2014 New Year, New Whole 30 – Day 7

Whole30 2014For the next 30+ days, I will be eating meat, vegetables, healthy fats, fruits and nuts. I will not be eating processed food, sugar, dairy, grains or legumes, and I won’t be consuming any alcohol.

This is not my first Whole30, but this time I want to focus on a couple of specific elements: 1) fewer nuts as snacks and 2) fewer snacks in general. I would like to find the right mix of meals and pre-/post-workout fuel to keep me steady throughout the day.

If you’re doing a Whole30 or other challenge, if you are living/exploring the Paleo lifestyle, or if you are simply looking for some tasty recipes to add to your repertoire, be sure to leave a comment to let me know you’re out there! I am so glad you stopped by!


This week’s focus: Drink lots of water or tea.

5:00 Black coffee

7:30 Paleo creamed spinach, 3 eggs

11:30 Crab hand rolls, 1/2 purple sweet potato with ghee

2:00 Handful of almonds, tea

4:00 Hazelnuts, cucumbers, carrot sticks

6:00 Pan fried chicken, Brussels sprouts, roasted carrots

Food I was so hungry today. I think it was because I was light on protein yesterday, didn’t have a post-workout meal, and then also had a fairly protein-light lunch. I need to fix that tomorrow because I ended up overeating in the late afternoon and at dinner. Nuts with friends while sipping tea, great. Nuts that were supposed to be in the dinner, not so much.

Mood My mood is a bit quieter today. There are a lot of things on my mind and I don’t feel as upbeat as I have. Pensive is okay though.

Sleep 8 hours. I got to bed early last night and woke up at my normal time without an alarm clock. I don’t feel fully caught up yet and also noticed that I haven’t been covering my clock like I did last time. That little light is most probably disrupting my sleep.

Activity 2 mile jog-walk with my dog and my son. Then yoga. 🙂

Focus Lots of water – all good.
