Whole 30: Day 6 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!


6:00 Black coffee

8:00 3 Fried eggs on collard greens with avocado-citrus cream and hot sauce, 1/4 c. butternut squash

11:30 Pina Colada Chicken on Creamy Allspice Cauliflower Rice, Casablanca Carrots

3:00 Banana, a teaspoon of coconut butter

6:30 Chicken-basil meatloaf, Zucchini noodles aglio e olio, tomatoes

8:00 Hot tea

Food A big breakfast post-workout felt great. I had another busy day ahead of me and needed to be well fueled.

Mood Mood is still good. The Whole9 website predicts fatigue and lethargy for today and tomorrow, but I think because I was not so far off from eating like this, my body was already primed to burn fat as fuel and isn’t struggling as much with the transition. We’ll see tomorrow, I guess.

Sleep 7.5 hours. A bit of a restless sleep. Normally, at some point during the Whole 30, you start sleeping like the dead. I’m looking forward to that!

Exercise Yay! Good workout done early! I love it.
