Paleo challenge: day 10

From Jan 1 – 31 I’m doing a strict paleo (Whole30) challenge with my CrossFit box. I decided to journal the month in food on here (in addition to normal posting) after getting a huge positive response on my Facebook page. I’m also going to detail the amount of sleep I got, the workout for the day and any other relevant notes. I’ll only detail drinks when it’s something other than water or tea, but note that I typically drink 80-100 ounces of water a day. I’ll link to recipes (either mine or other people’s) when applicable, but I don’t usually cook from recipes for myself so if you leave a comment asking for the recipe for something, there is none unless otherwise noted.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Notes for the day:

Today, I ate 2 of my 3 meals out of tupperware. I waited almost 3 hours after waking up before eating breakfast (in an attempt to not be hungry by 9am if I ate at 5:45am) and therefore almost forgot to take a picture in my ravenous state. I drank coffee out of a Snap-on mug. I ate the same.exact.lunch. for the third day in a row. And, I wanted to kill about 56 people on the road in fits of road rage. I’m thankful this company meeting is over and life is back to normal tomorrow.

    I’m so intrigued by this Whole 30 program and want to try it (and therefore scour through all your posts on it :)). However, I’m not willing to give up alcohol for 30 days. I know, I sound like I have a problem but the issue is I have a family girls trip and I know we’ll be drinking wine and I don’t want to miss out.
    Thoughts on doing the whole 30—- with wine?

      I think you could totally do it with wine if you wanted. Whole30 is quite specific about what you can/can’t do and wine (even cooking with it) is out. However, my gym is actually NOT doing a Whole30. They’re allowing 5 drinks a week (probably b/c most are like 23-26, single and actually have a social life) and allowing paleo “desserts” to be consumed whereas Whole30 doesn’t even want you recreating desserts even if they’re paleo. I’m being more strict in my challenge than the gym and cutting out alcohol. 1. b/c I have no social life and cutting out the glass of wine here or there for me isn’t hard. 2. b/c if I’m going to do this, I kinda just want to go all out. I AM however, allowing myself to eat a paleo “dessert”. So I guess you could say I’m not technically doing a Whole30, but that’s the only deviation I’m taking. I just feel like the dessert thing makes sense for people who need to radically change their relationship with food, but I’m personally past that in my “journey” and find that restriction just ridiculous and unnecessary. All this to say, your “whole30″ can be what you make of it and if that means a glass of wine here and there, go for it. I think the benefits will still greatly outweigh the minimal alcohol. :)

    You are such an inspiration with your health goals! You’re already 10 days in! :) I hear you about road rage. I’m fairly certain everyone is mentally challenged on the road in the morning. And that they’ve forgotten how to read or tell red from green.

    Every recipe that I have tried from your blog I have loved! I would like to try the paleo almond/coconut flour breakfast bake. Would you post the ingredients? And FYI…the pumpkin pancake is amazing. Thanks for all the great ideas!
