Whole30, Day 3

Whole30, Day 3

I am quickly learning how poorly prepared I was to start this program. Called in to work again after already working an early morning shift meant the only thing I had time for today was a nap! I'm frustrated because I really feel like I'm failing already. (Plus my bright idea of blogging all this out means YOU probably think I'm failing too!) It also means I have to work that much harder this weekend to pull stuff together because I'm scheduled for more early shifts next week and need to be ahead of myself in order to make things work! In all aspects too, food prepped, website and social media ready to roll, outfits picked out, on top of regular weekend stuff like laundry, grocery shopping and shooting a Cucina episode. 
 

 Sometimes being silly is the only way to survive a very, very long day!

Again, breakfast was easy. Eggs with peppers and onions. Lunch never really happened though because I came home and slept. So I really only snacked on some homemade potato "chips" and grapes. Then I brought a banana and almond butter to work. 


After getting cleared I picked up my husband and by the time we got out of the city it was 9 pm. Both starved and exhausted, there was no way I was cooking dinner so we went out. Trying to stick with the plan I ordered a salad. I didn't want a salad, what I wanted was a slice of pizza and my bed! I was even more aggravated when I realized once again, while the salad was program compliant, the dressing was not. I generally try not to be a pain in the ass at restaurants because at this point, I've featured enough to know the inner workings and chaos of a professional kitchen on a Friday night. I ate the salad, creamy dressing and all. Failed again.

All I know if I'm going to have to do some serious hustling this weekend if I'm going to make this work over the next week.
