Notes: Today has been challenging. I found out that I will have fewer teaching hours than I anticipated in the fall, I had some interpersonal drama, and I ever-so-slightly re-rolled my ankle after it was six weeks into the healing process. FUCKING DUMB. I am trying to keep calm and positive but just- I don’t know. Life, right?! Shit’s wild some days.
Despite it all food remained solid, as above all this Whole 30 has helped me see that there really are no excuses to eat poorly. I had a bad day, do I want to eat things that will make me feel bad as a result? Well, no. Obviously not. That’s just silly.
Sleep: 8 hours, sort of. I went to bed around 11:30 and woke up at 5:30 AM. Of course this totally bummed me out and although I felt wide awake I decided the best course of action would be to just lay there. Like adamantly lay. I fell back asleep eventually and woke up around 7:30. Ugh. Why has this week been so full of weird, strained sleep?
Oh yeah! I just remembered that I woke up because I was hungry! I ate a few bites of kabocha squash sometime around 6:00AM. Weird, I had totally forgotten.
Water: 19 cups. Yes. I’m dead serious, although I can barely see how it is possible without an IV drip. I was incredibly thirsty today and had a sweaty bike ride, a crossfit workout, and a lot of coffee. After I get my eight cups of water I definitely don’t try to drink more, so really at least 11 cups of this was just totally out of thirst. Wild.
Food: Breakfast- 8:00AM: Kale, two eggs & one egg white fried in coconut oil with avocado salsa. Suuuuuper creamy smoothie with 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of cucumber, 1/2 an avocado, two cups romaine, a bunch of ginger, a dash of vanilla, pumpkin seed protein powder, and about 1/8 of a banana. Delicious.
Lunch- 1:00PM: A carrot, steamed broccoli, sprouted tofu sauteed in coconut oil, pesto, cashew gravy, sauerkraut and kabocha squash. Gimme.
Dinner-6:00PM: A giant ass salad. Romaine, cucumber, olive, shredded carrot, cabbage, hardboiled egg, habanero lime cashew “cheese”, tofu, sprouted almonds, sweet potato, avocado and olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Super satiating!
Snack- 10:00PM: Carrot and cashew gravy.
Activity- About six miles of biking around Oakland, and a crossfit class. We did front squats in sets of 5-5-3-3-1-1-1. I peaked at 115 pounds. After we did 2 minute sections of as many reps as possible of dumb bell snatches, ring dips, and sit ups. It was a good one!
Macros: I didn’t count today but if I had to go out on a limb I would guess today was moderately high carb! Carrots three times and sweet potato will totally do that. Meh! Fuck it.
