Whole 30 Day 6 - Mistakes are a learning opportunity

Hi all,
This is Rina. I have been working with Sophia for the past 6 months trying to spread the word about the wonderful Grass Fed Jerky Chews. I have been eating a pretty clean Paleo/Low Carb diet for the past few years, but still decided to jump right in and try the Whole 30. I'll be blogging daily about my experience for the next 30 days. 

Breakfast - 3 eggs in ghee, 1/2 avocado, leftover tiny portion of green beans and asparagus. I was pretty full for a while.

We went to the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. I was itching to walk and move. Did a lot of walking. My family got tired of the museum around 3pm and they were hungry. While I chewed on 1/2 oz macadamia nuts and a  handful of coconut flakes, everyone else was munching on granola bars, sandwiches and fruit. My family is completely not into Paleo, they are carb junkies and still eat processed food, even though I try to limit the quantity and quality of this food. 

We went to the mall and ate at the food court. While the kids munched on noodles and chicken, I had BBQ chicken and broccoli. 

It was ok, but I am sure their BBQ sauce was full of crap. I did not feel full like I do after a home meal. I also think that the protein portion was too small for me.

I learned during the past week and most of all the past 2 years of weight loss and health gain journey, that I feel best when I move.  When I walk/jog/run/exercise, I don't have appetite/binges/cravings. I feel great and I make naturally good food choices. It took me a long time to understand something trivial and simple. I had to experience it several times, make many mistakes and recover in order to learn. 

Dinner - I still had no food at home, so I quickly sautéed mushrooms, zucchini noodles and dried tomatoes in olive oil and tomato paste. For protein, I quickly defrosted Trader Joe's grass fed beef hamburger in a little coconut oil.
I was still thinking about food, and although not feeling hungry, I wanted to have something, so I had herbal tea. 

Another day passed without much planning. Still sticking to the While 30!
