    Day 7: June 23
    Feelings: gloriously deflated as of this morning, turns out that drinking water helps you feel less puffy, more energetic, and less bloated.  WHO KNEW.  Up 2.5 lbs since beginning of the 1st trimester to alllmost the end of it.  Waking up in the morning and can't quite suck everything in anymore.  Trying to get used to this ever-changing body while being the ultimate host for this baby by eating and drinking all the "right" things.  Feels almost like another full-time job, but so is parenting, so I'll consider this the internship phase.  
    M1: 2 eggs + coffee
    M2: Evergreens salad (take-out)...romaine + arugula + roasted broccoli + cherry tomatoes + HB egg + sunflower seeds + chopped chicken breast + oil + vinegar Tastes so nice, I'm having it twice (in two days)
    M3: 1 oz macadamia nuts + carrot sticks + prunes prunes: not just for old people
    M4: Buffalo Chicken Meatballs + roasted broccoli anything "buffalo" is a hit in this household, especially cauliflower.  But alas, your girl needs protein.

    You are off to a great start here! I Hope your chicken cutlets were gloriously overcooked

    Day 1: June 17
    Feelings: SO excited for day 1 while also feeling rather puffy-faced from last night's snack of 1 pint of raspberry Talenti and almond butter toast x 3 (whoa.) 
    Going to try out a "4-meal" meal plan, as pregnancy has me feeling really full after meals.  Spreading it out over 4 meals should help?
    M1: 2 eggs + 1/2 large apple + 1.5 Tbsp almond butter + coffee realized this meal should've included vegetables...oops.
    M2: Roasted Cauliflower Soup + 4-5 oz chicken breast overcooked the chicken to what most people would find inedible, as there is no greater pregnancy food aversion to me than appropriately-cooked chicken 
    M3: 1 oz macadamia nuts + carrot sticks + decaf iced coffee + prenatal vitamins + a nap
    M4: 5-6 oz. Copper River salmon + mixed green salad need to find a way to disguise some of this protein into a mixed dish meal...this "hunk of protein + veggies" thing can't continue.

    Starting Whole 30 tomorrow, 6/17. Eager to complete my 1st ever Whole30 from 10.5-14.5 weeks pregnant!
    Curious to find out how early pregnancy symptoms can be helped out by Whole30- haven't been nauseous or sick in these first 10 weeks, just so, so exhausted.  Pre-Whole30, I've been guilty of not drinking enough water, not prioritizing vegetables/fiber, and mindlessly snacking in the afternoon into the evening.  I am a creature of routine and look forward to making my life a bit easier with the structure of Whole30.  Prior to getting pregnant, the "no drinking" and "social eating" aspects of Whole30 were always the most daunting to me.  Now with COVID and pregnancy, I ironically have never thought of a better time to lean into the program wholeheartedly and give it my all.
    Pregnancy is tough enough and I'm not interested in poor food choices making it harder.  Whole30 is just the "reset" my lifestyle needs to cruise me into the 2nd trimester feeling more energetic and confident.
