it.  The first day was rough since I tried only having 1 banana for breakfast and didn't add meat to the salad.  My calorie intake was a bit low and I was hungry.  I ended up eating a couple handfulls of raisins which I needed but I'd rather not since that's a large amount of sugar.
