I guess I was so excited to get the eggs right, I ate them all instead of saving some! oh well...I know I've cooked them properly before, which is why it was so frustrating to suddenly get them wrong twice in a row, but boiling the water first (and letting the eggs warm up on the counter while waiting) seemed to do the trick!
11:15am - spinach, red bell pepper, onion frittata
8:30pm - 2 hamburgers, one sweet potato 'bun', romaine leaf, roasted red pepper mayo; roasted potatoes
so I seem to be screwing up the '3 meals a day' thing, as well as eating within an hour of waking up. my water consumption has dropped, too. I'm a bit tired of all the food - I just want to Not eat for a day or two, but that must be one of the lessons. in order to keep the machine functioning, it needs the proper fuel.
10:00am - onion, red bell pepper, broccoli frittata
4:00pm - 2 bowls of salad
8:30pm - 5 hard boiled eggs
is it me? or can I eat an extraordinary amount of hard-boiled eggs at a time...
8:45am - standard breakfast frittata
4:30pm - ground turkey on salad with rstd. red pepper mayo
8:30pm - same
I think I get it: take one day, cook three different proteins, make a sauce, make a big salad, slice some veggies, done!
10:15am - onion, sweet potato, broccoli scrambled eggs (3); veggie broth
3pm-ish - banana; protein salad (beef, celery, onion, grapes, rstd. red pepper mayo, drop of pesto, squeeze of lemon, salt, pepper) with lettuce & spinach in bell pepper
10:30pm-ish - a few bites of protein salad...
reevaluating my commitment to getting this done. spent some time meal planning, looked through my book some more - for recipes, to refresh my memory on how to do the re-introductions, and found there's a conclusion I'd like to read on the last day or so. soon after I started the Whole30, I thought I might take the month of July to get in shape a bit, because I have reason to need to increase my endurance, given some upcoming plans. so I think the newer way of eating, mixed with some moderate exercise might really give me a push in the direction towards better health, don't you? a friend suggested a few places to ride my bike, because an old foot injury can make long-distance walking uncomfortable for me.
1:30pm - turkey protein salad on romaine and spinach
6pm-ish - leftover turkey salad
8:00pm - spaghetti squash & meat sauce
oh, I'm so tired of the cooking and eating! and cleaning! that's the treat I'm going to give myself at the end of this - a fast! I over-indulged on food Sunday night, and my belly paid for it Monday morning. not feeling my best, and almost screwed up a job, but managed to save it at renegotiated terms. I had an unexpected guest late Saturday night, and it threw me off this dimensional reality for a day or more, maybe still ~ ~ ~
well, that's the weekly report, just a few days left, and a few more after that...hang in there, I've got poetry and summoned a god so far, let's see what else manifests before I'm through!
