My life as a woman, wife and mother.

Whole30 on to Day 5

Happy Friday! It’s snowing, again….in April. Thankfully next week looks a bit warmer. I’m ready for Spring to truly begin.

Whole30 is going well. The gym is going well. This morning we were working on hand stands. Tracy encouraged (forced) me to try it by walking up to the wall and just flipping up into it. I was so scared! I did it though and it was AWESOME!

Day 1

Day 1 went well. I got to the gym, walked on the treadmill and ate well. No sugar, no grains, no dairy. Not too hard.

Not much else to say, on to Day 2.

Whole30 Round 4

Good Monday Morning!

I’m starting Whole30 again this morning. The two weeks of Easter and our Anniversary have me in a sugar/carb coma. Time to get back to veggies and protein. I’m feeling good about starting again. Hubby’s not doing it with me, but that’s okay. I’ll make it.

Our 18th wedding anniversary was Sunday. On Saturday night we went out to a restaurant. My lasagna was sooooo rich, it was hard to eat it. I didn’t eat it all. My stomach rejected it’s richness a bit later on. Boo.

I got hubby an agility ladder and a foot roller for a gift. He felt bad he didn’t get me anything. I said, don’t worry I’m going shopping later for clothes! LOL A few new workout items and some new shirts for work.

My family is starting to cough less that the last few weeks. I on the other hand have remained healthy. *knock on wood*

Enjoy your day!

Whole30 Done!

I haven’t been blogging much, mostly because I don’t feel like it! LOL

I did finish up the Whole30 last week, I lost 2.8# and 12 1/2″, mostly on my lower half!

I’ve been enjoying some sugary Easter treats, but still trying to stay conscious of how much I’m eating. I know I do better when I’m on Whole30 since it’s very restrictive. However, I’m not missing out on Easter ham and a nice dessert. Although this year I bought frozen cheesecake slices, that way we don’t have an entire cheesecake laying around talking to me to eat it! LOL

Today I’m heading to the gym to watch people do the 16.5 Open workout. I’m not doing it, no way! I haven’t been to the gym since Tuesday! I have exercised each day, just not lifting. I feel like I need a break, so I took it!

That’s what I know. Enjoy your weekend and Happy Easter!

Whole30 Day 14

I’ve made it 2 weeks! It’s been easier this time around. I still have a lot of food planning and prep work to do, but I have most of it done for next week already.

  • Monday – gym, work 8:45-1, walk at home, chili dogs and onion rings for supper
  • Tuesday – gym, work 8:45-1, walk at home, brats and fries for supper
  • Wednesday – gym?, work 8:45-5, spaghetti squash pizza pie for supper
  • Thursday – gym, work ???, if L gets her tooth out before Thursday I’ll work my normal 8:45-1, if not I’ll work 1-5 and take her to the dentist in the morning for a tooth pull, band concert at 7pm
  • Friday – gym, walk at home, work 1-6 for a coworker, dances for the girls
  • Saturday -workout at home, Madison to pick up another scoby and return bikini to Target

I’m not sure on Thursday & Friday supper, I think Friday I’ll eat whatever for leftovers. Thursday could be tacos or more leftovers.

Whole30 Day 5

Yesterday ended well. I had an extra apple to stave off the hunger.

Tonight I have a whole chicken in the crockpot and I think I’ll make mashed potatoes to go along with it. I’m also picking up some asparagus today so we’ll have that too.

Only 25 more days to go! LOL

Whole 30 Day 3 & 4

Yesterday was a good day. Supper was leftovers, I had meatballs on my salad.

Today is going well too. This morning was the first morning I felt hungry at work. I added more protein to my lunch and I hope that’ll help for the afternoon.

Tonight’s supper is BBQ Pork and Hasselback potatoes.

The gym went well, it was a tough workout, but I’m glad I didn’t give up. Sometimes my mind plays tricks on my when the going gets tough.:)

Whole30 Day 2

Things are going well. I didn’t get lunch today until 2pm since I went to Walmart right after work. Let’s start with the gym.

Tuesday’s WOD:
A) Back squat, 5@65%, 4@72.5%, 3@80%, 2@87.5%, 1+@95% of training weight; 2:00 clock

95#, 105#, 115#, 125#, 135# for 2 reps

B) 15 min AMRAP:
5 strict pull-ups – green and black band
10 back squats, 135/95 (no rack) – 65#
15 lateral burpees over the bar

Notes: Post rounds + reps completed to the board

I got 4 rounds + 18 reps

Breakfast was veggies, eggs, avocado, beef sausage and fruit. I had a Kombucha during work. I then went on the search for plain Kombucha since mine are junking out! I’m so upset that both 2 gallon jars are slimy. I have to start over so it’ll be a month or more before I have any to drink.

Lunch was a salad with chicken, avocado, olives and ranch dressing and I’m having sunflower seeds for a treat.

I’ll be heading downstairs to walk and read before the girls get home from school.

Whole30 Day 1

Good Monday morning!

I slept great last night and didn’t hear the ambulance in our neighborhood. There was an accident last night that killed 3 people and the 4th is in the hospital. I talked to my kids about it today in case they hear about it at school. They haven’t released names or ages yet except for the 18 year old female driver.

The workout this morning was pretty decent.

Monday’s WOD:
A) C&J Practice. EMOM x12: 2 squat clean & jerks, choose load that can be done quick and snappy – 75# for all

Notes: Do 2 full C&Js each minute, not TnG but you shouldn’t delay b/w reps, don’t go too heavy.

B) For time (12min cut off):
1000m Row – 4:09 NEW PR!
75 Double-Unders – actually strung together 5-8 in a row a bunch of times!
50 Sit-Ups
25 thrusters, 105/70 – 60#, didn’t finished before 12 minutes, had 6 left

Notes: Depending on numbers we’ll use a staggered start on the metcon: the second wave of folks will start 5 min after the first wave to make room on the ergs (the stronger rower should go first), everyone should be able have their own rope and barbell. Post times to board.

I had some grapes before the gym. For breakfast I had a veggie mix, leftover beef roast, 2 eggs, 1/2 small avocado and some fruit. I’m now drinking a cup of rooibos tea before work. I’ll take a homemade kombucha to drink during work.

Sadly, I had a bad batch of kombucha brewing. It was thick like syrup and I don’t drink snotty liquid! So, I had to use my other brew for starter and I only got to bottle 3 bottles. That means I’ll be going without some for about two weeks and I don’t like that at all. I did buy some lemon to put in my water bottle though.

That’s what I know so far. Lunch is a bit salad with homemade ranch dressing and probably some chicken or salmon on top. I’ll walk and read this afternoon to get my 10,000 steps in.

Supper is skillet piggies minus the rice.
