2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 9

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 Roasted Brussels sprouts, 2 eggs

10:30 Pre-workout Spicy Tuna cup

12:00 Post-workout/lunch Spicy Pepper Meat Sauce, Vibrantly Red Salad, Curried Sweet Potato Soup

4:00 Ham

8:30 Vibrantly Red Salad, ham

Food I went to the freezer for lunch today. I am so glad to have things like meat sauce and soup frozen for days when I have other things to do. I had a nice, hearty lunch because I knew dinner would be late. I was satisfied all day long.

Mood Feeling on a very even keel today. Nothing spectacular, just steady.

Sleep 8 hours. Covered the light, crashed early, and slept well. That’s two days in a row like that.

Activity Fun and challenging workout today. Good stuff!

Focus Post-workout snack: Combined it with lunch because the timing worked great.
