Today is Day One of my Whole30. I had an awful night of sleep last night. I went to bed around 8:30, was up at 9:30, 9:58 when I took a shower to try and get some mucus from my cough out and relieve my neck pain, again around 11 when I moved from my bed to the couch for better neck support, 12:30 when David checked on me, 3 when I went back into the bed, 5ish and for good around 6:10. It sucked. My neck hurts and then as soon as I’d break through the pain and almost be asleep, I started coughing again. I’ve done neck exercises already today and switched out my chair at work. I’m also going to do some rolling of the muscle with a tennis ball tonight.
On to the food. I packed breakfast, lunch and a pre-workout meal fo
r work today.
At 8am, I ate breakfast – two egg muffins, some mild salsa, half an avocado and 2 clementines. The egg muffins were awesome – mine had spinach, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes and chicken sausage.
After breakfast, I read my daily email and one of the items to do is – think of three meals you could make in 15 minutes or less, with ingredients you’ll always have on hand. Then, write them down.
tuna with celery and apples over lettuce with almonds on the side
scrambled eggs with veggies and chicken sausage
ground meat with spices and veggies cooked in coconut oil
Lunch was tuna with homemade mayo, apples and celery with romaine and cherry tomatoes on the
side. I also had two dates (not in picture).
I got home from work at 6 and David had dinner ready. We had turkey loaf and broccoli. It was really good. The turkey loaf was very dense and yum. I had some dried mango and almonds also.
Then tried to work out some knots in my neck before bed. Skipped the gym last night because of my neck.
