Whole30 Day 25

I keep having very vivid dreams that I break the "rules" and eat a bunch of breads or something else off plan. It's disheartening. This morning the feeling from the dream is still there and I'm actually sad. This week has been hard for me not to go back to my old ways and emotionally eat. I guess I did a little but it's been with healthy foods at least.
Last night my littlest had her first Christmas program. It was absolutely adorable. Afterwards, my little family got cupcakes. I obviously opted out. 

So apparently I've stopped taking food pictures. Ok. Everything seems to be a repeat right now anyway. 
Meal1: chicken with bell peppers and onion in a turkey broth. 
Then some guacamole with green bell pepper and cucumber. 
Meal 2: chicken chili soup 
Strawberries and almond butter
Clean jerky with no soy sauce. 
Half a Laura bar
Meal3: tacos of grassfed ground meat and chicken, bell peppers, onion and guac. And broccoli. 

Feeling frustrated with my acne. Which has improved but due to scaring and a recent flare up, doesn't really look like it. 

And wanting to eat all the comfort foods around. Secretly I allowed myself to finish up my whole30 tonight. Tomorrow is my husbands birthday and our Christmas party and it just made sense to just end it five days early. But I couldn't bring myself to eat any of it. So here I am still :)

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum. 
Leftover…
