Maggie's Whole30

Recommended Posts

DAY 44:

Earlier this week I started a blog to capture elements of my W30 and other things going on in my life. I haven't told anyone about it yet, but figured I'd share it here first in case anyone wants to check it out... Here's to spreading the good food word! Lol :)

Here's the link: http://mequalsone.com/

Sleep: 9 hours

What I ate:

Post-run: banana, leftover chicken breast

Brunch: small spinach omelet, deviled egg, sausage, smoked salmon, grilled zucchini, mushrooms, artichoke hearts

Snack: baby carrots and broccoli with guacamole, apple

Dinner: browned ground beef, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, apple

Breakdown:

2,163 calories, 137.5g fat (57%), 136.9g carbs (23%), 113.2g protein (21%)

Exercise:

45-minute run. I didn't measure how far I ran, but I'd guess something around 4 miles.

Thanks guys! :rolleyes:

DAY 45:

Sleep: 8 hours

What I ate:

Meal 1: 2 eggs over 1/4 cup ground beef, raw zucchini, bone broth, mint verbena tea

Meal 2: turmeric-spiced sliders (no bun), raw mushrooms, grape tomatoes, baby carrots

Meal 3: pork roast with apple and sweet potato

Exercise:

Power clean practice: 55#(3) -- 75#(3) -- 95#(1) -- 105#(F) ... I couldn't get quite the form down. I've had an easier time doing hang cleans at 105#, and today it just felt heavy and awkward. Need to practice the first pull.

Then:

3 rounds: 500m run, 30 box jumps, 30 kettlebell swings -- I had a couple of bloody falls doing box jumps (20" and 24") over the summer and I'm still working up the courage to start doing them again. I subbed step-ups on a 20" box tonight. The WOD took me 16:46 (12kg KB)

Love the look of your eats Maggie and the fact that you're getting the all important rest day and 8+ hours of sleep in. Awesome job! :D

Thanks Jenny! The sleep is taking such a huge, concerted effort but it's been totally worth it. I feel amazing after the last couple of weeks of sleeping like a normal person :)

DAY 55:

My W30 almost ended today! I volunteered at work to test hot peppers for a video project. My mouth was on fire and I came *this* close to taking a sip of milk or a cracker to dull the burning. Luckily one of the peppers numbed my mouth, negating the need for milk ;) Can't believe Day 55 is done...

Exercise:

Kipping pullup practice for 15 mins: I still haven't gotten my first pullup, but I got closer than ever today! I've been slacking on “Project Pullup†the last couple of weeks but this was the motivation to get back on it.
