Today is the last day of the Whole30 challenge! WHOO! I’m so proud of this challenge because I did it 100%! No slips and no cheats. BOOM!
I also made it through the whole month without any alcohol, not even a sip at work to test new beers. I feel awesome about that! I will be doing a full wrapup and recap post soon. This time around was much different and I’m pretty stoked to talk about it. But let’s check in with the last few days of eats!
Chia seed pudding with TJ’s grainless granola and a sprinkle of dried coconut on top for breakfast after working out. That I totally forgot to take a picture of! Sorry about that. Derp.
I was so hungry for lunch (Thanks, PMS) and could not wait to get some food in my bellah.
I had a burger, crab cakes, and some snow peas. The burger and crab cakes had homemade tartar sauce top. Super easy, it was made with:
- Whole Grain Mustard
- Dried Dill
Dinner was leftovers heated up when I got home from work.
Roast chicken, broccolini, and some parsnip mash. There was also leftover gravy as well. Then I went straight to bed. My work days aren’t terribly exciting because I’m tired when I get home and am so ready for jammies and bed.
Banana before working out. Once home, I was starving and needed a bigger breakfast.
Sausage with kale, peppers, onions, and I also added in some roasted butternut squash. The sausage and kale mix I made on Saturday and so that was ready to go and I also roasted the squash that day as well. This came together in minutes because all I had to do was heat everything up. Check out that steam action!
I wasn’t super hungry at lunch and decided to just throw together some random items.
Tuna salad hiding out in the back. Cucumbers, peppers, and tostones along with random leftover protein; crab cake, chicken breast, and a slice of pork tenderloin. Those goodies along with some kombucha made up lunch.
Dinner was another easy meal featuring some beef stew that I pulled out of the freezer. I made this in the Instant Pot last month and knowing that I was heading into the Whole30, I was sure to make it compliant.
Today is the first day during this challenge where I’m actually pretty tired and worn out. I also just started my cycle (I have no fucks to give if you feel that’s TMI. Sorry.) and I think that’s more the culprit than the challenge.
The theme for today was to keep things simple. I could have ended the challenge with a big bang but my goal was to stay on track and go with the flow. I did that pretty well today!
I’m going to have some tea and maybe some pistachios, then it’s an early bedtime for me. I’m trying to hit the gym earlier in the mornings so we’ll see how that goes!
