Day 1: I’m feeling pretty good. Pretty baller, actually. My coffee was terrible with a splash of coconut milk this morning. I brewed some creme brûlée flavored stuff this afternoon and it’s way better black. Is that even allowed? Whoops. My meals were all really good, but I’d love some dark chocolate.
Breakfast: Frittata Muffins, cantaloupe
Lunch: Oriental Chicken Salad (I added some regular lettuce and broccoli slaw instead of purple cabbage in the recipe) *Edit – this recipe isn’t on her site anymore, but there’s a link where you can download this recipe.
Dinner: Flank steak, asparagus and cherry tomatoes, roasted sweet potato wedges
Snack: Banana with almond butter
Day 2: I’m surprised that I don’t feel starving. I did notice last night that my wedding ring slid right off at bedtime without it’s normal nighttime tightness. I do have a little bit of a headache, but maybe I’m detoxing?
Breakfast: Scramble with peppers, onions and spinach. Side of 1/2 avocado and sautéed potato rounds.
Lunch: Salad with leftover flank steak, cherry tomatoes, boiled egg, avocado, green beans, pecans and homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
Dinner: Wild salmon with mango salsa, roasted potatoes and green beans.
Snack: Lemon bar Larabar
Day 3: I’m in the mad at everyone phase. I thought it took longer for that? Haha. I have a headache and feel bloated. Which is so not cool. Doesn’t help that The Hubs is gone and I’m solo momming it tonight!
Day 4: My head didn’t hurt at all until a little at night. I ate a ton of snacks today, but I’m not giving myself a hard time for that. It’s all healthy and I’m breastfeeding, so lay off me! (I kid!)
Day 5: I feel really good. I feel alert and wide awake, even though I wake up 4-5 (or 12) times a night with Lincoln. My stomach is flat and my headache is gone completely. I went through Target today and felt so good for not buying crap! Then I headed to the car and ate the salad I packed for a busy day.
Day 6: The Hubs threatens to quit all the time, which is tempting…but I feel good. I’m wanting to see it through. I feel like my head is less itchy, surprisingly. Not less flaky, so we’ll see what time does for that.
FYI, tomorrow’s post was written far before Whole30 started. You’ll see why! 🙂
