Whole 30: Day 3 Recap


I’m doing a Whole 30 for a couple of reasons: 1) I want to feel great from the inside out, 2) Putting some stricter guidelines around my food choices keeps me from getting distracted by things that might otherwise tempt me, and 3) Sometimes it takes a while to reap the benefits of a change and having a timeline provides the structure and encouragement I need when I begin to feel impatient.

I plan to share what I eat each day to help me accurately judge what my body needs and to, hopefully, provide a little inspiration or planning assistance if you’re trying to figure out your day as well. If you have questions about anything, please leave me a comment.

Everyone is different, so I hope you don’t judge me too harshly by what I eat. And maybe you’ll see something that resonates with you and, in that case, excellent! If not, I’ll be posting different recipes on the blog too, so don’t despair!

Here’s to the journey!


4:45 Black coffee

6:30 Berebere collard greens with sweet potato and eggs

11:00 (pre-wo) 1/2 c. Brussels sprouts with HB egg and hazelnuts

1:45 Sesame cucumber noodles with chicken, bell pepper and avocado, 1/4 c. butternut squash noodles

Sesame Cuc Noodles WF 2013

2:30 Black decaf.

7:15 Semi Sabich and Casablanca Carrots from WellFed2

Food Better workout snack today made for a more stable and consistent day. It seems easy. Dare I say that?

Mood I still feel really good. In fact, it’s comforting to know that even though I was not eating according to my goals for a while (ie. cocktail hour and ice cream), I didn’t revert back so far that I got hit with significant carb-flu. I have had a few moments where a headache threatened, but it hasn’t been bad at all.

Sleep 6.5 hours. Where are you weekend? Enough said.

Exercise Yoga in the morning. Dog walk. Strength workout (pull) at the gym. I feel lucky today!

Day 4 and 5 are rumored to make you want to punch things in the face. I say, “Bring it!” But I might regret that…

  1. So grateful for this! Love following along– keeps me inspired as I tweak my own diet and provides a sense of solidarity. Plus, yeah– seems totally doable and love your tips, tricks and pics! Best part of eating (close) to this way is that I don’t freak out when I have more space than ideal between meals. I realize I’m not actually dying of hunger and feel rather sane and stable. Must be a blood sugar thing, and higher quality gas in the tank. Had some gluten-free, wheat-free toast yesterday…not exactly paleo, right? Not to mention the wine. I wonder how early humans made alcohol out of anything they could get there hands on… I’m sure its got to be a long time ago, right? (Maybe?) (Please? 🙂 hehehe). Anyway, thanks, Hero! Keep it UP!

    And yeah, another good phrase is productive procrastination. There’s a whole book on procrastination written by an author which is hilarious and so wise. Check this site out: http://www.structuredprocrastination.com/ I think it goes really nicely in support of lifestyle tweaks!

  2. Wish I was doing this Whole 30 with you…I know I’d feel optimal right now if I were. As it is, I’m barely even making dinner. Appreciate having this, though because when I’m ready, I will have a guide. Keep at it!
