So…I survived day 1 wooooohooo! According to It Starts with Food and at least 10 different blogs I’ve read about Whole30, today and tomorrow are supposed to be the easiest days lol REALLY?!? If that’s the case then I have a very long road ahead of me. Don’t get me wrong, there’s no turning back and I am 100% definitely seeing this through to the very end but today wasn’t all that easy… just sayin’.
Pre 7am workout: modified monkey salad (coconut chips, banana, blackberries, raspberries)
Post workout: 2 hard-boiled eggs with a side of raw red/green bell peppers
Lunch: Spinach chicken salad with hearts of palm, beets & cherry tomatoes. I used a compliant, homemade Avocado dressing that really spiced things up: http://www.negharfonooni.com/2013/01/07/tangy-avocado-dressing/
Dinner: Organic sausage, brussels and asparagus (in my ghee, caper, lemon, cilantro sauce to die for)
The good part? All of the food tasted great! I can imagine how eating like this every day would leave you feeling pretty damn good. The bad part? I’d be lying if I said those doughnuts sitting in the kitchen at the office all day weren’t flirting with me from 9:00-5:00 and when I say flirting I mean actually begging me to get into bed with them. I didn’t do it. I won’t do it. I mean, I never was a one night stand kind of girl. In all seriousness, the temptation is all around and I already know what i’ll miss most, who am I kidding, I already miss it- RED WINE! WHITE WINE! CHAMPAGNE! Oh I already long for thee…
Okay so Day 1: I really do feel positive and totally up for the challenge but I also know that the next few weeks are going to be hellish. I’m looking forward to feeling better.
