Whole30 Day16: November 2013

Every day I write a new number I get a little more excited. Not because its closer to being over, but knowing I've gotten this far. It's getting tough not to take random bites of food from things I'm making for other people. Not because I want it but because my brain is going to default which was taking bites and licks of leftover from the kid's - and my husband's - food. It's good I'm getting out of the habit of doing it because like I stated: I don't really want it. I'm not missing a thing by not tasting it. I know what it tastes like. Not that great.
I've finally entered the realm where breakfast does not have to be breakfast food. Pumpkin chili a friend sent me the recipe for. Everything about it is good. Coconut milk. Pumpkin. Ground turkey. Carrots even. And green peppers. So much good all in one dish. I'm in love. 
(Some of the most tasty food looks the grossest) the ground meat gave me a bit of acid reflux but that's not too new. It's just more intense without starchy foods to drown it out. 
Been feeling "itchy" or "tingly" all over on the inside of my skin not outside for days now. Wondering if its a slight reaction or a hormone thing. Waiting to see if it dissapates. If not. I start cutting out foods. Or adding. :) I have a suspicion I need to get more red meat in :) :) 

Had to snap this pic before I ate it all! My hunger creeped up on me...
I had an afternoon snack of kombucha and A Lara bar because I knew I'd be at the gym during dinner time. 
Dinner was chicken tortilla-less soup. 
I was craving carbs so I cooked up a little sweet potato to go along with it. 
Today was back squats and cleans.... 
Of course later I finished it all up with some coconut butter. Because I needed a fat. :) and because its delicious. 
I don't want to go back to a world where coconut butter isn't magical....

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.
