Whole 30: Day 25 Recap

doing whole 30 image12

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 Collard greens, mushrooms, 2 eggs, 2 slices of bacon, 1/4 avocado, salsa

12:00 Turkey Stuffing Loaf, salad, 1/4 avocado, apple with a drizzle of coconut butter

2:00 1 1/2 oz. turkey loaf, carrot with a bit of Cauliflower Hummus

6:00 Grilled ham (4 oz.), jeweled Brussels sprouts, roasted carrots and parsnips

Food All systems are back to normal. Hunger seems appropriate and I like meat again. What a strange couple of days! But I feel (again) like I overate at dinner. Not by very much at all and the feeling didn’t last into the night or anything, but I think my appetite truly is smaller and I need to adjust to it. Whoa.

Mood Feeling good today.

Sleep 7.5 – I went to bed 30 minutes earlier but still woke up after 7.5. Energy is good so I’m not going to worry about it!

Exercise Morning yoga – my brain was a little active so I needed to work at centering. Then did a pull workout at the gym but there was a bit of chatting today. Some workouts are like that and that’s totally fine! I just might need to give an extra push tomorrow.
