Day 22 –
So, to be honest, I’m kind of tired of keeping track of food, but I know it’s essential for me to learn what is and is not good for me. Still, after Whole30 ends, the only foods I will keep track of will be what I re-introduce and meals that I really like…so that I don’t forget I really like them. (I have a tendency to get into meal ruts. This has been an always thing, so it’s not related to Whole30.)
Everything is pretty even and smooth. There isn’t much new to report other than just that — great energy, getting up at 5 without much of an issue, pressing on, brain is working, all good things!
Day 23 –
Today, a few food adventures.
One: Bone soup. The very name makes me go “meh.” But I’m open to trying it. It has to cook for a long time, so it’ll be tomorrow before I try it.
Two: Chicken sausage that I found at the health store and decided to try. No sugars, no gluten, no all the other bad stuff we are supposed to avoid. Organic and all that jazz. I stared at the price for a while before I finally picked it up. It just stinks that eating healthy costs so much. But I reasoned I would make 4 meals from it (for just me, of course), so I did it. Pretty tasty! I’d like to find it for a better price, but for now, it was a nice change.
Three: Spaghetti for dinner! I looooooooove pasta. I love spaghetti. But nope, this wasn’t a cheat. I finally found spaghetti squash, and after some fun Internet searching to figure out how in the world to cut it open without chopping off my own fingers (they call me Grace — also, I don’t have a lot of strength in my arms and hands yet), I got that baby cooking, and then whipped up my own sauce. I didn’t go so far as to buy fresh tomatoes to make my own sauce, but I did make it from tomato sauce, ground turkey, sweet peppers, and different seasonings. It was soooooo good! Like a very fine angel hair pasta. Oh man, I can do this no pasta thing for sure!
All in all, a good day. I ended up walking/running twice for a total of 5.56 miles, did a lot of domestic chores, and was able to focus on my work in general. Day 23 and I’m going strong!
*I did have a dull headache for a lot of the day, but I attribute this to new contacts, not a relapse of the old.
