Went to a small Farmer’s Market this morning down the street. It was fun shopping for fruits and vegetables that I have never used or tasted before. I don’t know what some of them are even called, but I’ll figure out what to do with them tomorrow when I am prepping my meals for the week.
I threw a little bit of a for after going to the market because the boys wanted to go to the Original Pancake House, and I didn’t think I was quite ready to be surrounded by so much sweet deliciousness, but I sucked it up. I admit I was a little dramatic when I would barely open the menu because I didn’t even want to see all of the pancakes. But I know it would be torture if I would have read the descriptions of any of them. I kept it Whole30 compliant with a Baja scramble though. Even though I wanted to taste everything in sight.
Sleep: About 7.5 hours of sleep last night. I was exhausted after work. We were slammed from the moment I walked in the door at 5:30 p.m. until about 11 o’clock. I was running my ass off all night.
Activity: Gym is closed again today, so not a whole lot of activity. Wanted to take the dog for a walk, but decided to relax after the food coma from this morning’s breakfast.
Mood: Felt good this morning at the Farmer’s Market, but kind of upset when I found out we were going to the Original Pancake House for brunch. Everyone, I mean literally everyone, around me had something sweet and delicious on their table. French toast, waffles, pancakes, German pancakes, crepes, toast, biscuits, syrup, powdered sugar, custards, compotes… My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I caved and got sliced bananas with my meal. Feel guilty now, even though bananas ARE Whole30 approved, I shouldn’t have given in to my brain telling me to eat something sweet. Oh well. It’s done now. Not feeling too tired again today. No lull, but then again I did have to go to work around my usual nap time. I find myself gritting my teeth a lot because I am starting to get angry when I, or someone else, tells me I can’t have something. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be worse. This is my official apology to anyone who has to be around me this week. I don’t really mean the awful things I say when I am hungry and craving sugar.
Breakfast: Went to the Original Pancake House. Was miserable at first, but that’s where everyone else wanted to go, so I sucked it up and had scrambled eggs with jalapeño, tomato, onion, cilantro, and chorizo. But I did have a sliced banana…
Lunch: Buffalo chicken salad with a baked yam
Dinner: Sweet sauce pork chops with a side of mixed vegetables from work and a bacon and chive sweet potato biscuit
Snacks: A handful of Trader Joe’s raw trek mix and a hard-boiled egg with salt and pepper
