Another slow day off means another day of food freedom!
Is it weird of me to actually miss my fried eggs? After driving some early morning Lyft, I rectified that longing by making two fried eggs with grilled onions and jalapeños with potatoes.
After breakfast, I went to the gym and walked to Groundwork Coffee to get some much-needed writing done.
About an hour later, I received a call from my co-worker that my check was available. I hopped in my car, threw on destination mode for Lyft, and made my way to the Mid-Wilshire area.
It was about then that I began to get that old familiar feeling. I still can’t determine what causes it, but I get pressure behind my eyes, sometimes in the form of a twitch, then my brain gets foggy, and it feels like I’m drunk, not fully in control of my body. I had hoped that this diet would be helping prevent such a thing, but it’s still not going away. Maybe I need to do the Whole30 longer. Or maybe it’s something out of my control.
When I got home, I debated going to watch a movie at the theaters, but I opted to instead write some more. Yay for progress! I ate first and had my old “classic” Whole30 Sloppy Joes, and some more of that leftover salad mix.
I rounded out the day with some pickles and goji berries. Wait, am I pregnant?! And I finally got around to watching the Maine film, Bluebird. This was a pretty damn good dramatic film about a boy who falls into a coma on a school bus in the dead of winter in Millinocket and the fallout surrounding the bus driver who missed him on her end-of-day check.
And that’s today! I ate some more, got to pay some bills, go to the gym, and watch a movie shot in Maine! Not a bad day. Tomorrow, I work on 9-1-1 again! Love it.
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.
