    This round has really been a round for trying new recipes. And I love it! I recognize that the global pandemic is tragic and is adversely impacting people all over the world, but working from home has been an enormous blessing for me. I have so much more time and because I'm not bouncing around living in two different cities, I feel inspired to try new recipes on the regular. It's so much fun! 
    For myself and for anyone else who reads this, I wanted to document three new favorites: 
    Sweet Potato Soup (5 Stars): http://meljoulwan.com/2013/01/02/paleo-sweet-potato-soup/ In N Out Double Double Animal Style Burger with Lettuce Bun (5+ Stars): https://40aprons.com/whole30-in-n-out-burgers/ Chicken Alfredo with Spaghetti Squash (4 Stars): https://www.paleorunningmomma.com/paleo-chicken-alfredo-with-spaghetti-squash-whole30/ I plan to eat the sweet potato soup every morning for the next 7 days and see how that affects my energy leves. I'm still struggling with energy this time around. But I recently realized that I used to eat sweet potatoes with a breakfast hash a lot on earlier rounds, something I no longer eat. So perhaps that has made a difference. Perhaps carb-dense vegetables early in the morning is a key for me. I'm going to give it a try and see how that goes!
    And let me just take a moment to talk about that In N Out burger... Oh. My. Wow. So good. Yum. I just can't even put into words how good that was. It was the onions. I could have eaten an entire bowl of them. I did eat several large spoonfulls... The sauce was meh. But those onions were pure happiness in my mouth. I shall be eating them again very soon! I'm not sure if I'm referring to the burgers with the onion or just the onions with that statement... 
    And a note to anyone reading this... if you think Whole30 food is bland or boring or uninteresting, you haven't found the right recipes! Because this stuff is as good as any rotation of recipes I've ever had in my entire life! Is it a lot of research and shopping and food prep and cleanup? Yes. Most definitely. But it is also delicious!! I love that food that makes me feel so good can be so damn tasty!

    I still continue to be disappointed that I don't have more energy  but I really think it might just be the intensity of my spiritual awakening and my increased sensitivity to the energy around me (meaning I'm connecting more with the overall negative energy associated with the global pandemic). 
    But... I looked up my max heart rate for my last three rides and it has gone down with each ride, despite maintaining the same speed! I also did a trail run last night and I felt good! So, my physical stamina and performance is improving, even if I'm not feeling it with my day-to-day energy levels! And that's okay!

    @SchrodingersCat Thank you! I appreciate you checking in to share your support! 
    @ShadowInTheKitchen Thank you! I'm definitely finding that my spiritual re-awakening and taking better care of my body go hand in hand. It's a big part of the alignment that I am seeking! And I totally agree that discovery of self is really the start of becoming something new! I'm excited for the journey to continue on both fronts! Thank you for your support and best wishes to you on your journey!

    Oh, I should also note that I ordered Michele Rosen's Paleo Baking at Home and once I get into the 170s, I fully plan to start incorporating healthy baking into my lifestyle. I expect that'll be another couple of months. It was delightful looking through the book and that fact is, I want sweet treats to be a part of my life. I just want to get to a reasonable weight first. And I'll need to set careful boundaries to help me with moderation, because I am most definitely an abstainer. I would say I'd read Food Freedom Forever, because I own it and it may have some helpful tips for me, but I have so many other books on my must-read list right now that it just isn't going to make it to the top anytime soon...

    @ShadowInTheKitchen Honestly, my comment about weightloss might not be entirely true. Every day is like groundhog day around here so it may just be that it feels slower. Alternatively, it could be that I've lost and re-gained the same weight so many times that my body is starting to resist... I'm honestly not sure, but I was definitely eating as poorly as I've ever eaten when I started this round so it wasn't that! Thank you for the encouragement! Best wishes to you as well!
    @Blueautumn Thank you for reading my entire journal! Wow! I'm glad you found some inspiration through my words and experience.

    Well, I had a false start there a few weeks. I stuck with it for a week and then reverted to the saddest of SAD eating for another week. I'm disappointed in myself but I'm also back again, so that counts for something! Here's to what will hopefully become a lifetime of healthier habits. I'm on Day 8 and feeling very, very tired. I hope my energy improves over the next week... On a good note, this is feeling very comfortable and I'm enjoying the food more than ever. Here are some of my new favorite recipes:

    ROUND 3, Day 15: Tuesday, September 16
    Meal 1: Wild Zora Butte Cacao Banana breakfast mix with flaxseed meal, nuts, bananas, strawberries, mango, and cacao nibs 
    Exercise (9 hours, 35 minutes): 6.38-mile, 6-pitch rock climb with 2,211 of elevation gain and topping out at 13,713 feet (131 average HR; 168 max HR)  
    Intra-Workout Snack: two pouches of peach, apricot, and banana baby food; two pouches of blueberry, pear, and purple carrot baby food; half blueberry RXBar; snack pack of coconut butter 
    Intra-Workout Meal 2: tuna pouch packed in olive oil  
    Meal 3: Wild Zora Caldera Chicken Curry freeze-dried meal with chicken, sweet potato, pineapple, spinach, bell pepper, and onion 
    Water Intake: unknown 
    Symptoms/NSVs:
    Poor fueling for long-duration exercise  Thoughts/Reflections: Well, despite my doubts yesterday, I did it! I made it to the [almost] top of Bear Creek Spire (I didn't get on top of the summit block because that's just stupid). And it was amazing! It was hard. Oh-so hard. But amazing. The climbing was challenging. The ridge traverse was exposed and super scary, but fun. The views were spectacular (I counted over 30 alpine lakes from the top). And I reached the highest point on earth I've ever been on! 
    It was the approach and the ridiculous descent that was so difficult for me. It was steep on the way up with some boulder hopping. That was hard. But the way down was downright scary. We had to descend a bouldery scree field where everything moved, even the giant blocks of granite. Guh. It was awful. I quite literally kept seeing images of me falling down the boulder field when I closed my eyes that night. Though I did make it out alright.
    On another note, my fueling strategy totally sucked. I watched as my guide happily ate cheese and salami and hard-boiled eggs and dehydrated mango and banana. And I had my stupid baby food pouches and packets of tuna and RXBars and coconut butter. Guh. It tasted so gross and I didn't want to eat any of it. But I needed to eat. But it wasn't enough anyway. There just wasn't enough calories in them. And then, when we got back to camp, I watched as she ate fresh rice with curry paste and peas and meat and naan. While I ate another freeze-dried meal. Guh.  
    So yeah, I don't know about being Paleo in the alpine. I know people do it. But I don't know if I want to. I'll finish my Whole30, but I think I'd rather eat differently on long days at high altitude....

    [Photo 2: looking down on part of the larger of the two boulder fields we had to go up and then down on the hike; this wasn't even the climbing part]

    Day 22. I feel really happy with how I'm eating. It feels totally do-able (though working from home sure helps) and I've been finding all sorts of delicious new recipes.  I truly and genuinely like eating this way. I'm eating food that nourishes my body. It feels good. My body feels good. My knee pain is virtually gone and I'm feeling leaner. Though the weight loss seems to be happening more slowly than in previous rounds. My skin is super clear. I have very few cravings. I'm good. I'm feeling good. 
    I could probably still eat more greens and drink more water. I'll try to monitor that more closely this week. My biggest "complaint" is that I still struggle with energy. I'm just so tired. And exercising is tough, though I do it. 
    Anyway, here are some new recipes I plan to try this week. I'll report back with how I like each of them!

    @BabyBear Of course! You're welcome! She is a recent discovery for me so it's been fun to experiment! My previous go-to bloggers have been Paleo Running Momma and Mel Joulwan. Her Chic-fil-A sauce is something else! I might just drink it as soup sometime! LOL. I don't normally like making my own condiments (I normally buy) but that one is definitely worth it. I can't wait to try her P.F. Chang's Lettuce Wraps because I love, love, love those!

    It sounds like you're doing great! Keep up the good work. I love seeing your list of NSVs each day!
