I’m going to start sounding like a broken record here pretty soon, but today was really rather uneventful. I’m on day 3 of my Whole30, and I still feel pretty good. I had a bit of a headache earlier this morning, but I think that was probably caused by other things. I did cut back on my fruit intake today, so maybe I’ll start feeling the withdrawals tomorrow. I hope not, but who knows? If I could continue going along with minimal negative side effects, that would be fantastic!
One thing I did start to notice today was the cravings are starting to kick in. I was craving everything from a chocolate bar to potato chips to cheese curds, you name it! If it was junk, I was probably craving it today. I made the mistake of walking down the candy aisle at the drugstore after work, but I put my blinders on and didn’t even pay attention. I could smell the chocolate though… It was rough!
I definitely planned ahead a lot better today than the first 2 days. I had leftovers for breakfast and lunch and crock pot chili for dinner. I didn’t take any pictures of breakfast or lunch since they are just repeats.
Breakfast: Leftover Ham, Apple & Sweet Potato Scramble and 8 oz Gingerade kombucha
Lunch: Leftover Mustard Chicken Thighs and Spaghetti Squash with Sauteed Asparagus and Garlic
Dinner: Chocolate Chili from The Clothes Make the Girl. I was definitely in the mood for some nice, hearty chili after the last couple cold, dreary days, and this recipe definitely hit the spot. I made the crock pot version so it would be ready to go when I got home.
I was also going to do a quick tutorial for how to easily dice an onion with minimal tears, but I didn’t think of it until after the onions were already in the pot. I learned the trick a couple years ago, and it has changed my life. 😉 So next time I make a recipe with onions, I’ll be sure to include it. If you don’t already know it, it will be revolutionary.
On Saturday I’ll be doing a 5k mud run to benefit a local domestic abuse shelter. It’s called the Warrior Princess Mud Run, and I want to dress up in some sort of costume. I’m thinking of dressing as a princess, but I’d like to be one that’s not some wussy woman who needs to be saved by her prince (I’m looking at you, Snow White…). I’m kind of stumped on ideas though. Maybe I’ll just go generic and wear a skirt and a tiara and call it a day. If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them!
