I’m doing the Whole30! (Also Happy New Year!)

2 01 2013

And i’m already right on track for the timeline!

Day 2 = feel hungover. So true, this morning I ignored 4 – 4 different alarms. Do you know hard that is for me? Usually I miss the first one and then I feel guilty and work myself out of bed. Not this morning!

Oh well, so far I haven’t been hungry (which is what I was expecting for some reason). But I am having random cravings like nobody’s business. Day 1 wasn’t so bad, but I did realise how much I eat just for the sake of eating (isn’t that sad). I was prepping dinner last night and I looked in the pantry and wanted a snack, but I wasn’t really hungry. ALSO I went out to run some errands last night and since I wasn’t doing anything else, I thought to myself – self: go grab a {insert delicious drink from s-bucks here}. It actually took me yelling (in my head of course) at myself to realise that i’m only on DAY 1!!! If I cave on Day 1 then i’m screwed! Thankfully I completed my errands and went on my merry way; although I did buy more than planned including my new favorite lip balm!


Anyways – So my eating plan for the Whole30 journey is based on the Practical Paleo Squeaky Clean Paleo lan – I’ve changed a few things because of the restrictions with the Whole30 plan (no sweeteners, etc.) But otherwise it’s pretty spot on… My fridge looks amazing and full after my shopping trip on the 31st:


Here’s a rundown of my day 1 eats:

Brekkie – Baked bacon with Sauerkraut @ Swirly Crustless Quiche


Lunch – Mustard Glazed Chicken Thighs with Spinach Salad & Balsamic Dressing


Dinner – Grilled Garlic Flank Steak with Peppers & Onions and Baked Beets with Fennel (Sooooooo good)

{no pic because I forgot – sorry}

Also had a Honeycrisp apple as my afternoon snack.


So now I have a ton of leftovers, which is awesome for day 2, except i’m supposed to cook up a whole other set of food? Does this happen to anyone else? Am I just screwy with my portion sizes? The Practical Paleo book says that it’s approximately 2 servings for the shopping list, but I feel like that’s a gross overestimate – or i’m not eating enough?

Drinking lots of tea and water today – hoping to combat the effects of my no drinking hangover… lol
