Whole 30 Day 1

I survived Day 1!

It was a rough day but not due to my new eating habits.  I have been having really severe mouth pain so it was hard to eat anything.  I only ate around 1,000 calories today because it was just too hard to eat anything.  Even water hurts! This is also why I could not video blog today..

I did use my time wisely today though to get prepared for the rest of week.  Even not feeling well I had to make sure I was prepared for the week ahead especially just starting this challenge.  I was tired so there were a lot of breaks in between but I finished!  Overall meal wise day 1 was easy.  I will say I did have an urge for chocolate but nothing I couldn’t control.  I did not miss my diet dr pepper at all today..didn’t really think about it until now honestly.

Here’s what I ate today
