Notes: So. That happened! I am going to give you a full emotional and physical recap of how the Whole 30 worked for me ASAP, but let’s just say for now, I feel good! I’m proud of myself and its great to have completed this challenge with travelling, pride, and life happening all around me. Go me!
Sleep: 8.5 awesome hours. YES. I have needed that for like a week, and I slept like a fucking rock. Thanks pride!
Water: 16 cups
Pre-wod breakfast- 9:00AM: Green smoothie! 1/2 cup of coconut water, 1/2 cup of cucumber, 1/2 an avocado, 1.5 cups romaine lettuce, pumpkin seed protein powder, and one egg white. Coffee with home made hemp milk.
Post-Wod breakfast- 11:30AM: Two eggs and kale sauteed in coconut oil with salsa.
Lunch- 2:30PM: Salad. lettuce, hardboiled egg, tofu, olive, sweet potato, almond butter, cabbage, celery, olive, cucumber, baba ghannouge and oil and vinegar. Bubble water on the side.
Snack- 5:30PM: Romaine lettuce smeared with baba ghannouge, cashews, and macadamia nuts. Nutritional yeast sprinkle.
Dinner-6:00PM: Omelette with vegan macadamia nut milk based brie. Kale, sauerkraut, salsa, nutritional yeast.
Completely unnecessary snack– 10:00PM: Vegan frozen yogurt topped with coconut, kiwi, sunflower seeds and chocolate chips. I was two hours shy of my whole 30, but because I am seriously considering extending it I decided to just go for it! You know what? It was just kind of okay. I was happy to be hanging with friends and Lacy post sugar is very amusing but MEH. Tomorrow marks the start of the national official Whole 30, which some friends of mine are doing and I am really leaning towards just Whole30ing on. I will not be tracking so obsessively (you all get what I’m doing at this point, right?) but I just like the way I feel when I eat like this. Like, sort of liberated? I don’t know how to explain it.
Activity- Crossfit Class, which had 5 sets of 5 shoulder presses (I maxed out at 50 lbs. Meh!) followed by 3 rounds for time of a 200 meter farmers carry, five wall walks, and 10 goblet squats. I finished in just under 15 minutes and sweat all over myself. In the evening I took a four mile bike ride to get that fro yo.
