Days 7 and 8
I decided not to post yesterday mainly because I didn't have anything to report, and there is probably no one reading this anyway! haha So in today's post I have included my past two days.
Woke up to a cold and foggy morning.... Brrrrr, winter is here! But it soon cleared up into a beautiful crisp and dry day so I went for a lovely walk with the dog after breakfast(about 2 miles).
I am really beginning to see the increase in energy levels throughout the day and at night. Although I had been pretty strict on Paleo for the past few months, I do include milk in tea (and I suppose I am drinking more cups a day lately than I realise) and potatoes throughout the week sometimes. Apart from that I don't veer too much from the diet but I am amazed at the difference I feel since becoming 100% Paleo. Its amazing what a difference a few tweaks can make.
Yesterday of course marked the end of the first week of Whole30 and I have to say that whilst it has been challenging at times it hasn't been too difficult. Here is to the next 21!!
Food wise my day went as follows:
Breakfast: Bacon and veggie (spring onion, tomatoes, red pepper and spinach) omelette with avocado (pictured above).
Dinner: Salmon Parcels with roasted veggies cooked in coconut oil
(Salmon cooked white wine vinegar, fennel, dill, carrots and spring onions)
Tea: 2 x eggs scrambled
Snacks: Banana, apple
And the beginning of my second week on Whole30. I had a busy, busy day today so I knew I had to be prepared. I never got hungry thank god, but I do feel like eating snacks right now and I don't really fancy anything. I have also had quite a few snacks already but maybe I am just extra hungry because I was busy?!
Food wise, my day looked like this:
Breakfast: Butter Fried Salmon Fillet with Stirfried veggies
Snack: Piece of bacon, apple, banana
Lunch: 2 eggs scrambled with spinach with avocado
Dinner: Chicken, turnip, broccoli and cauliflower
Snack: 2 x mandarins.
Feeling good! So keep it up and if you are feeling down today remember, you are over a quarter there already! Go you!
