You know how we do ’round these parts when the week strikes hump.
It’s no secret if you read this post’s title that I started the Whole 30. It was pretty much on a whim over the weekend, after enduring another week of unexplained and unanswered stomach issues.
I had success with lowering my carb intake in the past, but it took a toll on my energy levels and frozen bananas makes smoothies taste 110% better than cauliflower.
I’ve also just feeling blah with food, and want to get my constant snacking and cupboard rummaging under control.
Plus, I’m always like 3 years behind the latest trends, so it was about time. Day 3, and going strong..famous last words.
I knew I’d be traveling to Philly and visiting a school for the greater part of the day, so a 5:30 wake up call and a hearty breakfast were what I had to look forward to.
I made an frittata similar to this one, but added in some kale from the farmer’s market, plus some roasted veggies, avocado, and hemp seeds, cuz I’m all about dem fats.
I didn’t get home until about 2:30, and was STARVING. Lucky for me, the boyf made a hugh jass batch of my sausage soup, and the fact that I prefer my soups cold (weird) since this was eaten straight outta the fridge topped with some nutritional yeast.
Can y’all say Jersey effen peaches?! Cuz I sure as hell did, face planting into this one. Super juicy and no cling pit. Life is beautiful sometimes.
My body was calling for some intensity, so naturally I hit up BBG. I lasted 1.5 rounds in this hazy humid weather. I was drenched. It was awesome. Mission accomplished.
Don’t you hate when you’re trying to wait to have a meal, so you just keep having little snacks along the way, and then the meal finally comes and you’re full after a few bites? It happened.
I snacked on some cashews and carrots sticks with and almond butter, and decided I should just eat the damn meal instead of these half assed snacks. This is all I got to.
The depressing end of a romaine head topped with yesterday’s tuna salad I didn’t have at lunch, and a pickle. It worked.
Then came half a banana topped with almond butter and sunflower seeds to cure this relentless sweet tooth post-meal, and a cup of mint green tea. And The Office. ALWAYS The Office.
Make it a great day!
