Whole 30 – Day #9

Starting off with 9.5 hours of sleep helps!  Also got a treadmill run in the morning.  Great way to start a day! Work offered to being in Panera for lunch.   And I think partly because I asked for some healthy options.  But upon exploring their website, I find that they add sugar to their chicken (!) and their dressings are soybean oil based.  So I politely declined and went out by myself.  I still made a (wrong) uneducated guess at lunch though.  Dinner was While Foods again.  Safe and a good travel choice if you don’t want fancy sit down.  

  • 2 Hard Boiled Eggs (from Whole Foods)
  • Banana
  • Pistachios


  • Chipotle – salad with chicken, peppers/onions, guacamole, salsa verde – after eating this I realized I had not checked chipotle ingredients?  I don’t know why. But guess what chicken and peppers/onions are cooked in rice bran oil (whatever that is).   Now do I start over?  I maybe should, but I am not going to.  Maybe I just do a whole45? I don’t want to count this as a defeat.  Just lesson learned.  

Afternoon Snack:

  • More of those yummy cashews!
  • Hot herbal tea 


  • Hotel Fridge and pre-buying breakfast!
  • Not caving to bad options.  
  • Speaking up for myself
  • Got to read at lunch. 🙂


  • Always (consistently) research.
