It is officially Day 1!

 

This morning I had two egg frittatas with spinach, bell peppers, and turkey sausage. 

For my second meal I had lots of veggies, an apple, and a Larabar. 

I haven't eaten dinner yet because I am stuck at work late and unsure when I will get to. 

 

Day one has been good!

Your M1 looks good, though I don't see any added fat.  Your M2  - not so much.  Larabars are for emergencies only - like stuck in a plane on the tarmac for 4 hours emergency.  Each meal should follow the template - 1 to 2 palm sized portions of protein, fill your plate with veggies, add healthy fat.  Fruit is fine to eat, but it shouldn't push the veggies off your plate.

I get stuck at work late often.  Packets or cans of tuna packed in olive oil (tough to find water packed tuna that doesn't contain soy), hard boiled eggs, cans of olives are things I keep at my desk or in the office fridge for nights like that.  Hope you get home to eat soon.

What had been your plan for dinner if you hadn't gotten stuck at work?

I actually ended up getting stuck at work. I had a plate full of roasted veggies and grilled chicken. Luckily I work where food is served nightly to our guest. I did my best for being thrown a curve ball. I never stay late and I am never asked cover for people who are sick....except for last night so I guess never say never. 

I haven't had a ton of time this week to meal prep so I will be doing that heavily this weekend which will include some emergency meals!

Julie, 

Thank you so much for your feedback. I obviously am a newbie and learning as I go. Yesterday I ate more veggies in a day than I have ever ate in one day. I was very proud about that. I don't believe I ate anything that was not compliant but I do need to plan and prep better to be hitting the meal template. 

I didn't get to meal plan as much as I would have liked for the first week. I plan to heavily meal plan/prep Saturday and Sunday. I really am looking forward to this journey! Any suggestions for added fat in my breakfast?

@Taylor C.- Good for you for eating your veggies!  Getting the meal template down is a process.  I think you will find it easier once you knock out some food prep this weekend.

I add a tbsp or two of ghee to my scrambled eggs (I never get tired of eggs) or eat half an avocado.  I also like coconut oil in my coffee and will add a Tbsp if I am short on fat in my meal.  If you are making frittata, you could add some melted ghee to the eggs and I think it would work just fine.

Hope you enjoy your Whole 30 journey!

Day 5. 

 

I have felt pretty good this week. I think today has been the hardest. I had to make cupcakes for the movie night at work and pop fresh popcorn as well. I was huge snacker with an even bigger sweat tooth so the sugar cravings are real. I don't think I have hit the "kill all things" mode but maybe. 

A victory I have noticed is that I went wedding dress shopping today and I didn't body shame once. I didn't feel bloated and I knew I was eating what I was supposed to and I was able to find confidence in that.
