Feeling so much better!!
Much much better day 🙂 I am very proud that I stuck with this even when I felt miserable! When I feel sick I tend to go to comfort foods and well that is hard to do when I cleared out the pantry and fridge! So I fought the odds..got through it..time to embrace the program!
Breakfast Day 4
Cauliflower rice, brussel sprouts, over easy egg, olives, chicken sausage
Lunch Day 4
Blueberry waldorf salad over spring mix
Snack Day 4
watermelon, blueberry, coconut & cashews
love love love love this!
also had a banana & a hard boiled egg during the day
Dinner Day 4
zucchini noodles, caramelized onions, garlic, jalapeno chicken sausage and cherry tomatoes
Day 4 went pretty well. I will admit I did have the undying urge to add parmesan cheese to my dinner. I wouldn’t have done it (mainly because I dont have any….) but it’s so odd how these old habits have such a grasp on me! When I sat down to eat my meal I quickly realized it was delicious and did not need any added cheese! It was good all on its own. My other struggle today was I still track my food even though during the challenge you dont necesarily have to. After I tracked it said I was way over on fat grams for the day. I instantly freaked out! I started googling any information to help me know what my fat intake should be. I stumbled upon this article and felt a little better. It pretty much explains the health benefits of healthy fats as opposed to the junk fats from processed foods. All food I consumed today was considered a ‘healthy fat’ so I need to get out of that mindset that all fat is bad. It’s hard! Overall though it was a good day. I’m excited to get back into the gym tomorrow with my trainer.
The Whole 30 “what to expect” calendar shows tomorrow should be a grumpy day..watch out!
