Whole30 Diary Entry: Day 6

As you'll see if you read my Day 5 post, I'm entering my Day 6 Diary Entry a little bit late - toward the end of Day 7.

Just a quick summary: Because I laid around so much on Saturday, I had a hard time actually falling asleep on Saturday night (duh!). I got caught up in a book, and ended up reading until about 12:30 am. . then proceeded to sleep until 10:30am on Sunday. And I don't think I actually rolled out of bed until close to 11. . . BUT it went uphill from there!

I fixed myself breakfast, mapped out my meals for the week, and then took the dogs for a walk (since that's about the only exercise that I can do right now other then swimming, and the Aquatics center was closed all weekend for a swim meet). It was actually a really pretty day on Sunday, so the 2.5 mile walk felt great, and gave me the chance to soak up a little bit of sunshine, which brightened my mood considerably.

I spent most of Sunday afternoon doing laundry and prepping food for the week (chopping up all my veggies, making spinach muffins, hard boiling eggs, and making a few "grab and go" lunches).

I felt much more accomplished by the end of the day on Sunday, and got to bed at a slightly more decent hour, although still not as early as I had hoped (10:30PM).

I snacked a bit more than usual again on Sunday, but not NEARLY as much as Saturday.

I think part of it has to do with it being the weekend, and the fact that I'm not rushing from one deadline to the next all day long - I'll have to be much more conscious of my snacking next weekend.

Hi! I found your blog while researching Paleo and Figure competitor. I was wondering, do you still compete? I'm looking to try Paleo but unsure of how to know how to track my macros for muscle building. Your meals look delicious, by the way!

Hi! No, I don't compete any more. . . The thing that I find I love most about the Paleo Diet (personally), is that I don't have to weigh and measure anymore. Once I have things dialed in, it's liberating to me to be able to eat three meals a day (and occasionally snacks) without stressing too much over hitting exact macros. I DO have a friend that still competes though, and is currently doing the Whole30 :) If you'd like to pick her brain, her Competition FB Page is here:

Her name is Rose Mary.

Good Luck!!
