Day 2 of Whole30

Day 2
Yesterday my main man (MM) made a yummy breakfast of eggs, sausage, spinach and tomato.  Very filling and very good.  Today, he had an early class.  So I was on my own.  No cereal, toast or bagels for breakfast, since wheat products are another off limits area for Whole30 (this is only for 30 days and the goal is to identify food sensitivities, allergies, and problem makers).  Really, not a big deal, because in the past I have tried to limit grain products based on the concepts from a book called Wheat Belly (by William Davis).  So,  instead I had some sausage (for my protein) and fruit (for my carbs).  I also restocked the fridge and pantry as we were getting a bit low on the fresh items and I needed some of the allowable snack items I like.

Chapter 2: Our Nutritional Framework
Thankfully, the chapters are quite short, providing me with a quick read each day.  This chapter introduces the upcoming 5 chapters which will cover the “science-y stuff” providing the foundation for the Whole30 concept.  My MM appreciated the upcoming chapters because he is definitely a why person and not just a how person.  I sort of am too.

Went for an easy run today.  Knee pain, nonetheless.  Hoping Whole30 will identify a food culprit for my joint pain.  A bit fuzzy brained and tired.  Could be from my recent travel and trying to catch back up on everything.   Some sugar cravings.   But I’ve had way too many sweet treats lately so it’s a much needed elimination.

2 down, 28 to go.


About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
