Whole30 - Day 3
Sleep: 6 hours at night; 3 hour nap when I got home from the race/brunch
Exercise: Hot Chocolate 15K Race (9.3 mile run)
Brunch: Pesto lentil soup*, veggie egg white omelet, chorizo, & de-caf peppermint tea
Dinner: Paleo chicken fajitas, 4 slices of bacon, roasted carrots, tomato basil soup, and a few spoonfuls of almond butter straight from the jar
*Yes, I know lentils aren't paleo, but I had just run 9.3 miles in the FREEZING cold with strong winds and needed something hot ASAP. Didn't eat any breakfast and didn't take any gels during the run (they all contain sugar).
Mood: Tired and cold for most of the day.
Whole30 - Day 2
Sleep: 12 hours
Exercise: 11 mile outdoor bike ride
Brunch: Scrambled eggs, leftover chicken bacon fauxghetti, tomato basil soup
Dinner: Grass-fed/nitrate-free beef hotdog, leftover crockpot pulled pork, 1 organic red bell pepper (raw), and a couple spoonfuls of almond butter
Mood: Felt refreshed from sleeping in for the first time in 2 months, but still groggy. Went to packet pick-up for the Chicago Hot Chocolate 15K and was angered by the long wait time (over 2 hours) in the cold and really poor administration by the race directors (Running Away Multisport).
Whole30 - Day 1
Sleep: 6 hours
Exercise: 30 minutes on the elliptical, 25 minutes of ab work & lifting weights
Food: Leftover crockpot chicken tikka masala
Mood: Feeling disgusted with my poor nutrition & fitness habits over the past 2 months. Felt sleepy and exhausted the whole day.
