Whole30 Day 27

The usual :)
Turkey salad w/sundried tomato dressing + grapes (yep, I was feeling lazy)
Spinach, turkey & beet salad drizzled with olive oil (again, feeling lazy)
Burger, roasted carrots & sauteed kale w/bacon
Exercise: Strength (deadlift, shoulder press, bicep curl) 6 sets/5 reps + 20 min Pilates. Oh yeah, and I deadlifted 100 lbs on my last set. Progress! I skipped the HIIT today since I've still got some lingering nasal and chest congestion.

I did a bit of home remedy therapy last night. Not perfectly Whole30 because it had honey in it. My mom always gave us hot water w/lemon, honey & cayenne when we were sick as kids. I was out of lemons, so I used fresh grapefruit (from my tree), honey, cayenne and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Honey helps thin mucus. Since I was having some shortness of breath last night, I felt the compromise on the Whole30 was acceptable. And I feel much better today!

Overall: Feeling good again today. Energy galore. In control. I got a little grumpy with my husband this afternoon, but that's most likely because he loves to push my buttons lol.

One other thing, today, while doing pilates, I noticed I could see the mat through my legs. *gasp* See that gap? lol. My thighs aren't touching in that one spot! Woo!

Whooooo hooooo! Inner thigh GAP! Haha! My grumpy mood last week had nothing to do with the Whole30. I'm realizing that now. Stress/sickness is a big part of life though so I'm appreciating the challenge during the whole30! I'm trying to look on the bright side. ;)
