Today is the day! Yes, I think Whole30 has finally fully kicked in. I woke up from an amazing night of sleep (no weird dreams thankfully) and felt refreshed and awake when my alarm woke me up. For the past two weeks, I felt like I was starving 24/7 and it kind of got hard to deal with; today was different, though. I have been moderately hungry around the times I normally eat and am craving healthy food! So I won’t ramble on about Pop Tarts, Reese’s, Ben & Jerry’s Half-Baked ice cream, or any other cheat that I would scarf down if they were Paleo.
I’m not bloated anymore, which is a huuuuge relief and I feel in control of things. The only sucky thing is that I woke up with a scratchy throat and it hasn’t gone away. I’m blaming allergies. I wouldn’t have bad allergies if I lived out in Scottsdale, Arizona…maybe someday… I saw something on the Today Show about housing there. I think it’s a sign (and if you can’t tell, I usually have the Today Show on every morning while I’m doing homework and other business).
I have to give thanks to my CF box, Fit Bodies, for making it hard to walk to class this afternoon. Here was the WOD:
run 800m then…
10 rounds of:
10 overhead walking lunges (25# plate)
10 ground to overhead (25# plate)
then… 800m run
My poor hammies were on FIRE! …and shoulders! It was a good Tuesday burner.
So I decided to add some new veggies to my list and I. am. jacked. Parsnips are freaking awesome. I first got the this past Friday at Station 220 and tried steaming them on my own tonight:
They taste like a delicate mix of banana and carrots; I usually hate hate hate cooked carrots, but these are awesome. And they’re easy to make! Just peel and steam. This little guy helped me peel. He likes overhead squats.
Okay, I had a lot more written but when I published it, it erased it all. It always does that and it makes me want to snap my laptop in half. I apologize I am not going to re-write it.
Ring ring! My dinner’s calling. Time to go!
