Good morning all you Whole30 readers! And happy Monday! Today is going to be a great day! Can you guys believe that it’s June 16th already?!?! Where is the summer going!? It’s passing by so quickly!! That’s alright though because I am so excited for this next chapter of life! It is my natural instinct to fear the unknown, so I am always longing for the unknown to become familiar and not so scary. That’s sort of how I feel about this next season of life. I am so beyond excited, but I am just ready to get started so that there won’t be so many unknowns. I will know what my new schedule is going to look like. I will know my students. I will know what it takes to balance being a wife and having a full time job. I will learn all of these new routines and adapt, but in the meantime I am just stuck here wondering what it will all be like! I am ready to get in there and see for myself! I think, well I know that God is constantly trying to teach and remind me to be patient and trust in him, to let go and trust that he will carry me through. I just love to be in control and do everything on my own and in my own timing! I am thankful the Lord is so gentle and patient with me. Maybe one day I will get it right! Probably not. I’m so thankful for grace!
Anyway, yesterday was day 20 of our whole30. We started out with a totally random breakfast because I wanted to get rid of some groceries. We sautéed some onions, cherry tomatoes and spinach and added in some scrambled eggs. It was great!
For dinner Jared grilled some brats and I roasted some purple cabbage and sweet potatoes. It was so delish! We are having the same thing for dinner tonight! I love leftovers!!
And that’s all for day 20!
Just kidding. I lied. Uh oh. I didn’t want to tell you guys, but I have to. We cheated last night. It was a Paleo cheat, but it was still a Whole30 cheat. We made Against All Grain’s Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies last night. They are the best Paleo cookies I have ever eaten. We just really needed a snack to go along with the Heat VS. the Spurs game! GO SPURS!! Yup so that happened. Sorry y’all! I can’t say I feel bad….Maybe I should!??!!?!? Nah. I don’t like to associate guilt with food. We decided to make a Paleo dessert and that was the end of it! Decision made! We are still doing the Whole30! Just had one little “slip up.” 😛 I didn’t take pictures because I didn’t think I was going to share this news! Haha! But I just felt dishonest!
I’ll be back soon! I’m going to review some workout gear later today! Stay tuned! 🙂
