Pre-Days Before June 1, 2018-Whole30 Beginning

May 29th. Picture taken in my favorite go-to clothes for my afternoon job. Pants push the rolls above the waist line, as usual….I sit down and the rolls roll even more. All the more reason to do Whole30. One of the good things about doing this in June is because the garden produce will be coming in strong! Cucumbers, squash, green beans, peppers, and eventually tomatoes and okra. I have okra left in the freezer from 2 years ago that I will be using up in soups. Came to the conclusion that my eating habit during this journey will be a nice breakfast, a larger lunch or the heavier meal and soup for supper rather than a heavy meal. Soups are so good for the soul, inside and out. Thank goodness hubby likes soups too. I made a pot of chicken soup yesterday for this week and it is all Whole30 compliant and it turned out really good! That’s supper for me this week to get me in the groove of lighter suppers. We usually eat late, so that works well for late meals. My goal this week is to go through my office room and make some sense out of the mess it is in…..yesterday was a start but it’s a long way from being finished.

May 30, 2018      Not a great day. Didn’t eat like I should have and all my ambition went down the drain when I got home. Hubby went to a t-ball game and I had the house to myself. I actually ate supper before 6:30 and had my shower before 8:00. Sad part is that I had a hard time going to sleep. My brain was tossing around just like my body was. Should have gotten up and read or write stuff here. Oh well….

May 31, 2018-Pre-Whole30 day:   Not a bad day so far. I am excited but a little apprehensive about tomorrow. I ate a scrambled egg before 8:30 this am and went to spiff up a house I clean. Did some running around and came home.

Made me some what I am going to call my “Wow Juice”.

Wow Juice

Fresh squeezed orange juice (16 ounces) bought at the store, fresh peeled ginger piece (about a good 1 inch piece), fresh peeled turmeric knob(use gloves or your hands will turn yellow!), and ground red pepper(a little over ¼ teaspoon). Blend in Vitamix until all is mixed and no chunks. Pour into glass jar, drink about 2 ounces of it and put in fridge.

I went to my office job and it was slow but I made it through. One of the guys had a birthday today and there was cake, yes, I had a piece. I am tired and draggy from it. Came home and made a broccoli shred salad for bunco tonight and I hope to have left overs because it is compliant! Also drank another shot of “Wow” juice, that woke me up! Yes, I will continue making that, it’s really gooood! Tomorrow’s plan is to take measurements, eat some eggs and veggies and ½ an avocado and have my coffee and vitamins. I will be going into my office job since it is first of the month rental stuff. Wow juice will be my first shot, though! It will wake you up for sure! Whole30 Day 1 posting should happen tomorrow evening.  may not post everyday here, but I will journal and post several days at a time like I did for Pre-Whole30, and have recipes or recipe references form the books they came from.

Hugs and blessing, y’all!
