Week 1 of Whole 30 went really well. I didn’t struggle as much as I thought I would, mainly because I follow a Paleo diet, however the last month before starting this I was eating more sweets and fried foods then I normally do.
I had some cravings for sugar at night on days 2 and 3, but I drank some water and had an apple and was fine. I also planned out my week of meals a few days out so that helped keep me on track. Overall I’m feeling great and can already see a difference especially in my mid section. My clothes are fitting better as well. I’m a tad tired at times, however I’m not sure if it’s from my eating or an iron deficiency. I have to get a check up soon to see where my levels are at, but hoping switching up my eating habits will help.
So here’s what I ate this past week. I have no problem eating the same thing over and over because for one it’s easier and it’s cheaper not to have to buy a bunch of different foods.
Sweet Potato Hash
Eggs mixed with leftover seasoned meat mixture from night before.
I’d usually have a mixture of any of the above. If I’d make sweet potato hash (sweet potato, onions, peppers) I’d make enough for a day or two.
Egg and Guacamole Boats
Burger Patty with a fried egg and avocado
Leftovers from dinner
Twice Baked Potato
Steak with shallots/garlic and sweet potato side
Grass Fed Burger Patty with Guacamole and spicy kale chips.
Snacks ( If needed)
Hard Boiled Eggs
Technically I’m doing a modified Whole 30 meal plan because I do have my Shakeology daily which is a no on the program. It’s always been a good way to get my vitamins and love what it does for my body so I am keeping track of everything I eat and how I feel. When I do my next round eventually, I’ll maybe do without and see what my results are. I’m also doing a 30 day workout program with this as well so I can’t wait to see what my results will be at the end of January.

I’m also documenting my journey on social media so follow me below!
