Day 20

Wednesday, January 25

Well look-ie-there. This day has a 2- in front of it.

Today I will simply say what I’ve been sharing with people for several days now. I feel great. I have clarity. I have energy. I have lots of coconut products. I have no-band pull-ups and toes to bar and double unders. I have jeans and suits that fit. I have happiness. I have being awake enough in the car at 5am to sing Tim McGraw songs.

Sure, I don’t have pizza and ice cream and chocolate. But I also don’t have guilt. I don’t have mood swings. I don’t have hunger pains. I don’t have endless thoughts about my next meal. I don’t have pants that are too tight. I don’t have excuses. I don’t have hangovers. I don’t have to hit the snooze button and miss my workout.


WOD: 20 min AMRAP of either CINDY or MARY (I did CINDY)

CINDY: 5 Pullups, 10 Pushups, 15 Squats

I did 12 rounds plus 5 pullups and 8 pushups. I did purple band pull ups until about round 4 or 5 and then lost the band. In fact, as I told Janelle, “I’m done with this thing.” I get a much better kip without it.

CASHOUT: 6-5-4-3-2-1

Standing Inverted DB Cross (5# them are hard!) + Wall Ball Sit Ups/GHD Sit Ups (14#)

Water=7 bottles


Food: PWO 2 sweet potato egg puffs

Breakfast: Leftover chicken sausage and turnip hash w/ 2 baked eggs and 1/2 avocado


Lunch: leftover chicken enchiladas w/sweet potato delight (check out Pearl’s awesome grasshopper picture)


Snack: cucumber sliced w/ 1/2 avocado, handful of blueberries, handful of coconut and mac nuts

Dinner: “Breaded” Pork Chops

I modeled these after the chicken fingers recipe. I wanted something that the family would enjoy and that would stay moist during cooking. Oh, and that would work for leftovers too. So, all things considered, I started with 2 packages of butterfly pork chops, sliced each into 2, dipped in egg (I used 2) and then coconut flour and seasoning (old bay seasoning, salt, pepper). I browned in coconut oil in the skillet for about 1-2 minutes each side and then baked at 375 degrees on a cookie rack on a sheet for about 15-20 minutes.

The finished product was moist, got rave reviews, and is ready to go in the lunch bag tomorrow.


I also added another Whole Family Strong recipe (like yesterday’s enchiladas) Sweet Potato Cinnamon Hashies. WOW. I’m not sure I ate anything that tasted this good before the W30. These are fantastic and a real crowd pleaser.

I added some brussel sprouts and dinner was served!


Oh, and don’t forget, I have coconut manna………

    I am so jealous you have double unders, I think I have progressively gotten worse with those things! Way to go, it is awesome to see improvement in the gym. The first time I did this I don’t think I was getting enough fat and I felt weak and lightheaded in they gym.

    • Thanks Jess. Well, they come and go for all of us I think. Yes, I love seeing improvement and change. I think the coconut helps me a lot with the workouts. How are you feeling? Great I hope! Thanks for reading!

    “I’m done with this thing” that is awesome! You are doing great. Keep up the great work, it’s awesome to get to work out with you & watch this transformation……

    • Thanks Adam. You rock too. Thanks for all of the help with the rings today. I always appreciate how encouraging and supportive you are in the gym. You and Julie are doing great too and I’m so glad we’re “all in it together!”

    You are doing such an amazing job! So glad that you are setting your self up for success.
    When people ask my 7 year old about the Paleo Diet she starts out the conversation by saying, “well it’s really a lifestyle.” I love it! We are changing our lives and modeling a healthy lifestyle for the next generation. This is how change happens, and only good things can come from it.
    I am very proud of you, and it sounds like you are proud of yourself, as you should be. Be the change!
