If I had started my Whole30 on Monday, this would be Day 5 and that’s exactly how I feel. I’m totally exhausted and want some chocolate. Bad. Not sure where all that has come from and I sure hope it takes off soon. I’m so, so tired. I took a nap and still don’t feel awake. I have to take my son to football practice this evening and then I imagine I’ll come home and crash. Sounds like a fine Friday night plan to me. I’m such a party animal…
On top of being tired and craving chocolate, I’ve also been hungry. I did have a pretty tough workout this morning so it could just be that I wasn’t able to fuel that properly. Fridays are another of my strange days due to my work schedule so I’ll need to make a better plan for the upcoming weeks.
I’m glad that I’m still feeling committed to this challenge because otherwise it would be a wine and cheese kind of night. But that’s okay. It’s probably good for my brain to have to work through a tough day or two so I remind myself that these are JUST CRAVINGS. They are not actually in control. I still get to choose.
What did I eat today?
Breakfast – 2 eggs with zucchini in leftover curry sauce from last night.
Pre-workout snack – 1/2 an Rx Bar
Post-workout snack/Pre-yoga – 1/2 an Rx Bar
Lunch – Tuna salad with tons of celery, pickles, grapes, mayo, 1/4 avo / Plum / A few bites of curry chicken
Snack – Nuts and dried fruit
Dinner – Curry chicken / Smoothie
Snack – Nuts and fruit
This little trailmix thing I have going on is about to end. I love it and it’s really hard for me to just have a little bit. It’s such an easy snack to take with me, but I know I go overboard and I think I might be using the dried fruit as a sugar crutch. Time to let it go and set myself up with some actual protein and veggies for my snacks.
How did I move today?
Tough chest workout followed by yoga.

Thank you so much for this! I came off the weekend feeling like hell from back to back parties and generally eating really badly. Your review of your day’s eating has motivated me to stay on track today with my promise to eat well. 🙂
I’m so glad, Donna! I know just how easy it can be to get off track. I love that you are dusting off the crumbs and getting right back to it. You’ve got this!
