Almost a week into Whole 30 and I’m hanging in there. Fitting into the Whole 30 Timeline I have felt incredibly lethargic and tired today despite getting nearly 10 hours of sleep last night.
I haven’t had any crazy cravings today and have been excited to try new recipes for the week.
What I Ate Today
Breakfast: Classic breakfast of two eggs and fruit
Lunch: I had the last bowl of leftover Whole 30 Chilli
Dinner: I made the Creamy Broccoli-Kale Soup from the Whole 30 Fast and Easy cookbook as well as some Paleo pan fried chicken thighs for protein. The chicken thighs are currently cooking so I don’t have a picture of them but here’s the recipe I used from Oh Snap! Let’s Eat!
Tonight’s Snack: Apples with cinnamon and almond butter
Maybe an early bedtime tonight after a warm bath bomb bath. 🙂
Day 5 is here. When I woke up, I was feeling great. I was on top of the world. I felt okay about the Whole 30 thing. And then it hit me. The feelings I didn’t feel yesterday. I would be fine and then rage uncontrollably about nothing. Or break down into tears about nothing. And the cravings are real today. I want chocolate so badly – it has been all I have been thinking about: I have a container of hot chocolate I want to try, a box of chocolates from Christmas stored away. The picture above is pretty accurate. A cookie would be really freakin’ great right now.
I have a lot of energy and none seemingly at the same time. It comes in waves. I am continuing to stay positive and hydrated as much as possible.
What I Ate
Breakfast: Very unoriginal of me I had two eggs and some fruit.
Lunch: I had the leftover shrimp curry I made with some cauliflower rice.
Dinner: My boyfriend is supporting me during this Whole 30 journey and thought it would be a good idea to try recipes from my Whole 30 Fast and Easy Cookbook.
We made Sheet Pan Shrimp with Sesame Broccoli (p.132 ) and the Fajita Chicken from p. 136.
Both were delicious and easy to make. For the fajita chicken recipe, we did not make it with peppers and shrimp since we were using the shrimp for the other recipe. We used mushrooms and zucchini instead for the stir fry. There’s enough left over for lunch tomorrow and helped satisfy my hunger so I’m not thinking of chocolate and cookies.
