Whole30 Day23

Something I started undervaluing around mid month: water.
For the duration of the week(and hopefully so on) I will be treating it like liquid gold. My skin is less bright & I'm dehydrated during workouts. I notice when I drink a lot of water my cravings tend to be more under control, my energy levels get higher, and my skin is less acne prone. 
So there's my sales pitch on agua. 

Today I had three premade egg muffins some decaf coffee topped with caffinated, and not too long after had some strawberries & bananas with a side of almond butter. 
Lunch involved turkey salad, a Granny Smith apple, some carrots and guac, and broccoli. 
I got super hungry early afternoon and started munching on carrots with guac. I started realizing very quickly is easily eat the rest of the guacamole and still be hungry. So I got a heaping spoonful of almond butter for myself and was satisfied. I'm getting better at this ;)
I missed my workout yesterday and keep wavering back and fourth about going tonight. I've got a sick kiddo who really just needs me and my face is breaking out agian(more like one that is giving me a fat lip and the rest already existing just shining red like billboards) it just sounds nice to stay in. And since right now I'm ok with doing anything like that I think I will. 
I also ended up having a whole bottle of kombucha today. And half a Lara bar for a pre workout. My post workout was a baby food pouch and dinner was sweet potato hash with three eggs. Then about an hour later I had carrots with guac again. I have got to be eating too much...? No? I only eat when I'm hungry...

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…
