2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 18

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, salsa

10:00 Pre-workout 1 Tuna cups

2:30 Salad and 2 tuna cups

7:30 Beef stew, tomato/cucumber salad

Food These are the good days of the Whole30. Food is important for its energy, its nutrients, and its deliciousness. It is not so important for the mood.

Mood I changed jobs and while the entire process was stressful, I feel excited for the future now so maybe I’ll sleep!

Sleep 3 1/2. Yup! That’s it. But I’ve had energy all day. There’s something to be said for adrenaline.

Activity I was checking out some new equipment at the gym and I didn’t have time to do a full workout, but I can feel a few things got some use!

Focus I made tuna cups. Thai green curry ones and they’re tasty! Worked like a charm pre-workout too.
