Whole 30 day 5

Another day down!  Whoo hoo!  Today my energy level was much better.  Still tired, but manageable.  The girls at work said I actually didn’t have bags under my eyes today!  I also realized today that I never really explained what whole 30 is all about (probably due to my extreme exhaustion).  It is a paleo based diet/challenge but even more restricted.  I have taken on the challenge of eating only meat and plants (fruits and vegetables).  No dairy, no beans, no grains, no sugar (of any kind, even the artificial type).  It has definitely been a challenge, but very doable as long as you have enough willpower and plan plan plan.  It is supposed to rid your body of all the toxins and cravings.  It makes sense to me.  Cut out all processed foods.

My breakfast today was seriously so freaking good and yet so simple. It will be a breakfast standby, for sure.  Two boiled eggs, a chopped tomato, and avocado.  YUM!!!!

Lunch was a salad with chicken.  I made homemade creamy Italian dressing (using my homemade mayo…which is better than Dukes, I kid you not).  That was the highlight of the salad.  I really miss my weird salads.  I don’t like the typical salad made with carrots and broccoli, etc..  Give me an apple, goat cheese, almond salad any day!

We had a hot dog dinner at church tonight so I came prepared.  I made a chicken stir fry with cauliflower rice.  It was pretty good.  I got a lot of weird stares, but I don’t care.  There were SO many tempting foods there, but luckily it was super crowded and I don’t do crowds very well.  Kept me out of the kitchen, no problem.

My daily email yesterday said I may have strange dreams about food and I thought, “whatever!”  So what kind of dream did I have last night?  I dreamt I ate a granola bar by accident and wanted to cry when I realized I messed up and had to start all over at day 1 again!  So far those emails have been spot on.

Ready for another day tomorrow!
