    BabyBear got a reaction from SchrodingersCat in Office lunch game changer   
    I have this little workhorse that i have been using at least 3-4 times a week for 6 years to prepare lunches when I’m away from home for meetings, classes, conferences, etc.  it’s called the Hot Logic Mini.  You put in your left overs and plug it in and it heats it to the perfect temp and keeps it there until you are ready to eat, plus it doesn’t overcook or burn your food.  It also does a great job cooking fresh or frozen ingredients into a meal as well.  I’ve tossed frozen chicken breast or salmon with frozen veggies and a dressing and had a delicious meal to sit down to at lunch time.  No fuss no microwave.  I also use it for when I need a lunch for me and my three boys during a homeschool tutorial or a summer day camp.  It holds enough food to feed all of us well.  If you meal prep you just grab a meal place it the bag and go.  Plug it in and let it cook while you do your thing.  I will often use this at home instead of the microwave to reheat my meal just because it taste better.  All of the claims they make on how to use it on the website actually work and work well.  I had BBQ chicken, baked potato and baked apples for lunch today. I plugged it in when I got to my location and it was hot and delicious when I was ready to eat, which was a good thing because I only had 15 minutes between meetings.  Now it’s heating up my fajita meat to add to a salad for dinner later.  Seriously this has been a game changer for me when it comes to packing a lunch.  The hot logic mini is currently on sale.  I encourage you to go check it out.

    Ghee was a massive success! I'm never buying it again.
    So was lunch, everything was so delicious! I admit I ate way more than I am accustomed to at the moment, and dinner will be a very light affair. 
    It was so great to catch up with my friend, and just hang out.

    Hi Everyone!
     
    I'm Patrick and I'm starting the Whole30 tomorrow (Monday, June 1st 2020) with my mom. I have been back and forth with my health for a few years now. While I have been relatively health-conscious, I haven't achieved a sustainably healthy lifestyle that allows me to maintain my goals long-term. This is definitely a time of transition in my life: I am currently living at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, after which I will be relocating to LA for work. I was also recently in an accident that broke my collarbone that I am still recovering from. Since there's a lot of upcoming changes in my life, I think this is an ideal time for me to establish healthy habits that will carry me forward!
    These are the main goals I have for my Whole30 experience:
    Become Slimmer - I have always struggled with my body image and my relationship with food. I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror and be confident in how I look. Improve my Relationship with Food - I want to improve my relationship with food and view it as a source of nourishment and get rid of poor eating habits. Specifically, intentionless and emotional eating habits are ones that I would like to squash. Mental Clarity - I have noticed that lately I've been really foggy mentally, and I think this is due to the sugar I've been consuming. I am hoping Whole30 will help me clear the fog. Kill the Sugar Dragon - I've had a sweet tooth for as long as I can remember and crave sugar/carbs regularly. Ever since I was little, I've always been unfulfilled if I didn't have a dessert after dinner. This is a habit I would like to get out of. Thanks everyone in advance for your support. I wish you all luck on your journeys!

    Day 3:
    Breakfast: chia "pudding" with blueberries, bananas, and almond butter Lunch: arugula salad with roast beef and turkey; lime juice and homemade guacamole Dinner: cauliflower rice, roasted squash, turkey burger with guacamole Dessert: bowl of fruit (pineapple, banana, frozen peaches) Snacks: chia "pudding" with cocoa powder and cinnamon chia "pudding" with pineapple slices zucchini noodles with cashews and whole30 spicy asian dressing  
    Thoughts:
    I was feeling very well rested yesterday and surprisingly clear-minded! I had a few more snacks than I would have liked but I'm happy that I'm going for Whole30 options. I'm beginning to crave Whole30 compliant things (specifically fruit and zucchini noodles). I was craving something sweet yesterday evening but I went for a walk and by the time I got back I had forgotten about it.

    Y’all got me all teary  eyed. Thank you for the words of encouragement.  
    Water! Water! Water!  I realized I’ve hardly been drinking anything at all. A sip of water or Gatorade here a chug of chocolate milk there.  So I’m working on drinking all my water today.  I’ve had 51 Oz so far today and it has helped.  Not only was I exhausted I had also been dealing with dehydration.  We declared today a TV free day which has also helped us all be more productive.    
    Im going to steal a nap while baby naps before my skate son gets here to help me mount skate boots to fill some more orders.  Im so grateful to have his help as he is definitely more confident with the power tools.  Plus he’s taller than me so he can use the counter mount block.  I was struggling to get a mount block set up on the floor but make it inaccessible to the toddler.  We seem to have a good system going where he mounts and I get the hardware installed.

    BabyBear reacted to scoakley13 in Pants don't fit and I'm tired   
    Last night dinner - I was tired after my exercise so I made a simple burger patty and ate some canned green beans. Very boring but did the trick. 
    Movement - four mile run/walk (mile run/mile walk/mile run/mile walk)
    I was tired most of the day yesterday due to lack of sleep Tuesday night. I forced myself to go to the Greenway for my run/walk. I got it done but crashed as soon as I got home. My anti-depressant is great but it makes me tired and also gives me insomnia sometimes. That's a horrible combination and I feel for anyone who has to deal with it on a regular basis. 
     
    Day 3 - May 28
    Breakfast - nothing - I overslept 
    Lunch - leftover apple/bacon smothered pork chops
    Planned Dinner - grilled apple and pork kabobs - https://www.thesophisticatedcaveman.com/grilled-apple-and-pork-kabobs/
    Planned Movement - none! rest day
    I feel ok today. I'm still a little tired but it's date night so I'm excited to see my boyfriend (I hate that term since we're both 44 but don't know what else to use).

    It's been less than an hour and I'm journaling again....
    I read through some of the other journals and became inspired reading about how quickly changes were noticed.  I remembered that 6 weeks ago I had planned to look at and possibly buy one or two Whole 30 books, that I should listen to music everyday on my healthy habit list, and that I should return to tracking pain and energy levels, and add mood to that.  Current pain=0, energy=5 (I'm inspired, so a little higher than it has been), mood=5.  I was a 3 this morning, but again, feeling inspired has helped.    
    So since my last post 58 minutes ago, I've:
    Ordered the Whole 30 Day-by-Day and Food Freedom books, will arrive tomorrow
    Fixed and ate lunch-2 hotdogs with saurkraut, leftover risotto.  My victory here is in not grabbing a handful of Skittles or a bag of chips and actually thinking about and preparing (albeit microwaving) lunch.  I almost threw away the risotto, but decided not to - I'm not officially on Whole 30 yet, risotto is one of my favorite foods and I am really good at making it (it will be missed!!!), and it's a little too expensive to waste, given the ingredients in it.  
    Finished one liter of water
    Set my alarm for 4:00 pm to go for the second mile walk of the day.  
    Turned on some music
    Going to refill my liter bottle and do some work this afternoon.  I feel that a weight is lifted.  Maybe when I get back here, I'll set a date to set my Whole 30.

    This week has been the longest year.  This is the first time in 9 days that I have had the time alone along with the mental and emotional ability to check in.  I am exhausted.  I’ve not done a good job caring for me, because all of my energy has been thrusted into taking care of literally everyone.  My husband broke his right humorous above the elbow on a Sunday night before Memorial Day.  They put him in a splint and sent him home.  He literally could do nothing without extreme pain.  He needed help getting in and out of bed, getting dressed, even plugging in his phone.  On top of that I had to take over getting Skate orders filled I have shipped over 40 different orders in the past few days.  Plus all the other things around the house my hubby takes care of normally.  I also had the toddler in final stages of potty independence, and trying not regress with his progress.  My work and everyone needing me all at the same time.  Oh and the added stress has kicked morning sickness and hormone headaches into over drive.  Most days I was doing good to remember to eat at least once a day.  Finally my husband received the surgery to put the bone back together yesterday.  He’s in so much pain but at least now his bones aren’t shifting and clapping together when he needs to move.  I’m not out of the weeds yet, but at least I feel like he is finally starting to recover.  I’m just taking this one day at a time and doing what I can to survive.  My eating hasn’t been horrid but it has been more about convenience and ease right now.  Ill be back to my whole 30 compliant eating sooner than later, hopefully next week.  I just got to get my feet back under me.

    Good morning! Day... 18? 
    The last couple of nights I have struggled to get to sleep due to to twitchy legs. It's been really weird. It's like there's this twitch in my lower back that makes my legs feel weird and I just want to keep moving them. I hope it goes away.
    So last night I actually did a workout. Exercise is supposed to make you release happy endorphins, right? This one just made me maaaaaaaad. No reason, just like epic PMS cranky. It passed, eventually, but I was a bit of a sook for the rest of the night.
    But, I've decided to make the effort to go back to Taekwondo. I've found a dojang not far from my house, with an instructor who seems really great. I reached a provisional black belt a few years ago at a really cool family run dojang, and then it moved one direction and I moved the other direction and I couldn't make classes any more. Tried a couple of dojangs closer to me, but one was a chain which was really cookie-cutter and the other was more of a MMA gym and it was whoa to go and nothing in between. This one seems a lot like my old dojang, to the point I was chatting to the instructor about my original dojang and she knows my old instructor and says her style is much the same. 
    When I was doing TKD years ago, I was at my healthiest, lightest and fittest. I really enjoyed it (I really don't like just exercising for exercises' sake, I think learning something). Class doesn't go back in-person until the end of June, but that gives me 4 weeks to try and crank up some fitness, and the motivation to do so (falling over dead at your first class back is rather embarrassing). So I'm trying to actually do the 30 minutes exercise a day that I've been repeatedly committing to. 
    Anywhoo.
    Meal 1: Leftover turkey stew with broccoli
    Meal 2: Hmmmm. i have a freezer full of food and very little inspiration. Maybe stuffed peppers because I bought too many - I could do a Mediterranean style meatloaf mix and bake them in. That could work. EDIT: opened the freezer and remembered I made a bunch of beef, smoked tomato and mushroom sausages, so they're dinner with mashed root veg (I'm on a kick lately) and sauteed brussel sprouts and beans.

    OK, so I just need to flag this, because it is a big deal for me - I'm a rule follower and an all or nothing type of person and I find it difficult to adapt when someone moves the goalposts, so I'm just going to acknowledge that.... I'm putting peas in the turkey pot pie tonight. 
    I have a weird mental relationship with peas. Weight Watchers always counted the 'points' of them when all veggies were free, and that led me to thinking peas were 'bad'. Then W30 banned them, so I kept avoiding them, even thought I love them. Now they're ok on W30, as I believe they should be, but my little pea-brain (see what I did there?) is like "aaaaahhhh, noooo peas are non-compliant and if you eat them, you may as well go to McDonalds!". So why eat them then, you ask? Because this whole all or nothing thing I have going on is bad, and I need to start transitioning to proper life habits and not "I'm on track/I'm off track" being "I eat vegetables/I eat my bodyweight in junk"
    So, peas. In my dinner. While on round. And I'm going to enjoy them.

    Good morning, I appear to have slept off the headache, which is a boon. Hopefully it stays away!
    Day 17, they're just flying by! I'm starting to really turn my mind to what after 30 days is going to look like. Part of me wants to commit to a longer strict round, another part wants to transition to "paleo" (i.e. with some swypo - though I'm having that now, where I feel it's warranted and I'm not planning on getting into paleo baking because my sugar dragon doesn't care if it's dates or rock candy, it will hoover that shiz), part of me wants to stay compliant unless I don't, i.e. occasions - not that there's many of those lately. I need a plan, because a cat without a plan is a piggy. I guess I'm afraid of committing to a longer round because I'm scared of 'failing', which is silly because this round has been a breeze, and I've got nothing on the horizon that's going to mess it up.
    Anyway, prepare to hear me ruminate over that a lot over the next week and a half
    Meal 1: We have lots of leftovers which I should really get through, so I'll probably just have what's left of my lamb shanks with a bit of root veg mash and some steamed broccoli. 
    Meal 2: I have lots of leftover turkey from the roast I did, so I'm making a compliant 'turkey pot pie' which I'll then put into individual dishes and top with mashed root veg for me, mashed potato for the hubster. Side of green beans and broccolini.

    Today was day 30!!!!  Yay!!!  I've said this before but gonna say it again- I'm planning on continuing to do another 30 days as my cravings still pop up as well as my sleep, energy, and aches are still too much of a presence and I want to see if giving my gut more time to heal will be beneficial.  I've struggled a bit with identifying non-scale victories I guess because the ones I was hoping for haven't come to fruition yet.    But, It is a victory that I made all but one meal at home over the past 30 days.  I ordered a whole30 bowl from chipotle once.  Typically, I'd feel so spent and tired after work that I wouldn't feel like cooking so I'd just order something from somewhere or go through a drive through.  So- in that respect, I guess I do have a bit more energy.  lol. It is a victory to stick to my commitment.  It is a victory that I was able to say no to temptations and find other ways to cope with the stress and emotions (although sometimes sleeping throughout the day or staying immersed in social media doesn't seem very healthy either).  
    And let's be honest... I'm really looking forward to seeing what my scale victory is as well.  That will wait until tomorrow morning.  But, I did take measurements tonight and there is a slight difference in some areas.  So I'll take it!!!
    Here are the results:  (Measured myself so they may not be exactly accurate). S=start; C=current
    Waist @ belly button- S= 53.5"; C= 52"
    Waist @ narrowest point- S= 45"; C= 44 1/4"

    I'm back! 
    I ended up having to make some adjustments to my medication, which led to overwhelm (too many changes all at once) so I decided to focus on one thing at a time.
    After I adjusted my dosage I started to feel better and able to incorporate some daily movement. I started doing yoga every morning and have managed to stick with it for 10 consecutive days - a small victory! What I've learned is that it's preferable to do it every day, even if it's just 10 minutes, and keep the momentum going rather than aim for so-called perfection. I will be doing the same with W30 - aiming for consistency over perfection. I'm happy to report I have been reading and listening to more music as well, and feel much better for it. So I managed to tackle my goal list... with the exception of food, lol. 
    Tomorrow will be my new Day 1

    I got ready to head out the door to work yesterday - realized I hadn't eaten anything, and I had no plan.  Grabbed a pile of air fryer bacon sitting on the counter, and a teeny tiny can of tuna salad that I had gotten back when coronavirus first hit.  Because, you know ... we would all survive a really long time with that tiny can to save us!  
    So I crammed that food down at about 4pm at work.
    Got home at about 11:30 pm and had a big bowl of cole slaw veggies, with HB eggs chopped up in it, and an obscene amount of Tessamae's ranch.  That hit the spot - and I promptly passed out.  In my scrubs.

    Yesterday my friend came again for a couple of hours, and we got the cabinets all finished - and when he left, I finished the flooring.  Finally!  People, I am so done with flooring.  Lol.  Then I painted about half of the kitchen.
    Whew.
    I haven't talked about it here yet - but my MIL is coming to live with us.  We are going to travel 800 miles this weekend to get her.  I know I talked about it a couple of months ago, when we thought it was going to happen - but now, it's for real.  She can no longer stay with her mother, and we do not want to put her in a facility.  Not at this point.  If we reach that point down the road, it still needs to be a facility here with us.
    We were given this deadline - she has to be out of her mom's government-subsidized duplex by June 1 - or they are going to kick them BOTH out.  Yikes.  So this news came in the middle of these projects I had already started - and now, I'm in a rush to get them finished.
    My husband has used the words "I am in panic mode" and I have been steadily countering that with: "It's going to be okay".
    It's going to be okay.  ...It IS going to be okay.
    But man, there's a lot to do.
    --
    So, while I was working, working yesterday - he says he and the kids are going to Arby's.  I say, I'll take the 1/2 pound of beef, no bun.
    They come home, food sits on the counter for a bit ... and when I get to a stopping point to finally EAT - all I see is a bowl with (apparently beef under there somewhere) a GIANT gob of Arby's cheddar sauce concoction.
    My initial reaction was one of shock: "Whose is this? You didn't get this for ME, did you?"
    ..."Oh, shit, sorry, I just had it in my head that you wanted what I get, and I get the beef & cheddar."
    Somewhere in there, I threw out the fact that "I've been doing Whole 30 for about a month and a half now".  But mainly, I clammed up.  Like, just snapped shut.  He offered to go get me what I wanted, and I said forget it.  It doesn't matter.  I don't want it.
    And I just kept working.  Working, working, working.
    But I was hurt.
    --
    At some point I grabbed a banana.
    Then later - much later - I had him peel me a potato for the air fryer.  I crammed that down with some ranch.  I ate some cole slaw veggies in the remaining ranch on my plate. Then he cooked frozen steaks in the air fryer.  I ate maybe a few ounces of steak - it was red inside, which I don't enjoy, and it had some "weird spots" I couldn't handle.  
    So, as you can imagine - after going, going, going like some kind of freaking machine ALL day - the bag of wavy Lay's called to me at about midnight.  And I ate them.
    Zero regret here re: chips ... my only regret is that I didn't fuel myself properly throughout the day, and it affected my mood, and it caught up to me at a time when I should have been in bed.
    Today is a new day.    Sending love, light, and good vibes out there to anyone reading.  "It's going to be okay!"
