From August 1 through August 23, I’m documenting my Whole30, including the when, what, where, and how much of my sleep, activity, food, and mood. Read about why I’m doing the Whole30 right here. Not familiar with the Whole30? Learn all about it here and get extra help with the Whole30 Daily.
Whole30: Day 14
I needed to write Chapter 17 of Living Paleo for Dummies today, and I’m ever so grateful that I woke up feeling alert and motivated. Mission accomplished; chapter done! I get two rewards: Kundalini Yoga today and a visit from the fabulous Jude of SmartSexyPaleo.
7 hours — 10:00 to 5:00. (I forgot to take Melatonin last night, so I slept well but not nearly long enough.)
Kundalini Yoga: We did a long kriya set that targeted the adrenal system, which meant lots of core work, breathing, holding our arms in odd positions, and being comfortable with being uncomfortable. It was brilliant.
I’ve found my appetite is less ravenous, and I feel better if I eat in a 11-hour window — usually between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. so I can stop eating about 2-3 hours before going to bed — and don’t snack between meals or before bed. Because I’m dealing with my thyroid experiment, I’m measuring and tracking my food right now. I aim for 40% fat, 30% protein, 30% carbs.
Breakfast, 6:30 a.m.
1/2 cup blueberries
4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast + 1/2 cup sweet potatoes + 1 cup cauliflower + 1 teaspoon coconut oil + Lebanese 7-Spice Powder
Lunch, 3:00 p.m.
1 cup Chocolate Chili
1/2 large cucumber
1 cup snap peas
1/2 cup raspberries
2 Brazil nuts
1 teaspoon Sunbutter
Dinner, 7:30 p.m. — Firebowl Cafe
4 ounces beef + broccoli + snap peas + scallions + red bell pepper w/ Thai lemongrass basil sauce
side salad w/ garlic dressing
Productive! Excited to be done with the chapter and see Jude!
Photo Video of the Day
I worked like the devil was on my tail today, but in the afternoon, I took a break to look at The 20 Awesomest GIFs of Cats Being Dicks, which I thoroughly enjoyed (#3 on page 3 was my favorite). I also was delighted by this video:
Song of the Day
Price Tag, Jessie J
The Closing Ceremony of the Olympics reminded me how much I like this bouncy song, and how much I just enjoy Jessie J’s antics in general. I mean, look at these photos. That is a girl who celebrates herself on a regular basis. Plus, there’s the hair. Of course I love the hair.
How was your Day 14?
