Day 27: so, in general I think I did pretty good. A few things could have been better. As I flow into the next few weeks (following Jan. Whole30) I can try to improve those rough spots.

Day 29: last night walked to yoga, so I would not have to drive in snow.  It felt good to walk, actually.

snack after yoga:  more beef and veggies, and sweet potato chips, peppermint tea.


Day 30!!!! Woot! I am glad that I decided to keep going, as I am having ups and downs with feeling good and not so good. Fortunately, the good is outnumbering the less good. I feel like I am thinner, and my belly is flatter. Joints not stiff and sore all day, just a bit in the morning. No pain meds needed so that is REALLY good. So far today is good.

Meal 1: almost put off eating since I couldn't think of what I am in the mood for. But I nibbled some roasted brussel sprouts and that woke up my taste buds.

So, Leftover roast beef, brussel sprouts, 1/2 avocado w/fresh lime juice squeezed over all veg. Nettles-peppermint tea. Coffee w coc cream, banana w sunbutter. Pretty good meal!

Day 31:

Meal 1: smoked white fish, kraut, sweet potato kugel, gingered zucchini soup, coffee w coc cream, tea

I'm thinking eggs may not be my friend. Feeling a little sore this morning. Didn't go to yoga yesterday or today. Supposed to go w some friends to lunch. Steak and veggies for Meal 2 I guess! I think I will walk indoors at the mall, since I need to go to the art store anyway. Maybe a little yoga at home later....?

Meal 3: whatever needs to finishing before I start the big cookup tonight. Maybe kale, roasted cumin carrots, beef and chicken legs. Sounds good already.
