Reluctant Whole 30 Diary - Day 9

I am so, so, so tired right now because I've been going non-stop since very early this morning. Then this evening when I should have had some down time, I spent 3 hours prepping and cooking stuff from a huge Costco run this afternoon where I found... wait for it... COMPLIANT BACON!

I was literally this woman at the Fairfax Costco at 1:45pm today and I wasn't even embarrassed. Dig it, you guys:

So this is going to be a short post because tired now. But a great day in terms of energy and eating!

Here's what I ate:
This is my actual dinner.

Coffee: 3 cups with coconut cream
Breakfast: scrambled eggs on leftover potato/sweet potato hash w salsa
Lunch: leftover egg roll in a bowl
Snack: Macadamias (bad idea. very bad. too delicious. triggered food cravings. I wasn't even hungry. UGH. I should have just skipped it.) 
Dinner: Chicken zuchini poppers (oven baked), crispy potatoes and steamed asparagus with roasted red pepper Paleo mayo. Because the mayo is homemade, it almost tastes like hollandaise sauce which is always a big HELL YES in my book.

Then I watched tv with my kids. But once I sat down, bad things happened and I got all warm and cozy and snuggled them and now I want to go to bed.

Today's gif! Because I'm happy with how today went, but I am just so sleepy.

  1. (warning...I got really excited and this is a way long comment) I have been reading your blog faithfully for the past three years - began when my first son was born (3 years ago yesterday..woot!) and I was so sleep deprived, your blog was a place of comfort for me in the midst of exhaustion....like I knew exhaustion...HA - fast forward 20 months and I gave birth to twins - little boys that wanted to nurse at all hours and had no concept of sleep...so how did I deal with three babies under 2 - I ATE...I mean devoured copious amounts of Dove chocolate (like a big bag a day!) and individually wrapped danishes - to be exact - after 4 months of this horrific behavior, I took a long hard look at my reflection in a window - no inspecting anything in mirrors - and knew I had to take control of myself again - I am not a fat girl! And so I searched the internet like a crazy woman....and discovered Paleo...though I never did the Whole 30 - I embraced Paleo with a fierceness that made me a raving B for the first week or so....giving up sugar cold turkey was horrendous for me, but I'm going to tell you - this ish works!!! I never gave up dairy or peanut butter - random, I know but as a nurse mom to twins I felt like I really needed my milk, cheese and pb...but I will tell you, seriously, stick with it - the lbs melted away - I lost over 40lbs in about 5 months and at my lowest weighed a number I last saw in high school (I almost crapped my pants when I saw it) and now 10 months later, I'm still keeping it up and the weight has stayed off! I have my cheat desserts if we go out to dinner, but I'm telling you, this Paleo 'lifestyle' is for real! YOU CAN DO IT - I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!! And I'm so excited to read about your progress! :) phew! ps...I did put alcohol back into my diet after about a month, because let's be real - many nights there is only one way to get through the witching hours!

  2. So you said if you can do it anyone can do it and I believe you except that I have two things that seem to make this not work for me...and I want it to work because I want to be healthy...I loathe cooking. I'm terrible at it and can burn my kitchen down boiling water. My husband cooks and I have an amazing husband who is a SAHD. So...that's an issue. AND my other thing...I don't eat meat except for seafood. In your previous blog post you said something about that wouldn't work. I feel like I could still make that work but I'm still stuck on my first issue. Thoughts?
