Whole 30: Day 4
Apparently I’m really embracing the whole “rest if you need it” thing this week. I took another unscheduled rest day this morning, and I feel just fine about it. I slept like a rock last night and just really didn’t want to leave my pillow when the alarm went off this morning. So I didn’t.
Spot on! Went to a movie last night (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) that coincided with dinner time, so I packed Dino-Chow Happy Meal to eat during the movie. Can I get a ‘hell, yeah’ for giant handbags?!
In no particular order, yesterday I ate: happy cow hamburger patties, chicken sausage, spinach, green beans, beet tops, cucumbers, jicama, tiny organic peaches, avocado, olives, and a few bites of Sunbutter.
Only 7 hours but it was solid as a CrossFitter’s core.

Not food logging continues to work – because for 8 months I diligently logged every bite so I could learn how to eat properly. Now I just eat the same way without writing it all down, and still weigh my protein because I never eyeball it properly. If you’ve never logged your food, you might try it and see if it helps you. If you’ve been logging for a while, maybe it’s worth trying a break? Think on it. Also you should know: my stomach is feeling flatter than it has been, and my jeans are loose in the waist and baggy in the butt. I’ve earmarked a gift card for the day I need to get new jeans. Woot!
