Do you know how hard it is to go to class when: 1.) the teacher e-mails you the Powerpoint slides 2.) it’s a chilly 40 degrees outside 3.) I’ve mentally graduated and 4.) my bed looked extra warm and comfy…. Yes, it was one of those mornings – I debated going to class up until I was walking out my door. I actually did make it to class and I’m glad I went because we got points for going. Looks like I’m not the only one with terrible Senioritis!
Today is officially day 27. Seriously this has gone by so fast. I thought it would drag on and just make me annoyed, but it’s been the complete opposite. I think writing about it has made it go faster and easier, since I feel somewhat accountable for making it public that I’m cleaning it up for a month (or more). I also made it through another movie night filled with munchy crunchy goodness popcorn all around me! Thank you, coconut flakes!
Saturday consisted of a 9-5 workday back at home, and I was able to avoid eating any of the protein bars and drinks that are for sale. What I did munch on was awesome… Salmon mixed with shredded zucchini and avovado. YUM. I’m sure my co-workers enjoyed the aroma as I blabbed on how good it tasted.
Yesterday, I went in to CrossFit Instinct for a Westside Barbell workout with some BAMF ladies. Worked on dynamic bench, HSPUs, dips, chest-to-bar and butterfly pullups, and some hollow-body holds. Fun! Then I got to hang with my sissy, Molly. =) She recommended new hair stuff for me (thank god!) and we went to a few other places. Funny thing is, we went to Target and checked out the new food aisles ooh-ing and mmm-ing at non-Paleo food – but, we ended up leaving with only Larabars! Nice try, pop-tart and cookie advertisements!
I am so thankful that my parents are such healthy people… I had a home cooked Whole30 meal with them last night and it was aaawwweeesssommmmee. Part of it was because everything tastes better when made by my mom and it was something different. I had some chicken, parsnip-zucchini “pancakes”, and salad. Here’s a picture of the salad made by my mom (all Whole30 ingredients!)
I attempted to shred zucchini and parsnips in the food processor and make something like potato pancakes… Let’s just say those are a trial and error thing. Not so pancakey and not very pretty. They tasted good, though!
Ok. I have to go drag myself to class now. Two more for the day then store time! I love going grocery shopping. Time for some new recipes tonight… More updates later!
