31 Days of Whole Food: Day 1

It's the end of day 1 and caffeine is kicking my butt! I am always jealous of my husband because if he misses a day of drinking caffeine, it has no effect on him. I tried to wean and cut back on my coffee intake last week, and I still have a raging headache. Which has been awesome while I dealt with a sick kid, a dr appointment, studying for an exam, driving an hour, taking a test, driving another hour, getting patient information at the hospital and I'm finally home again to complete an assignment for the morning.

But quite honestly, this is par for the course with my life right now.

However, it's been a mostly successful day of eating whole food.

Pre-workout: small banana (ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill)
Breakfast: 2 eggs cooked in coconut oil, veggies, small banana (I don't know if I needed another banana, but I did feel more satisfied after eating it.
Snack: handful of pistachios
Lunch: Ground beef (organic) with italian spices and spaghetti squash. This was my first time ever cooking and eating spaghetti squash and I was super surprised how much squash it made! I can eat it for days.
Snack: KIND bar. This was my only deviation. I noticed it was in the cupboard and I knew I needed it gone. It was a low sugar variety, but still had some non-whole30 ingredients.
Pre-dinner: LARABAR
Dinner (8pm): Re-heated grilled chicken thigh.

It was a weird evening with my schedule, so dinner wasn't normal. I may find something else to eat before bed but not sure.

So, day 1 is a wrap!
