2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 10

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 Beet greens, 2 eggs, crab salad

1:30 Ham and Celery-grapefruit salad, Curried Sweet Potato Soup

6:30 Salad, 3 tuna cups

8:30 Roasted sweet potatoes

Food Tuesdays are often busy for me, especially the mornings. Today was no exception and I found myself hours later, still not having eaten. It’s a rest day for me so I didn’t have, or need to have, a post-workout snack handy. I was definitely hungry, but one of my favorite things about the Paleo lifestyle is that hunger is okay. My body feels it, but I’m not passing out from a sugar crash or even particularly upset about it. I’m hungry. I’ll eat. But I can wait if I have to. Then I had a meeting in the evening so I brought along some tuna cups to snack on. Had a few sweet potatoes when I got home and crashed.

Mood Sort of flat today. I have so much going on that I am actually appreciating the very calm mood; I think it is helping me tackle one challenge at a time.

Sleep 7.5 hours. School is back, schedule is back. Would have liked an extra 1/2 hour. I was getting used to 8 hours!

Activity Rest day.

Focus Post-workout snack: Letting my body recover for a day. I have a plan for tomorrow though.
