Today. ;o(

September is right around the corner (2 days to be exact).  Which means that it is almost time for the 30 day Whole Foods-No Crap Challenge! WoooHOO!
 Need accountability? I have created an album in the Facebook page for us to share our meals and workouts during the Challenge!

Our weekly menu:
Do you think is time for us to invest in some new markers?  Anyway, this menu is for our weekly family meals therefore, under lunches, the sandwich area are school lunches for my son Christian.  I will be having salads for my lunches.

We have decided on Insanity for our workouts during those 30 days. We will also be incorporating weight training into our workout routine. Shocking, I know...  Noticed I used the word "we", this is because my hubby is joining-in the challenge! Yey, for supportive husbands!

As always I will share what we do on here, Instagram, Facebook and twitter.  I encourage you to do the same!

Are you ready?  I can't wait to start, you'll see why in a second...
For breakfast today I had my latest "go-to" meal: 2 hard boiled eggs and an apple.  I swear hard boiled eggs and fresh fruit are my version of "fast foods".  Hard boiled eggs are such a great thing to always have in your fridge, great source of protein and the perfect pair to any salad or just to eat plain.

For lunch I had ground turkey over cabbage with jalapenos, brown rice, salsa and siracha.
I also had raw veggies, a laughing cow cheese wedge and a serving of gluten free crackers at work.

OK!  So here's where it gets ugly!  After what I call a "semi-stressful" day at work I came home to an empty house, hubby had gone out to pick up our FullCircle order and some groceries.  I have been craving carob chips all day and I could not wait to come home to have a serving of it. ;o)

 Then the unthinkable happened...
You see this lovely serving of almonds and simple and healthy looking, the perfect amount of sweet and fats...Well, it happened x 12!  I started with this hand and then went back for more, and then some more and then some more...Then I was craving something savory, so I grabbed a serving of gluten free crackers, hummus and veggies...WTH! But wait...

I went for what was left of my plain Chobani (about a cup) with cereal, more carob, more almonds, cinnamon, sunflower seeds and almond butter.  I could only eat half of this and decided to call this meal "dinner".
My stomach is was in so much pain.  The last time I ate this much was probably a year ago.  I totally binged!  So disappointed at myself!  I tend to listen to my body, I eat when I'm hungry and stop eating when I'm full.  Not today!  

I'm telling you I can't even move.  Not sure how I found the energy to come up here and type up this blog post.  I had planed to take today off from working out, but I don't think I can afford to at this point.  I'm waiting to be able to walk for my stomach to settle back to normal status so I can get a workout in. 

I'm not proud of today, I am actually embarrassed.  Do you ever have days like this? 


  1. Hey Yaitza! Hope you and the family are doing well. I can't believe it's almost September. I also decided to do a 30 day challenge for september. I"m doing the whole30 program ( which I'm very excited about. It's similar to what your doing, except absolutely no grains(including gluten-free), legumes, sugars, corn, dairy (except eggs), alcohol, or potatoes.

    I too have been over indulging and not staying as focused on what i'm putting in my body and it's time to refresh and get back on focusing on the good foods and craving less of the bad.

    Don't get down on yourself too much for your binge yesterday, there is a part of your subconscious that knows your about to do a whole foods challenge and wanted to indulge a little more than normal. it's perfectly normal to have days like that, it's what makes us human.

    I'll be following along during your challenge and myself will be talking about it and posting pics on instagram and my blog. So I can hopefully help the next person ready to take on the challenge. That is amazing you have the support from your family. It sure does help a lot when everyone is on board. I've got a couple of co-workers doing the whole30 with me so hopefully that will help.

    Good luck, chat soon.

    1. Hi Jessika! Happy to hear about your challenge! I know you'll do great! I found you on twitter. Thank you, I know that we all have our moments and you are absolutely right about subconsciously indulging to prepare for the challenge. I can't wait to see how your challenge goes. It is definitely easier when you have people supporting your healthy habits. Best of luck to you! Thanks for stopping by! ttys
