Day 8. January 11, 2016. “For The Love of Gosling, My Pants Are TIGHTER” pt.1
4:15 AM. Woke from the alarm. Got a slight headache. Ended up drinking 2 cups of black coffee and a cup of hot Stash Chai Spice Black Tea. It’s like a cup of warm Christmas!
5:45 AM. 4 mini frittatas, 1/2 an avocado and a pile of beef hash. The new beef hash for this week is really good! Potatoes, sweet potatoes, red and green peppers, onions, and ground beef. Made a big cup of Positively Tea Organic Green Jasmine to take with me to work.
My Pants Are Tighter!: After my shower, I noticed that my pants are NOT tighter and I DO have headache. Now I’m wondering if I have the Whole30 timeline thing screwed up because nothing is happening on the days things are supposed to happen! Headache observation update: Weather is sunny and clear with a forecasted high of 52 degrees F. I’m thinking it’s sinus activity…
11:00 AM. Digging into lunch. Green salad with chicken and avocado, oil and vinegar dressing. Had a headache earlier, but it’s gone now. Must have faded away while I wasn’t thinking about it. Tore through my carrots and celery, too. Happy I stayed full from breakfast to lunch.
4:00 PM. Apples for the drive home. Gotta love some apples!
6:00 PM. Sat down and chowed down on a steaming hot bowl of Albondigas! This Mexican meatball soup is so freakin’ tasty! Only 2 small things to make this Whole30 compliant: 1. Don’t use any breadcrumbs to bind the meatballs, and 2. Don’t throw a scoop of white rice into your bowl before filling it with the deliciousness. Your personal recipes may vary, but this is souper (see what I did there?) easy to make. This all starts with the broth from yesterday:
9:00 PM. Bed. Got another early start tomorrow.
