WHOLE30 day5

Today is Good Friday - - day started off with a great breakfast - decided to use the leftover steak fajita and add it to our scrambled eggs.  Was very yummy - was strange to have steak for breakfast but it was surprisingly good.

Went for a hike with T's brother and his family. Hiked along the Bruce Trail to see some of Hamilton's pretty waterfalls.  It was a lot of fun - but boy, was it muddy! We were covered in mud by the time we got back to the car.  T and I both commented on how great we felt - was nice to be outside, enjoying nature.

Dinner tonight was a home made burger topped with a sunnyside up egg and sweet potato rounds.  I had never had egg over my burger (T highly recommended it) - it was fantastic.

I'll include the recipe for the burger below.

Burger Ingredients:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 medium red onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
We cooked the burgers on the BBQ - turned out great for my first attempt at a home made patty.  Don't think we will buy frozen burgers again.  

See you on day 6 =D

WHOLE30 Day4

Day was I tired today. I had the day to myself today - so, got some Easter shopping done and my hair cut.  It had been a while so it felt great to get a bit chopped off - very healthy - which is the theme of this blog ;)

I will admit, though, Easter shopping was difficult.  I LOVE Cadbury Mini Eggs.  I would usually get hubby and I a chocolate bunny and a bag of Mini Eggs for each of the kids baskets- but knowing that we are unable to have any sugar, I decided to skip the mini eggs as having them in the house would be a huge temptation for me.  NSV!

On for meals.  Forgot to take a pic of breakfast but I had the same as yesterday with the same lunch.

Dinner today was pork, asparagus and broccoli and cauliflower which was the only good part of the meal.  The pork was incredibly dry, took all I had to choke it down.  The asparagus was underdone so overall this dinner was a fail!

We found out that Lo's baseball practice was cancelled so we decided to have a family movie night - Into The Woods. Not a fan...but man was I exhausted - I fell asleep on the couch at 8:45 and slept through the last 1/3 of the movie.   This chicky is off to bed - can barely keep my eyes open.

WHOLE 30 Day3

Hello Day 3!
Head ache was still lingering all day today, but thankfully it wasn't as horrible as last night - Advil has been my friend today. I was in a busy full day kindergarten class today, so if my head was pounding, I'm not sure I would have made it through the day.

Breakfast today consisted guessed it! Eggs...with some tomatoes and strawberries.  

Lunch was the same - chicken and vegetables.  

For dinner, I stir fried some steak, peppers, broccoili and shredded carrots in some coconut oil.  Placed it over cauliflower rice.  It was delicious.  The kids loved it which I was surprised about as it was s tiny bit spicy. There are a bit of leftovers so I need to figure out a way to incorporate them into another meal.  

Feeling pretty tired this evening, which I think is pretty normal during the beginning of the program.  There is an interesting article about the timeline of the Whole 30.  Here's the link:
Whole30 Timeline So far, the way I'm feeling is pretty spot on.  

On to Day 4.
How were you feeling at the beginning of your whole 30?
