Day 8, Whole30

October 20, 2015

Yesterday morning, I was walking down the stairs from my bedroom with my phone in one hand, and what was left of my first cup of coffee in the other. I came down the carpeted stairs (in my super cozy socks), to the landing, where I turned to go down the last four steps. That’s when the back of my heel hit the edge of the step and down I went. Hard! My butt, back and head all hit each step as I slid down the stairs and landed hard on my butt on the hardwood. As I sat there wondering what in the heck had just happened, I realize that my phone flew across the floor, and my coffee cup was still in my hand?

I immediately had a baseball size knot on my left butt cheek!

Shortly after my mishap, I headed out the door to the dentist. As I was getting into my car, I bumped the bottom of my coffee cup (the same coffee cup!) on the top of my steering wheel and coffee went everywhere. Really? One of those days? I have several cups for the car, with lids. I have no idea why I hadn’t grabbed one. 

I’m not drinking out of that particular cup for a few days. It needs a break!

My dentist visit was very pleasant, (I’ve been going there for over 15 years, and they are seriously a group of the nicest people!) as was the rest of my day.


Ate great. Did NOT exercise!

Here are yesterday’s eats….


Scrambled Egg Whites and Sweet Potatoes, Dried Cranberries (with NO added sugar) and Raw Pecans, Raspberries, Black Coffee




Egg Salad (recipe is in the Whole30 book!), carrots, celery and a pear.




Chicken Cacciatore (recipe is in the Whole30 book!) over Zoodles…..



…..along with a 1/2 Banana and a few Strawberries with Almond Butter



Exercise = none. Dang it!


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 be tracking my food while doing the Whole30.

I will run in a minimum of six 5K’s. Four down, two to go!
