Day 1

 

Meal 1:

2.5 c. steamed vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, baby carrots)

6 oz. roasted chicken breast (with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper)

 

Meal 2:

salad (romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, shredded carrots, celery, sage)

~6 oz. roasted chicken breast

 

snack:

small bag of Trader Joe's sweet baby bell peppers 

~1/4 c. grilled steak cubes (preparing beef stew) 

 

Exercise: 35 min/5k elliptical; 5x3 sets of push ups; core strength 

 

Notes:

1. I know that there's sort of a lack of fat here--I had to pack meals to take with me and forgot to bring extra olive oil for salad dressing. However, I felt really satiated all day. 

2. Normally, I would probably be hungry and have a third meal right about now (7:30pm), but I'm just not hungry at all. Might eat again before bed if I feel hungry. 

3. Drank about 3/4 gallon of water throughout the day.

Breakfast sounds really substantial. Congrats. Lunch sounds kind of light. Salads tend to be light, so you didn't get much with the chicken. Your snack is kind of taking the place of supper, but of course it is way too small. Trusting your feelings about whether you have had enough to eat is not always a good idea as you begin a Whole30. You may need to pay attention to the meal template and eat the minimum recommended amount whether you feel hungry or not.
