Well, I’ve made it to the halfway mark. Happy Hump Day! Ahhh… after this weekend, today was a piece of cake. It’s so nice when I plan ahead. Things are so much simpler. Today was pretty good on the other fronts, too- not hungry all the time, moderate energy. Still, it’s nothing like what I thought it would be. I thought I would have enough energy to do some serious workouts. But I still get tired at the end of the day. I still have trouble waking up early (although I will say that once I’m up and moving, I’m rarely tired again). But I still have a little over two weeks to go. So there’s still time!
I have a pretty boring meal discussion today. Sorry– It’s been a long day.
Breakfast= Potatoes and Sausage
Ok… I needed a break from eggs.
Lunch= Leftover gumbolaya
Nothing like comfort food for lunch! Spicy Cajun goodness! Yum!
Snack= Apple chips
I finished the apple chips my sister lovingly sent me last week. So delicious!!!
Dinner= Minute Steak with Sauteed Onions, Mashed Potatoes, and Salad
I intended to cook bacon wrapped chicken for dinner, but I got home late, so instead I made minute steak with onions. The last time I made this, I think I did something wrong because it was hard. This time, I just browned it on both sides, added some water to the skillet, sliced some onions, and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. I know this goes against the purpose of the MINUTE steak, but I had to make the potatoes.
Mashed potatoes is something I wasn’t quite sure I’d be able to eat without dairy. I boiled the potatoes and then whipped them with an electric mixer once they were done. Then I removed about 1 cup of the potato, and added milk and butter for Jonathan. I just loaded mine with salt, pepper, and a little gravy from the meat.
The plate looked a little lonely once I put the potatoes and steak on the plate. So I made some salad. Dinner was served, and it was delicious!
I’ve come a long way, but I’ve also got a long way to go. I’m so excited to see final results at the end of Whole 30! Now off the the gym!
