My Whole30 - Day 6
This morning I woke up exhausted, probably from the action packed weekend and all of the driving. I missed my early morning Spin class and kept snoozing. After I got my butt in gear, there was a ton of stuff to do for work and I didn't get a chance to make breakfast. The fridge was pretty empty and I needed to get to the grocery store fast. My original plan was to go to the grocery store after the 6:30am Spin, but like I said, that never happened. So my energy was low, I was feeling kind of lazy, and I had a couple of thoughts of going off Whole30.
Oh, normally on days like this I would just make some toast with PB.
That would be easy right now.
Or grab a quick bowl of cereal, that would have been nice.
I tried my best to rebuke those thoughts.
DAY 6 - WHOLE30 EATS
Since I needed to quickly put something good in my mouth before I threw some bread in the toaster, I went for one of the Larabars I had picked up the day before at Whole
|Lemon bar was REALLY good. I liked it better than the "Banana Bread" one I tried previously.|
|I know it looks kind of weird, but it was GOOD. And filled me up.|
Seeing all of the fresh veggies from local farms was so exciting and got me re-motivated to stay on plan. I couldn't wait to get home to cook up some of the fresh and organic produce I kept piling into my cart. I also found a ton of beautifully packaged and reasonably priced organic, grass-fed beef and pork as well as some deli meat that didn't have any additives. You know your sliced turkey is minimally processed when it only has 3 ingredients: organic turkey, water and salt. Sounds like a good, quick source of protein for my Whole30!
Check out some of my items:
|Have you ever seen such cute and oddly shaped tomatoes in your life? Or a cauliflower bigger than your own head?|
|It's incredible how deeply red and lean these cuts of meat were. Extremely tasty too.|
On another note, someone asked what I have been drinking with my meals. I am drinking only water and I had black coffee a few times last week. But that isn't a huge change for me. I've always been a big water drinker. I'm just not having the occasional diet beverage that I used to have. You can have club soda or all natural sparkling water (read the labels - no added sugar or artificial sweeteners allowed!)
Again, refilling my fridge with good eats has rekindled my Whole30 fire. I know I can do this and preparation is key. I can't let myself get to a point where I don't have good choices in front of me to choose from, like this morning. If it wasn't for having that Larabar, I might have caved in. But there is no room for failure here.
Tomorrow will be Day 7.
I'm almost 1/4 way done!
