  1. Clearly I haven't kept up with the daily updates, but I'm still on Whole30! Today is day 25, wooo! Honestly I feel like I have yet to experience the magic of the Whole30 with regards to exercise - I still feel like I'm dragging big time when I run. Otherwise, I feel great and my clothes feel a teensy bit looser. I'm looking forward to taking measurements next week (for once!). The half marathon is two weeks away, and I'm undecided whether or not I'm going to start the Whole30 reintroduction as planned on day 31, or if I'm going to give it more time to see if I just need longer to adjust. I'm
  2. Breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled with pumpkin, coconut milk, 1 small banana, pecans Lunch: salad with ground turkey, hamburger, and blackberries/almond butter/coconut milk dressing Dinner: steak stirfry and kale chips; banana, blackberries, coconut milk, toasted coconut flakes
  3. Day 10 Breakfast: 3 spicy tuna cakes fried in ghee, kale and butternut squash Lunch: salad with strawberries and almond butter mixed with coconut milk for the dressing Dinner: hamburger, sweet potato, broccoli Snack: hardboiled egg, pecans, 2 small pieces of chicken Day 11 Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, stirfry mix, ground turkey Lunch: salad with strawberries and almond butter mixed with coconut milk for the dressing Dinner: hamburger, sweet potato, broccoli, kale chips
  4. Breakfast: 3 spicy tuna cakes fried in ghee, kale and butternut squash Lunch: ground turkey with Italian sausage seasoning, broccoli, sweet potato with some coconut oil Dinner: apple onion pork chops, brussel sprouts Snack: hardboiled egg, apple and almond butter, 1 small piece of chicken My snack was practically a meal, I was so hungry when I got home from work yesterday! Been much hungrier the last couple of days, so I'm making sure to add a little more healthy fat to each meal. Fine by me, that's pretty much the best part anyway
  5. Breakfast: 3 spicy tuna cakes fried in ghee, kale and butternut squash, iced coffee with coconut milk Lunch: salad with strawberries and almond butter mixed with coconut milk for the dressing Dinner: leftover pork, cocoa-toasted cauliflower, and green beans Snack: 1 hardboiled egg and a larabar Exercise: walked home from work (2.75 miles) and did a body weight exercise routine - 3 x (10 backwards lunges, 15 pushups, 20 side leg raises per side, 45 seconds plank, 10 side lunges, 3 reverse chinups, 15 body weight squats) I wasn't thrilled about having the tuna cakes for breakfast but figured the
  6. Thanks, Hammlin! I'm used to tracking EVERYTHING at myfitnesspal.com, so it's a welcome break to just quickly write down what my meals were. I'm really loving the "listen to your body and don't weigh anything on your food scale" aspect of Whole30
  7. Breakfast: pre-run: 1 hard boiled egg and a handful of pecans; during: 1 larabar; after: 1 sweet potato and ground turkey with Italian sausage seasoning Lunch: salad and 3 spicy tuna cakes (NomNomPaleo app), apple with almond butter Dinner: slow cooker pork, cocoa-toasted cauliflower, green beans Exercise: 10 mile run Very disappointed in the spicy tuna cakes, I have to say. They looked so delicious in the NomNomPaleo app, but mine were just not that good. Too tuna-y...although I guess I'm not quite sure what I was expecting. On the other hand, the cocoa-toasted cauliflower was amazing and I
  8. This week was...ok. I'm still struggling with planning my workouts better because of the heat. My total mileage for the week was 15.8 miles.
  9. Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs with spinach, broccoli, and 1/2 avocado Lunch (emptying the fridge of leftovers): best chicken ever (recipe from Well Fed), spaghetti squash, 1/2 sweet potato, grapes Dinner: lemon rosemary broiled salmon, cumin roasted carrots (recipe from Well Fed), asparagus Snack: small piece of chicken and a few pecans The salmon was SO GOOD. And stupid simple to make - stick it in a pan with ghee, rosemary, salt, and sliced lemons, then broil for 10-15 minutes. Ta da!
  10. Breakfast: 2 fried eggs, leftover apple/onion mix, broccoli, coffee with ghee Lunch: salad with strawberries and almond butter mixed with coconut milk for the dressing Dinner: leftover Indian chicken and cauliflower rice Snack: pecans, 1/2 sweet potato with a little bit of almond butter

  12. Thanks for the encouragement, guys! It all went fine. One particularly obnoxious coworker who knows that I'm doing Whole30 but doesn't understand paleo at all tried REALLY hard to talk me into some cake..."You're only on day 4, look at this cake, it would totally be worth it to start over!" Um, no.
  13. Leaving this note here for accountability...I'm headed to a birthday ice cream party for one of my coworkers in a few minutes. I brought a tiny container of coconut milk so I could make myself some iced decaf coffee, so I will have to be content with that instead of being jacked up on sugar all afternoon. (work functions were a problem for me last challenge - I'm working on systems to make that better this time around, and leaning on you guys is one of them!)
  14. I'm loving your adrenaline shots! Fried eggs with avocado and turkey sounds delicious, I have to add that to my list of breakfast ideas.
  15. I'm so encouraged to read this, since this is a huge problem for me as well. I've also been taking magnesium (but no multivitamins, I checked the label on mine and they have soy in them, so they're out during the Whole30) and have read in several places that that's also really helpful for TOM issues. Crossing my fingers and toes that I'll have similar results. So glad that it's working for you!!
  16. Yes! Trust me on this, it's delicious. It tastes kind of like banana bread if you mix a smashed up banana in there too. My basic recipe is this: take 3 eggs, mix those together in a bowl with canned pumpkin (about 1/3 cup, I don't measure), coconut milk (about 1/4 cup), cinnamon, and allspice. Add a banana if you want, but that's optional. Mix everything really well and scramble it up on the stovetop in some coconut oil. Also good if you sprinkle some chopped nuts on top after it's done cooking, if you want a little crunch and some extra fat. It's pretty much this recipe, but without stevia o
  17. Breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled with pumpkin, coconut milk, and 1 small banana; coffee w/coconut milk Lunch: enormous salad with romaine lettuce, cucumber, green pepper, carrots, a bunch of chicken, and sunshine sauce dressing (recipe from Well Fed) Dinner: paleo Indian chicken (minus the honey) Snack: about 5 cashews and the crumbs left in the bottom of the container, plus helping myself to some extra coconut oil when I was making dinner Exercise: walked home from work, about 2.75 miles Feeling soooo foggy today. Saying the wrong words for things, being confused about when meetings are happening
  18. That's what I tell myself every time I have to get up at an ungodly hour just to get my run in! Seriously, though, I'm sure it's true - there was one day last week that was about 10 degrees cooler than it has been, and my mile pace was faster than what I've been doing by more than a minute. We just have to hang on til fall! *facepalm* I have no idea why I didn't think of that.
  19. It really is gorgeous - I've run it once before and it's such a great course. I was the exact same way when I started running. My old logs are hilarious to look at, though..."Long run today, 2 miles!" But we all have to start somewhere and there's absolutely no shame in that! Glad your run went well yesterday!
  20. Just a quick note to say that if anyone else is dusting off their resume for this challenge, I found this blog this morning and it looks like a great resource: JobJenny. She has a lot of good tips beyond what you find in old, tired, articles on monster.com.
  21. Has anyone else had the food dreams start yet? Last night I dreamed that I drank half a soda and had to start my Whole30 over...I was so mad at myself! I don't even drink soda (even before the Whole30), so that was kind of a weird one.
  22. Oooh that looks yummy! I love cauliflower rice, but we only have a mini food processor, so I have to do it in like 8 batches for a whole head of cauliflower. It would definitely speed things up to just use frozen cauliflower instead of chopping up a whole head. I think stressbunnies is my new favorite word I adore Well Fed - my husband isn't paleo but he has happily eaten EVERY recipe I've made from that cookbook, so that is a huge testament to how good the recipes are! I think my favorite section of the book is the spice mixes/sauces/condiments - those are all amazing. She also has a bunch
  23. Ah, ok. I know absolutely nothing about rowing, so it's cool to learn more about it! Good luck with your goals - will definitely be following your progress!
  24. The Scouts will miss you! Can't wait to hear how your half goes - I have no doubt that you're gonna ROCK it! And congrats on being the Scout Champion for the last challenge!!
