Breakfast: Apple/Carrot Juice

Worked from 5-10:30

Snack: 2 bananas

Lunch:turkey bacon and a salad with cherry tomatoes and avocados

Dinner: Turkey Burger and fresh beans from the garden

I'm impressed. I came home from work today and decided to "put off" taking my nap. So I talked with DH about plans for the weekend, showered, made an important phone call that took almost 40 minutes, and still had energy so I did the dishes. I went to get my adjustment and electrotherapy at 3:45 then DH had dinner cooking already. Still feeling pretty good although I do notice that I have sort bursts of tiredness yet. It's pretty much a big thing for me not to take a nap during the day, in the past I just couldn't function without the nap. Maybe now I can actually accomplish things during the day like a normal person instead of a walking zombie.

Not sure what is on the agenda for this weekend yet besides stick to the whole 30 plan. Sometimes I become tempted to just have a bite or lick of ice cream or a treat but then I think of something to keep my mind busy instead. Its HARD to see others enjoying ice cream and cold pop on a hot day then again it's hard to be fat too. ha.

    Hi Hon! Wanted to stop by and give my support.. today is Day 18 of my first Whole30 so I know what you're going through!!!

    It's awesome that you're logging your food up here so you can get some feedback. I would suggest adding LOTS more veggies. Have you looked at the meal template? You need one to two palm size servings of protein, a thumb or two of fat, and fill the rest of your dinner size plate with veggies. Fruit cannot replace veggies on your plate. Don't be afraid that you're eating too much while following the template. To me it just looks like you're not consuming enough food. Eat up! Also get rid of the juice and smoothies. They're just going to prolong your sugar withdrawals and they aren't particularly good for you.

    When you see people eating ice cream, have an avocado. It really works to bust the sweet tooth cravings!
