    It’s Day 16 and I’m fired up, taking the bulls by the horn and controlling my outcome.
    7:55 rise and shine.  Trying not to stress and just take one task at a time
    9:00 M1: 2 mini quiche with primal steak sauce, 1 Tbs coconut oil, and 1/2 a grapefruit.
    I felt the hunger coming on so I stopped what I was doing and grabbed some food.  It hit the stop and I’m back at it
    11:30 I got the boys out the door and now I can focus on getting me ready.  Not to mention all the work interruptions I’ve had today.
    1:00 S1: trying to do all things and I felt the hunger rise up so I grabbed the four blackberries I set aside from making a fruit compote for the babies yogurt, and 1 slice of no sugar bacon I just pulled out of the oven.  Both were delicious and well enjoyed.  I’m in the middle of all the food prep for my trip.
    3:00 M2: sweet and sour chicken with onions and peppers on a bed of riced cauliflower with clarified butter.

    OMG this dish is the bomb baby!  I made clarified butter to go over my riced cauliflower.  The ghee is okay for cooking with, but it has a distinct flavor that just doesn’t do it for me as a plated fat.  I’m not a big fan of cauliflower and I was gonna need a tasty plated fat to help me enjoy it.  So I made the attempt.  It turned out great and taste soooooooo much better than the ghee I have.  I will still use the ghee for cooking until I run out.  Now back to the kitchen lol

    2:00 M1: 2 sweet potato mini quiche with spinach and sausage, sautéed cabbage with bacon, sweet potato with almond butter.
    Hello hunger my old friend.  Finally started feeling hungry and it’s hunger because I’ve been drinking lots of water.  I feel better too, the water definitely helped.  Food taste so much better when you are hungry!
    I’m regretting not wearing a belt… I honestly didn’t think I would need it with these pants.  I guess that’s a good problem to have
    11:00 M2:  2 mini quiche and a clementine 
    I’m not really hungry but thinking it would be wise to eat so I don’t get the munchies.   Phew it’s been a long day and it’s not quite over yet.  My mood and energy definitely improved throughout the day.  Water certainly helped.  I went straight to the grocery store when I got back to town.  Grabbed the specialty foods my 11 yr DS will need while with his grandparents and a few other supplies for the boys and the remaining items for my trip.  I’m going to have a successful whole 30 weekend even while traveling and vending.  Let the packing begin!

    It’s Day 14, two weeks compliant and that is saying something!
    7:55 rise and shine. Lots and lots to do today.  Got everyone up and started food prep.  1st up sweet potato mini quiche.  I scored some sausage at Sprouts that is compliant, and it’s got a kick.  I hope I can handle the heat!
    The mini quiche turned out lovely!

    9:30 M1: 1.5 eggs and about 6oz sausage and 1/3c pineapple.
    I had about 1.5 eggs left over and 1/3 of the sausage so I tossed the two in a hot pan and made me a sausage scramble.  Oh I wish I had had some Lettuce left because that would have been great as a wrap.  I finished off the pineapple with it. Yum!  Now to rush off to the boys cooking class.  I have to remember no taste testing the apple pie or quiche they are making.  
    And they plopped a piece of ice cream and pie down in front of me! So I fed most of it to the baby and when he was done… I grabbed the plate and spoon, picked it up took a long whiff as my eyes rolled back into my head I tossed it in the trash. That’s how we tame the inner two year old saying I want it! I want it! I want it!  Not today sweetheart, it just doesn’t match up with your current long term goals darling.  There will be apple pie in your future, just not today so sit your butt down and drink some water.  And so I did.

    This is resonated with my soul this morning after my morning quiet time. 
    They say the bravest thing is for an addict to take the first steps to recovery.  Food is my drug of choice, and I am neck deep in the struggle of recovery.  
    This journey is so much more than just what I choose to put in my mouth!  80% of the struggle is mental/emotional junk I must overcome, and no one but me can do it for me.  
    It is Day 12 and I am resolute today and in this moment to change my mindset and my desires towards food and health.  I am better than I was, but not as well as I could be.  The struggle is slow and long, but temporary.  I am changing.  This is my metamorphosis.

    No I am not far from it.  Back when I used to work in the corporate world full time I would arrive to work an hour early just so I would have to deal with the smell of coffee in the break room.  I’m a tea girl, but I’m even abstaining from that currently.  My sugar dragon is a Siamese twin with caffeine

    6:10 Up and at em.  Another busy work day ahead.  Phew I can do this! 
    7:30 M1: scrambled eggs with garlic powder basil and oregano cooked in coconut oil.  Wilted spinach, roma tomato, 1/4 avocado.  Tossed it all in a plastic container and had to eat on the road.
    Mornings are my nemesis, but I determined to see this through. So take that mornings!  It feels good to be taking care of me.  Also not spending $20-30 at restaurants on days we have to be on the road is a NSV I did not anticipate!
    Trying not to get anxious about next week.  I have to travel with my hubby to help with booth at a big roller skating party.  He has his own business selling roller skates.  I’m talking specialized custom high end roller skates.  We have high end inventory in everything from the boots down to the wheels and bearings.  I am loss control.  I prevent the $200+ wheels from walking away lol.  I help make sales too but truly he’s the real genius.  It’s crazy busy long days, typically on these trip we make it by on one meal and snacks, and hole lot of caffeinated sodas.  So I have to get an idea for compact but filling meals that will be a quick grab and go.  I’m definitely bringing my hot logic, and we have made sure we will have a mini fridge.  My challenge on this trip is we will not be staying at the host hotel, which means I will not have access to my room throughout the day/evening while vending. I’m open to any suggestions so please drop a comment if you have any suggestions that can help me prepare to be whole 30 strong next weekend.
    1:45 M2:  pineapple pork with golden BBQ sauce, asparagus with olive oil and garlic powder, 1/4 avocado and 1/4 cup blueberries.
    I was sooooo hungry at noon, but alas I was pushing through to get done.  Lunch was so yummy.  I’m exited to have time to go to Sprouts while I’m in the city to get some compliant bacon.

    Aw thank you for being open about your emotional journey! I know a lot of us can relate. Forgiving ourselves is a long process. And dang, if my husband asked me to get him fast food right now that would be a real test of our love! haha!

    Day 4 cont
    12:30 M2: getting ready to go shopping and I know better than to not eat.  So I’m feeding baby and me even though I had a late breakfast
    1c protein salad with chicken (mayo, apple, carrots, celery) 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 naval orange
    1:15 baby was in desperate need for a nap, so if I finished my shopping list and then laid down for 45 min.  Got up got baby pottied and diapers in the wash… now to brave the people and go shopping.  
    Finally made it out the door just before 4:00pm… 3 stores in 3 hours with the baby, plus My 17 yr old bonus son.  He surprised me by asking if he could tag along, I figured he would want to wander about the store, nope he stuck by my side.  He was pleasant company even though I was very focused on shopping and keeping baby happy.  We ran through Arby’s to get Hubby food.  It smelled good, but I didn’t want any not even tempted.  Not to say I would never want it again, just not today, not now.  When I got home the boys helped to unload, and I worked on cleaning out fridge and putting food away.  Then to prepare dinner.  Phew  shopping always takes a lot out of me.
    8:45 M3: Sheet pan venison fajitas.  OH MY! These were good!  I was so excited my coconut aminos came in today so I could make these fajitas.  I wrapped mine up in large lettuce leaves and topped with tomatoes and avocados.  I will admit, I would have loved to have cheese sour cream and taco sauce, but even without those condiments they were rather tasty.  My boys scarfed them down, and I had to threaten them to leave the few leftovers for my lunch alone.  
    All in all its been a good day.  My sauces came in so I can try some new recipes with those this week.  I got my shopping done, and even got some canning jars for sauces and bone broth.  I get to cross of another successful day tomorrow.
