2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 13

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 Curry zoodles, 2 eggs, roasted eggplant

2:00 Ham and sautéed purple cabbage, banana

6:30 Steak and salad

8:00 Almonds and raisins

Food I am still working through a bunch of cravings. I think it is a desire to handle life’s curveballs the way that I have in the past – with a lovely glass of wine and too much food. Instead, I waited it out and then, when I wanted wine, I had my bubbly water. I decided I would just start there. It worked. And while I am still trying to limit nuts as a snack, the almonds and raisins helped keep any other cravings at bay so I’m okay with them. Small steps.

Mood There is some change happening in my life and I am not always one who changes with ease. I’m a bit down right now, but there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Sleep 5 1/2 hours. Restless night. Tired day.

Activity Missed my workout but sometimes that happens.

Focus Didn’t have a post-workout snack for obvious reasons.
