Whole30 Day Two

First I’m reminding myself of my goals for these 30 days:

1. I will not use electronic devices 30 minutes before bed (and I will not check my phone when I wake up in the middle of the night)

2. I will complete Stage 1 of NROLW

3. I will spend more time with my husband

I succeeded in number 1 last night which also gave me a bit more time for number 3 too. Sweet.

I got in bed early last night because of my lack of sleep the previous nights, I read and relaxed until 8pm when David came in. Then I had to take a sleep aid because my neck was aching too much to get sleep. I tossed and turned for a bit. I know I got two solid chunks of sleep, 10-2 and 230-530. I was up around 5:45 and felt good. I had time to get ready for the day, organize my meals, finish yesterday’s blog and spend some time with the dog.

I got to work around 8am and ate breakfast: 2 egg muffins, 2 clementines, 1/4 avocado, some almonds and dried mango


It’s 9am as I write the first part of this entry and besides my awful neck pain, congestion and cough, I feel good hah. I’m sucking it up and going to the doctor today because I’ve been coughing for 1.5 weeks.

Lunch at 11:45 – green beans, cherry tomatoes and chicken. All very good.


I went to the doctor and she said it was just a lingering cough and gave me some cough meds with codeine for nighttime, which is when it’s the worst. Then I met David at the gym. I walked 5 minutes, ran 10 minutes at 5.5mph, 10 at 5.7mph, 5 min walk cooldown. Nice, easy recovery run.

Dinner at 6:21 – sweet potato, chili and almonds. A very brown dinner haha.


I haven’t had the expected hangover type feeling that I read about in the Whole30 Daily. I feel pretty good. Now if only my neck and cough would join the party!
