Whole30: Day 8!

Moving right along...

Today, I had to be at work for 7 am. Meaning i would need something i could grab & go for breakfast (I wake up as late as possible when i have to be at work that early!). Brad had boiled us some eggs the night before, i grabbed 2 of those, a banana, and stuff for lunch and afternoon snack & headed out.

Trouble is, i just did NOT want the eggs. So i ate the banana. By 10 am i was SUFFERING. I had the WORST headache, and i know it's because i hadn't eaten enough. And no protein. Just a banana. (Which is like the highest sugar fruit! Ugh!) Anyway, i took an excedrin and had some almonds, and then later finally got to go to lunch where i had hamburger (no bun) & steamed veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, squash, zucchini & carrots). It was DELISH! My head still throbbed until after i got home around 7pm. Geez. On my way home from work, i had an apple. And for dinner, i had eggs and a plum.

That's it! And lots of water!

I am so excited & happy it's day 8! Woohoo! We've got this! ;)

By the way... just so you know, I will not be weighing for this entire month. Whole30 asks that you not weigh & really, I want to follow their rules exactly! I will say that my husband did weigh on Saturday, after 5 1/2 days of the program and had lost EIGHT POUNDS! What the heck!? I said, "I'm definitely not weighing now! I probably lost two and i would be so mad at you!" Haha. MEN!

Y'all have a great week!


  1. One of my favorite easy on the go breakfasts is quiche cups. You make crustless quiche in a muffin pan. You can add whatever veggies and breakfast meats you like, bake at night, pop in the fridge and you have a quick breakfast all week. Serve it with a salad for lunch.

  2. Oh, quiche cups sound yummy! Anyway, yes isn't it so annoying how men can drop weight just like that and we struggle. Ugh! How are your clothes fitting? That's always a good indicator. Regardless, you're doing a wonderful thing for your health and hopefully, for your fertility. I'm so proud of you for making it a whole 8 days (and beyond, as I know you will!)

  3. Can you eat Smuckers peanut butter? That would be a quick way to add protein when grabbing something like a banana.

  4. Another fabulous day! Way to go!

  5. I love reading each day for a couple reasons:

    1. It motivates me.
    2. I love seeing you have one more successful day. I'm happy for you.
    3. I love seeing what you eat because then I realize things I can make and eat too.

    Katie really inspired me too but I love reading your days because I feel like I'm more like you where I STRUGGLE with eating right, instead of like her who seems to just "get it" and its all great and done. lol
