Wednesday, April 20, 2016. Whole30 plus 78 days of Clean Eating. Mostly.
4:15 AM. Awake. Good thing. I forgot to set my alarm. It’s a blessing. It’s a curse. 2 cups of black coffee.
5:45 AM. Breakfast. Ground beef hash with sweet potatoes; veggie mix (summer squash, butternut squash, zucchini, red and green bell peppers, and mushrooms) scrambled with a cup of egg whites. And a half teaspoon of bee pollen.
I made a big mug of green tea for the morning drive. And accidentally left my mug in my office when I left work this afternoon.2:00 PM. Lunch. That’s right. 2:00 PM. Carrots, celery and a salad with grilled chicken and half an avocado. That will teach me to leave my lunch in the office instead of bringing it with me. Who am I kidding? This ain’t the first time I’ve forgotten my lunch, and I know it won’t be the last.
Whole30 Observation: (And clean eating in general) – Yes, I was hungry because I missed my regularly scheduled feeding, but since I’m really restricting certain carbs and sugar and other crap in my diet, I can actually function without losing my ever-loving mind without eating something for a little while. It’s funny – the old me in this situation would have hit the first drive-thru available for some bag nasty’s and sugar water because it was convenient. Not any more. I hope.
4:30 PM. Snack time. A sliced Red Delicious apple, homemade beef jerky and a double shot of espresso with some steamed almond milk. Good stuff.
So that would be my SWPO cappuccino today.
7:00 PM. Dinner. Flank steak, roasted asparagus and baked gold potatoes with organic grass-fed butter and sour cream. Another hit!
OK, that’s enough for today.
9:30 PM. Targeted bed time.
And so goes Step Four: Life After Your Whole30. If I remember correctly, today was a good day. Side note: I really miss Calvin and Hobbes.
Relive my journey from Day 1.
