Whole30: Day 24
What does it say about me that I’m writing here while eating a baked (well, microwaved) sweet potato WITH MY HANDS. Nothing good, probably. It is tasty, though!
And, while catching the elevator to my floor (with my sweet pot in hand) a lady I work with said to me: “Well, it looks like you’re eating plan is working! You look like you feel great!” Which is kind of the best compliment – a) because she didn’t call it a “diet” (even if it was implied), and b) She didn’t comment on my actual appearance, but the appearance of how I feel. Diplomatic, that one!
Truth is, though, today I feel less great. It has nothing to do with food, and everything to do with this looming date of March 15th, which will mark a year since my mom’s death. Ugh. I don’t even wanna write about it, so this might be all you get. I don’t really know what else to say.
So I’ll talk about food instead. Yay food. Or my outfit. If yesterday, I looked like a hobo, then today I look like I’m going to a wedding. After work, we hit the Shop-O-Rama, as RR likes to call it, and I bought a pair of non-hobo jeans a SIZE LARGE button-up shirt. That is some seriously crazy shit. Anyhow – so today, I look nicer. And less like someone might give me their spare change.
Food – last night we had beef with broccoli and cauliflower fried “rice.” Again, I was totally surprised by its deliciousness. Who knew cauliflower could be so good? Not me, dude.
Tonight is breakfast for dinner! Bacon, eggs, almond flour (sans honey) pancakes, and more bacon. OK fine, probably just a little bit of bacon. But bacon’s bacon, y’all!
