I awake at 6:30 feeling well rested and hopeful that the Whole30 hangover is a thing of the past.
As I walk into the bathroom it seems like the scale became an octopus overnight and its legs are trying to draw me in. I really want to weigh myself – just for a second. It is funny to think that just a few weeks ago, I was fighting to resist a cocktail in How Can I Resist You? and now I’m trying to resist a scale. Life is crazy!
When I got downstairs, Tony asked if I would like him to warm up my soup. I was completely thrown off kilter because I drink a Yetti cup of water every morning and a cup of bone broth before I think about food. I said, “ok” and went about the rest of my morning routine. Minutes later, I realized he made the wrong soup. I was ready to blow a gasket. I have become really serious about my food since I started the Whole30.
After I dropped Drew off at school, I had to run to the grocery store to get snacks for Taylor’s tennis team. Within minutes of walking into the store, I realized I was hungry. How could I be caught without my snacks again? After everything I did to prepare in Gotta Fill The Healthy Whole30 Compliant Snack Bag – Fast! – really? I grabbed a bag of cashews off the grocery store shelf and started eating them in the middle of the store. I spent an hour in the store looking for the teams approved snacks and a few Whole30 foods and I’m the world’s worst grocery shopper. I left mentally exhausted and frazzled and in a bad mood. I decided it is time to start looking into some online shopping options and added it on my to-do list.
Once I got home, I warmed myself a bowl of the “right soup” and opened the Whole30 Day By Day.
Melissa suggests that today is a good day to remind ourselves of why we are doing the Whole30, so I took a few minutes to reread a blog post I recently wrote on my Why
My day is just crazy and I never really ate lunch and had a working snack at 3:00. I literally squirted Performance Nut Butter in my mouth while in a meeting. – Ugh. Like I blogged about in My Whole30 Experience (Day 5)! The Whole30 is a practice, right?
At 4:00 I had a very simple lunch. A few pieces of Applegate Farms lunch meat, cucumber, and carrots.
Around 6:30 I was starving, but dinner wasn’t ready yet so I had a handful of Whole30 compliant beef jerky.
Around 8:15 I finally sat down for dinner. My Husband, Tony, made the Cashew- Crusted Chicken from the Whole30 Fast & Easy cookbook and it was delicious! Best part, my 10-year-old Andrew liked it- Score!
I topped the meal off with apples and almond butter – yum!
At 9:00 PM I was still awake and had enough energy to read to Drew. That is after I made “the checkmark”.
