Whole 30 — Day 08 and 09

I was asleep by ten o’clock last night, so blogging didn’t happen. Tonight, I won’t be far behind that mark.

This Whole 30 is really weird. I’m still on the plan, even with not making all my own meals. But, it’s so weird. I have absolutely no appetite.

None. Nada. Nope.

I wasn’t really hungry, but I had a salad for lunch. No more hungry. I decided on the way home from dropping my daughter at a sleepover that I would stop at the market and buy some salmon. I’m usually always hungry for salmon. When I arrived home, though, I unloaded the groceries and didn’t feel like preparing the salmon. Ugh! Frustrating.

Maybe tomorrow.

For tonight, I just ate some veggies and fruit–mostly these phenomenal grapes I bought at the market. Organic and they literally pop when you bit into them–yummy.

It isn’t that I’m not craving food, I am. I can literally smell sugar. I stared down a baguette at lunch that was considered a “side” to my uneventful salad. I wanted to eat it and everyone else’s. Right on schedule, I’m wanting to eat my way through a pile of spaghetti. In m past attempts at the Whole 30, I dump out in the late teens usually by eating a huge plate of spaghetti or something from PF Chang’s. Not a pretty moment to be proud of, but it is what it is.

Otherwise, I feel fine. I’m sleeping. My skin looks better. My clothes feel looser. My daughters have been complimenting me on how much “better” I seem. I know the amount of water I’m drinking [it really is good] has helped with lots of things. I suppose I just need to be patient with myself. Realize that somewhere there is a mad, pouting little brat with crossed arms angry that I’m not eating Baskin-Robbins’ flavor of the month or giving in to the cries for an Egg McMuffin every morning. She needs to get over herself because we’re doing this, like it or lump it.

rainbowWe’ll just keep plugging along, looking for recipes that hold my interest and make me want to fire up the oven.

Always looking for something new and exciting each day. Yesterday, it was this pretty rainbow. We were treated to it after being drenched in a downpour on our way to the mall.

Today, it was a little harder to find something new and exciting. It was kind of a bummer day at work. But my youngest went to  a slumber party all jazzed and excited–I’ll just share her exciting day!

Tomorrow, it will be interesting to see if I can find something to click the old, “Hey! We love to eat!” button. Maybe a nice egg? Gotta start somewhere, right?!
