WEEK 3: MUSINGS ON TEX-MEX AND WHAT IS ON MY PLATE THIS WEEK

I cannot believe it is week 3. It has been frigid cold this week, and I am struggling with old feelings about food. When I was young every time there was a cold snap my mom would load us up and take us to eat Tex-Mex. I loved this experience… the chips, the guacamole, the cheese enchiladas! It was a rare treat because my mom only liked to go to Casa Ole when it was very cold out. SOOOO… needless to say I always crave some good old dirty Tex-Mex when the weather is cold, and that is why tomorrow we rock tacos! I am hoping that will stop my desire to dive face first into a bowl of chips and not come up for air until the manager of Chuys asks us to leave because my face buried in the chip bowl is making people uncomfortable. Check out my plan for week 3 below!

READY… SET… EAT! MENU AND GROCERY LIST INCLUDED FOR WEEK 2

So I am done with week 1, and I have discovered that every time I embark on a Whole 30 journey it gets easier. I am not experiencing headaches, or hunger pangs, but I am still grieving some of my old food friends. I have been in a panic at the thought of not having some good old dirty tex-mex for 100 days, but oddly enough that thought is even fleeting. I am feeling really ready to do this! So ready in fact that I spent what felt like a terribly long time making a menu and a grocery list for anyone who wants this to be their week to whole 30 on!  I am now very aware of why people charge money for meal plans and grocery lists, but I truly believe that if I can help one person find their way to health and fitness than I am paid in full!

I AM SO FINGERNAILS Y’ALL! 5 STEPS TO NO MORE NEGATIVE SELF TALK

Every time I go to the nail salon I am told that I have beautiful nail beds. If I am being honest I am not exactly sure what a nail bed is, or what makes mine long and beautiful, BUT who doesn’t love being told they have something… anything beautiful? Imagine if we focused on all of the beautiful parts of us instead of focusing on the flaws we stare at in the mirror or in photos everyday? How much time do we waste criticizing ourselves for physical flaws? How many tags do we remove on Facebook because we do not look the way we want? How many times do we hide behind our kids/friends in photos because we don’t want our size to show? How many times do we repeat to ourselves this phrase… ” I am fat” ? Guess what? WE ARE NOT FAT! We have fat, but we also have fingernails, and that does not make us fingernails. However, in my case since I have been told I have great fingernails I am choosing to be fingernails y’all not fat! I am fighting a battle of no negative talk. I feel so good on the inside that I am hopeful to change the old, tired, negative dialog in my head. How will I undo the decades of self loathing and chatter in my head telling me how I am not awesome? I have a plan! See my step by step  below, and join me on this journey of feeling good from the inside out no matter what size your body is!

1. GRATITUDE! Wake up and meet everyday with gratitude! First thing I will do when I wake up is say thank you for three things. Example: Thank you for my health. Thank you for my Family. Thank you for Coffee 🙂 It doesn’t have to be perfect it just has to be gratitude. I promise that when you are grateful for all of the little things around you that you will notice more and more of them and that will keep you focused on the good!

2. MOVE MY BODY! Everyday I will move my body. It can be a walk, yoga, dancing, cycling, or BODYPUMP. Movement is necessary to keep the blues away, and we all know blues lead to negativity and that leads us to that never ending negative chatter.

3. EAT REAL FOOD! I am staying away from processed foods and drinks ( hello splenda I am talking to you) I am also focusing on avoiding sugar and grain. I plan to eat a protein, fat, and fruit/ vegetables at every meal. I know that when I nourish my body with clean fuel that my mood improves ( side effect: the fingernails get stronger and the fat gets blasted)

4. FOCUS ON PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION! I will take each day as it comes and I will be grateful for the small choices that I make on the path to living my happier, healthier life. EVERYNIGHT I will say thank you for three more things that happened in my day.

5. I WILL NOT USE THE WORD FAT UNLESS IT IS IN REFERENCE TO MY FOOD! I will be focused on how I feel and not how I look! I AM FINGERNAILS NOT FAT!

Keep sparkling y’all! I hope you join me on changing the chatter in your head!

Days 27&28: CALL ME GOLDILOCKS BECAUSE THIS PORRIDGE IS JUST RIGHT!!!

Days 24 & 25: IT’S THE FREAKIN WEEKEND! NEXT WEEK’S PLAN IS IN PLACE!

Do you find that weekends are your biggest challenge on the Whole 30? I do… it is an out of my daily routine time filled with potential food land mines. Just today I watched my husband and kiddos enjoy funnel cake at a carnival. I actually did not want even a taste of that fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar. Being Whole 30 has been a life changer. I know there will be days when I enjoy fair food and that I will not stay Whole 365, but being at a fair with the family and not pigging out on fair food has been an out of this world experience for me. I didn’t feel deprived at all I just simply didn’t want any. That being said weekends can be full of potential pitfalls, so to stay strong I use it as my planning time. I search for new recipes or I find activities to keep me busy. This is my last weekend and I am so close to the finish line I have no desire to de-rail my 30 now! I have listed my menu for the week below and also listed my meals and workouts for days 24-25 enjoy and SPARKLE ON Y’ALL!

GROCERIES GALORE! WEEKLY MENU PLANNED AND LINKS INCLUDED BELOW!

I go cruising the grocery aisles and find so called healthy products on the shelf that are full of added sugars and fillers. It is so frustrating to see that the food we consume is loaded with junk that simply isn’t needed. On this Whole 30 journey I have had to go on the hunt for foods without sugar and at times I have to go to specialty grocery stores to find these items… why does fish sauce have to have sugar in it? Red Boat is the only brand that I have located that isn’t full of junk by the way!
Ok, RANT OVER onto my re-cap of days 16-19! I HAVE 10 DAYS TO GO!
I am more in touch with my with my true hunger/craving feelings and while I have thought lately of random food like cheese and crackers, or bite size snicker bars, or pumpkin spice latte it has been a fleeting thought.
Yesterday I spent 7am-2pm at a fitness expo where I either participated or taught in 3 hours worth of classes. I was very proud of myself for packing up my own food and sticking to it, although this event had a lot of healthy choices-most do not. I was not tempted once to go and grab a mini bag of M&Ms ( yes fitness events are usually full of junk food we workout to eat people) OR to go to a restaurant and pig out on chips and queso. I had planned to make an easy dinner for my family and that is what I did I came home and made the best chicken ever and it was DEEEE-LISH! I am writing about this because this is literally the very first time in my fitness career that I didn’t use food as a reward! THIS IS HUGE! In the past I would feel hungry in that phony way- that mental way, ” girl you just worked out like crazy you deserve it and you are starving” that was the loop in my head. So my lesson learned is that in fact I live in the suburbs with access to plenty of food, and that I am in fact, not starving after a day of fitness, fun, and fellowship with my fitness friends.
I am looking forward to trying out a new recipe this week, and preparing my family’s favorites, and those lingering silly conversations had at the dinner table. SPARKLE ON Y’ALL!

Day 5: MENUS, AND GROCERY LISTS, AND LINKS OH MY!

So, after a busy day 4 I sat down with my computer to make a menu and a grocery list. This process is not exactly fun, however it is necessary you MUST plan for your success or you will end up hungry and craving and find yourself sitting on the kitchen floor with a box of Cheez-it crackers and Little Debbie snack cakes!
Step 1: Ask family if they have any requests (my husband asks for Best Grilled Chicken Ever every week)

Step 2: PINTEREST LIKE A BOSS! I also follow some great whole 30ers on Instagram ( check out and follow wholesisters and whole 30 recipes)

Step 3: Make a menu. I always use Microsoft One Note because I can access it from my computer and it syncs to my phone and my tablet. I like to be able to tweak my list or add ideas for the next week on the fly. If I see something on Pinterest I can just add it to my one note notebook, and it is there for me when I am ready to plan for the grocery trip ahead.

Step 4: Make a grocery list. Again, I use my Microsoft One Note app for this. Since it syncs to my phone I have it there at the grocery store and delete the items as I go. I am a creature of habit and every Sunday I go to the same grocery store with my husband and our little guy. I make my list according to the way we cruise the aisles. If you know your grocery store like this it will keep you on a mission and less tempted and end up on the junk aisle. The best news ever is after your first 15 days or so you won’t even crave or think about the good old junk in the junk aisle. I do end up on the junk aisles because I have to feed my kids. They eat the meals I prepare, but I do feed them grains, and I am sad to admit too much sugar.

Here is my menu for the week ahead! The links to the dinner recipes are included below and I have also included my grocery list so you can see how I plan for the big shopping excursion.

You can also do a steak and sweet potato with green veggies. Also salad with just olive oil and vinegar for dressing works too! REMEMBER It Is only 30 days you can manage dinner out without breaking your commitment to yourself of having 30 days to eat real food!
