Hello! I’m back again for another update on my Whole30 program experiment. If you want to catch up, here is my first post and my day five update. First, look at this beautiful day we are having in Seattle! First sunny day in FOREVER. So excited not to run in the freezing cold rain anymore!
How I feel right now:
I feel sick actually. I contracted a cold from somewhere! This is upsetting because I rarely ever get sick, like I can’t remember the last time I was sick and it happens when I’m apparently eating the healthiest I’ve ever eaten! Also, I’m bummed because I feel very tired so my runs haven’t been going well this week 🙁 Oh well, I”ll give myself a rest day from the gym today probably since I feel a little feverish also and hopefully this goes away soon! OTHERWISE, I feel good and my skin is really clear and glowy! Still falling asleep pretty fast but I have been waking up in the middle of the night the last few nights, I think it’s because I’m eating too much sugar (fruit) before bed…
What I’ve been eating:
Lots of good stuff! Here is what I ate today:
Breakfast: Delicious kale sweet potato egg muffins that I kind of just winged as far as the recipe. I also had some snap peas and strawberries.
Lunch: My favorite easy lunch, tuna with avocado and crushed almonds with kale salad and balsamic vinaigrette (homemade). Also had some red bell pepper slices.
Snack: According to the Whole30 rules, you are supposed to avoid snacking but sorry, I just can’t go without eating for 5 hours in-between lunch and dinner yet! I’m missing a veggie here also, but I had extra at lunch so maybe that makes up for it? 😉
Dinner: I’m going to have a sweet potato baked with guac and a couple eggs mixed with sauerkraut! My grandma bought me some fancy locally made kraut and I have been enjoying it so much! I also got some fresh eggs from her neighbor, score! Notice the dirt/poop on them below ha ha. I really wish I had some pet chickens, nothing beats a fresh egg and the difference between the store ones and fresh are quite noticeable.
My “dessert” will probably be a few dates stuffed with almond butter, ugh, I can’t get enough of them!
Eating too much fruit still, like tummy hurts too much. Going to try to just have one serving of fruit with each of my three meals instead of also as snacks. Also, I find myself hungry between meals a lot so I think my meals are too small. I’m going to try to make my three meals bigger so I’m not reaching for snacks in-between.
In other news, I got an odd package in the mail yesterday and opened it and it was a medal from the hot chocolate run I did a few weeks ago! I didn’t know getting third place in my age group got a medal! What a nice surprise…a rare surprise since I never win anything! 🙂
Have you ever won anything?
Have a wonderful Wednesday and thank you for hosting Arman!
