Kirsten's Whole30

Recommended Posts

Following Paleo template for the past 40 days or so. I was feeling great. Started slipping a bit about 10 days ago and then went on a week long camping vacation. Gave myself the week off. What was I thinking? I ate things I normally wouldn't have even before Paleo. Disgusting. I came home yesterday feeling bloated, disgusting, fat and depressed. Jumped into whole 30 today. No excuses.


2 poached eggs

Mean green juice

Pineapple, a couple chunks

Iced coffee with coconut milk


Filet mignon

Baby spinach salad with strawberries, red onion and balsamic glaze


Rotisserie chicken breast

I may start clucking after eating all that chicken. It was a busy day that iwas barely home so I'm glad I managed as well as I did. I definitely am craving an after dinner sweet. I'd love a square of dark chocolate but I know it will do me know good. I also peed all say! Definitely drank a lot of water.

Spent the whole morning cooking. Tonight I go back to work after a lovely vacation. I work 12 hr overnight shifts as an ER nurse and usually my first night on equates to being awake for 25+ hours. It's my flip day. I wanted to make sure I would have everything prepped to get through the next three overnights. I cooked all morning.

Nonnompaleo's spicy tuna cakes...OMG so good served with Mango salsa

turkey breakfast sausage

Oven roasted Brussel sprouts

Sautéed baby bellas and baby book choy

Sweet potato


Filet mignon

Add to that the rotisserie chicken I have on standby, some fruit, salad and nuts and there is no reason to be worried about what to eat the next few days. Feeling a sense of accomplishment.

Probably more nuts than I should be eating but I am at work and avoiding the cheesecake brought in from a coworker and the vending machine/coffee shop trips. Overall I am pleased. Baby steps
