I have just one week of my Whole30 left! Honestly, I am ready for it to be over but, not for the reasons you are thinking. Like I mentioned last week, this Whole30 hasn’t been too difficult for me because it isn’t much different than how I usually eat anyways. I do miss the occasional glass of wine and Artic Zero ice cream, though…. and gluten free pizza…. I swear my cravings are under control 😉
The reason I am ready for my Whole30 to be over is because I don’t feel it is fully fueling me for my daily activity level. Before my Whole30, I was eating close to 200 grams of carbs on days I lifted and I probably should have been eating more. I can tell my recovery has been a bit slower, also due to the lack in carbs. I’m not a giver upper, so I will finish my Whole30 strong! I think this week I need to buy more plantains and tatoes!
Wow, I just sat here for a good 5 minutes trying to think what I meal prepped last week. I can’t remember a single thing I ate last week… #fail. I ate some fish one night, I know that. Thursday night I had dinner with a bestie of mine and had a lettuce wrap burger with bacon, egg and avocado! I ate way more nuts last week than I have ate in a really long time! Things are starting to come back to me, if you couldn’t tell… When I first started paleo, like a lot of newbies, I ate nuts on nuts on nuts. And of course, I developed a slight intolerance to them so I try not to eat a lot of them. Except for last week.. oops.. Well, I honestly can’t remember anything else. Am I pregnant? Why am I forgetting things lately?
I kid I kid. Definitely NOT pregnant.
Guys, it’s fricken November! That means the holidays are on their way and all the temptations that they bring with them. To make the holiday season healthier and less tempting to eat a pan of Christmas cookies daily, a friend and I have teamed up and started a Holiday Survival Accountability Group. We will have weekly challenges where you can win stuff and we will also have daily information for you like recipes, workouts, health tips and more! This will be held in a facebook group so you can be anywhere and still join in the fun! If you are looking for more information or to join us, shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t handle the holiday temptations alone, join our group!
Ages ago, a friend asked me to make a fajita recipe and I finally got around to it. Meaning, I finally remembered her request. These are PERFECT for meal prep because you just throw everything in your crockpot and go on with your merry day. If you can slice and dice, you can make this recipe!
