Whole30: Day 15 Recap
From August 1 through August 23, I’m documenting my Whole30, including the when, what, where, and how much of my sleep, activity, food, and mood. Read about why I’m doing the Whole30 right here. Not familiar with the Whole30? Learn all about it here and get extra help with the Whole30 Daily.
Whole30: Day 15
Jude is here! And she’s even more sassy and lovely in person than she is in her captivating blog. We barely stopped to take a breath while we chatted about all the things we missed by being only online friends so far.
Also: CONGRATULATIONS! to everyone doing the Whole30. You’re halfway! Great job! Keep it up! You can do it! Your’re awesome!
8.5 hours — 10:00 to 6:30. (I forgot to take Melatonin last night, so I slept well but not nearly long enough.)
Walk: Jude and I strutted 4 miles around the lake at 6:30 p.m, and the temperature was still snuggling up to 100F. Shame on you, Summer!
I’ve found my appetite is less ravenous, and I feel better if I eat in a 11-hour window — usually between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. so I can stop eating about 2-3 hours before going to bed — and don’t snack between meals or before bed. Because I’m dealing with my thyroid experiment, I’m measuring and tracking my food right now. I aim for 40% fat, 30% protein, 30% carbs.
Breakfast, 6:30 a.m.
4 ounces grass-fed stew meat + 2 cups cabbage + 1/2 cup sweet potatoes + 1 teaspoon coconut oil + Tsardust Memories
1/3 cup raspberries
Lunch, 3:00 p.m. — Sap’s Thai
lettuce wraps w/ dried shrimp, coconut, ginger, and lime
tod mun chicken
yum green beans (green beans with chicken, coconut cream, shredded coconut)
beef coconut curry
Dinner, 9:30 p.m.
1/2 cup blueberries
We were still so satisfied from lunch, we didn’t have an official dinner. That’s right! Jude came to see me, and I didn’t even cook for her on the first day. Bad Mel!
Jude is here!

Song of the Day
Don’t Leave Me This Way, The Communards
Jude is wonderful for many reasons, one of which is that she agrees with me that this is a kickass song to have around.
How was your Day 15?
