Day 9 Whole 30
Tuesday, August 02, 2016
Never got around to posting yesterday, but I had some turkey roll-ups filled with lettuce, a swai filet and some grilled veggies and potato. Had cantaloupe for dessert and a handful of pistachios and olives.
Today was a busy day. The Dude and I are planning on moving to a larger house, so we spent the morning with the realtor and looked at houses. We did some serious downsizing during the recession in 2007, and I am way over the tiny-house lifestyle (940 sq ft). I'm absolutely giddy about the idea of more closet space. Then we stopped at a local restaurant and had breakfast skillets. I'm glad there is at least one thing I can order at a restaurant and still be relatively compliant with this diet!
Brunch: Breakfast skillet with no cheese (2 eggs, potato, bacon, sausage, onion). Side of cantaloupe. Small tomato juice.
Dinner: grilled chicken breast. brussels sprouts and shiitake mushrooms. Diced sweet potatoes. All on the grill...The Dude loves grilling season!
I will probably end up snacking on cashews or olives. I honestly feel like I'm stuffing myself at each meal, but when I add up the calories...I'm finding that I'm about 500-800 calories under what I should be. I don't feel hungry. I do feel like my stomach feels more unsettled without the grains in the meal, but I'm also not having much in the ways of carb cravings, either. I miss cheese and yogurt. I miss barbecue sauce. As of yet I'm not seeing any difference in the way my clothes fit, my skin, my hair, my energy. I'm still waiting for awesome things to happen. I'm hoping awesome things happen. I'll be mighty disappointed if they don't...
