Whole30 Day 19

My life has been thrown into a bit of upheaval with the new work schedule and acceptance to school, so please forgive the lack of photography the next few days. My whole routine has been turned upside down and I am trying to get all the pieces back into working order. Just try to imagine that everything I eat looks delightfully delectable.

I slept in this morning, which didn't leave time for much of a fancy breakfast. I heated up the rest of Sunday night's stir fry and added some scrambled eggs on the side. It wasn't the best breakfast I've ever had, but it got the job done. Now that my diet consists of mostly vegetables, fruits, meat and nuts it is much easier to picture stir fry as breakfast than it ever was before.

Today was the first day of my new job! I have a lot to learn, but I love being part of a medical practice that approaches wellness from a mind, body and spirit perspective. My Mom lives close to my new workplace and invited me over for lunch to spend time with her and my two nephews (so sweet). I had a mixed veggie salad with the rest of the arugula pesto shrimp from last night. Later in the afternoon, I snacked on some honeydew chunks (thanks to Kevin, he always takes on the task of chopping up the melons), organic blackberries and pecans.

Because of the extra sleep this morning, I had to squeeze in a swim after work. I have really started to love swimming, but I prefer going in the morning when the pool is less busy. I had to share a lane with two other people this afternoon and it was a little hard to get in the rhythm. I ate half of a Lara Bar before my swim and finished the other half after.

Because I was out of town this weekend, we didn't have time to grocery shop until tonight. By the time we were through at Trader Joe's it was already 7:00. We decided to pick up dinner from one of our favorite Cuban restaurants, Havana Rumba. I had a salad with lettuce, almonds, roasted red peppers and olives topped with grilled chicken. I, of course, had to add more vegetables and threw in some cabbage and avocado when we got home.

My dessert was a sliced banana, chopped figs, shredded coconut and pistachios with coconut milk...yum! It seems that no matter what life throws my way, at least I know my appetite isn't going anywhere. :)


  1. I am excited to see what school is going to be like! hah :)

    1. I wouldn't so much say excited as terrified :) Kidding, I am looking forward to digging in, but worried about the lack of sleep and free time.
