Pam’s Whole30 First Day

Posted Jan 07 2013 8:43pm

A day in the life of me ;-) I got asked to post what a typical day looks like so I thought it would be a perfect time to do this during the nutrition challenge.

4:30am: wake up and get ready to WOD for 5:30. I’ve always been able to exercise first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I drink my coffee on the ride to the gym. 16 oz. of coffee with 2 tablespoons of my paleo coffee creamer and a dash of heavy whipping cream is enough calories to get me through. Now settle down all you Whole30 police, I already know that dairy and I are not friends. I learned this after my first paleo challenge in 2011. But the little bit of cream in my coffee is all I can handle without feeling sick and I enjoy it. So for me, my goal for this challenge is dial in my nutrition again. I already had my “come to Jesus moment” and realize that I am a healthier and happier person when grains, dairy, and legumes are not in my system.

7:30am: eat breakfast while en route to home room. Today I had an apple (pink lady-my favorite) with a heaping tablespoon of almond butter and 1 cup of the paleo egg salad with bacon I made last night (hard-boiled eggs, paleo mayo, homemade bacon bits, salt, pepper, and parsley).  I am stuffed! I generally only eat one piece of fruit a day and I try to only eat it post-exercise.  I am already almost done with my 22 oz. water bottle.

11:50-my lunch time. I eat second lunch at my school most days of the week and here it is and I am not hungry at all. A little annoyed because I won’t be able to eat now until after school at 2:20. Next time no almond butter; too much food, yet I am amazed as to what appeared like not a lot of food kept me feeling full for 6+hours. Certainly no going hungry for this girl!

Salads ready for the week just needing a protein.

2:30-started getting hungry about 30 minutes ago but was teaching so I had to wait until now. Will eat my salad with tuna during the faculty meeting. Interestingly enough I am not famished. I just am feeling a little hungry. I’ll make sure to use this example when explaining to my students how protein and fat keep you feeling full longer.

6:30-had some dinner of homemade meatloaf and mashed white sweet potatoes. Wasn’t overly hungry. Drank some black muscle recovery tea.

7:45-start to get ready for tomorrow. Finish packing lunch and gym bag and try to get to bed by 9 after watching a bit of the Biggest Loser & finishing this post :-)

9:00-take my fish oil, vitamin D, and Natural Calm and head to bed to do it all over again tomorrow at 4:30!

I hope this helps! Feel free to email or reply with any questions! Good luck to everyone!
