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 9 and 10: Cruise control on!

Things going well for the most part. Workouts have been consistent, and haven’t had any significant loss in energy. I do get tired a few times during the day, but I seem to be able to push through those lulls. Hard to believe that we are 1/3 of the way done with the start of our journey. #Whole30 isn’t just a 30-day diet, but it defines a period of super clean eating that sets you up with a healthier body for clean eating as a lifestyle. The only cravings I’m experiencing are psychological, where I associate some place or event with eating a certain type of food, or drinking a certain type of drink.

Day 9 Meals:

Breakfast-
Eggs
Spinach

Lunch-
Chopped Chicken Cobb Salad w/Avocado without cheese or dressing (from Panera Bread)

Dinner-
Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

 

Day 10 Meals:

Breakfast-
Eggs
Fruit
Spinach

Lunch-
Chicken Breast
Grapes

Dinner-
Pork Chops
Green Beans
Carrots
