Whole30, Day 2

I won't update every day but wanted to share how I felt during Day 1 and Day 2 thus far.  Of course I would pick the first day of Aunt Flo to start this challenge.  Oof.  All in all, it went great yesterday.  I had breakfast at 8am and by 12:45, my stomach was growling.  So, for close to 5 hours I was full.  No snacks.  The key is to have 3 large, filling meals - limit snacking and have your last meal a few hours before bed so for me, that's by 7 or 8pm.

I was hungry for dinner when I got home at 5:15 and knew I was going to class at 7, so for dinner I had leftover steak with about 2 cups of peppers, onions and yellow squash, and 1 scrambled egg.  I love eggs but I know in another week, I'm going to be sick of them.  I'll have to switch it up and add different veggies, hot sauce, etc.

I decided to make egg muffins last night to save some time for the morning.  I had two this morning - they were good and full of flavor!  101 calories each.  I used coconut oil to grease the muffin pan.  With that, I had a handful of blueberries, a kiwi and 1/4 of an avocado with hot sauce.  Oh and black coffee.  Still getting used to it!  I saw a recipe for whipped coconut cream so I might try that in my coffee.

Lunch today is romaine salad with tomato, cucumber, avocado, homemade dressing and a whole can of plain tuna.  I saw a recipe for paleo mayo which I might try.  Dry tuna is just blah.

On another note, my back & hips are really bothering me today.  Not my lower back but the whole left side.  Just fantastic.  Class in the park last night was tough, but good.  Monday's class was harder and I wasn't in pain after that.  It's strange how our bodies work and react to different moves.

Tonight I'm looking forward to dinner with my future MIL & SIL.  Hmm, eating out will be interesting on this plan.  Enjoy your Thursday :)


  1. I love egg muffins. So easy and portable too. Plus you can pretty much throw whatever you have in the fridge into them and they taste good.

    1. Definitely - I used pepper, onion & spinach.

  2. Share the egg muffin recipe please!

    Sounds like you're doing well! Keep up the good work!
