Sunday, April 17, 2016. Whole30 plus 75 days of Clean Eating. Mostly. Today? Well…
Let’s see what today brings…
7:30 AM. Awake. When I say it’s nice to sleep in, you have to put it all into perspective. During the work week, my alarm is set for 4:15, and I’m prepped and fed and out the door by 6:10 at the absolute latest. So, sleeping until 7:30 AM is really sleeping in for me. 3 cups of black coffee.
9:00 AM. Breakfast. And again, I diced up some potatoes and cooked them in the T-Fal ActiFry cooking thing. It takes about half an hour for the spuds to cook. When the potatoes had about 5 minutes left to cook, I threw in 2 sliced Aidells Chicken and Apple sausages and let everything finish up. I also had 3 eggs over easy, sort of. My egg game has really been far off this weekend.
Lot’s of pepper, too.
So after breakfast and tons of yardwork (the winds FINALLY died down), today kind of took an interesting turn, to say the least. You see, there was this doughnut. And me and said doughnut kind of, well, you know…enough said. You can fill in the blanks from here. I also took some benadryl today (itchy eyes, runny nose, I sound like a commercial) which led to a nap this afternoon. I can’t even remember the last time I actually took a nap. I think I may want to add naps to my repertoire occasionally. It was awesome!
6:00 PM. Dinner. Chicken breast with mushroom and asparagus coconut milk sauce, served over a bed of rice.
Whole30 Observation: I’ll be watching my reaction to the wheat flour and sugar from the doughnut, as well as how the rice is going to treat me tomorrow. I already know what’s going to happen. After I eat a compliant breakfast high in protein and vegetables, I’m going to be ravenous 3 hours later. I’ll keep you posted.
As the comedians say – “That’s my time”…
10:00 PM. Targeted bed time. Later than I want, but I had a nap today.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. Today was a good day.
