So, I’ve been sort of behind, and I really wanted to try and avoid that. I am at the end of Day Five and I am thrilled that I have made it 1/6 of the way through! As I sit on my couch after dinner, I bask in the splitting headache that the sugar detox continues to give me every night. I’m a little disappointed in myself because I didn’t make it to the gym today and I wanted to get there. I will probably do a few abdominal exercises and some stretching before I shower tonight.
It was an absolutely beautiful day and I feel so blessed that I was able to be out and about. Whenever I’m running errands or hanging with friends I make sure to throw a Lara Bar in my purse just in case I am starving and can’t find somewhere Whole30 compliant to eat. I haven’t really had to utilize my emergency bar yet, but I’m sure that one day I will be so happy I was prepared.
Sorry, my humor isn’t on point today. I’m still in Whole30 hangover mode. It hits 8PM and I’m down for the count.
Food for the day:
Breakfast was no-sugar added bacon (I found it at Whole Foods), two eggs and sliced cantaloupe. The melon was so perfectly ripe, I can’t wait to have some for dessert.
Lunch was two pieces of broccolini that my roommate cooked (Thanks, Kateri!) and one of my yummy pineapple, spinach, banana smoothies.
I totally intended for dinner to be super duper easy…and then it got out of control. I had a bunch of veggies that I wanted to use before heading to Cape Cod tomorrow so I planned on making a big chopped salad with chicken. Thennnnn…I was like, what if I made a Cobb salad. So it ended up being a huge production. Here’s a picture:
For my trip to Cape Cod, I am bringing some snacks with me in case there isn’t food that I can eat. Plantain chips, guacamole, a Lara Bar and some of my leftover squash and sauce. Just in case!! Better safe than sorry.
I’m going to nurse my poor little headache and relax. Night, night friends!
