Yesterday was another good day although I admit I had cravings. FOR WINE!
TC and I had just finished up a boatload of yardwork yesterday afternoon. I dragged some lawn chairs out and we sat where we were, overlooking the valley. We were sitting in the shade and there was a cool breeze blowing. We got to watch the turkey buzzards soaring on the wind currents. They are a disgusting bird but beautiful to see in flight. But I digress! It would have been a perfect moment for a glass of wine, definitely NOT on the Whole30 approved list!
But the moment passed and so onward and upward.
Yesterday I did a KILLER 75-minute CardioPump class with a substitute instructor. She's just brutal. I also did 2 miles on the treadmill in addition to the yard work.
Here's what I had to eat yesterday:
Breakfast: 2 deviled eggs, 2 turkey sausage links, 1 cup watermelon (400 calories)
I also have to say that after YEARS of eating very-low-calorie "mayonnaise products", my homemade mayo is totally DELISH -- rich creamy yumminess!
Lunch: 2 tablespoons organic almond butter, celery for dipping, leftover veggies: yellow squash sauteed with onions and roasted cauliflower, 1 cup watermelon. (475 calories)
Dinner: Whole30 compliant chicken salad over lettuce and spinach, with avocado, tomato, and black olives. 1 cup honeydew (536 calories)
Another observation: I am eating WAY more calories during the day. In the past my combined breakfast and lunch would be right around 500 calories. No wonder I was STARVED by dinner and continued eating/snacking into the evening!
The authors of "It Starts With Food" say that the Whole30 program will "change your life". While I'm not ready to say that after 5 days, I'm certainly seeing change, and so far they've been good.
Happy Hump Day, Sparkfriends!!
