2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 8

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: Post-workout nutrition.

5:00 Black coffee

7:30 Collard greens, 2 eggs, salsa, 1/4 avocado

10:30 Pre-workout Spicy Tuna cup

12:30 Tandoori turkey meatloaf, Brussels sprouts with curry sauce, couple of cooked carrots

1:15 Tuna cup, banana

6:30 Patty, gravy, broccoli-bell pepper salad, orange

Food Worked out this morning and then afternoon plans changed. I didn’t have a snack with me and I was starving at lunch. So I ate. Took a short break. Was still hungry, so I ate again.

Mood Feeling much better today. I can actually feel my mood lifting. Amazing.

Sleep 8 hours. Covered the light, crashed early, and slept well.

Activity Back and legs. Great workout. Then yoga – yes.

Focus Post-workout snack: Totally missed the boat today. I have to be prepared for those times when things change on the fly. I was not too far outside the window (ate about 45 minutes after working out), but I ended up running to the store before going home and I was really hungry.
