Worked out first thing this AM (ok, it was 11am whatever haha) and feel GREAT.
It really does feel good. But it’s freaking hard. And I’m sore. Two more days? Hope I can do this! The plan is to workout 4 days in a row, then every other day for the remainder of the 21 days and re-measure. I even made a cheat sheet in Illustrator of the moves since I’m so poor and can’t afford the $30+ for the DVDs. I’m very good at maintaining form (hello YEARS of Yoga/Pilates) so I think I got that portion down-pat.
Oh Mark Sisson. How am I supposed to get outside for 15 minutes when it rained the whole damn weekend? And play with my beautiful 3 year old? She’s all about daddy right now. And I’m working a lot. Whew! Why am I doing a challenege in December again? Oh yeah, I have lost all my marbles. I remember now.
Scrambled eggs on top of Sprouts no-crap-added pork breakfast sausage with butter, olive oil, coconut oil, spinach, bell peppers, green onion and garlic.
A gluten-free chocolate chop cookie and one gingerbread cookie. I stopped myself though of course, I wanted more.
Coffee with honey and half-and-half
Might skip it. So much to do today!
A shrimp pesto artichoke and spinach sauté with cauliflower rice.
So yesterday was a rough one. After it taking much more time grocery shopping and spending more, I feel like this challenge is too hard. I have a 2 year old. I have a tight budget. I have work as a freelancing designer, it’s A LOT. I am in the kitchen much more then I ever have been. And while this is OK and even enjoyable for me, some things are getting neglected because of my obsession with food, loosing weight, eating healthy.
I did indulge in some pinot grigio last night and then even had a glass of red wine. Baaaaad! But you know what? That’s the THE ONLY thing I indulged in. Everything else was Whole30 compliant. Am I allowed one cheat? We shall see. I did wake in the middle of the night with major gas an. I’m not sure if it’s the wine, it makes me think… wow this is weird. I feel like garbage today as well. I know I need to lay off of it, it’s very hard. I know once I get pregnant for #2, I won’t have the opportunity. So I felt insanely deprived. Maybe today and the rest of the weekend will be all Whole30. This is my goal!
Cantaloupe and green tea
A salad from a highly Yelp rated market. I will make sure it’ll be on plan.
Roasted chicken and green beans.
Woke up SUPER early today. Thanks to the toddler face and her wacky sleep/wake times. I just can’t get a handle on them. Lucky for her I work from home and I am used to sleep deprivation. Yeah. Thyroid issues suck.
Feeling good though, not caring much about sugar. Last night I did have a bit of a sweet attack but luckily, fruit was good enough. Loving that!
Delicious eggs with my lovely organic ghee
Sweet potatoes fried in coconut oil with cinnamon and salt
Ugh. Chicken. Salad. AGAIN. I couldn’t eat it all this time. So sick of it. So I made a mishmash smoothie with banana, a larabar, frozen blueberries and coconut flakes. Yes and sun tea for extra flavor. That’s one I’d never have thought of. Tasted pretty darn good!
Hoping to do a Thai Style wrap thingie. I have no idea what I’m doing for dinner… Le Sigh! Update: Did some DELISH bison burgers which were on sale at Sprouts. YUMMY! And totally Whole30 compliant… Some bell peppers, avocado, onions and tomatoes to go with. It was great on the BBQ.
Larabar, strawberries and blueberries.
Oooh dear. I’m currently having a glass of wine (or 3). Guess I’m cheating today. I’m not starting over. Just having one of those days…
