12 hours in and I’m still going strong! Don’t mean to brag but yeah, it’s true. That’s a lie. By 10am, I was asking myself why I am doing this. The hubs’ birthday is tomorrow and I had bought some baked goods from a girl at work. So all day long, I sat next to a pan of sugary delights. Didn’t cry once. Thank you. Thank you very much.
I had left in a rush this morning and…yep, forgot my lunch. S, of course, was completely prepared with something right out of a Greek kitchen. It looked delicious. Lucky for me, my work has a cafeteria so I was able to run down and grab some roasted potatoes and roasted broccoli. It sustained me for a few hours until my stomach started getting jiggy with it and I had to scarf down my little cup o’fruit I bought and then cracked open some pistachios.
Surviving work time hours on a diet really isn’t my biggest hurdle. It’s when I get home. My little sanctuary awaited me. I threw some steak tips in a skillet and sautéed some zucchini, carrots and broccoli and was a happy camper. I’m also not feeling water. I’ve drank a lot of water today but for my dinner I wanted something a little exciting so I broke out a can of LaCroix cranberry carbonated water (Whole 30 approved). Now, I’ve not had sparkling water in a very long time and I’ll tell you why. It tastes horrid. It literally tastes like someone took a cup of salt water, put a cranberry in that cup and the cranberry farted and bam…bubbles and yuck. But I drank it because I paid for it so I’m drinking it. Gulp gulp cranberry fart water.
My exercise routine was cut out today because, well, I don’t want to do it. It’s all my neighbors’ fault. My neighbors on both sides of me decided to mow and well, I had to mow because if I don’t, people driving down the street are going to see a landscaped mohawk in our neighborhood all because I couldn’t get my ass out there to mow because I’m doing Whole 30 and am weak. So I mowed, cooked dinner, chopped a crap ton of veggies, threw chicken in a crockpot, did dishes and drank sparkling cranberry fart water. All in all, I’m doing great!
