Whole30 Day 14: Special Delivery

My Journey: Whole30 Day 14

Whole30 day 14 is here and I can’t believe I have been doing this for two whole weeks already. If I wasn’t writing about this journey every day I would forget that I am on a diet. I don’t even consider it a diet because I am eating everything I ate before but slightly modified. I am learning that you can get creative and work around non-compliant foods without sacrificing flavor or feeling deprived. {Zucchini noodles will be a regular thing in this house.}

Today I got some happy mail and this box of condiments and salad dressing  {affiliate link} made me do a little dance in my kitchen. Truly, my biggest challenge on this journey has been finding delicious salad dressing without sugar and I have to say that Tessemae’s has the BEST products for the Whole30 challenge. {I can’t even tell you how much money I have wasted on crappy salad dressing.} Yes, balsamic vinegar and olive oil are always acceptable but gets boring real quick. Right now I am currently addicted to the Garlic Lemon dressing.

My Whole30 Day 14 Food {Menu of the Day}


  • Unstuffed Green Pepper Soup {I altered my recipe and made it compliant and I never missed the rice.}
  • Cashew Larabar {Not a fan.}


  • 2 turkey roll ups with salami, broccoli sprouts, chili lime mayo wrapped in lettuce
  • almonds


  • Blah-ck coffee {I was cold and wanted something warm. I am still not a fan but it is easier to drink.}
  • Lemon Larabar {Normally, I only eat one bar per day but not today.}


  • Taco Salad, mixed green and peppers, topped with seasoned group beef and Tessemae’s Southwest Ranch {affiliate link}
  • Roasted sweet potatoes

My Whole30 Fitness {Fitbit Steps}

It’s really hard for me to get steps in during the week. Excuse, maybe but I have a job that has me tied to my desk or sitting in meetings all day. I am not going to beat myself up just yet for being a slug because I am really working on a strategy to give myself more time away from my desk. To help make up for my lack of steps during the week I will focus on 10,000 on the weekends. Baby steps.

My Whole30 Feelings {energized & focused}

I am so full of energy and my brain feels turned on and fully engaged if that makes any sense. At work my team keeps commenting about how focused and driven I am and I have to agree. I am getting stuff done, I am getting organized, I am getting caught up and it feels damn good to be on this path. Like I said, I am working a strategy to give myself more time away from my desk and this feels right.

    I love reading this. I am not on Whole30 per say but am definitely changing to more of a high fat/low carb way of eating. I have already lost 10 lbs and an inch off my waist. It has been four weeks. I feel so much better. I am also at a sit down day job and feel like I should get up and walk more. But I am still losing so that is the main thing for me right now. I started this to cure my GERD and it is getting better. It is taking a long time but I am seeing improvement. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Michelle…I am so happy to hear the changes you made are working for you and the weightloss is happening too. I noticed lots of health changes in just the first two weeks so I can only imagine it will keep getting better from here.
