Whole30 Day 7

Sunday, June 02, 2013

One week in! bam!

My sleep schedule is getting all thrown off. Staying up late and waking up late or napping making me want to stay up late again. Tomorrow Chris starts a new painting project so I have to actually get up at 7. Yikes! (I'm not really complaining.) But I'm not tired yet which means i probably wont sleep great so tomorrow is not looking awesome... would be great if this tiger blood energy kicked in!

Cravings are still manageable which I'm thankful for. My friend made these brownies today because my other friend is leaving for London for 2 years and they looked AMAZING. They were passing them right under my nose. I was tempted but not horribly. I just moved away and ate my hard boiled eggs and didnt think about it. And then Chris brought a rotisserie chicken for dinner thinking it would be a time saver and i had to give it the boot when i read the ingredients list. Sugar among other things. Actually i gave it to my kids while we had the greek chicken left overs from last night. It looked soo good! Now I am craving a rotisserie chicken! We actually have a rotisserie machine thingy so i think we'll be busting that out after i can get to the store.

My meals today

Breakfast: 2 eggs with spinach, 2 pieces of ham and 1 plantain tostada

Lunch: 2 hard boiled eggs, 1 slice ham and an apple

Dinner: slow cooker greek chicken, whopping plate full of roasted okra, butternut and yellow squash with olive oil

I know lunch wasn't great but i was short on time and well you know the planning thing. I'm actually short on money too so we might be seeing some creativity in the next few days meals. Eggs for everyone!

I'm still super sore. Tomorrow I'm going to the gym and do SOMETHING even if its only to walk around the track.

I made some mayo tonight in my food processor. I'm very excited about it!

I forgot to post yesterday. Lets see if i can remember what i had:

Breakfast: 2 eggs with 1 slice ham banana with almond butter

Lunch: 2 hard boiled eggs side salad ... i cant remember if there was anything else. grr!! i think maybe an apple?

dinner: 2 plantain tostadas, greek slow cooker chicken with coconut milk, avocado and salad

I feel like I am getting peckish in between meals but nothing crazy. I hope that means I'm on the right track. When you're fat adapted, you're supposed to be able to go longer periods without getting hungry and i think thats happening for me. I dont feel the urge to go grab something out of the pantry all the time. But I'm having trouble not obsessing about my weight. Im not weighing myself but i dont feel like my clothes are getting looser or anything. I know its still early days and the whole point of not weighing is to not obsess but i cant help it. It doesnt help that photos of me taken today showed up on facebook and i look so FAT! argh!! Plus we've pretty much decided that we're going to PA around the 1st of july so the clock is ticking. How good can i look before we go? not that good is my feeling. I'm gonna try to be diligent with the exercise but im still just not sure if I'm eating the right amount of fats and starches and all that. i know i keep saying that.

no headache today either. i think its passed now. i think i'm on my way to feeling good!

    Glad to hear things are going well for you! And turning down brownies?!? emoticon For the chicken, you can throw the whole thing in the crock pot with some spices and it'll be good to go in a few hours.
