Day 17 - Whole 30
Breakfast : Whey protein powder with light coconut milk; iced coffee with light coconut milk
Lunch : Naked fajitas; banana
I just took fajita fillings – grilled chicken/steak, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, onions, peppers, jalapenos and salsa (no cheese/sour cream/guacamole /rice/beans or tortilla!) and ate it all mixed up on a plate. Really delicious!
Snack: 2 dates; raw almonds
Dinner: green salad with chicken breast, sunflower seeds, cherry tomatoes, lemon juice for dressing
I felt good today. No hunger like yesterday, stomach issues are definitely improving. I don’t’ know if it’s the digestive enzymes or just enough time, and I don’t care as long as it doesn’t get worse again.
I have less than two weeks left on Whole30. I honestly cannot believe I have made it this far and not broken any of the rules or eaten off plan. The protein powder is allowed on the vegetarian version – and if you knew how little meat I ate before starting this you would know that eating meat/eggs for two meals a day was a HUGE challenge for me.
I am considering this my 17th day of success and I fully intend to complete 30 days.
The Eaton Downtown Dash 5K race was fun. This was the goal race for my 5k Running Clinic with the Running Room. I'll do a proper recap tomorrow. The weather was perfect, the course was flat and wide and there was beautiful scenery. I started out with my friend Melissa and saw my running girls crew at the end. This was my 10th running event and my 7th Finisher’s Medal.
It was a really nice evening and a great way to jump back into running regularly.
