I woke up at 6:30am. I decided to make some sweet potatoes so when Marley woke up they would be ready. They made the house smell delicious. Once Marley got up the sweet potatoes were ready. I made him his own plate this morning and he ate them all! We enjoyed our Whole30 breakfast together! I had my frittata, raspberries and sweet potatoes again.
8am – I made myself an organic Tazo vanilla rooibos parfait tea. I was craving coffee this morning, which I hadn’t been for awhile but still want to try to avoid it.
The one thing I will say that I’ve noticed since I’ve been home with my 2 1/2 yr old nephew. Sometimes we snack when we don’t even need to snack. Marley wanted graham crackers so I gave him some in a cup, they smelled so delicious I really wanted a bite, I wasn’t even hungry. I didn’t eat them but it was very tempting to without even thinking twice about it. I think that’s one thing I had forgotten since doing my last Whole30, how many times we eat things that we don’t need just because they are there.
12pm – “what time is it?” – “it’s time for lunch” (Bubble Guppies) … watching too many cartoons (haha)! I heated up some leftover taco meat and made a huge taco salad. It was delicious. The avocado truly does make it! I sat down at the kitchen table and took 30-minutes to eat it. That’s huge for me. Typically at work I eat in front of my computer and just eat without thinking anything about it. It was nice to have the time and leisure to just sit and eat. I need to do that more often.
3pm – I was pretty hungry so I made myself a shake. I think I drank it too fast though. I was feeling really tired, like I could take a nap tired but I struggled through.
8pm – I heated up the pulled pork with apples that I made on Monday. I enjoyed it with roasted fingerling potatoes (they totally hit the spot) and roasted broccoli. Tonight I really wanted a glass of wine (again) so instead I poured myself a seltzer with lemon & lime juice in a moscow mule cup. It did the trick (sort of… haha!)
Looking forward to a good nights sleep!
