2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 25

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 Collards, 3 eggs, salsa, 1/4 avocado, salsa

10:30 (post-workout) Chicken soup

12:30 Salad with salmon, veggies, avocado, lemon dressing

3:00 Sweet potato, HB egg

6:00 Lebanese meatballs, Cauliflower rice

Food Wow. Better. Yesterday was just crazy-insane. I don’t know what got into me; maybe just old habits taking over. The mind is a powerful thing and it may have been working very hard to return to what has been the status quo. I am trying to change that and sometimes it is hard work!

Mood Feeling brighter by the day.

Sleep 7.5. A solid sleep!

Activity Filthy Fifty WOD followed by a dog walk. Good stuff!

Focus 20 minutes of yoga in the afternoon.
