Sleep: Not very good. I usually am not one that wakes up at night & last night I woke up multiple times and tossed and turned All. Night. Long. Makes for a tireddddd morning.

Sleep:. Last night I dreamt I made cookies for the hubby and then licked the spoon :o  :o :o  

I dreamed that I ate fried chicken and I was appalled because (in the dream) hubby was telling me to go ahead and eat it as no-one would know. Yikes!

Mood: I was a bit stressed, but that was because I knew I was traveling and going to be gone this weekend.  I drove for 6 hours after work to head back home to spend the weekend with my family, so exercise didn't happen.  It was extremely difficult not to snack while driving and not being able to pop a piece of gum in my mouth.  I did sneak 2 closed handfuls of cashews and 1 That's It Fruit Bar before I had my on-the-go dinner.  I think long drives is where my snacking is the worst. Hopefully on Sunday I will be able to control it better.


 


Sleep: Pretty good.

Mood: Happy, happy, happy.  Proud of how disciplined I have been while traveling. Family tradition on Mothers Day means I make a ton of homemade cinnamon rolls (the Pioneer Woman recipe). Not only did I not eat one, I didn't even sneak a taste of the frosting while making it.  It was a little strange cooking something and not being able to check the flavors, but it seemed to work out because the rolls were gone extra quick! For lunch, we went to a local restaurant where they were doing a buffet style brunch.  It was super difficult not diving into my normal favorites, but I stuck to what I knew was safe. Sadly, it wasn't much more than some beef and fruit, but I made it work.


 


Sleep: Excellent!

Drank: 120 oz H20


 


Exercise: Nada... :(


 


Mood: I was tired, but I know that was from my busy traveling schedule.  I was real unhappy I didn't get to sneak a work out in, but it was either work out and have no meals ready for this week or go grocery shopping and get some meal prep done.  Yesterday was the first time I really dug into the recipe section of The Whole 30 & I was incredibly impressed by just our one meal last night,  I believe the rest of the weeks meals come out of it & can't see what goodies to discover.  To save the TMI details, I am definetly following right along with the timeline, these days aren't all that fun.  Ready to get past it and fly through day 10 +11.  So far it has not been that difficult, there are moments when I really just wanted to eat something (like the 7 tins of homemade cinnamon rolls I made), but I have powered through and that's a good feeling.  The only thing I have been craving is BBQ sauce; weird I know.  But tonight for dinner I am giving the baby back ribs a go and making the compliant BBQ sauce to go with it.


 


Sleep: Pretty good, but I wasn't in bed till after midnight; that's LLAATTEE for me. I have been waking up about 45 mins before my alarm, but I love my sleep and always manage to fall back asleep until my alarm.

Sleep: Slept good, but was a bit tired still from my late night.

Drank: 120 oz. of H20

 

Exercise: 3.50 mile run which was horrible! I was slow and struggled the whole time!

 

Mood: I SKIPPED A MEAL! So annoyed with myself, totally spaced it on packing my lunch for work.  We were shorthanded so I didn't have time to run home for lunch.  Thankfully I had an extra banana that I didn't eat for breakfast. Maybe that's why I felt so BLAH during my workout.  I did have my normal surge of energy later that evening so I cleaned out the garage, swept it out (enough sweeping to have some blisters this morning) & started getting a spot ready to make it my work out haven.

 

Sleep: Great. Except my vivid dreams seem to always be happening right when my alarm clock goes off leaving me in a head fog when I wake up.  This morning I was having a dream about playing softball with my old high school team.

Mood: Tonight we met some friends at our local watering hole, making it the first friend gathering in since starting the Whole30. It was really strange not having a drink and strongly realized what a social drinker I am. I downed at least 5 glasses of water, just to have something to do.  They ordered an array of bar food and was so hard not to mindlessly grab a handful and start snacking, but I didn't! I was really glad I ate beforehand or that fried food would have KILLED me!

 

Sleep: Pretty a ok.

Mood: Happy, energetic and just overall feeling GOOD!  We had another gathering to go to at my in laws, so I had a sweet potato beforehand, just in case there weren't many options. Thankfully they had a great veggie tray (I think I ate half of it), plus some awesome tri tip, seasoned with complaint yumminess (I checked the labels :P) & then snuck a couple grilled pieces of pineapple off the grill (before they were consumed by a insanely delicious smelling NON compliant sauce).  I brought my handy little mason jar bottle which has been a life saver & got my H20 intake done easily.

 

Sleep: Soo good! Even woke up before my alarm (that never happens on the weekend!)

Finally got to go grocery shopping and did about 2 hours worth of meal prep-Woohoo!

 

Sleep: Had a dream that I ate something like a twinkie (I am not sure what exactly it was, but similar) like it was no big deal & as if it was compliant.  I didn't start feeling upset until a while later realizing it had SUGAR in it (not to mention all the other junk).  I remember feeling overwhelmed at the thought of starting over again; boy was I happy that was only a dream... On to day 15!

Exercise: MY WEIGHTS ARE HERE!

post-93937-0-09124600-1463494132_thumb.j

I finally got all my stuff and got my power rack set up and started using it asap. Warmed up with 10 mins of jump rope (when did jump rope become so hard?!?) Did 3X10 of squats, bench, and rows + 2X12 of calf raises.

 

Mood: Funkyyyyy day! Felt tired the second my alarm went off and felt like that for the rest of the day.  My stomach was in a horrible state, hence such a crappy lunch. I couldn't think of stomaching much more & barely choked what I did eat down.  I am not sure if it has something to do with curry (I never eat it) or a combo of things. I was fairly hungry when dinner time rolled around, but when I started fixing my plate I got that yuck feeling again. I did eat it and then a while later I went and worked out. Tired, headache and just plain grouchy. Hoping tomorrow will go better. :angry:  :angry: :angry:  

 

Sleep: Couldn't fall asleep.  I usually try to be in bed my 10:30, but lately not falling asleep till after 11 or even midnight.  Not sure why, I am usually the type of person that can sleep anytime, anywhere.

Mood: Felt lots better today.  I still hate waking up in the mornings.  But love how much more energetic I feel in the afternoons after I get off work.  When I got home I was in one of those moods where I *pre whole30* would have munched on anything and everything I found that was sweet.  Not that I was even craving it, it would just be something that was.... there & that I thought I wanted.  I am not sure how to explain. But instead I jumped into some kitchen chores, threw on some energetic music, hopped in my cute new work out clothes & went on with my day! Good to know I have made it half way and am now on the down hill slide :D  :D

 

Sleep: Wayyyyy better. Fell asleep quickly and stayed like that until my alarm.. Boo!

I am starting to re-read the reintroduction phase and have been scouring the forums, for anything that will be helpful with life after Whole30.

 

Sleep: So good.  Had some crazy weird dreams! But feel asleep quicker than I have been the last few nights.

-Thai Cucumber Cups

*I didn't use the cucumbers and instead just spooned this over a ton of spinach and kale....So GOOD! Hubby put it in a tortilla (obviously he's not Whole30), its a versatile recipe!

 

Drank: 140 oz. of H20

 

Exercise: 3.17 mile run with Fast Intervals

 

Mood: Feeling good.  No crazy TIGER BLOOD, but just overall feeling... GOOOOOD! Clothes fit amazing, I know pounds and inches have came off. I have energy, no crazy cravings.. Sometimes I just cant believe that me, Miss Sweet Tooth, hasn't died without her sugar, I am so insanely excited about that part! My skin seems better, I usually get a couple break outs but so far its be very neutral. However, I have horrible circulation, to the point where my hands are always cold...Like I hate to shake peoples hands because 9 out of 10 times the other person comments on my hand temperature.  I was hoping that maybe the Whole30 would help me with that problem, but I have yet to see any change with that.

 

Sleep: So good! I just reallllly dislike waking up in the mornings. Once I am up and out of bed, I am fine, but sheesh that first initial step of waking up, I HATE!
