Today is shaping up to be much better than yesterday. In fact, my day 2 blog was created just moments ago because that is how lethargic I felt yesterday.
I woke up this morning with a bit more energy--not enough to run a marathon--well, most of you know this is not on my bucket list anyway ;) In fact, my coffee this morning was a bit less crappy than the past two days. My taste buds must be slowly adjusting. Don't fret my pet: I am still only drinking one cup because it is not THAT good--yet.
Whole30 recommends that we stop thinking in terms of breakfast, lunch, and dinner and instead revert to meal 1, 2, and 3 because then we can focus on what we want to eat and not having eggs just for breakfast or salads just for lunch. However, that is exactly what I did today. I will journey off the path of selectiveness and propriety once I get past the first two weeks.
So, my meal 1 consisted of a Blueberry Tortilla. Don't let the name fool you! There is no tortilla in the recipe, just egg, spices, and blueberries. It was delicious!! My husband really liked it. It does take a bit to make it, so don't plan this one for busy work mornings. In addition, I had another spinach and fruit smoothie along with my getting-better-each-day coffee.
After breakfast, my husband and I went for a 4-mile walk along the Tow Path from Freemansburg to Steel Stacks. This was not the original plan, but my husband doesn't always have a plan. Even though I'm feeling better today, it was a bit much for me. However, I'm glad to have gotten in the exercise early on in the day, as I'm not sure how I will feel later.
My meal 2 consisted of a salad (lettuce, spinach, red pepper, olives, pea pods, cucumber, baby carrots tossed with homemade Italian dressing), half of a peach, and iced tea. All of it good, but when I was done, I just felt like I wanted...something...a chip, a piece of candy, something. Instead, I pulled out my Chromebook to create my blogs, and the craving passed quickly.
Since today is Father's Day, I'm taking my dad out for dinner to Texas Roadhouse. I figured it was a safe bet that I could get a large slab of meat there to fulfill my Whole30 criteria. I am planning to order a (naked) sweet potato and a vegetable--maybe even a salad if I feel the need. All of that will comply with my new clean eating regimen, as long as I specify no cheese on the salad and use oil/vinegar for the dressing.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's saga of "What will Karla eat today?".
