2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 24

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.

5:00 Black coffee

6:30 Mushroom, onion, bell pepper, 3 eggs, 1/2 a small avocado

12:00 Chicken soup, 2 Salmon salad wraps, almonds & raisins

2:00 Nuts and raisins, HB egg

6:00 Pork, Brussels sprouts, Celery-Beet-Grapefruit salad

Food Ugh. Totally had a day of nuts and fruit. I just wanted to snack like crazy and I suppose the good thing is that it wasn’t a bag of chips or cookies or something. If an overdose of almonds and raisins is where I end up, I think that’s going to have to be okay.

Mood I got really tired in the mid-afternoon. Not sure what that was about. Tired and snacky.

Sleep 7 hours. I slept pretty well. I think I’m back to my normal school day sleep schedule.

Activity Much needed rest day!

Focus I found 5 minutes to sit and breath. I didn’t find a reason for the snack-craziness, but I was able to let go of it.
