Day 17. January 20, 2016. “Tiger Blood” post 2.
4:15 AM. Alarm clock did it’s thing. 2 cups of black coffee. Jane reminded me that I have fasting blood and urine this morning. D’oh! Made myself a giant travel mug full of green tea before I left the house.
6:50 AM. Checked in at lab. Found out it wasn’t a fasting test after all. Double D’oh!
7:45 AM. FINALLY get called, go in for the blood draw and ask if I may please have my specimen cup so I may *ahem* “provide a specimen”. Was told this was a blood draw only lab visit. And again: D’oh! This just isn’t my morning!!! Hurry up and get the blood already, I gotta pee! Anyway, comfort requirements met. Finally. I also did not weigh myself.
8:30 AM. Back at the office. Nuked my breakfast of mini frittatas, ground beef hash and avocado. Ate it like a savage. Check out my breakfast bento:
Pretty cool, right?
11:30AM. Lunch. Had this awesome green salad with avocado and roast beef put together by Jane. I had the option of going with the leftover chicken, but Jane will cut a fool who tries to take the last leftover chicken breast…
4:40 PM. Back home. Had my apples, of course, on the drive home. Pulled a double shot of espresso. I don’t “need” the caffeine, I just like coffee! One thing I haven’t mentioned lately is the whole “Hitting The Wall” thing that usually happens every day at 2:00 PM. I haven’t been tired or burned-out at work or on the weekends pretty much since what? day 5 or so of the Whole30. So hey, maybe I’m getting some of that “Tiger Blood” going… Here’s a single shot of my double shot:
6:00 PM. Dinner. Broiled Mahi-mahi with fresh mango salsa served with a side of cauliflower rice. Chef Jane is on Fire-fire!!! We found this Whole30 compliant Mahi-mahi at Costco. They also had compliant Halibut, but at $47 for 2 lbs (YIKES!) we had to pass on that one! But the Mahi-mahi was more than reasonably priced.
9:00 PM. Bed. Up early tomorrow. Again.
