Whole 30 – Day 4

image

 

 

Well, we’re coming to the end of Day 4 of my Whole 30, and to be honest, I’m glad this day is almost over.

food-wise, today was rough.  Nothing sounded good to me, and everything I couldn’t have sounded great to me.  Not a good combination, let me tell you.

heres what I had for meals today:

breakfast: nothing.  I had a busy morning and forgot all about eating, and when I realized that I hadn’t eaten, nothing sounded good, so I decided to wait until lunch.

lunch: leftover chicken primevera from Tuesday nights dinner; it was actually better the second time around!

dinner: the last of the chicken primavera.  Yes, I ate the same meal twice today, and I’m okay with that. 😀

That’s pretty much it for today; nothing to exciting to share.  But hey, tomorrow’s day 5, which means there’s only 25 days to go!

Whole 30 – Day 3

Well, to say that day 3 was a tough one would be putting it mildly.

i mean seriously, there was a battle going on in my mind ALL. DAY. LONG.

i wanted sugar, and I wanted it BAD.

i am shocked at how most of my food struggle is mental.  When I think of how good I feel when I eat whole, unprocessed foods, I am pumped and motivated to rock this Whole 30;

but on the other hand, when I focus on what I think I’m missing out on, such as sugar and processed food, I feel sad and deprived.

As i as I was reading a post yesterday by Dallis Hartwig, the creator of the Whole 30 program, I loved the above quote that he shared!

i seriously want and need to change the way I look at food, and to learn to see that I am worth  making healthy food choices.

food should not and does not need to control me, nor does it have a right to dominate my thoughts.

i am amazed at how much I’m learning this time around with the W30; I think my first round must’ve been so focused on getting through it that I didn’t really focus on what was happening in my thoughts and in my body.

here’s what I ate yesterday:

breakfast: a bowl of fruit, made up of strawberries, fresh pineapple, and banana.

lunch: taco salad

snack: baby carrots

dinner: salmon fried in grass fed butter, and a baked potato.

in case you haven’t noticed, I have a salmon theme going on this week. It’s quick and easy to prepare, and very healthy, so it’s become my go-to meal when I’m in a hurry or don’t know what else to have.

That pretty much sums up day 3; here’s hoping that day 4 is easier. 😁

summer break, hubby time, and Whole 30

Oh happy day!  This is officially our first day of summer break! We were basically at the point to where we were only working on grammar and writing each day, because we were done with everything else, so I was like, ” What the heck?!  We’re done!”  And believe me, […] Read more »
