Whole30 Challenge Day 10 Recap
Day 10 of the Whole30 challenge is here. I’m in double digits now. Whoa, this is big time!
I woke up early to head to Beverly Hills for a dentist appointment at 8am. I know, so early! I started going to this dentist because they were located in the building next door to the old MySpace Music where I used to work. Now the dentist is over an hour away from me and my new office but I really like them so it makes the drive worth it. Plus it brings back good memories!
I didn’t eat anything before going to the dentist so I was hungry after. I had hard boiled eggs I brought in the car with me but since I was in my old stomping grounds I decided to stop by Urth Cafe and grab a fresh veggie juice.Then I quickly stopped at my eye doctor and picked up my new glasses. New year, new glasses! What do you all think?
I also got salmon and eggs from Urth with a mixed salad and olive oil which I saved for lunch. It was pretty filling ad I felt like a fatty in front of my desk with all that food in front of me. But it was all healthy! Then I was thinking, do I feel like a fatty because of the food I’m eating or the volume in front of me? I realized this is probably one of my psychological issues with food- we think we are being healthy by eating less, not more. But we can eat more- as long as its more of the right things!
Lunch kept me pretty satisfied too which was great. When I got home I heated up some leftover paleo meatloaf and cauliflower mash for dinner. It was so good and filling. Delicious.
After dinner we got ready for our soccer game. My husband and I play in a 7v7 coed soccer league twice a week. It’s a great workout and a lot of fun. We played a really good team and it was freezing out. And by freezing I mean LA temperature where cold is 37 degrees at night. I had on a long sleeve shirt and shorts and it was NOT cutting it. At half time I put on my husbands sweatshirt and wore it for the 2nd half WITH the hood on. Burr. We lost our game 6-1. I had the 1 goal on our team so that at least made me feel slightly better.
I have been having some GI issues on whole30 this week which have been disturbing. But I’m told its the body cleansing itself so I’m sticking with it. The biggest difference I have noticed on Day 10 was when I woke up early. Normally when I get up earlier than normal I am cranky and don’t want to talk to anyone until I have a sip of coffee. But I didn’t feel like that. I didn’t even think of having coffee until I left my house and thought to myself that I didn’t drink coffee. This is a good thing!
What about you? Do you think too much volume of food is bad, even it is healthy whole foods? Do you rely on your morning coffee? Post in the comments and let me know!
