Whole 30—Day 5

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.  Embarrassed smile 

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 Smile
