Whole30 Day 16

Happy Monday!  It's Spring Break!

Breakfast-  Fruit and coffee

Lunch- Went down to Pass A Grille with friends!  We packed ham slices, Clementines, melons, into our beach bags.  When we left the beach we stopped at Chic Fila... I got a market grilled chicken salad.  Avoided the blue cheese on it the best I could.  Yummy!

Dinner- I made this Cumin Pork Roast and it was awesome!   The rest of the fam had it over rice.  I had it alone and it was still AWESOME!   This would also be good with some gauc on top.

I went to bed really early.  Sugars have still been great.  I think I've finally leveled out my insulin pump ratios.   However, I'm wondering if I add exercise what will happen.   I'd like to start taking a brisk walk every day to amp it up to the next level.  Spring Break would be a good time to start since I have some extra free time.   This may happen tomorrow.  :)

Whole30 Day 15

Half way there.

Breakfast-  Busy church morning!  Brought coffee, strawberries, a Clementine, and a hard boiled egg to church

Lunch- TUNA WRAPS!  I was hangry and it was ready.

2nd Lunch- Chicken Sausage

Dinner-  Mojito Lime Chicken Salad

Went grocery shopping and spent an ungodly amount of money.  But I have so many fun things to make.

Another note:  I am eating massive amounts of food.  I eat little things constantly and I'm never hungry.  Because I'm not eating sugar, grains, or dairy... I can make up for it in fruits, veggies and protein.  It's kind of awesome coming up with new things.

Whole30 Day 14

If you guys could only see me right now...  I'm completely alone in my QUIET house on my reclining couch with a frosty La Croix infused with limes and mangos and my Southern at Heart Food Network show on the Dvr. Do you know Demaris Phillips?   I can't get enough of her shows and I pretend like we're friends in real life while I'm watching.  She teaches while she cooks her southern, Kentucky bourbon goodies.   Ironically, she is making some ridiculous looking brownies that are the fartherst thing from Whole30 compliant I've ever seen.

So Let's talk about Day 14.

Breakfast-  Fresh eggs with veggies and fruit and coffee.  HELLO SPRING BREAK and Jack Johnson songs and wakin up slooooooow!  Chocolate chip pancakes for my kiddies because I'm an awesome mom.

Lunch-  Tuna salad Romaine wraps.   Tuna is quickly becoming a staple in this way of eating.  It's good.  It's fresh and yummy with crispy veggies added... and lemons and limes squeezed all over it with copious amounts of sea salt and black pepper make it amazing.   Also had a hard boiled egg.  It was extra special because Zoe dyed it Miami colors and it said, "I love the Lord a lote" on it.   I love Him a lote too, Zoe.   You are so precious.

Dinner-  Mojito Lime Baked Chicken Tenders, Salad, Eggs, Mangos,

Snack:  Sweet potato chips.  Nom Nom Nom.   Go make some.  The thinner the better.

I've stopped testing so often because I know that it's always good.  Is that CRAZY?  But it's true.  It's never high.  Diabetics everywhere... quit eating grains (corn, wheat, rice, anything)  just cut it out of your diet and you'll be golden forever.  Easier said than done... but as a person who has had an unemployed pancreas for 26+ years now... I know what I'm talking about.  It's hard and you have to do hard things and man up... sometimes I want to hit people with bread in their hands.... but I've determined it's worth it to feel this good.

I miss cheese.  A lot.   Moving on...

I got on the scale, which as spoken about in earlier posts is breaking a rule, (Rebels Unite!!!) and I was 119.  That's 9 lbs. of shred from 14 days ago which is ridiculous.  I'm definitely not doing this to lose weight, but it's a hella bonus, team.

I am so excited to get blood work done next month at my PCP appointment.  I'm going to have her draw an A1c, just to see how much it's dropped already.  I'm betting a full point.   Dr. Denker (the coolest endocrine doc in the world) are you reading this???  Throw out a virtual high five!  Shalom, brother!

All for now... tomorrow is half way which is an exponetially motivating fact..... (but it's really today, and I'm writing of yesterday, so I'm half way.  Are you confused?  It's like the Time Traveler's Wife.  Is it then or now?  I'm so confused.  Is this real life?  Windy, are you drinking?  No... because alcohol is not Whole30 compliant.    Cheers for now!

Whole30 Day 12

Breakfast- Coffee, Water, Half Banana   Went to Boosterthon run... left Boosterthon run with a really upset stomach towards the end.

Lunch- I grazed today.  It was very busy and long and I didn't want to eat too much and then run out of food.  I had an apple with almond butter, then a hard boiled egg, then an avacado, and a Clementines and more apple slices at the end of the day.   It worked.  Sipped on citrus infused water all day.  

Dinner-   Chicken sausage, small steak, and broiled red potatoes with coconut oil and salt and pepper.  With plenty for lunch tomorrow! And a good salad!

La Croix and tons of water today.   I'm so tired.  My son and I both fell asleep at about 5pm when we got home from school.    Feel like my body is fighting trying not to get sick.   One more work day til Spring Break!
Today I'm so thankful for encouraging words from my husband and friends.   I appreciate the support!!!  

Blood sugar was 80 when I woke up.  Solid!   Stayed good all day.

Whole30 Day 11

Breakfast-  Coffee and fruit bowl

Lunch-  LeeRoy Selmons with my hubby.  Blackened salmon and steamed brocolli, water, La Croix

Dinner-  Leftover chicken and veggies stirfry and some walnuts later on.

Snacks- Fruit smoothie (Banana, Spinach, Coconut milk, ice, strawberries, manogos) before bed.  Woke up at 80 which was nice.

Dealing with anxiety again.  Set doctors appt.  Hopefully she'll help me sort this all out.  Feel really good.physically... but mentally and emotionally I'm struggling and working through the whys of that.

This way of eating is hard.  But it is also better than what I was doing.  My family is semi eating along with me and I know they've had more GOOD foods put in their bodies than in the past.  I'm happy for that.    

Super duper excited for Spring Break and Easter.  I love Easter.

Whole30 Day 10

It's day 10 and I'm officially bored.  I need something fun to eat.  Headed to Pinterest right after this.

  I took my daughter to get a Blizzard after school because she was so cute and I knew her brother was enjoying ice cream too with the friend he went home to play with.   When the lady opened the drive through window and the smell of ice cream toppings came in the car I wanted to eat a large Blizzard and possibly also 17 Snickers bars.  But instead... I handed Zoe her magnificent Butterfinger Blizzard and drove away.  Then she asked me if I wanted a bite and I said, "You are so sweet.  But Mommy wants to really stick to her commitment and eat only the things that are good for me."  And she said... "Cool, Mom.  You can have an avacado or something when we get home."   I could have smacked the cute right off her face.    HAHA!   I love her.  

Today I miss Diet Coke.  That chemical filled cancer causing sweet necter of Satan.  I miss it.

Breakfast- Fresh berries and egg and veggie bake, coffee, water  

Lunch-  Spaghetti Squash Primavera.   Even better the next day.  I'm obsessed with curry seasoning.  
Dinner:  Chicken and veggie sautee and salad

Snacks:  La Croix, green apple slices, frozen mango, strawberries
