Whole30 Day20

So glad I have a commitment not to eat junk right now. I'm hungry. And emotional. Horrible combo.
Breakfast was one egg, 1/3 an avocado, bell peppers with onion, leftover turkey and berries with a small banana. 
After church I was starving again but needed to run some errands so I grabbed a Lara bar and kombucha. 

Focusing on water intake today. 

I may or may not have made a few deviled eggs today. They were whole30 friendly. 

Lunch was more leftovers then a snack of a baby food pouch with squash later on. 
Dinner was amazing because I just got tired of my foods. So I get elaborate 

Went for a short walk today. And prepped some egg muffins for me and the hubs :)

I feel like I'm ready to be set free into the world but logically know it'll do me good to at least get the next ten/eleven days in before I re-introduce things. I can't see wanting to go back to the way I was eating, though. Not for the way I know my body can feel look and function now. 
My skin is disappointing me. To be honest the best thing is I don't think I've gotten one new pimple. The bad news is my face has scaring(purple marks) and stubborn pre-existing acne that just isn't moving. A lot of it has come to a head, looking like a breakout, but I know it was already there just not nearly as noticeable. Basically I feel the difference and don't see it so much. The mornings look good and by nightfall I feel like every blemish is magnified. Which makes me curious of I could find the culprit of my breakouts if cutting that out would eventually give me clear skin. Just longer than 30 days. 
Which makes me want to wait longer to reintroduce things but I'm not sure I'm that patient. 
I have to say as much as I've thrived on it, I have gotten frustrated with not licking the pb spoon or having bacon. 
It's been fun to never eat the crap I know will make me feel bad and not feeling like I need to. 
Also: it's really opened my eyes to how I emotionally deal with food.

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.


Anxiety.


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…
