Saturday, March 26, 2016. Whole30 plus 53 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
7:00 AM. Awake. Nice to sleep in. 2 cups of black coffee.
9:30 AM. Breakfast. I used a mandolin to thinly slice a medium potato and cooked it in some olive oil and ghee, I also made 2 – 3 oz. (appx. 85g) ground beef patties (90/10), and 3 eggs over easy. I’m not waiting for that whole gluten/sugar/carb over indulgence from yesterday effect to kick in.
2:20 PM. Lunch. I took the veggie mix of summer squash, butternut squash, zucchini, red and green bell peppers, and mushrooms, threw in 2 Aidells Chicken & Apple sausages and scrambled in half of a cup of egg whites.
Whole30 Observation: I talked about this yesterday, and it’s 100% true today: The time between “I think I’m hungry” to “I’m STARVING!” is about 1 nanosecond, due to the gluten/sugar/carbs consumed yesterday. Now breakfast this morning was no problem from the time I woke up until I ate breakfast. But the stretch between breakfast and lunch is always a killer when I’ve eaten ‘not so good food’ the day/night before. But hey, I knew what to expect, right?
So of course, dumb me decides to have more donuts this afternoon. I knew I/we were going to blow it this weekend with Easter and everything, so what the heck, right? So here’s another Whole30 Observation: Heartburn. I have had heartburn ONCE in the past 83 (or even more) days. Make that twice. My little deep fried balls of dough covered with sugar and chocolate are making the heartburn/indigestion kick pretty hard the past few hours. Rolaids to the rescue! Ah, the good old days…
8:30 PM. Dinner (I guess). A couple of chicken thighs and some roasted potatoes.
Fully Compliant. Like that matters at this point of the day. Oh well. We’ll get through Sunday and back on track Monday, right?
10:30 PM. Targeted bed time.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day. Mostly.
Relive my adventure from Day 1.
