Hey y’all, happy WIAW!It’s a new round of celebrating us foodies and the marvelous fact that we eat. Hosted by Jen over at Peas and Crayons, thank you!!
So if you read Monday’s post, you know I am taking 2 challenges right now. The Whole30 and the #RESTWEEK.
So far, both of the challenges go really well. I was scared of struggling and I thought I have to drag me through them each day, but it’s not like that at all! I am much more relaxed than I thought about the workout thing, I love the feeling of not having to run to the gym, or getting up a certain time. I do a soft Yoga routine every morning, I cycle to work and I go for walks and do foam rolling stretching, these are my ‘workouts’ for this week.
The Whole30 food isn’t too much of a difference to what I ate before. I eat less, and my yogurt/curd cheese, chocolate and drinks are cut out. I can live with that, especially when it is only for 30 days. I never ate much grains, so cutting them out is not a change for me.
I hope it continues like this!
Now you want to see what my foods are from yesterday, so here we go:
I didn’t do a routine yesterday morning, instead I slept till SEVEN. Considering that I normally get up at 5:15, this was heavenly. I felt hypoglycemic and made sure I have food real soon:
YES, I eat strawberries with eggs. Strange? Maybe. But gooood!!
Lunchtime, I went for a walk on the treadmill. How depressing. But it was pouring rain outside and I wanted to walk a little. I watched some TV and walked easily for 30 minutes, followed by a long foam rolling/stretching session. It felt SO.GOOD.
I had lunch ready in the office, packed the evening before…..
Doing the Whole30 you’re supposed to eat 3 meals and no snacks. This is a bit hard. But I also realize, that I snack a lot out of boredom and not because I am truly hungry. Yesterday though, I WAS hungry, even hangry and reached out for a spoon right out of the jar from this deliciousness:
After cycling home in the rain, I packed the food I prepped for my evening at my friend’s place and prepared it for the 2 of us there. We curled up on the couch, enjoyed dinner, chatted and watched shows (old SATC shows….LOOOOOVE). Perfect low key girlsnight!
There you have it, one day of Whole30!
What was the best thing you ate yesterday?
