Whole30 Day11: November 2013

The further I get in the program, the better I feel, look, and handle the challenge of staying away from the foods. Currently my mood is at its best. Relatively more patient, happier, and not much "hangry" feelings.
I like it. Sometimes I consider doing this longer. Even though I still want to eat 14 cupcakes in one sitting. Sometimes that's the reason I want to keep going. To make that self control kick in. I don't know if it ever will. But what's the harm in trying. 
With some strawberries and banana. I had full fat canned coconut milk in my coffee. I presume that's a good fat for my morning. 
This is tilapia, carnitas and mixed bell peppers with onion. Some clean salsa, and homemade guac. I finished up the rest the guac(which altogether equalled out 3/4 avacado) with some whole carrots. 
My oldest has an after school activity on Fridays so we get home way later than normal. Today I was starving by the time her lessons even started. I had an apple, seasnax and a cherry Lara bar. Not exactly as well rounded as I need but all clean emergency snacks. I honestly call it a success.learning from it though. 
Dinner for me was leftover steak and chicken from my parents house. I was ever so grateful. I paired it with some bell peppers and onions, topped it with coconut aminos, and made a homemade guac. While watching- and hearing ;) my family eat pizza. 
I later had a spoonful of coconut butter again. 
Some days are easier than others. Almost All nights seem hard. Somehow I think this is psychological. 20 days to go :)

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.
