I would literally steal candy from a baby right now. LITERALLY. Right this second. Even if that baby had a half-eaten, gag-inducing Cadbury Creme Egg. The legit ones. The ones that look like a real egg. Wrapped in chocolate.
Of course, that’s after I would punch the How I Met Your Mother writers in the boy parts. I gave you 9 years and you gave me…THAT?!
Guess I don’t have to tell anybody that the Whole30 processed sugar withdrawals have reared their impressively bitchy head.
[And also, was The Craft not one of the best movies of the 90s?!]
For the health of my personal being – but mostly the sake of my marriage – I inhaled dinner, grabbed my current book (Your Inner Fish), and headed to bed early.
Breakfast – Um, I forgot to eat. For real. By the time I did preschool dropoff, ran a couple of errands, and turned in my hour on the treadmill, it was lunchtime.
Lunch – Leftover Spicy Date-Glazed Salmon, a baked sweet potato, and green beans
Dinner – Grilled chicken breasts (plain, grilled with S&P) topped with a mountainous scoop of strawberry-avocado salsa; baked sweet potato, and some steam-in-bag broccoli.
The hardest thing about today? EVERYTHING.
(And I’m a few days behind posting, but I’ve made the strawberry salsa twice this week just to have on hand. Because it also goes great with leftover salmon at lunch, too.)
Not only was it one of the best movies of the 90’s – but it was also one of the best soundtracks of the 90’s too. Love it!
That looks freakin delicious. The movie matches your mood!! You have to love all the eyeliner..
Have you seen the fan edit ending of HIMYM? After I watched it, I felt my rage subsiding…of course, I’m not doing the Whole 30, so that may be why. Catch it here, and see if it helps: http://popwatch.ew.com/2014/04/02/how-i-met-your-mother-ending-alternate-fan/
You can do it!! Just push through these first few days and it will all be so much better. (says the girl who just had pie <–hypocrite)
I love Your Inner Fish! Another good, albeit denser, read is Skull Wars.
And, unrelated, do you eat fruit-flavored yogurt on this diet? I’ve done similar diets in the past, and yogurt is one of the only ways I’ve avoid a series of violent crime sprees/sobbing fits. For real.
Re: your PF – do you by any chance do yoga? I had nagging PF for more than a year, and had basically dropped running altogether and it still didn’t go away. It finally stopped after I stopped going to yoga because of a pregnancy and a change in the class time such that I couldn’t make it anymore. I picked up running again (slowly increasing mileage) after my pregnancy, and have not had any PF issues yet (fingers crossed!), so I think yoga must have been aggravating it, even though I thought it was supposed to help prevent it. One other thought- did you try a boot or a strassburg sock for sleeping? I tried the sock for a while, but eventually bought a boot on amazon that helped a lot. PF is an incredibly frustrating injury, I know. Best of luck.
I don’t do yoga, but I do have a boot and just felt like it was kind of a waste last year. However, I’m a little more than halfway through the Whole30, doing 4-5 hour-long treadmill sessions a week, and am having almost virtually no pain/issues so far this week!
UGH! PF is Awful. I still wear ugly, but comfortable shoes three years after mine healed because I’m afraid of getting it again. I ended up doing physical therapy + boot + enough Advil to damage my stomach + exercises and it finally got better about 9 months after I started. Good luck!!
Thinking of doing the Whole30 thing, too. When I told my husband last night, he lovingly reminded me of what a complete bitch I was that week I tried to eat only raw foods a couple years ago. Ha! These stories make the best memories, eh? Doesn’t mean I won’t try to top it! 🙂 Any other good Whole30 recipes you love?
