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 7: First week done!

 


Source

Took the day off from working out. I was planning on going to CrossFit Chickasaw, but the wife literally didn’t get to workout at all last week, and she wanted to go to the gym early this morning. Oh all right, I’ll sleep in!

Day was fairly uneventful otherwise. I have begun to notice a difference between meals. When I first started #Whole30, I was usually hungry an hour or two after each meal, and anxiously awaiting my next meal. Now I seem to be fine most of the time, and only eating because I know I need to. My cravings also feel like they are beginning to subside. I faced a few challenges of birthday cakes and such at the office that weren’t too hard to turn down. Also noticing that my post-dinner cravings seem to have disappeared.

Meals:

Breakfast-
Eggs
Asparagus
Mango

Lunch-
Chicken
Sauteed squash
Brussels Sprouts
Boiled Carrots

Dinner-
Bison burgers w/tomato
Broccoli
Spinach
