Day(s) 6-13

14 01 2013


Hi! Sorry about being MIA for the last week, i’ve been on my computer so much at work that i’ve had absolutely no desire to go home and be on my comptuer as well. But I’m back!

Anyways, a quick update on Days 6-13. I still haven’t cheated (which is UNHEARD of for me). I think the trick this time that’s really helped me be accountable is telling anyone and everyone what i’m doing. It makes them question food decisions for me if I randomly comment on “craving” something…

I’ve been cooking a lot these last couple of days, which is awesome too. Since I usually just pick something up on the way home if i’m feeling tired or not like cooking (which was all too often!). Since I didn’t eat Paleo-ish before this challenge, I’ve really had to sit down and plan out all my meals plus shopping lists and such. As I’ve said before, i’m roughly following the Squeaky Clean Paleo Plan from Practical Paleo. I like that the website has printable guides as well as shopping lists for all the weeks in the plan. Also – to keep me on track at home i’ve been using this:

ms plannerIt’s a weekly planner from the Martha Stewart Home Office line (I got mine from staples…). It’s awesome – I write down the lunch and dinner menu for the week ahead and I can quickly see what’s for dinner that night, or if i’m not feeling it I can switch stuff around. Organization has been KEY to keeping me on track (so that I have a lunch to take to work in the morning, and i’m not scrambling trying to find something Whole30 friendly last minute).

The nice thing is that there’s been a great variety of food in our house (except for breakfasts – i’m keen to stick to what’s easy to prep, and lots of it).

Great news too! I have energy again! The first few days of the Whole30 challenge were really rough for me. I was super tired, felt like I was so so so hungover. It’s really nice to be out of that stage and wanting to work out again! Last week I did 3 Zwow Workouts (love her), went to crossfit, and went to a Met-Con class at a new gym that i’m thinking of trying out, also am re-starting the Couch to 5K program (finished week 1!), because a goal of mine this year is to run a 10k or  half-marathon, and I need to start somewhere… I’m using the app Get Running which has all the timing built in, so you just have to plug in some headphones and you are good to go (instead of having to set timers and such all the time), it’s pretty handy and you can listen to music at the same time!

For christmas I got these awesome headphones: bluebudsx

Which i’ve been using while running, and so far they are pretty awesome. They are bluetooth ones so there are no cords to get tangled in, they sound pretty amazing, they have these funky ear cushion thingys so they stay put, and there are two ways to wear them so you can set them up to get the cord off your neck and look super hardcore… lol

Eats have been pretty random, and i’ve been bad at taking pics, but I will get back to updating regulary with more pictures!

Hope you guys are doing great on your Whole30! 🙂
