Whole 30 Challenge Day 3 & 4

Ok, folks. The struggle is real.

I’m in the beginning (and hopefully near ending) stages of craving EVERYTHING. I even drove by Taco Bell on my way home from work, and salivated. AND I HATE TACO BELL!! It’s so disgusting, but all I can think about is greasy, fatty food and warm, fudgy chocolate sauce. Ugh.

But. I’m powering through.

While I am being honest and upfront with this blog – I do want to admit that I had a snack cracker pack this morning on my way into work. (Fail on grains/cheese/processed foods) This morning for breakfast, I heated up my Chicken Sausage Hash, but one bite in, and I could tell it was on its last leg (I cooked a big portion on Sunday). The celery and potatoes were soggy and the chicken just did not taste so good, so I threw it out. I was already running late for work, so I scarfed down a few pieces of pineapple and strawberry with coconut, but before I was out of our apartment complex, my stomach was already growling again. I knew it would be a rough day if I didn’t eat anything until lunch, so I stopped at 7-eleven. I prayed there would be a Lara Bar or something compliant but could not find anything. So i grabbed the closest thing to me, a small pack of cheese crackers, and went on my way. While this was not the best decision, the crackers kept my fire going until I ate lunch.

Anyways…on to what I ate:

Day 3:
Breakfast: Chicken Sausage Hash + strawberries
Lunch: Homemade Stir Fry (same as previous 2 days)
Snack: Strawberries/Pineapple + coconut
Dinner: Steak, sweet potato fries, brussel sprouts

Day 4:
Breakfast: Cheese crackers
Lunch: Homemade Stir Fry with a side of strawberries and coconut
Dinner: Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Overall, not too bad, other than the stupid crackers. But. I’m not going to kick myself about this. I sucked it up and made the rest of the meals today count.

So. Moving on.

My headaches are pretty much gone now. I’m also drinking SO much water during the day. I’m still missing dairy, flavored drinks (like Fruitwaters) , and just a little sweet dish after dinner. I mean c’mon..sugar free jello? Nope. can’t eat that either. Blerg.

Whole 30 Days 5, 6, and 7 will occur over the weekend – the hardest part of the week to stay on track – so I’m really hoping I can make this happen.

Y’all have any ideas for meals for next week?
