Finally I good again and my appetite is back. One of my 30 before 30 goals was to go on another Whole30. After considering all the Whole30 rules and how they would affect my life I decided to skip a few of them. For example the no treats and no snacks rule. For me it’s not necessary to follow this as it deprives me, makes me feel anxious and stresses me way too much to be beneficial for my health. What I do is to cut grains, dairy products (cheese too :-o) sugar and processed food. What I do is to focus on veggies and lean meat as well as fruit and good fats. After way too many take-aways in December I make cooking my food freshly a priority. I am not sure if it’s applicable to call this a Whole30 but for me this definitely counts. But you can judge yourself…
For breakfast I was lazy. I am pretty lazy lately when it comes to breakfast. Plus I am not hungry in the morning. But those Paleo Cookies called my name and I happily obeyed. Recipe by courtesy of the big man
Monday was my first day back at work. With my time off around Christmas, my trip to London and my unvoluntary time off with the flu it had been three weeks that I didn’t see my office. It was good to come back though and catch up with my colleagues and make plans for the next year. Monday started pretty busy and I am already trying to dig my way out of the work mud. I love it! It’s good to be back!
For lunch I brought some leftover Spicy Paleo Beef Soup topped with Guac. I love my new slow cooker. My lunch looked disgusting from the transport so I better show you the dinner photo. Very hot and spicy, very good! And EVERYTHING is better with Guac on top! I mean it!
As I was feeling good again I went to Crossfit. Prior to my workout I had the last Apple Cinnamon Rawbite from my advent calendar. Apple Strudel <3 I love this thing so much!
The workout was very hard and I messed up a bit with the weights. So instead of working with 80% of my Back Squat Max I accidentally worked with 90% of it. I am so sore and I can hardly move today. My whole body gives me the finger for my mishap.
When I came home my fabulous husband had made dinner. Thai Curry with a lot of veggies and a little chicken. I was so exhausted that I fell asleep only very shortly after dinner.
Today I have my home office day and accidentally slept in. I might have needed it but now I have a holy lot to do. A report has to be finished until Friday and then there is a lot of stuff to do for my thesis. As always many thanks to Jenn for hosting the food party!
Have a great Wednesday and enjoy your time!
