Whole30 Day 21

Breakfast. A little late. But feeling accomplished that I had some premade and I like it.  Definitely a new staple. 
I have a sick kid today so I will be home yet another day. (It's been a 4 day weekend with thanksgiving!)

Do you know what I'm learning today? I'm learning that my annoying moods a week before shark week are NOT food related. And that, my friends, sucks. Bad. Cutting out caffeine might help. Since I can't imagine a pleasant morning without my cup of coffee accompanying my devotionals, I'm going to purchase some decaf today to "trick" myself. Coffee is my one indulgence. But I feel the need to cut it out to check on my PMS and my acne. No better time than to start now. With ten technical days left of my whole30. 
Here's to always challenging myself.... Haha. 
Mid morning I had carrots and guac and berries and some banana. 
Lunch was more chicken soup with avacado and half a deviled egg. 
Snack of sweet potato fries an apple and when I was on the road a Lara bar. 
Completely insatiable and annoyed today. Wondering if shark week is actually a whole week away....
Dinner is even more chicken soup: 

chicken chili made with homemade turkey broth. I'm on a soup kick since it started to get cold and I learned I like soups the way I make them, just not the plain canned versions. 
After the gym tonight I had a baby food pouch and a bit later a couple applegate turkey hot dogs with some veggies, homemade mayo, tomato sauce, and mustard. 
Then yet another bowl of fruit. I realize on the whole 30 we are not supposed to have so many servings of fruit. And I generally try to limit them. Some days I was having none or just one. But other days there have been flukes of three servings. Tonight I knew I'd had enough fruit today as far as general nutrition goes but after the gym my throat was hurting and with a sick child who has been coughing in my face, I took my very strong fruit craving and ran with it. No regrets. But hopefully more vitamin c :)

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum.
