Day 1 Check-In

ex whole30 expectFirst day Whole 30. I think I did super well!! Especially considering I might hae stayed up later than I should have playing Cards Against Humanity.

I woke up at 6:15am because I wanted to be able to arm up and sit at the table to eat my first meal. It is a big thing in the program that you sit at a table and take in what you eat. No TV. No sitting on a couch. So I got up, got dressed, prepped my food for lunch and then warmed up my first meal of prosciutto-wrapped frittata’s and water. They were YUMMY.

ex andesAt about 10am I started to feel hungry. Which probably means I needed to eat more at breakfast. Notes taken. During this time a funny incident happened, I was in my bosses office and she has this jar…that she usually keeps mints in. Well. She breaks out a box of mint chocolate Andes. HOLY SHIT. Then she opens it and pours all that chocolate into the jar that isΒ right beside me. I was staring at her as she was pouring them in the jar and I kept thinking “Is this really happening?? Am I being tested this early in?” I tried to not react, to pretend like something major was happening but my insides were just shocked. I did not touch the candy at all.

At 11:30am I was ready to kill an animal and eating it raw on the floor, so I knew it was time for lunch. I had good conversation with my co-workers Kevin and Barbara. I had my beef-stuffed pepper and cauli-mash. I enjoyed it a lot but felt the beef was a bit too dry. Need to make is saucier next time, maybe more tomato paste?

This meal was great and got me through to my pre-workout snack which was half a scotch egg.

It smelled ok but kind of fishy, which scared me. Then inspiration hit–cilantro! I threw that in there andΒ voila! A delightful smelling {and tasting} stir fry! I also fried up some cauli-rice with onion, garlic and cilantro. It was an epic dinner. I am still satisfied from it, and it’s been 2 hours.

Tomorrow I am told I will be getting detoxed and thus will have a headache and be cranky. I can only imagine what tomorrow will bring!
