Jonesy's yearly Whole30


Jonesy

Recommended Posts

I know I've been slacking on posting but last challenge went surprisingly well. I was having a salad almost every day for lunch (I hate salads), I'm still going to bed too late but I'm getting better at getting up on time. I still hate the summer heat though. Lol. I rocked the mini and continue to rock it.

 

This next challenge is all about my Whole30. Usually, I start it in September but I have a staycation planned mid-September and this challenge date prove as better timing around my Sounders games. 2 games during this whole30 time VS 5 during all of September.

 

If you are unfamiliar with Whole 30, here is the gist. 

 

Eat real food

Eat clean food

No added sugar, real or artificial. 

No alcohol - not even for cooking

No grains

No legumes - no beans which include peanuts and soy products

No dairy

Avoid baked goods, junk foods, or treats with “approved” ingredients

 

Exceptions: Ghee is ok, fruit juice in food is ok, certain legumes are ok (pods such as green beans, snow peas, and sugar snap peas), vinegar except for malt, coconut aminos,  salt.

 

Whole30 Timeline

 

 

My Whole dates are August 14th to September 13th. 

 

Starting Weight = 323

This week breakfast is undecided right now but lunch will consist of sausage and roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower. 

 

Dinner will either be chicken or steak with sautéed onions and sweet potato in the form of fettuccine noodles.

I'm on day 13. The longest I've made it in the past is 29 (I know, I know, what an awful time to cave).

 

Thank you! I think this will be my 3rd or 4th time. I can never remember but each time I have thought, 29 is good enough right?

It's amazing how spices become even more flavorable and veggies because tasty. It's weird. Haha

Day 1

 

Things went well. I was still peckish after lunch but it was better after drinking water. Went to the store after work to pick up some ingredients for my sauce. 

 

Found out I may be allergic to either oranges or grapefruit or some other fruit. I'm fairly certain it is grapefruit but don't really want to test it yet. I had one small sip and less than a minute my tongue and throat started to tingle and then my upper lip started to go numb. Even had a hard time breathing and felt like a 10lb weight was on my chest. Not fun. 

 

Was exhausted so I went to bed slightly after 10.

 

Breakfast : tea and RXBar

Lunch : chicken and apple sausage with roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

Dinner : pork and sweet potato "fettuccine" with broccoli, onions and garlic with a coconut curry sauce. 

Snacks : handful of plantain strips and unsweetened dried mango.

Thanks! My whole30 meals are usually new and an experiment to me. It's one of the reasons I like doing the Whole30. :) 

 

Day 2 did not start great. I woke up with around 6 am with a massive migraine and it lasted pretty much all day. A migraine that made me feel nauseous on and off all day. It sucked. I also had the food nightmares ALREADY! Last night I dreamt I ate a pastry with fruit and cream and then chocolate. It felt so real. 

 

Breakfast: coffee with Nutpot, RXBar and a handful of plantain strips

Lunch: chicken and apple sausage with Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower

Dinner: pork and sweet potato "fettuccine" with broccoli, onions, and garlic with a coconut curry sauce. 

Snacks: a handful of plantain strips and unsweetened dried mango. 

 

Also, both the HR Director AND the Fire Chief told me to apply for a new position within the Fire Department. We posted an Administrative Assistant job last Friday, pays $7k more than my current one and has more room for growth. Talked to the recruiter today and she said they've had over 140 applications. I've gotten nothing but excitement and encouragement from the HR department and even my own boss but I'm still really nervous. I'm handing in my resume and cover letter tomorrow. The job closes on the 21st. :worked_till_5am:

Having people from your org encourage you to apply probably puts you ahead of most of those applicants though! Good luck!!

Day 3 was a snacky day! All I wanted to do once I got home was snack. I wanted crunch and bread and all the things. I had some plantain chips, so many and water and dinner. It was rough. Also turned in my resume and got a job interview for August 27th! There are now over 200 applicants for the job. I was chatting with the recruiter and she said the HR Director had said, wait until we post the receptionist position....which I think is pretty darn good sign. 

 

Breakfast: tea with Nutpot and handful of unsweetened dried mango

Lunch: chicken and apple sausage with Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower and an orange

Dinner: pork and sweet potato "fettuccine" with broccoli, onions, and garlic with a coconut curry sauce. 

Snacks: way too many plantain strips

Day 4 was OK. I didn't feel that great and had no appetite. I had planned on eating breakfast but was not hungry. I barely wanted to eat lunch but I forced myself to. 

 

Breakfast: coffee with Nutpot

Lunch: chicken and apple sausage with Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower and an orange

Dinner: pork and sweet potato "fettuccine" with broccoli, onions, and garlic with a coconut curry sauce. I also added a small thing of dipping sauce. Mustard and coconut aminos 

Snacks: none

Day 5 was a long ass day. Got up early to go to the farmers Market with a friend and the stand I was hoping to go to was not there. Went to the store to get some snacks since I went to the Sounders game. My friend ate a hot dog next to me and it smelt to good. Nommed all my snacks but I think it was more to keep my mouth busy and not want delicious stadium food. Was not super hungry at all but had a headache. I need to plan better for the weekends. 

 

 

Lunch: naturally sweet and sea salt plantains chips, unsweetened dried mango and a cranberry and sage turkey jerky 

Dinner: tuna, broccoli, orange and plantain chips

 

Day 6 was a super lazy day. Watched a crap ton of Netflix, laid around, worked on my bujo and planned meals for next week. Again not a hungry day. 

 

Lunch: pork and a faux potato salad. Needed to clean out the veggies in my fridge so I made my faux potato salad out of Cauliflower and onions. Was not bad but was not great either. 

Dinner: plantain chips and tea

Day 7 was not great. I woke up with a headache and then spent 30+ mins looking for my keys. I never found them and ended up calling work to let them know I would be super late but I'd walk in. My co-worker offered to pick me up, I only live .8 miles but it's super unhealthy outside right now so I was grateful. I needed to go to the grocery store so I did Safeway delivery. Got home and waited and waited...then checked the order confirmation and noticed it was for Tuesday, NOT Monday. Uugh. Also found my keys super late after cleaning my entire downstairs, they were in my purse...

 

Breakfast: chia seed pudding with coconut and raspberry

Dinner: Tilapia, green beans, and mashed cauliflower

 

Day 8 was much better but I had to scramble for food since I didn't get my food order. Got home and cleaned my kitchen while I waited for the delivery. I waited and waited and they still were not showing up. I called customer service and was on hold for 36 mins before they picked up and 5 mins later the delivery finally shows up. They were 1 hour and 44 mins late. SO LATE. They said they tried to call but I never got a phone call. Finally got to get started on food prep though. Made breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the week. 

 

Breakfast: blueberry RXBar

Lunch: bacon, steamed broccoli, and an orange

Dinner: chicken bites, sweet potato fries, and cashew curry sauce

Day 8 was much better but I had to scramble for food since I didn't get my food order. Got home and cleaned my kitchen while I waited for the delivery. I waited and waited and they still were not showing up. I called customer service and was on hold for 36 mins before they picked up and 5 mins later the delivery finally shows up. They were 1 hour and 44 mins late. SO LATE. They said they tried to call but I never got a phone call. Finally got to get started on food prep though. Made breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the week. 

Ughhhhuhgh. That sucks!

Today is day 15 and I'm doing GREAT. I'll post more later but I've been busy the last week and nervous and stressing.

 

Yesterday I had an interview and I got the job! 12 weeks at the fire department and I'm already moving to another department and getting a promotion! I'm excited and scared and nervous to start something I've never done. I don't know my start day yet but it's looking like the beginning of October.
