I awake at 6:30 feeling well-rested and hopeful that the Whole30 hangover is a thing of the past.
As I walk into the bathroom it seems like the scale became an octopus overnight and its legs are trying to draw me in. I really want to weigh myself – just for a second. It is funny to think that just a few weeks ago, I was fighting to resist a cocktail in How Can I Resist You? and now I’m trying to resist a scale. Life is crazy!
Soup is what’s for breakfast?
When I got downstairs, Tony asked if I would like him to warm up my soup. I was completely thrown off kilter because I drink a Yetti cup of water every morning and a cup of bone broth before I think about food. I said, “ok” and went about the rest of my morning routine. Minutes later, I realized he made the wrong soup. I was ready to blow a gasket. I have become really serious about my food since I started the Whole30.
Being caught hungry in the grocery store is kind of ironic
After I dropped Drew off at school, I had to run to the grocery store to get snacks for Taylor’s tennis team. Within minutes of walking into the store, I realized I was hungry. How could I be caught without my snacks again? After everything I did to prepare in Gotta Fill The Healthy Whole30 Compliant Snack Bag – Fast! – really? I grabbed a bag of cashews off the grocery store shelf and started eating them in the middle of the store. I spent an hour in the store looking for the team’s approved snacks and a few Whole30 foods. And I have to confess, I’m the world’s worst grocery shopper. I left mentally exhausted, completely frazzled and in a bad mood. I decided it is time to start looking into some Whole30 online grocery shopping options and added it to my to-do list.
Once I got home, I warmed myself a bowl of the “right soup” and opened the Whole30 Day By Day.
Whole30ing in the middle of a crazzzy day
My day is just crazy and I never really ate lunch and had a working snack at 3:00. I literally squirted Performance Nut Butter in my mouth while in a meeting. – Ugh. Like I blogged about in My Whole30 Experience (Day 5)! The Whole30 is a practice, right?
Around 6:30 I was starving, but dinner wasn’t ready yet so I had a handful of Whole30 compliant beef jerky.
Around 8:15 I finally sat down for dinner. My husband, Tony, made the Cashew- Crusted Chicken from the Whole30 Fast & Easy cookbook and it was delicious! The best part, my 10-year-old Andrew liked it- Score!
I topped the meal off with apples and almond butter – yum!
Whole30 Day 6 Reflections
At 9:00 PM I was still awake and had enough energy to read to Drew. That is after I made “the checkmark”.
