Whole30: Day 10: November 2013

Double digits. Yeah buddy.
That was a joke. I have no enthusiasm, energy, or even much of a brain today. Yesterday I was dizzy all day, today I'm just lacking energy. Mostly mental I think. My body feels great right now. I'm still having trouble getting hungry. But then when I start eating I'm suddenly wolfing it down because I had no idea I was hungry. I guess my body is adjusting. Especially with the difference of cravings vs. hunger. My meals have been boring. They're good most of the one I just don't have a lot of time or money to make them elaborate and I just go with the flow. 
(I ate my berries and bananas before I could get a picture.) also, I forgot a fat. I realized when I felt unsatisfied a couple hours later. So I had some avacado :)
I also had a Lara bar pre workout cuz I had breakfast too late and wasn't hungry for lunch and didnt want to put something heavy on my stomach pre workout. Then it was only a couple hours until dinner so I only had another food pouch post workout. Not perfectly on point nutritionally but at least it was all clean food. Dinner was chicken Alfredo made with speghetti squash and delicata squash, coconut milk, chicken thighs and spices. I forgot a picture there. I was hungry :)
It was hard to not eat chips or ice cream or anything for some reason at night. I eventually caved in a sense and got myself a small spoonful of coconut butter. Which is allowed on whole30 but i avoid trying to feed my sugar demon. When I get very tired its difficult. But in the morning I feel physically and mentally like a million bucks. Ready to take on the day. It's worth the resisting. Maybe one day I won't feel like that at night....

Just another story.

I have been told telling my story will help.. people. I don't see how that is the case but I figure there is some reason I have dealt with the things that I have. So I'll start out simple.


Crippling. Suffocating. Like a straight jacket warn under water.

Sounds so dramatic. So exaggerated. But it's so real. There's a quote that describes it perfectly "You don't need water to feel like you're drowning, do you?" no. I don't.

I've always had anxiety. for as long as I remember. After I had my youngest child it got significantly worse. It was no longer a panic attack that I would get over once I figured out or was proven everything would be okay. It was tightness in my chest all night and I didn't know why. It was someone is going to get sick and I know that will kill us all. It was sleeping in his room every night for months. It was waking up every few hours to check his breathing. It was my daughter has a sore tooth it's all goi…

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)
Sun- chicken "fingers" and sweet potato fries with mixed veg.
M- Shrimp and (leftover) chicken and "fried riced cauliflower"
T- chicken tortilla-less soup
W- breakfast for dinner - self explanatory. Easy. Cheap. Favorite.
Th- thanksgiving !! At someone else's house ;)
Fri- taco night. I have renamed pizza night taco night. Because I can. Because I'm mom. This week will be ground turkey tacos because it's the cheapest if bought in  bulk.
Sat- leftovers

Breakfast: I made myself a frittata and  hubby has breakfast sandwiches I make him. He's super picky about healthy foods and if left to his own devices lives off bagel bites and chips. Which …

Whole30 again? Why?

I'm on day 9 of a whole30. I've done them before and I eat FAIRLY decent(I have my moments) but I felt like it was time to do another.
I was feeling fatigued, anxious, depressed, and my skin was atrocious. I wasn't sleeping well and my hormones were very obviously out of whack. I know a whole 30 improves all of these things so much so my goal was to just jump in and do one. I know how this goes, I've read all the books, I've done a handful of them within the last few years, and I am not new to meal prep. In fact, I have had several false starts in all of January and February of 2017 and I meal prepped almost every weekend of said months. My best friend said that she was ready to do one after a long time of considering it and I jumped on board. Something clicked this time and I have so far been successful.
Why am I doing it this time.
Besides the obvious benefits everyone explains about a whole30, I specifically wanted to feel my best mentally and physically because…
