Whole30 NEW Day Five

Well, well, well. Here we are. The day on which I had to reset my challenge the first time around. Did I make it past this day? What if I told you our snack on the set of 9-1-1 was In-N-Out? Ask yourself this: what would you do?

[Yes, another late night of work means another day-late post. My apologies.]

Remember how I essentially bragged about my innate ability to eat the same type of food ad nauseam? Yeah, well this morning, while grilling my onions and jalapeños, I decided to change it up. Instead, I reheated some of my Whole30 Shepard’s Pie, two portions.

 

Portions

“One-quarter portion.” “No, thanks, Unkar Plutt, two portions.”

I simply threw the grilled vegetables on top of the delicious pie and mixed it all up together. YUM.

Maybe the hazelnuts were a bit much?

I left for work early to find a spot to continue work on Chapter 95 of My Cancer Story and found this great place in Santa Clarita called Undergrounds Coffeehouse. This shop is immaculate and ornate in a way that few establishments are. The bathroom alone was a work of art!

Sadly, I did not take a photo.

Then, I gobbled down a banana on the way to work.

When I got there, one of my first tasks was to get my First AD some food (not my usual type of task, but I’ll do anything because I love this job).

I got myself a hamburger patty with tomatoes, onions, and mustard with a side of watermelon.

I know, fancy.

I love Limelight Catering.

 

Hours later, the ultimate test came wafting into my nostrils. Yes, the dreaded In-N-Out. I’ve been on other sets before where this southwestern staple had been available, and I remember devouring well over my fair share of fast food in the past.

This time, I stayed far away from the food. That was until my First AD wanted a Protein-style* (I’m sensing a pattern). The burgers they ordered didn’t have any with lettuce wraps, and so, it was up to me to get them. I grabbed some gloves and romaine lettuce leaves from catering and came back with four gloves and four leaves. As I unmade a burger, I glanced at the french fries longingly. To be honest, the initial thrill of In-N-Out for me died almost a year ago, but even so, I contemplated grabbing even one fry for my watering mouth.

NO! I cannot slip now! I’m doing great so far!

I delivered my boss’ burger and ate the two remaining leaves of lettuce begrudgingly. Man, the lettuce was sweet. Mmm, ok, craving over.

After everyone else was content, I grew hungry. I had some turkey and mustard, then an orange. WHOA! Talk about sweet! This orange was too much. I finished it, but I was taken aback by my taste receptors readjusting to the lack of sugar in my system.

Once we wrapped (comparatively earlier than usual), I grabbed some last-minute lunch because I was starving: steak, roasted garlic potatoes, and broccoli and cauliflower with some succulent watermelon.

Then, I drove a few hours for Lyft and got home around 3:30 AM. Yippee!

That’s it for today! See you tomorrow (which will post an hour from this).

*Protein-style is a burger (made in any way) without a bun.


Jamie writes about himself a lot. Yeah, he knows that can be irritating, but he hopes that people can learn from his mistakes, like when he had cancer and waited too long to chase his dream. Learn more about his battle with Leukemia (AML) in his on-going first draft of his book here.
