2014 New Year, New Whole30 – Day 26

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 Better butter Brussels sprouts, 2 eggs, 1/4 avocado

10:30 (post-workout) Turkey on the run

3:00 Paleo cookies

6:00 Roast chicken, carrots and turnips, 1 cookie

Food It snowed today and I always bake cookies for my son when it does. It’s a tradition. I didn’t make a giant batch and yes, I could have skipped tasting them, but I didn’t. And I made them with almond flour and honey. Honey is a no-no. And cookies are SWYPO – a total no-no. Is my Whole30 a failure? Maybe.

Mood Good! Happy! But I suppose a bit conflicted about my choices.

Sleep 7 hours. I feel rested.

Activity Chest and arms today. Fun!

Focus Didn’t set the time aside today and I should have.
