2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 17

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

6:30 Kale, 3 eggs, 1/4 avocado

11:00 Pre-workout Chicken stew and cauliflower mash (small serving)

1:00 Post-workout Beef roll-up

Food I officially changed jobs today and, as sometimes it goes, the process was not perfectly smooth. My eating reflects that. I simply didn’t today, which is VERY unlike me. I have always wondered how people can be “too stressed to eat.” Really??? Seems crazy. But then it happened. I don’t know what it means, I just know I’m really looking forward to breakfast!

Mood My mood was governed by the change in my life. Some excitement, some trepidation. We’ll see what happens as things evolve!

Sleep 6.5 hours – I read a bit past my normal bedtime but I woke up just before the alarm and feel alert.

Activity Legs and back today. I felt pretty strong throughout but had a rather distracted workout. I feel like I need some hard cardio soon.

Focus Yes! I packed my roll-ups and they really seem to work great. Unfortunately, I’m out of the beef so I am going to hard boil some eggs for the next few days.
