Check in

So I finally got around to taking these progress pics that I have been wanting to take every month. I will now commit to taking these every month.  I think it will take two months to see much change but they will be good to look back on. 

There is about a 15 lb difference in these pics.  I am wishing I would have started this journey of picture taking in black spandex!

This was my weight on Monday 

I will also weigh in every Monday and post it.

While I am working in getting smaller this buddy is getting bigger!

He's 4 months old!

Here's to getting fitter and stronger!

Day 11 and done

No working out today. I took a rest day because it was a crazy day and my husband was out of town. 

Here is a collage of my day. There were a few handfuls of caco chips thrown in there. 

Like I said when I posted this pic on Instagram and Facebook it's time to call this challenge what it really is. It's not really a Whole 30 it's more of a Paleo with a few non Paleo bites thrown in. 

I am proud at how well I have done and I plan on eating this way forever. I do know there will be many times when I won't be perfect but I don't want to be. I also don't want to be controlled by my sweet tooth either. 

I am really going to work hard on finding the best way of eating that helps me accomplish my fitness goals but still allows me to have treats.

Day 10 Whole 30

Arise and shine at 4:30 am. 
Feed the baby and go back to sleep!
Josh is deer hunting so that means no early morning WODS for me.  I headed instead to the 9:30 am class. 
This was a tough WOD (aren't they all). Running I can handle. Sit-ups and double unders 4 months after my fourth baby!?!  I have no core or bladder strength!  I look forward to doing this WOD again in a few months and know that my time will be much better. I finished in 28:54. 

Getting up later and then working out kinda threw my eating times off.  I ate this oatmeal w/almond butter,cinnamon and splash of almond milk and two eggs at 11 am. 

Lunch was leftover salad from Sunday with chicken I scraped out of the tortilla things we had last night with some chopped up Roma tomato and avocado. I splashed some balsamic vinegar for dressing. 

Snack was some 60% caco chips. 

Dinner was spaghetti squash, broccoli and 1/2 cup ground chicken.  I mixed this all together after and put a tablespoon of spagehtt sauce over it. 

Bedtime snack is an apple with almond butter and more chips. 

I am for sure not doing this 100% pure Whole 30 but I am doing the best I can each day. I have been slacking on the water the last couple days so I need to step that up.

Day 9 Whole 30

Arise and shine at 4:25
A great WOD. This was a butt kicker. I now have another goal to accomplish at CrossFit. A wall walk up. I finished this in 17:50ish. 

I really love that Britt has come with me this week. I hope this happens more often!!
Breakfast was again yummy
Lunch. Grilled salad from Dairy Queen minus the cheese and a few fries from LJ's kids meal. 
I bought these at WalMart. Yummy. 

I need to get rid of these. Too many trips to the freezer to get a handful. 

Dinner. This happened because I am feeling a little burned out and am reveling a little. 

I need to get out of this little mental eating funk that I in. I just want to eat all the time and eat whatever I want and see. I think I am going to still eat strict Paleo but take a break from posting what I eat in Instagram or lots of detail here. 

Who knows I might wake up more motivated to step it up and stuck with it.

Day 8 Whole 30

Awake at 4:30 am
CrossFit at 5am. It was fun to work out for the first time in the new gym. 
There were lots of people there and I guess even more at the 6am class. 
Weighed in at

Breakfast was the usual at the hospital. 

We were super busy so here was a quick snack. 

Lunch was an unwhich #12 from Jimmy Johns no cheese. 
These were yummy cashew clusters with almonds and pumpkin seeds. Not sure if they were totally Paleo but they were good. 

Chicken, sweet potato and broccoli for dinner. 
I ended the day with a banana and some dark chocolate chips 

Good night

Day 7 Whole 30

This sums up the whole day

We had Kadens baby blessing and I was not prepared to eat well. Too many snitches of treats and now my head feels like it's going to explode. 

Sugar hates me.
