Before I talk about day 1 of Whole30, let me just say that I love Weight Watchers. I love a challenge and I love an experiment and I am doing the Whole30 for several reasons, as listed in yesterday’s post. I will not be counting points during these 30 days, but I will still go to my Friday meetings, and I will always be a WW member.
Day 1 of Whole30 went really well. It was actually very easy. My husband said to me while eating dinner….”This is what we usually eat.” or something along those lines. I said….”I know, I just don’t get to have my fancy coffees or my wine buzz!”
That being said, I was busy from the time my feet hit the floor yesterday morning until I climbed into bed last night, and we had nothing on the social calendar last night. I would imagine 30 days of being busy 24/7 and no social outings would make doing the Whole30 a lot easier. However, that’s not going to happen and I’m sure there are several challenging days ahead. I’m just going to enjoy the fact that day one went really well and we ate some really good food.
Since we are doing this together, I’m doing lots of planning for the both of us. When I go to bed each night, my plan is to know what we are eating for all three meals the following day. The hub’s has got it made! He has opened the fridge the last two mornings to find his breakfast halfway prepared and his lunch packed and ready to go!
While I had planned to spend much of Sunday doing some prep work to make cooking easier this week, I spent much more time reading the Whole30 book than I had planned. It’s a really good book!
I did spend most of last night in the kitchen. I cooked two spaghetti squash so I would have some for us to eat later in the week.
I made the mayo recipe in the Whole30 book and it turned out great!
I made clarified butter, following the recipe in the Whole30 book, to eat on roasted veggies and whatever else I get to eat it on…or in.
I made pork sausage patties using a recipe in the book too! I’ll show you those in my post for tomorrow when I show you my breakfast that I’m about to eat!
Here are yesterday’s eats….
Potatoes, Red Onions, 2 Eggs and chopped Avocado….One of my favorite breakfast!
Banana and Raw Cashew’s while driving home from Trader Joe’s.
I need to do a little more reading. You’re not really supposed to snack, but small meals are fine, so I combined nuts and fruit and will assume for today that this fits into the plan. I did actually eat because I was hungry, so that’s a good thing.
I’ll need to be careful with the nuts. They can be a trigger food for me and that’s one thing I’m hoping to learn how to handle better during this 30 days.
Tuna Salad made with Hard Boiled Eggs, Mustard, S & P in lettuce leaves, carrot sticks and raspberries.
Turkey Spaghetti served with Zoodles and Spaghetti Squash. (My zucchini was actually too wide to fit into my veggietti, so I used my vegetable peeler and just made slices.) I sautéed those with garlic in light Olive Oil for just a couple of minutes. Dinner was delicious.
This is What I Will Accomplish in 2015
I will choose one occasion per month for Social Drinking (um..this is a work in progress)
I will go no more than two days in a row without exercise. (I’ve done “two a day’s” to make up)
I will track every single day of the entire year. (I’ve only NOT tracked a few weekends this year.)
I will not track during the Whole30 challenge.
I will run in a minimum of six 5K’s. Four down, two to go!
