    Boo for not packing a lunch today. I am craving naughty food! Send strong thoughts my way as I navigate the food court :-)

    Day 3 - I finally remembered to take some measurements this morning! I also got a bit more organized last night and pre-made breakfast to take to work with me. Sadly, I didn't also pre-make lunch so it was back to the food court for me.

    Weight - 141 (This is waaay down from Friday when I was at 147. Water weight be gone!)
    BF% - 28.3%

    Goal:
    BF% in the "fitness zone" of 21%-24%
    Weight: whatever it happens to be once I get my BF% in the "fitness zone"

    Food for the day:

    On the bus:
    coffee with coconut oil

    Breakfast:
    3 ham/egg cups with broccoli
    water

    Mid-morning:
    black coffee

    Lunch:
    Greek salad with chicken, no feta

    Mid-afternoon:
    white tea
    handful cashews
    handful trail mix (almonds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, cranberries, goji berries)

    Dinner:
    chicken fajita on collard green wrap with salsa and tahini

    After-dinner debauchery:
    I tested some Nutty Blueberry Protein Balls from Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals, and a piece of Caveman Banana Nut Bites that I found online. Mmmm. I was making "treats" for the 2-day meeting I'm going in tomorrow. I figure if I can control the break time food, I'm less likely to break down and have a cakey muffin or doughnut. Now I'm about to make some "Creamy Hot Cocoa" and settle with a book in bed.

    Good night everyone!

    Hey Sandamel,

    I am on Day 3 as well (doing a Whole30). Looks like you did well for yourself, even without packing a lunch. Good job! Those Nutty Blueberry Protein Balls sound interesting. I'll have to remember to look those up. For now though, I have the pumpkin coconut pudding which will last the rest of the week.

    Ooh, I love pumpkin and coconut! Sounds delish. Good luck with your Whole30. I'm doing a no-name food log thingy-ma-jiggy, lol.

    Bah, must stop checking the Interwebs in bed. Could be one of the reasons I'm not sleeping super awesome Have a fabulous night!

    Hi there!
    How's your sleep going!
    Today I discovered that by eating a big breakfast, I am much less hungry all day long. I think Ive felt less carb cravings... Thankfully happening near a meal so that the little urge was quenched.
    Im a bit nervous, tomorrow I have a dinner party, so I will put all my effort to resist the temptations!!

    Hey, great job on eating the bigger breakfast! Glad it's keeping you full. I'll be thinking of you during your dinner party!

    Today was a bit of a gong show for me - coworkers in town for all day meetings including fancy lunch and dinner. I cheated on my no sugar challenge at dinner. Le sigh... Tomorrow is a new day, right?

    Day 4 -

    On the bus:
    Coffee with coconut oil

    Breakfast:
    1 ham / egg cup with broccoli

    Morning snack:
    1 blueberry protein ball
    1 piece banana nut bar
    Black coffee
    Water

    Lunch:
    Steak au poivre with side salad
    Water

    Mid-afternoon snack:
    1 blueberry protein ball
    1 piece banana nut bar

    Dinner:
    2 small glasses red wine
    Duck breast with side vegetables
    Water
    1 bite of someone's mint Nanaimo bar
    1 bite of someone's home-made maple walnut ice cream
    Black coffee

    PHEW!! I've eaten so much today. Time for bed. Good night folks!

    Day 5 - it was the second day of meetings with all of my work unit's staff. Luckily I was able to have a little less of a pig-out today than yesterday! And hopefully things will get back to normal starting tomorrow and I can exercise a bit more and stop with the gratuitous snacking.

    On the bus:
    Coffee (espresso) with coconut oil

    Mid-morning:
    Black coffee
    Water
    1 blueberry protein ball
    1 piece banana nut bar

    Lunch:
    Asian chicken salad (greens, chicken, red peppers, and more)
    Water

    Mid-afternoon:
    Black coffee
    1 blueberry protein ball
    1 piece banana nut bar

    Dinner:
    Chicken fajita with collard green wrap
    Coconut hot chocolate

    Phew it's been quite the week. I have the day off work tomorrow but I'll be up late tonight working on homework that's due tomorrow and up early to study (actually to cram!) for three tests I have to take tomorrow afternoon. I need a little fairy to come help me organize my time so I can be more on top of school work!

    Hey! Nice going on day 2 of meetings! My hat's off to you...

    I must say that I am a proud "no thanks, no bread for me" and "your want some of my fries" kinda person!

    And having a big ass steak and side salad, it came with fries, but did not touch any single one of them!!!

    I could not resist dessert though: strawberries and whipped cream (sweetened unfortunately).

    Good for you for saying "no" to bread. Bread is one of my weaknesses but so far, even at the restaurant last night, I was able to say no too. But it was fresh-baked so it was soooo hard!!
