As I type this, it’s technically day 8 of our first Whole 30. I had to look at the calendar like four times to figure it out, I wonder if brain fog is a normal symptom at this point. I should head on over to the timeline and check it out, but I’m already working on borrowed time right now.
I head to the dentist in a bit for my denture fitting for my baby tooth issue. I’m super stoked to finally have that gap fixed, but not super stoked for the accompanying bill.
We’re still trucking around on this whole 30 journey, and it seems to be getting easier in most ways.
Let’s do a quick round-up of the last few days that I’ve been too busy enjoying to sit down and blog.
Saturday Whole 30 Day 5
My husband was off, so we got to have a big breakfast all together. I’ve been making him sausage egg cups to take to work, so it was the first day he got to join in on my new found love of fried eggs. We’d been a strictly scrambled family until about a week ago.
I spent the morning meal planning and list making for the week. This whiteboard is one of my secrets to success, it’s next to a calendar so I can plan what we’ll eat based on the day’s schedule. I can’t plan too in depth with two kids, because I really never know what the day will bring.
We got dressed and headed out to The Union Transportation Trail. It was an old railway that the town converted to open trails for biking and walking and horse riding.
Kids love sticks-Fact!
Bree and I then headed out to do our grocery shopping. Do you shop at Aldi? If you haven’t been there in a while, check them out. They have organic, pasture raised eggs, grass-fed beef, and a ton of organic fruits and vegetables at a fraction of the price. We still needed to head to Shop Rite to get some things, like seaweed and larabars and snacks for the kids, but Aldi usually has a bulk of what we need.
Sunday Whole 30 Day 6
Talk about energy! After breakfast I went through all the kids old clothes, and donated three bags of stuff. I cleaned and organized the pantry, the hallway, the toy room. I packed up all the Christmas stuff. I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned.
I basically forgot about eating all day, and didn’t have anything made for dinner so we had deli meat roll ups in romaine lettuce. I think I may have had a few hard-boiled eggs and cucumber for lunch, maybe. I passed out on the couch at like seven-thirty.
Monday Whole 30 Day 7
Yesterday was a crazy day. The kids were cranky, so cranky. I’m guessing it’s cabin fever, because they were bananas. They’re normally so good, that I can’t really complain. And they are just crazy cute!
I was feeling a bit moody, but I don’t know if it was all the whines and cries or if it was more food related. I was also dying for something sweet, and I’m glad I picked up a larabar.
I had to make a bunch of stuff for the week that we had run out of, like mayo, bbq sauce, salad dressing and the sauce for our dinner last night. We had fish tacos, and my husband loved them. It’s always awesome when something gets his full stamp of approval!
