Whole30 Day 29

The usual...
I was rushed so I grabbed what was handy...the last of the turkey, banana, avocado & cuc
Salad w/beets & leftover meat from the kabobs + olive oil
Meatballs, julienned zucchini & broccoli

Exercise: 20 min strength (incline bench press, sit-ups, front raise) 10 sets/3 reps, 12 min HIIT (cross jacks, pike push-ups, fast feet, mountain climbers), 10 min Pilates + 40 min walk with the kids (with a break at the park).

Overall: I felt ready to take on the world today. The change seems to be dialing back on the dense carbs (i.e. sweet potatoes). Occasionally they are fine, but if I have them daily, in combination with fruit, it flips me out of balance. I just feel better when I eat lower carb most of the time with a whack every few days... I kind of knew this about myself, but being hyper aware of my food by doing the Whole30 has helped me figure out a few of my personal quirks. Day 30 tomorrow! Woo-hoo!

Today I'm cutting back on the carbs. I too feel better without a ton of starchy things. :)

Wow Tiff those workouts today are impressive! I can't eat many sweet potatoes, I just feel bloated and lethargic. Wooo day 30 tomorrow!

Yay for Day 30!!! I've also decided to cut back on the sweet potatoes. We were eating them every single day so now we're going to add them a few times a week instead.

Congrats on rocking this out for 30 days! Your meals have looked awesome, definitely inspiring me to do a little better with my own eating :D
