Whole 30: Day 10 Recap

Whole9

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!

Food Going longer stretches without food is getting increasingly comfortable. I often get this way with paleo as my body shifts away from needing constant fueling from carbs and burns what it’s got (fat). While I’m not a huge proponent of intermittent fasting, it is a relief to know that I can go a few hours.

Mood Mostly just feeling proud about now. 10 days – yay!

Sleep 6.5 hours. Went out with some friends Tuesday night and stayed up past my bedtime. 🙂

Exercise Great pull day at the gym. Went heavy, which felt good, but I ran out of time for legs. Guess what will be in tomorrow’s workout?
