Whole 30: Day 8 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!


5:00 Black coffee

6:30 Italian scramble with 1/4 avocado

11:00 Pre-workout snack – 1 HB egg, 2 T. sweet potato, 2 tsp. paleo mayo

1:30 Salad with tahini dressing, gyoza meatballs, pear

3:00 Black decaf. and a banana

8:00 Paleo shepard’s pie and 1/4 of a sweet potato

Food I am not sure if I am clearly tapping in to my hunger yet or not. I eat something and wonder, “Was that too much? Should I have done a different combo? I still feel hungry – should I eat more?” It is a challenge for me to figure out when I am done eating. I love food – a lot – and loving the taste is important to me. But because it’s good, sometimes I struggle to know if I’m done.

Mood Monday. Kinda good and kinda hard.

Sleep 7.5 hours. Good sleep today.

Exercise Morning yoga – shorter than usual, but 20 minutes is enough to center myself. Push workout today and I was still sore from yesterday. But you know what? I totally did it and that makes me feel good.
