Whole 30 Challenge Day 18

Time is flying by all of us and sometimes we don’t even know it. I for can’t believe it has already been ten years since I have graduated high school. I did think I would have been going down a different path by now, and you know what I am! I am making decisions for me and not for what I think people want to hear. How does this have to do with food? Well to me  money isn’t the root of all evil food is. Food controls what we decide to do with others and for ourselves. Usually when people are invited to go to someones house what is the first thing you think? “Gee I hope there is food there” I know I do.  I am putting my proverbial foot down for my own future. I am making so many changes in my life that a lot of the “peanut gallery”  has so many negative things to say. People don’t seem to like change, I don’t like change either but when you are doing something for yourself you kind of get a jolt of happiness and that makes it alright. I have a lot of people who don’t seem to understand my life style change. Again I will say I have done a lot of research on Paleo before I started down this path. I am proof this “diet/lifestyle” change actually works. I have lost an entire dress size, lots of inches some weight and gained muscle. I couldn’t be happier. I think the biggest step I have made was creating this blog. So to all my naysayer’s it is not about you understanding what I am doing this is about me! I am taking baby steps today to create my future and what will lay ahead.

So for breakfast I made bacon (see bacon post for recipe) and eggs. I wanted to get a little creative so I took 3 pieces of bacon and laid the crisscross on each and placed an egg on top.

I also made a chocolate milk shake.

  •  1 tsp of coco powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • a few drops of vanilla extract
  • cinnamon.

For Lunch I will have some grilled salmon and sauteed bacon and kale.

I am working some overtime so I will be having a smoothie for my dinner. I will be bringing some snacks with me such as my lunch meat roll up and cashews.

I wish to encourage everyone to take their own steps into their future. I feel so encouraged with how much change I have already made.

  1. Keep up the good work. Makes me jealeous that you can eat bacon and I don’t dare because of the cholesterol. Just joking as you know I am happy for you and that you have lost an entire dress size. That is great. Love MawMaw

  2. OMG! Can I get an AMEN!? You’re darn right. It’s all about the baby steps, sister! I love what you are doing for yourself! (um….and is that our baby grilled featured??)
