Family Flu and still going strong on Whole 30

My poor bug a boo is home sick with the flu....this has made it a little harder for me....I need to go to the store and I feel like I have been in the house all week.  Today is a little more challenging as I am a little bored with my food choices....this morning I tried making a pancake and it failed (1egg / 1 banana/ blueberries)  Mash all together and you get a pancake but I messed up.  I ended up making my default 2 eggs over easy.  For lunch I made a sweet potatoe and left over mustard pork chop which was yummy.  I was craving chocolate last night but I fought it and was fine......I am on Day 4 going into Day 5 so I think this is to be expected.

This weekend I am going to kick it up a notch and make sweet potato nachos, roast and some other fun recipes.  I will take pictures and update you on how they taste.  I still feel great just would love to go have a margarita, fajitas with cheese but I am strong and realize this is only 26 more days. has wonderful recipes, per the below!

On another note I am getting so excited to travel to Cabo with my besties and husband for our "40".  Yes, you heard that right, forty! That is part of my mid-life crisis of challenging myself for health, professionally and personally.  I will save that for another day.

I feel great on Whole 30.....Day 3

Okay, this is not as hard as I thought. Could it be I was ready? After 3 days, I have a slight head ache but my bloat feels so much better and I have energy. My husband and I made it very easy to follow the first week as we knew any crazy recipes would effect our ability to stay on track.

Our week of eating:


Breakfast- 2 egg omelet with spinach and bacon ...1/2 orange

Lunch - Grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato pico

Dinner - Grilled chicken with carrots/mushrooms, zucchini grilled


Breakfast- 2 boiled eggs and a coffee...harder this morning as I rushed out the door for a meeting

Lunch- Grilled chicken, lettuce, and tomato

Snack - Handful of nuts/banana

Dinner- Grilled chicken, steamed broccoli and sweet potato mashed


Breakfast - 2 eggs over easy/spinach

Lunch- ground beef salad, with lettuce and avocado

Dinner - Mustard Pork Chops..yummy, butternut squash with spinach

Notice a common theme, same items over and over....I am okay with this and yes I am sure I will get bored and then I will shake it up.....On another note you really should not weigh yourself but I was curious and I lost 5lbs....That is motivating :)

Whole 30....The journey to a healthier me and husband

Tomorrow we start a journey to strive for better health.  As I have gotten older my weight has increased but also my energy is non-existent.  Mike and I have decided to make a commitment of 30 days and then continue....I know it will be hard as I love my coffee with cream and sugar but I can do this.  If we can overcome all the obstacles over the years we can do this for 30 days.  I will post every day to share my journey and keep me accountable.  Here is to an exciting journey of change!
