I woke up feeling better, stronger, and more determined to stay on track. I also woke up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
I decided to fast through breakfast. I still just didn’t have much of an appetite. I know this is a Whole30 no no but I just wasn’t hungry. So I had my typical water and coffee and got the day going.
I felt really good and productive.
For lunch I had a burger with a pickle and a side of coleslaw with Lemon Garlic Dressing. It was just what I needed. It’s funny how your food “needs” change. Typically I would need chips or fries, ketchup, a bun, and so much more but this healthy little lunch was perfect.
My little healthy lunch kept me satisfied all afternoon. I was also super focused and productive.
By dinner time I was ready for a big dinner. I had a steak, bacon and Brussels sprouts, and roasted potatoes and onions. It was a large meal that I needed!
As I have mentioned before this is not my first round of Whole 30…. a few years ago before our first round my cooking was always full of butter, cheese, and processed everything. Sure, we fall back into some bad habits after each round but since doing our first round I rarely have a cheese filled meal. I rarely use butter unless I am baking. And we hardly ever use processed foods except for the occasional junk foods. So, not only do you feel better you really do pick up better eating habits.
Sleep…. well I was lucky to maybe get 3 hours. Our youngest is going through a wicked sleep regression! There is no let him cry it out either. Believe me, I have tried! He gets louder and louder and louder. Honestly, I am in such a deep sleep I know I don’t hear him right away but the longer it goes on the louder he gets and its painful to listen to. Even on just a few hours of sleep it was still really freaking good sleep.
