Day 9 – Whole30 (Tiger Blood)

We made it to day 9 of the Whole30 and it really has not been that bad. BF has been cooking up some great meals with a lot of variety… I’m actually preferring his meals to eating out at my favourite restaurants

So the Bad: DAY 3-4 was insane. I’m a sensitive person and everything was 10-fold heightened these days. Day 4 I felt like I was in the Wacky Wednesday Dr. Seuss book – morning started with a toe stub, then I choked on the steak in my egg scramble  (BF saved the day with his version of the Heimlich). Then had a garage sale and made $2. Looking back, at the time seemed way worse than it was. There were tears and I was missing comfort treats like beer and wine and scotch and French fries but I resisted.

The GOOD: Around day 7 I think I started to really feel on the up side of things. Allergies started clearing up (I can breathe through my nose again). My head is clearer – I have had a noticeable change in my ability to formulate and explain my thoughts verbally (something that used to frustrate me). I feel Happy, on a bit of a high (maybe this is the Tiger Blood Whole30ers speak of?). No Migraines or vertigo to speak of. So much more energy to work out and energy to push out the sensitivity and negative thoughts. If this lasts I may not want to stop the Whole30.

Here’s some pictures of some of my favourite meals so far. For more of our meals check out lazyjuicer.com

Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead
Our cabin in #smithers was one of the many highlights on @route16_ca A view of #hudsonbaymountain and an adorable cabin in the woods... #explorebc #motorcycleroadtrip #motorcycle #roadtrip #route16 #travelnorthernbc #cabininthewoods
A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
Loved the ride up to @barkervillebc I'm a sucker for historic towns. #goldrushtrail #explorebc so far we've made our way up #seatoskyhighway #duffylakeroad #route97 #cariboohighway next up @route16_ca #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x is rocking it.
Howe Sound view from the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Did my first ride of the Sea-to-Sky highway today. So much fun. Lots of corners but also lots of space since the hwy expansion in 2010. I remember driving this back in the 90's when it was single lanes. So much safer now. Did an amazing morning yoga class at the top. Highly recommend trying it! Classes start at 9:45 every weekday morning (taught by @northyoga_ ). Today's class was Yang to Yin... a perfect mix of flow and deep stretches for all levels #yoga #explorebc #seatoskyhighway #seatoskygondola #roadtrip #girlsthatride #moto #view #nature #yogainnature #yogaview #motorcycle
