Day 10

I am amazed by these things:

1. I feel great!

2. I have such a great attitude and disposition I wonder if my employees are thinking they got a new boss.

3. Food tastes a lot better it makes me pause and appreciate it so much more!

4. My appetite or 'need' for food or desire to over eat is gone.

5. Not so stressed and that truly amazes me.

So anyway here is today's food:

B: three hard boiled eggs/ grapefruit

L: shrimp ceviche salad some butternut squash

D- Nom Nom's crab cakes, salad and home made tartar sauce.

( so proud that I made home made mayo and it was soooo good. Thanks Melissa "Well Fed!"

Yesterday just sucked!! Bad day at work so stressful. ( I manage a grocery store) so holidays including Super Bowl, are not 'fun.' Not to mention horrible headache which I still have today. Thank God no tequila in the house or I might have been in trouble.

What I did eat: (which isn't a lot because I was nauseous from the headache)

B: 2 eggs

D- steak salad with guacamole lots of veggies

Then herbal chamomile tea then off to bed.

Today isn't starting of great, but I did put a pork shoulder in the slow cooker a la Well Fed Italian pork roast. So at least I have a plan.

B- 2 eggs

L- nada nothing zip zero

D- grilled tri-tip yummmm made sweet potato chips (quite a success) guacamole so dinner was good.

Herbal tea as I watch Elementary.

Day 17!!!

Ok so breakfast:

Boring three boiled eggs, 1/2 grapefruit

No picture needed for that!

Lunch: leftover chicken fajita salad and some guacamole

Got some bad news about a friend and scarfed down some nuts why? Not quite sure was hoping to stop my stomach from churning and it just made it worse.


It was wonderful hamburger with home made mayo, (soooo good!) avocado, tomato, onion, diced jalepenos, and finally got some fresh spinach. And yum, baked sweet potato 'fries.'

One of many great things I have learned thus far is how wonderful food can be items that I never tried or never thought much of.

I have felt so great and I seem to be eating so much. And now I think I have convinced my husband to do a W30! So when I'm done ill have a glass of wine then start another!

Day 18

Rough day

B-eggs and tritip with fresh spinach probably my favorite meal!

L-sausage cut up with tomato sauce and fresh spinach

D- cod sautéed in Oliver oil with chili powder/cumin added some cucumbers and some guacamole.

Although I have been having bad days at work and such it's a good thing because I'm learning not to jump to eating something bad or quick. Or grabbing a glass of wine. So bad can be good.

Day 19 it's been a good day! But, finally had one of those 'crazy' dreams! In my dream I 'somehow' accidentally ate lasagna with tons of Mozzeralla then my stomach instantly hurt (in my dream) and I realized crap I'm doing the whole 30 I can't eat this!! It was really vivid!

Anyway here is today's line up:


It was my usual egg, onion, tritip, and spinach. Love it!

We decided to go out for the afternoon and I went out to a real restaurant for lunch for the first time. Went to Firebirds and had a great waiter who was a big help. I had a delicious delmnico steak with onion, tomato, and they steamed the veggies for me it was really good.


We did also stop at Teavana I love tea! And trying and getting new flavors I really like! Got one called Samuari chai Mate and a peachy non caffiene one for night. Will be trying that one later tonight.


And last dinner had some pork chops wasn't sure what to do in all honesty not a pork hop fan. But, off to google and tried a recipe from paleo comfort foods:


There is even a video how to make it. It was a hit even with my family the non-paleo eaters. I added some butternut squash and spinach and voila-dinner is served!


The only bad thing about today was going to Teavana and trying a tea I had asked before I sipped to ensure it had no additives and the answer was negative. But, as I sipped I saw 'German rock sugar" yuck! I almost spitted it out! Man, no matter how hard you try there are things that you must be prepared for and watch out! Luckily it was just that a sip I gave the rest to my son. I sincerely hope that would not constitute a start over! I think no....
