Hi, my name’s Pip and I’m a snackaholic.
I joke. Although yesterday it sure did feel like it. I was getting so frustrated by my continual hunger (you know those days, right?) that I nearly didn’t join Jenn’s food party today. I felt embarrassed, as I sometimes do, by sharing my eats out loud, for the world to judge. Silly really, we’ve all got to eat after all!
Yesterday started out at 7am (although I don’t think I left my bed until 7.20…). I had my usual favourite breakfast of eggs, fruit and nut butter, can’t get enough of this combo!
Oh and the best tea…
And then the best coffee… because, you know, essential:
I then headed to CrossFit for the 9.30am class. I am always reminded that although my stamina is still pretty good, my strength and explosive speed have rather a long way to go… We did this workout:
Warm-up on the rower (it was raining out so this made me happy!)
3 back squats every 2 minutes for 20 minutes
12-9-6 twice of kettlebell swings and burpees
Not too shabby! Just got to work on that strength 🙂 I actually felt really demoralised after this until I realise that the whole point I am doing this is to improve and I have already improved so much. Must. be. less. impatient.
CrossFit was followed by a handful of cashews:
I then sorted out all my jewellery. I know this sounds rather a pathetic task but since moving house I’m slowly going through all my stuff and getting rid of all the unnecessary junk that I’ve accumulated over the years! It actually took rather a long time…
All the way until lunch time! Which included this awesome burger, except I used turkey mince as I can never find chicken (or I’m blind, also possible):
I then curled up on my bed to do some uni work with only one break to FaceTime my best friend, naturally this involved a lot of hysterical laughter. That girl’s like my sister, love her!
And then the snack monster hit… I waited a good hour after lunch and then each snack to see if I was just taking a while to fill up but no luck. It was when I felt light headed that I decided it was a bit ridiculous – I’m not on a diet, if I’m hungry I’ll darn well eat!
And then dinnertime finally rolled around… I made cauliflower rice with various veggies and pan fried tuna steak. Super delicious:
But apparently STILL not enough as after dinner I was hungry AGAIN. Hello blueberry and banana smoothie in a bowl:
And then, exhausted, I flopped infront of the tv and watched NCIS. Because I’m cool like that.
So, thoughts on day 1 of Whole 30? I need to eat bigger meals! Hopefully this will stop the snacking because it’s really getting quite frustrating already… Whole 30 recommend to eat 3 meals a day rather than steadily eating all day, so let’s see how this goes…
What have you eaten this week? Any Whole 30 tips?
