Archive for the ‘whole 30’ Category

Well I have a feeling the whole 30 days are going to start sounding very familiar considering I’m eating essentially the same thing for a week at a time.  I know that doing my food this way will work for me, but won’t be very entertaining for y’all reading this.

I finally had the curry I made and it was honestly delicious!  I was pleasantly surprised.  I didn’t know what to expect, but I’m very happy with what I got.  And more times than I can count I’ve found myself so happy that I have pre-made meals that just need to be nuked.  I finally took my progress pictures (found below) for my past month.  I am very happy with the results to be completely honest.  Yes I know I have further to go, but coming from where I’ve been, I’m happy!

Hmm, what else has occupied my past two days?  Oh!  A big a$$ spider!!  I don’t know how many people know this, but while I was in the Army I was bit 4 flipping times on the top of my thigh by a brown recluse.  It happened while I was sleeping and I guess he kept biting me probably because I kept moving.  Yes, a nasty creepy crawler was IN MY BED!!  Mind you, before this, I wasn’t scared of spiders at all.  I was that person who let them live in the nooks and crannies because they ate the more annoying bugs.

Anyway, it was graduation/family day and I saw the “bug” bites but didn’t think anything of them.  They progressively got worse, but I refused to let some stupid allergic reaction stop my family day.  But, by 10 o’clock that night, the bites were filled with puss, there was an area about the size of a large dinner plate that was turning purple, and from knee to hip crease, my leg was bright red and inflamed.  I finally went to the hospital, found out what actually bit me, got the antidote (which felt like FIRE), and considered myself very lucky.  Since then, the only spiders that live when I’m around are easily identifiable ones, and they have to be little, like your average wolf spider.  Tuesday morning I went to pick up my cat’s food plate and holy shiz!! There was a huge spider guarding my cat’s food!  I flipped out and ran upstairs to get my Mom so she could kill it.  I was absolutely terrified.  We sprayed it and had to trap it under a bowl because it was bouncing around.  Later on I actually got my brother to get a good picture of it…  IMG_2039

Needless to say, pest control is coming out!

I will have an update as to what kind of spider it actually was in the next post!  Please oh please don’t let it be a brown recluse….

And now onto the before and afters…. Horribly lead in I know, but I was getting the heeby jeebies again….

IMG_2029I’m drinking at least 2 glasses of water as soon as I get up, and while I’m eating breakfast, if I need it I drink a small cup of coffee with 1/2 tbsp of liquid creamer (I know it’s not “on plan”).  I am working my way to black coffee since I honestly don’t drink coffee that often, maybe one a week or so.  I don’t drink any juice or soda, and I’m not adding any of the to-go packets into my waters.  I’m getting between 1/2-1 gal of water a day.

As for supplements I’m taking a multi-vitamin, fish oil, a blend of healthy aminos, calcium, probiotics, OxyElite, glutamine and BCAA’s.  If I’m training, I take two (pill) BCAA’s with that first glass of water in the morning and then while I’m working out I put a scoop of BCAA’s in my water to drink and refill as necessary.  If I’m not training, I just take the two in the morning.

If you have any questions about what I’m eating or have any ideas for me to try shoot them on over!!
