Whole 30 THE END! (with Day 30 food)

Day 30 breakfast Day 30 lunch Day 30 morning Day 30 preWOD Day 30 snack DAy 30 snacks Day 30 supper

Here’s what I ate yesterday. I did take photos of myself this morning and I see no change in my body. The scale has me down 3.6# and I love 7.25″ overall. Mostly my legs and lower hips! Woohoo for that! My skin doesn’t look much different than before I started, but I do believe I don’t have joint pain in my hands in the morning. It must be gone because I don’t notice it.

Today at lunch I reintroduced cheese. I had some on my salad. Tonight after work I may go for a scoop of ice cream from Popcorn Corner. Hopefully I won’t feel any ill effects from that.

I work 5-8:30 tonight and tomorrow I’m not going to the gym, but will probably walk on the treadmill before work.

Enjoy your day!

I went to the gym this morning and hit a new PR on my snatch!

Monday’s WOD:
A) Snatch Practice: 15 min to build to a heavy single. – 80# new PR!

10 Burpees

rest 1min, then 4min AMRAP of:

I used a 45# KB and did way to many burpees on a Monday! LOL

I walked for 15 minutes on the treadmill and had a wonderful breakfast.

I work 8:45-1 and then L has piano at 1:45, and C has a dentist cleaning at 2:30pm. Rushing around for me this afternoon. Then if it’s not raining C wants to go to a park to look for some shells on the shoreline.

Enjoy your Monday!

I made mayo this morning and was going to make ketchup but I’m out of tomato paste. I need to prep some veggies for next week, but otherwise I’m taking it easy.

I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to do after the Whole 30 is over….

While at the Relay we bit on a bunch of items at the silent auction. We went back this morning to walk a bit, L had the pancake breakfast and we won 5 gift baskets! I paid $146 for $288 worth of items AND got a $100 in one of the baskets. I made out like crazy for $46! I also got a present for my new nephew and his older brother and mother. :)

Today was our annual picnic with my college friends. It was a beautiful day and I enjoyed seeing them all so much. The kids even had a great time playing together!

Post weights & times to comments

I’m going to walk & read, shower up and head out to shop for produce before WW. I’ll weigh-in today and have Cheryl email in my lowest weight for the month. I’m still not looking until July 1st. I don’t believe I’ve lost ANY weight, but again, not gaining would be good too! LOL

I’m going out to lunch today with Cheryl since it’ll be the last time I work with her. We are going to Subway, I’ll get a chopped salad and I’m bringing my own steak slices and dressing. None of their meat is compliant for me to eat.

I’ll come home from that and prep a few salads for the next few days and get ready to work from 5-8:30pm tonight.

Enjoy your day!
