Whole 30: Day 26 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!


4:30 Black coffee

6:00 Cabbage, 1 1/2 oz. ham, 2 eggs, 1/4 avocado, slice of orange

12:00 Beef stew on marrow sweet potato, a few jeweled brussies

3:00 1 1/2 oz. turkey loaf, strawberries, carrot with cauliflower hummus

6:00 A few macadamia nuts, Cincinnati chili on zucchini noodles, broccoli-bell pepper salad, date

Food I was hungry after a cardio-intense workout but felt satisfied after some sweet potato at lunch. I still needed a snack mid-afternoon, which was fine, and kept me from being famished at dinner. We had friends over and it felt easy to eat this way. I would have enjoyed a glass of wine, but it wasn’t necessary. My bubbly water did the trick. And a single date for dessert!

Mood Busy and content.

Sleep 7 – Wishing I’d had just a few minutes more but it wasn’t in the cards today.

Exercise Tough workout at the gym but lots of fun. I’m sore already! A quick bit of yoga in the afternoon to realign a few things.
