Went out dancing to a salsa club saturday with a few friends and it was fun, i am not used to wear heels anymore so my feet were killing me after a few hours hahaha. I love wearing heels so I guess I need to try to wear them more 😀 I must have missed the memo about it being a black/ white party. Almost every person in the club had a black or white top on hahaha. Oh and you can’t go out without taking the mandatory bathroom picture 😀

Today me and one of my friend went on a long walk with some hills and pushing a stroller about 7 km (4.4 miles), I was completely beat. But I had no time to take a nap before work. Just enough time to eat some lunch and prep my dinner. So I can’t wait for this workday to be over and go home and sleep.

Yesterday and today went by smoothly still have no sugar cravings, which is fantastic cause they suck hahaha. I decided to not have any cacao in anything I make just to make sure I don’t trigger any cravings. I live having cacao in my smoothies or bullet proof coffee. Yesterday I had a super yummy creamy smoothie for breakfast. I think I will make it tomorrow too.

Whole30 day 3-5 done whohooo :D a new brekfast recipe up!

Helloooo 😀 The Whole30 is going great and I feel good. I’ve had some busy 3 days with work, friends and having fun. Went to pick blueberries on friday with my friend. We got these berry pickers which made it a lot easier to pick the blueberries. However we didn’t like the surprise of spiders, ticks and some other creepy crawly things that came with it hahaha. We will go out again next week to get some more blueberries before the season is over.

I also changed gyms yesterday, or I quit my old on friday and signed up at a new gym yesterday. A lot of my friends go to this new gym so now I will join them. I think it will help me and motivate me to go to the gym more often, also we can push each other too.

So on thursday I tried a new breakfast and it was very good. I had it for breakfast for 3 days it was that good. I could probably eat it for a few more days. But I decided to not do that it might get boring then hehehe

Whole30!!!! Yup I am doing another one :) Started today :D

Hey all 🙂 I’m doing another Whole30 and I need it. Been eating really crappy this past 6 month, I’ve gained some weight too and it is time to make a change. So I am kicking it off with a bang! Last time I ended up being sick and stopped it. This time I am going to go through with it and I hope i won’t get sick again since I was just sick for a few days.

I am really excited because my co-worker and her husband is doing it with me. Well she already started last monday. She was too excited and couldn’t wait. So we will keep eachother on track 🙂

I forgot to weigh myself this morning so I will do so tomorrow. I also need to measure myself and take pictures to be able to see the change better 🙂

Day 1: I had not bought any groceries before I started this morning so I didn’t have too much to use for breakfast and lunch. I did go shopping after so now I have some good stuff to cook with 🙂

  • Breakfast: Berry spinach smoothie with 2 eggs
  • Lunch: Zucchini soup with shredded chicken
  • Snack: 1 egg and a banana
  • Dinner: Jamaican run down ( fish stew) with cooked green plantain and kale

Tomorrow I will begin my Whole30, some tips if you want to join

I’m excited to begin the Whole30 tomorrow. I am ready to eat healthy..I need it. I’ve not been eating as good as I should. Especially now during the holidays. So to get ready for tomorrow and make it easier to do these 30 days. Preparing is key to make it, if you don’t you are setting yourself up for failure.

Here is a fanstic article about your first Whole30 http://meatified.com/first-whole-30-part-1/  You should read it and part 2 http://meatified.com/first-whole-30-part-2/. To sum it up you commit to 30 days of eating real food for 30 days. This will help you reset your body and aid it to start healing your gut and to give your body a brake. And to do that, you must avoid all grains, added sugars, soy, dairy, beans, legumes or treats.

You can do it!

Prepare yourself for the Whole 30 mentally

You’ve already done a lot of this preparation if you followed my advice above. If you know what scares you, or where you may be vulnerable to sliding off the edge of the Whole 30 program, then you’re already miles ahead of the game! Next, I really recommend that you spend some time thinking about what you want to achieve through your Whole 30. And, no, weight loss on its own is NOT a good answer!

  • Are you trying to break your sugar habit?
  • Do you want to improve specific health concerns like joint pain or thyroid issues?
  • Are you trying to figure out how good your body can feel?
  • Do you suspect that you have food allergies or intolerances that you can narrow down in the reintroduction phase?

Preparing for your first Whole 30

Know what you can eat on the Whole 30

Obviously, this is crucial. At first the list of things you can’t have on a Whole 30 program may seem overwhelming. People seem to spend more time worrying about this than anything else. But in many ways, it’s very simple! You can eat real, unprocessed food of any kind: meat, fish, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruit, good fats and oils, plus small amounts of nuts and seeds. So far, so good! The chart below was created by Diane Sanfilippo ofBalanced Bites, but it’s a handy summary that applies to the Whole 30, too. Read the rest of her awesome post on the US Food Pyramid here!

This is Diane Sanfilippo from Balanced Bite's version of the Real Food Pyramid: it totally applies here, too.

But, to clarify, here is a list of things that are not permitted on the Whole 30 program:

  • Sugar: none whatsoever, of any kind. This includes natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup and agave nectar as well as chemical  / processed versions.
  • Processed Foods: this might seem obvious, but some processed foods are sneaky. Protein bars or powders are included in this!
  • Grains: this includes corn, which is not a vegetable, as well as so-called “pseudo-grains” like quinoa.
  • Dairy: the exception is clarified butter, or ghee – everything else is out.
  • Beans or Legumes: no peanuts, soy products or derivatives, peas or lentils, either! An exception: green beans, sugar snap peas and snow peas are a-ok as they are more pod than “bean”.
  • Potatoes: sweet potatoes are fine, though.
  • Vegetable oils: canola, sunflower and soybean oils are no go. Stick to coconut oil for cooking and olive oil for salads or dressings.
  • Any kind of “Paleo-fied” treats, goodies or recreations: no paleo pancakes, baking or versions of junk food.

There are some non-food items to be avoided, too: alcohol, drugs and tobacco are no bueno! Lastly: do NOT weigh yourself throughout the 30 days. That’s kind of missing the point in the same way as making “Paleo” pancakes. Here is a more detailed description of foods you need to avoid if you have any questions.

If you really want to understand WHY all of the above list need to be avoided, I highly recommend that you read (and re-read!) the Whole 30 creators’ book It Starts With Food. Seriously, the Kindle version of it is less than $10. It is the best foundation on which to start a Whole 30 and will show you how to take what you have learned from your own Whole 30 and apply it to your life long after your 30 days are over. You can also find plenty of starter information on their website, Whole 9 Life. If you still have questions about whether or not specific foods are allowed on the Whole 30 or not, you should check out this page, the official “Can I have…” page!

New Year, New Beginnings.. I am doing a 30 day clean eating challenge

Hi hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Years eve celebration. I surely did, spent christmas with family and New Years with friends. Since it is a new year i know a lot of people feel that with a new year there are new beginnings and potentials. Like starting over or geting another chance. Though this can be done any day or time of the year it seems like many need this, giving them a clean slate to start fresh. So lets 🙂

2014-12-24 22.01.30 2014-12-24 23.07.54 2014-12-25 19.12.40 2014-12-30 19.01.20 2014-12-31 19.59.00 2014-12-31 23.16.14 2014-12-31 23.36.20 2014-12-31 23.36.31 2015-01-01 00.03.56 10888475_10155073877545455_6580314938725346629_n 10898052_897677303584910_3811306898157715685_n

We tend to have some new years resolutions, which for most are hard to follow through or to continue with. WE tend to fall back into our same old habits. The best way to actually follow through is to not just say what you wish to do, but to also write down what it is and how you want to do it. How you can follow through and not start too hard because most people fall off the wagon. If this is you then write down your ‘bigger’ goal, then brake it down to smaller feasable goals on the way. And celebrate and reward yourself for reaching the smaller steps. It can be someting like getting a massage, doing something you love, you don’t have to reward yourself with ‘bad’ food.

Whole30 Day 27-30!!! Yummy recipes :D

Food food food food I love food 😀 I am learning so much and I am super happy for the internet and google. The inspirations are endless. On sunday I made some crock pot italian meatballs recipe below, original recipe here. On monday I ended up getting sick at work and I was sick all week ..feeling fatigue and heavy in my head with flu like symptoms. But my spirit is feeling fantastic hahaha. So I didn’t work out at all this week..letting my body heal. On monday eve I made some really good ice cream and on tuesday my friend came over for lunch and I made some delisious salmon with broccoli rice and of course some ice cream for desert 😀 She loved it by the way. She got so inspired to eat healthier now. Yes you can eat really really good and still eat healthy 🙂

So my Whole30 is completed and this time it was harder then the last 2 times, partially bacuase I ended up with stomach issues. So I had to eat more fruits and smoothies to combat it. Then I had to fast for my check up. I also had sugar at 2 different occations. However I am happy I did it and it may not have been 100% clean…but atleast I tried. It is better to attempt and fail then to not attempt at all 😀 I did inspire one friend to do it with me, and she did very well lost a lot of inches. I also inspired antoher friend to try it…the one I cooked for on tuesday ;D
