Ugh. Today I just REALLY wanted a big, greasy, delicious hamburger!!!
Breakfast was 2 bananas and some jerky. Not entirely sure if it was compliant, but it was pretty good. Of course I also had my morning tea.
Lunch was a salad. Just lettuce, tomatoes, olives and sunflower seeds. Found out after the fact sunflower seeds are a no go. Whoops. There weren’t that many so I think I’m OK! I also had some tomato basil soup. Didn’t think I’d like it, but YUM!
For dinner I made a sweet potato hash casserole. Just had shredded sweet potatoes, pork sausage and eggs. Turned out delicious! Hoping it reheats well.
Still no soda or energy drinks. Have to admit I almost had a soda today, but didn’t. Drank lots of water again.
Since starting Whole30 I’ve noticed my reflux is going nuts. I’ll have to keep an eye on it.
Today was a little tricky. I had to be in Wausau for a Life class at 8am. I woke up later than I planned, so I again left without making breakfast or a lunch!!
On the way to Wausau I stopped at Kwik Trip. For breakfast I had a watermelon cup and a cantaloupe cup with my tea. I was a bit hungry still, but resisted eating any of the donuts they had at the class. They smelled so A-MAZING!
Lunch was catered in from a local eatery. Sandwiches, cookies and chips. I refrained and ate my veggie salad with 2 hard boiled eggs. Got some weird looks since I was the only one not eating the food brought in. Tomorrow is a salad bar thankfully!
Today when I got home shortly after 6pm Eric had dinner going. He made a duck with a pasta salad. First time I’ve ever had duck. Honestly tasted just like chicken. Skipped the pasta salad and made some green beans and sliced up a pear.
Managed almost 64oz of water today! Today was also day 2 of no soda or energy drinks. To escape the horrible headaches my morning tea and afternoon tea has some caffeine, but no where near what I was consuming.
For those who don’t know, Whole30 is basically eating no processed junk or added sugars for 30 days. Totally more to it, but that’s the gist of it.
Day 1 = Epic Failure … Or was it?
Missed breakfast because I overslept. My mom had a mild stroke Dec 31st so sleeping has not been easy as of late, not that it ever really has been. Typically I’d hit the McDonald’s drive through for a delicious McGriddle or a McMuffin, but today I resisted. Sipped my tea I made before leaving and turned my nose up to my usual breakfast go to. Score 1 for me!
Work was INSANE. Non stop calls and walk ins. And to make it more awesome co worker went home sick. At 3pm I resigned myself to the fact I was not getting a lunch. And I was almost dying of starvation. To fight off the hunger pains I drank water like nobody’s business. And eventually succumbed to a Nature’s Valley Oats & Honey Granola Bar. Fail. Day 1 and already munching a non compliant food. BUT! In my drawer I also had chocolates and other candy, chips and cakes. So ha! Score 2 for me!
Typically 5pm and I’m shutting down. 645pm and I was FINALLY on my way home! Sent the hubs a message earlier to start dinner (roast with carrots and potatoes) but no response. I just knew there would be no dinner waiting for me on the dining room table. As I drove past every fast food place known to man, I resisted the urge to just say screw it, I’ll start over tomorrow. No. Instead I drove home and made baked chicken strips (tenderloin) and sliced red potatoes with tea. Score again! That’s 3 victories today!
So, sure. I may have eaten one non compliant food, but it was the best food choice available to me. And I resisted the urge more than once to indulge in a 1200 calorie burger. And I cooked a dinner for myself even though it meant eating at 830pm. So maybe today wasn’t such a failure after all.
