Whole30/September Reflections Day 11 & 12

Hello! Yesterday was busy and we got home late from practice, so I skipped my journal last night. Today has been wonderful! We got up and got Ava to school/Nick to work. Ana and I lounged around and watched shows together and got our morning snuggle in. I cooked me a yummy breakfast. Left over steak pieces, potatoes and eggs cooked in avocado oil and ghee. I had some orange juice as well. I had a lovely time talking to my best friend on the phone for almost an hour.(thank you Ana, Haddon and Brooklyn for being so accommodating) πŸ™‚ It was so good to catch up and visit. We got ready and went to Eat-Rite here in town and found some tapioca flour to use for a recipe! I found some yummy almond butter there too. Found out I can’t eat it until after whole-30 because it has sugar in it.. but alas. I’m going to see if the girls like it instead of peanut butter…who knows. πŸ™‚ haha! We went to Market Street next to get groceries and I had a great experience. It has been a long while since I enjoyed a trip to United. I loved it for so long because it helped shape me as a person, working for them for a total of almost 10 years. Today I just really was so happy.

-bought a fall mum on sale πŸ™‚
-they have Nutpods!
-found a different almond/coconut milk creamer
-they have compliant bacon, Chomps jerky sticks, and some R Bars and RX Bars…
-our whole30 emergency food stash is on point right now.
-also found some new bubbly water and realized the spiralized veggies and cauli rice is in the frozen section and that works well for us this week.
-earned 5 rewards and got .50 off per gallon of gas today. πŸ™‚ Filled up my 4Runner for $38 bucks. woop!

So, I have not felt such control over my food related choices, probably ever in my life. I think even last time we did this, I wasn’t this focused or doing so well. I’m very thankful.

This grocery run today, was super easy and I found some awesome helpful products to keep us going the next week and a half or so. Keeping things simple is the best way to do this. I’ve given myself release to just keep things simple and maybe do a new recipe once a week. It is so so helpful. πŸ™‚

This weekend looks to be fairly easy going and not too busy! Looking forward to spending time at home, doing some yard work, playing with the kids, church and rest. πŸ™‚

Y’all have a great Friday!!
