Reluctant Whole 30 Diary Day 13

Sigh... It's a 3 gif day, you guys.

Today was "The Annual Saturday of Mandatory Girl Scout Obligations". We had a cookie booth sale and then we had World Thinking Day and then we had to meet up with friends all over town to sell and deliver cookies. But you know what today really was? Today was the day of people offering me things to eat that I can not eat. Some of the things were very easy to say no to. Others - like chocolate mousse and girl scout cookies and some sort of Korean seaweed delicacy - were not so easy. But I handled it really well. I was all like, "no thank you" firmly but with a smile.

Half way through Thinking Day, I started to get fussy about it. Because some people should know better than to offer me delicious treats and I suspect that those people (who are also short and related to me) just didn't want to throw away their half-eaten food and as usual, were treating me like a damn garbage can under the guise of "Mommy - do you want a bite of this?"

Do I want a bite of Anzac biscuit or Johnny cake? For maybe the 100th time today, child - NO.



For dinner the plan was that I would drop off the girls with their dad & their brother at a local hamburger joint so they could celebrate the boy's baseball try-outs. I would walk them in, hug the boy, and then go to Trader Joe's in peace to get some healthy food for the week to come. Let's be honest, I was totally winning in this arrangement as my husband was left alone with three kids in a busy restaurant listening to them beg for dessert before their burgers even came, while I got to go shopping by myself.

But of course it didn't work out that way. I had to hang out in that delicious smelling restaurant for like 15 minutes smelling the smells and watching people eat burgers and fries and drink milkshakes and my stupid husband kept finding reasons why I should stay longer. I finally just kissed everyone and left because my rage fire was burning so hot that I was close to screaming "STOP EATING JUNK FOOD AT ME, ASSHOLES! GAHHHHH!!!!" before randomly flipping tables and mollywhopping old men on my way out of the restaurant.

Do I want a some fries with that? DO I?!

Here's what I ate today:
Coffee: 3 cups with coconut cream
Breakfast: 5 chicken zuchini poppers with red pepper mayo
Lunch: Scrambled eggs with leftover turkey taco meat and salsa on the side
Snack: Apple with cinnamon sprinkled on it and some almond butter
Other snack: Delicious chicken drumstick that E gave me
Dinner: Paleo Enchilada Bake with salsa and guac on the side. I tried a recipe from JustJesseB and it was really good. I've seen chicken enchilada bake recipes that look good and I might try that next time.
