Round 2, Whole30, Day 2

March 25, 2016

Yesterday was Day 2 of Whole30, and also day two of just go go go. Before we ate dinner, I showered and put on my pj’s. After dinner, couch time for American Idol and KU Basketball, then bed later than I really wanted. Bed felt like clouds and I was zonked.

Dinner could not have been any easier. Cut up veggies in big chunks. Put a chicken on top and season. Bake.

This is my Roasted Chicken and Vegetables recipe, and I forgot how….

  • Easy it is to make.
  • How good it makes the house smell.
  • How delicious it taste!

This is a perfect Whole30 meal!



Ahhhhh….the smell makes me happy. Think….Grandma’s house.



I like to put it on a platter and admire it.



Enjoy all the beautiful views of this pretty bird.



Guys….easiest dinner ever!


Here are the rest of yesterday’s eats….

During Whole30, I’m eating four meals a day.

Breakfast – 8 SP

One Egg on a bed of Smashed Cooked Sweet Potatoes (I stirred those cooked smashed potatoes around in a skillet in a little bit of bacon fat, then added 1/2 slice of cooked crumbled bacon- You should totally try it!) with Strawberries and a half of a Banana.



Lunch – 5 SP

Under those Cherry Tomatoes is some yummy Tuna Salad that I took to eat while working at the Food Truck.



Afternoon Meal (that’s what I’m calling it now) – 6 SP

Turkey Burger with Mustard and Pickles. Leftover Roasted Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts



Dinner – 11 SP

Chicken, Potatoes, Carrots and Whipped Cauliflower with a dot of Ghee. Mmmmm…..ghee. (If you’ve not heard of it, it’s Clarified Butter.)

For my Whole30 Whipped Cauliflower, I simply boil cauliflower florets for 8-10 minutes, drain well, add back to pan and mix with an immersion blender. Add just a little ghee and salt and pepper to taste.


These are my 2016 Goals

Make time each week to Meal Plan
Drink 100 ounces of water each day
Exercise 5 days a week
Three Meals and One Snack, Daily

I can eat 30 SmartPoints a day.

I have an allowance of 35 extra Weekly Points that I can dip into throughout the week if I choose.

My Weight Watcher Week Begins on Friday’s


Breakfast = 8

Lunch = 5

Afternoon Meal = 6

Dinner = 11

Total = 30


Exercise = none

How many ounces of water I drank for the day = 70

Remaining Weekly SmartPoints = 0

    I loved reading your comment!

    It’s funny that you sent it today, because after my meeting this morning I was talking with one of the receptionist, and she tells me that WW will now hire you with a Dr. note regarding your weight. The BMI rule no longer applies? I’m looking into that, and hoping it’s a fact. So, no, not a Leader yet, but still really wanting that to happen!

    I do love the Balsamic Flavored Vinegars. I’ll try to eat more salads this go around on the Whole30.

    Chef Salad and Chili sounds amazing right now. It’s a little chilly here!

  3. I wish I could tell you a recipe for a salad but I’m not good at following a recipe because I never have all the ingredients.
    What I do have on hand is balsamic vinegar in a lot of flavors.
    We have a place here called the Flying Olive and my favorite is strawberry. I just keep lots of greens, fruits, veggies, and chicken available. I do like cheese but only really good real cheese non of that Kraft stuff.
    And when I’m bad I go to Empress (Cincinnati Chili) and get a chef salad with ranch and a side of chili and mix that up all together–if it wasn’t Good Friday I would have one right now.
    But egg salad at Potbelly or salad bar at Frisch’s will have to do today.

  4. I just found your blog via Pinterest. Saw a post about trader joes bread from 2013 while I was looking for WW recipes. I went all the way back to 2011! and jumped from year to year. Love the blog. Super helpful and you have tons of great recipes… Im dying to know though (I may have missed the post that answers this question) did you ever become a ww leader? If not who cares! 10 lbs over the chart is totally fine in my book. If its that hard to maintain 150 for you then its not a good weight for you. It shouldn’t be that hard, and your body is telling you that.
