Well, it’s Day 5 of my adventure. I’ve already blogged once today. I haven’t exercised, but I think I’m okay with that at the moment. I’d love to go for a walk. Maybe I’ll take the dog in a bit.
Breakfast was Egg Plant Hole in Your Head. It was um. . I think it was good. I don’t remember having egg plant before, but sautéed in Olive Oil was really good. I ate the centers after I cut them out for the eggs. I had 3 eggs over easy with the egg plant, cooked in coconut oil w/ sea salt. The sea salt really upset my stomach. So for breakfast I had 3 slices of egg plant (essentially the whole egg plant since it was small) and 3 eggs.
Then I dropped my kids off at VBS and headed to Massage Envy. A couple year’s ago, Stephen got me a membership to Massage Envy. I don’t go every month. I get a teacher’s discount. And I’m so thankful for it. Today, I was able to enjoy a 2 hour massage. It was wonderful. Worked out all sorts of kinks I’m having. I still feel good from it.
Lunch was Subway – I know I’ve been eating out quite a bit this week. I just haven’t managed to get to the grocery store for lunch foods – and I only like to cook once a day. I know it’s completely pathetic, but it’s how I am. I need to check every week on Sunday to see if I need to go to the grocery store, because if I don’t, and then I do need to go, it never happens. I should have went yesterday. I went swimming instead.
Anyway, I had the Chicken and Spinach Salad with Avocado and Oil and Vinegar Dressing. Very good. Very healthy. Full of Veggies.
We came home and I cleaned up the kitchen mess and prepared lemonade. The kids wanted to have a lemonade stand. I wasn’t thrilled but decided it would make for some good entertainment. They set up at 3:00 and I believe they made about $10 by the time we closed it at 6:00. The neighbor kid helped, so we split the profits. They all wanted something from the ice cream man, so $6 to the ice cream man. Cayden didn’t help after about 1 1/2 hours so Hannah and Gabriel split the rest and shared $.75 with Cayden (which I thought was really sweet, but Cayden was very angry). Taught them a little about economics, and I wasn’t out any $$ when it came to buying from the ice cream man.
This evening dinner was AMAZING! First I’m so proud of myself for conquering Homemade Mayo. I used the girl’s advice from Every Day Paleo and used my stand mixer instead of my blender. It’s a little thinner than say, store Mayo, but it’s totally Mayo!! Whoop! Whoop!!
And then I took that mayo, well some of it, and made chicken salad with the left over chicken from last night. I totally jacked up the Whole 30 without realizing it though. I put pesto in it. Spinach and Walnut Pesto from the Farmer’s Market. Well, I did not realize my pesto had parmesan in it until I ate some. I only but 2 tablespoons in the whole chicken salad, but unfortunately, I blew it. And I will eat all of this by the end of the weekend. It’s okay. I forgive me. Whole 30 forgives me. And I’m still on Day 5
