Whole 30: Day 7 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 Kale, 2 eggs, avocado-citrus cream

11:00 Post workout snack – a few bites of Mexican Pork and Pepper Stew and a hard boiled egg

1:00 Brisket, roasted carrots, Celery Salad with Grapes and Walnuts

6:30 Buffalo Shrimp and Spaghetti Squash

8:00 A few pumpkin seeds because we carved pumpkins, of course!

Food Eating with friends can be a real challenge while on the Whole 30 but since they knew what I was doing, they weren’t bothered that I brought my own sides – especially since I brought some to share. The days keep getting easier food-wise. Love that.

Mood Feeling great except for an occasional little headache. I don’t get them very often so I’m wondering what’s causing them. I’m not going to worry too much but I’m wondering if it’s a caffeine thing or not getting enough sleep. But other than that, my mood is definitely pretty good.

Sleep 7 hours. So much for lots of sleep on the weekend. I’m planning to cover the light on my clock tonight. I think it might be disturbing my sleep.

Exercise Great workout with friends and family today – CrossFit style. Done!
