Whole45@45 – Day 8

living is joyI still keep feeling really hungry at lunch and through the afternoon. I’m not sure what that’s about. I’ve been eating fruit (maybe it’s the sugar?) and other things but I’m wondering if I just need to work through it. I’m not sure if those signals are actually hunger or are other habits trying to surface. Tomorrow I’m going to focus on working through some of the urges to see if it will calm the heck down.

I’m feeling pretty bloated today which could definitely still be due to the shift in eating. The Whole30 Timeline mentions that these couple days can sometimes make your pants feel tighter and cause a little distress. Just the work going on internally to adjust and hopefully it will go away in the not-too-distant-future.

So what did I eat today?

Breakfast – Eggs, spinach, avocado, kraut, plantain

Lunch – Salad with celery, roasted broccoli, chicken, onion, pickles, toasted sliced almonds, red wine vinaigrette / cherries

Snack – Raspberries, chicken, sweet potato, cashews

Dinner – Pork tenderloin / Roasted cauliflower / Cucumber-Avo salad

What did I do for exercise?

Tough shoulder workout with a few hill sprints added in and then I played tennis with my son. I think it’s important to move in ways that are not just gym workouts but that add joy to life. It was our first time and it’s a good thing that the courts were empty. We might have had to chase a few. 🙂
