Good Morning! I hope everyone is having a great morning so far! I woke up this morning feeling pretty awesome and VERY excited that I took the time to pack my breakfast and lunch for today last night. Yesterday was my first day back at work in two weeks and I was pretty nervous about how I would do with my food plan. I told my coworkers and friends in the building right away what I was doing and answered questions, and explained why I would do something so crazy. Then, I made myself a cup of earl grey tea and got back to work.
My day itself went really well. I made two scrambled eggs with roasted potatoes and salsa for breakfast and packed a bunch of snacks to last all day. For lunch I had chili and was stuffed until about 6pm! After making dinner I did a little food prep that should help me throughout the rest of the week. I cooked up what remaining compliant bacon I have (only 3 pieces), made a head of cauliflower rice and made my breakfast for today (1/6/15). I was still a little sleepy last night and ended up falling asleep on the couch while watching “Ride Along” with Chris. I slept really well and woke up to my alarm this morning at 6:30am.
Things I have been enjoying: fresh veggies, cauliflower rice (NEVER thought I would say that), pineapple. Coconut curry shrimp! My dinner last night was awesome! I used this recipe but omitted anything not whole30 approved and subbed in shrimp.
Things I miss: milk & sugar in coffee, wine, peanut butter.
How I have been feeling: Still really good! I feel smaller. I don’t know how to explain it. I feel less puffy and bloated than I have in a long time. I can’t puff my stomach up like I used too (is that gross?) and just overall awesome. I don’t miss the things I used to crave as much. I really am just thoroughly enjoying how I am feeling.
