Whole45@45 – Day 12


Sometimes there are days where nothing dramatic happens. I suppose most days are like that, really, but sometimes I have something on my mind that I want to share. Today is not that day. I guess I wish that I had taken a picture of the cauliflower rice that I had for dinner because it was really tasty and just what I was in the mood for. I think I will fine tune it this weekend and post it because it was something simple to throw together at the last minute.

Still hanging in there, not feeling particularly great and not really sure why. The interesting thing is that I’ve done several Whole30s, I’ve spent more days than not in the past five years eating mostly Paleo, but this time for some reason things are not clicking along the way I’d expect. I still believe that in time I will feel better because I know that eating whole, nutrient dense foods will undoubtedly increase my health, but there might be some tweaking I need to do. Or maybe there are some completely different factors that are at play. In any case, I will keep moving forward.

What did I eat today?

Breakfast – No surprise here… 2 eggs, zucchini, sauerkraut, 1/4 avocado

Post-workout lunch – Spinach salad with grilled pork tenderloin, HB egg, broccoli, cucumber, onion, almonds, vinaigrette / Cherries

Snack – Grilled chicken / Cauliflower / Banana with almond butter

Dinner – A couple bites of chicken, maybe an ounce? / Riced cauliflower with tomatoes, ghee and olive oil

I had a big snack this afternoon so I wasn’t very hungry for dinner. On Fridays I eat breakfast around 6:30 and then didn’t have lunch until 1:00 so I think my hunger was out of whack. Plus no starchy carbs, which was why I was hungry for the banana. Still working on the rhythm.

How did I move today?

HIIT this morning. Then I had a chest day planned but only did a little bit of it. A friend I don’t see very often showed up and we got to chatting. Apparently the Universe thought I needed a break and sometimes connecting with people is more important than pushing yourself in the gym. It’s about balance.

Oh! And yoga!

Shine bright. xo
