Just a guy who found exercise late in life. I absolutely LOVE running and CrossFit. But, you'll only have to be around me for a few minutes to figure that out.


#Whole30 - Day 4: The sun does come out tomorrow

Source

What a difference a day makes! I feel a whole lot better this morning than I did yesterday morning. I got about 7.5 hours of sleep, and actually woke up before my alarm clock. Energy levels seem to be OK so far. I’m betting it’s the awesome Taco Salad I had for dinner last night. Hopefully it was, because it’s also what’s for lunch today.

Frustrating afternoon with work stuff, which seems to affect me worse right now when I’m hungry. Puts me in a bad mood quickly.

Another day off from working out. I might go for a 2 mile run tomorrow just to stretch the legs out some before my 10K race on Sunday. I picked a weird time to start this life-change. I’ve got my first 50K in two weeks. I’m more than a little worried that my energy levels won’t be where they need to be by then.

Meals:

Breakfast-
4 Eggs
Bell Peppers
Raspberries
Grapes

Lunch-
Taco Salad

Dinner-

Baked Chicken
Sautéed Zucchini
Kale with bacon
Boiled Carrots
