2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 22

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: Daily yoga or meditation. I need to find my calm center again and I have let my regular practice slide. I’ve decided that if I don’t have enough time for yoga, I do have 5 minutes to sit calmly and breath.

6:20 Black coffee

8:30 Dilly green beans with 2 eggs

11:30 Tuna cup, tuna salad, veggie sticks

1:00 Apple, handful of almonds and raisins

3:00 Guacamole and veggies

6:30 Baked salmon with mushroom-asparagus cream sauce

Food My food was a bit all over the place today. Between workout, soccer, football, friends, it simply had no regularity to it. Some things were a bit snacky, but I stuck to healthy food and feel good.

Mood Feeling good. I have a lot to do this week and I’m hoping for a bunch of energy to get it done.

Sleep 9 hours! Nearly 9 1/2. That’s what happens when you collapse really early and let yourself sleep in. My body and mind say thank you!!

Activity Tabata workout today: Biceps, Tricep dips, Reverse lunge with jump, Jump pull-ups, Medball cleans. So much fun.

Focus Spent a few minutes before heading to bed sitting and breathing. I am still missing the time for yoga and will find a way back to that this week.
