I thought I ate too much yesterday! Whoo! Today was meant to be a day of switching my new cell phone (I dropped my old one in water) and then, driving for Lyft some more, but I got a last minute call to work a day on Legion! This was the perfect test for my newfound Food Experiment.
I made a quick breakfast of two eggs, a gala apple, and some raisins (along with the required coffee). Next, for my first energy boost during the work day, I snuck to crafty and grabbed a boiled egg, a banana, and a chamomile tea. But… I was locking up near crafty and continued to graze. I had a quarter cup of raw, unseasoned almonds and two little cups of applesauce.
Luckily, for lunch, our catering company, Chef Robért Catering goes above and beyond and offers some out-of-this-world meal options. They truly think of any diet option and as a result, their selection is vast. I was able to load my plate with all Whole30-friendly options like a thick cut of Filet Mignon, roasted potatoes, bok choi, grilled cauliflower, honeydew slices, and some halved strawberries.
Later in the evening, the show ordered us a coffee truck and I partook in an almond milk latte with cinnamon sprinkled in.
I soon ordered another chamomile from the coffee truck, and then picked a small group of grapes from crafty.
And finally, on the way home, I had an apple. Now, this is largely how I ate before Whole30, so this wasn’t anything new. What is new, is that I didn’t get the occasional cookie or a soda, or even some chicken enchiladas (the latter of which was the hardest to avoid).
Clearly, I’m also consuming dozens of ounces of water over the course of the day. But again, nothing new there.
When I finally got home and my feet were throbbing as I sat down to write this, I did get my FIRST craving for an ice cold IPA. It was a fantastic way to unwind, but oh well, maybe after the 30 Days. We’ll see.
Tomorrow’s another fantastic opportunity! I’ll be driving for Lyft for the majority of the day! See you then!
