So it's been a while! I'm attempting to get back into blogging. Hope everyone has been doing well!!
I'm currently out of work :( My company moved to Georgia. So I'm on the hunt for a new job. It's slim pickings but I'm sure the right job will come along.
I've been working with my trainer again and hitting up the gym while I have the time. Unfortunately a few weeks ago I did something to my knee, it swelled up and was fairly painful. It is finally getting back to normal. We are modifying my workouts so I still get a good sweat session but protect my knee from further injury and letting it heal up.
I also got a Fitbit ChargeHR to help out. It's nice to see my steps, heart rate, active minutes, workouts and my sleep patterns. I join the step challenges with friends...it's fun to compete and cheer each other on. I'm currently doing the Workweek Hustle step challenge. I may not be working...but I'm still trying to hustle!
After a few too many weeks of eating completely out of control I decided to get serious and tackle another round of Whole30. My second week has just begun and I'm thrilled to say I'm down 8 pounds!! I know a lot of that is water weight...but I'm so happy to see the scale moving in the right direction again.
Here is what's been on tap for my meals:
Trader Joe's Bavarian bratwurst
Stuffed Apples (ground pork, chopped apple, onion, cranberries, cabbage, seasonings)
Baked egg whites (for me and Meadow)
Dump Ranch Dressing
Egg Roll in a Bowl
Fresh blueberries, cherub tomatoes, cherries, persian cucumbers, romaine lettuce
Some meal close-ups:
Stuffed apple and salad with dump ranch dressing
Egg roll in a bowl topped with avocado
Creamy coconut chicken & bacon over garlic cauliflower rice and salad with dump ranch

Also have avocado, bell peppers, onion, asparagus, spinach, lettuce, tomato, broccoli, carrots

Here's to a successful second week!
