Whole30 Book

Is under the candy dish really the best place to keep this book?

I’m happy to report my mood has lightened a bit from yesterday. I was able to interact with several people today and not only was I nice, but I was able to form complete sentences. I noticed a few other positive changes today too (in Whole30 forums they called those “non-scale victories” or NSV). First, I’m not feeling as hungry in between meals. I’ve found a better timing to when I’m eating and I think that’s helped: breakfast is around 8:30am, lunch at 1pm, dinner at 6pm. Even with a workout in between breakfast and lunch today, I wasn’t ravenous like I would often be way back in 2017. Second, it seems my skin tone has evened out a tiny bit. That’s really encouraging because the prospect of better skin was one of my reasons for doing Whole30. And the last one I can’t really write/talk about because I’m a lady, but let’s just say I’m spending less time in the shitter.

My workout was good today. I decided to go a little bit lighter on some of my weights, based on how I was feeling earlier in the week. I’m glad I did. We had quite a bit of rowing in today’s WOD and toward the end I really felt out of gas. Otherwise though, my body is feeling good. Despite not sleeping well last night again, thanks in part to a 6-year-old who likes to share my pillow, I wasn’t sore or stiff this morning. And it’s been awhile since I’ve made it to the gym 5 days in a row.

For breakfast, I quickly made some scrambled eggs with spinach, onions and peppers. I had a banana with almond butter (see pic below) which I think was a nice bit of extra fuel.

Lunch was another “easy” meal of a simple green salad with spinach, veggies, avocado, and tuna fish.

For dinner I tried a new recipe recommended by someone on a Whole30 group page on Facebook. It was mini meatloaves made in muffin tins and it turned out great. I have 3 servings for leftovers to boot. I served it with sweet potatoes and asparagus with some chipotle mayo on the side.

Bananas and Almond Butter

What I like about this photo is that you can see the exact moment I gave up trying to spread the almond butter on the banana slices. #skillz

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read my little ol’ blog- and to those of you who have commented (in person and online) and offered up encouragement!
