Day 4 Whole 30/Paleo

The day started off rough. When your three year old wakes up at 1am ready to play you know it's going to be a long night!  After laying by him for an hour and getting kicked, kissed and hugged I gave up and gave him the phone to watch a show on. 

I woke up at 4:30 so stinking hot and sweaty. I fell back asleep and woke up at 5:30 am to pump and head to Insanity. 

I was feeling shaky and light headed and almost went back to bed. Instead I ate a banana and a protein drink. 

I went to the class. While I tried hard I pretty much modified every move and took tons of breaks. I was just not feeling good!

I sent the kids off to school and made breakfast. Even though I know it's not Paleo or whole 30 approved I am going to eat oatmeal at least three times a week because I feel like I am losing my milk supply and I don't want that to happen. 

Breakfast was a cup of oatmeal sweetened with two packets of Stevia 
with 2 tsp of almond butter, half cup of blueberries and two eggs.   I also had a cup of almond/coconut milk. 

I was pretty full from that until about 1pm. I was heading into Costco and you don't going to that store hungry so I had a snack of an apple and a packet of almonds. 

Since I hadn't been feeling good I was unmotivated to prepare lunch/dinner for myself so I stopped at Durangos and ordered a small steak salad with fajita veggies, guacamole, extra poco and a little vinegrette dressing.  The girl was quite surprised I didn't want any tortilla, beans, rice or cheese. 
I loved this salad. 

There was a fundraising spagehtt dinner at the church so I knew I was not going to be eating that. I had leftovers from last night. 
Salmon, avocado and roasted cauliflower. 

My bedtime snack was a coconut cream pie Lara Bar. 

It was alright. Not my favorite but I did also get a carrot cake and apple pie to try. These bars are awesome in that they are made of all natural ingredients and Paleo friendly. 

So how am I doing at the end of Day 4? I am feeling pretty good. I want a treat but not really. I am sleeping good and I haven't been too hungry. I didn't drink enough water today. I went to the store at 8pm and bought all the ingredients for pumpkin Paleo waffles but didn't want to go to the effort. I think I will have to make those Sat morning. 

I should probably call this a Whole 30/Paleo challenge. It's not going to be a perfect Whole 30 but I am not competing against anyone.  I am just trying to do the best I can.
