The good news is I finished the last of the open bottle of wine.

May be having a hangover in the morning.

Great way to start Whole 30, right?

Whole 30 Week 1 haul:

Costco:
Cucumbers
Lemons
Cauliflower
Almond butter
Organic chicken thighs (boneless & skinless)
Spinach
Kale
Tomatoes
Watermelon
Apples
Almonds
Eggs
Strawberries
Blueberries
Pineapple
Garlic
Asparagus
Squash
Bell peppers
Broccoli


Whole Foods:
Roasted tomato salsa
Sweet potatoes
Prosciutto
Coconut milk
Larabars *
Mint

I spent about $110 for all of these groceries. I was able to get so much at Costco because I split it with my mom. No way could I eat all those veggies in a week. There are also things that I won’t have to buy every week like almond butter or the almonds. Spending $100 a week for me for food is actually a really good since I eat out a lot for lunch.

I got the Larabars for whenever I’m craving a snack. I chose ones that didn’t have peanuts or sugar added to them. I also have some salmon that I’ll use for a couple of dinners and canned chicken that I’ll utilize for lunches.

I may have to stop by Trader Joe’s for a couple of things but I’m pretty much set for the week. I’m glad that I have tomorrow off so I can prep some meals.

I also signed up for the Whole 30 Daily. It’s $15 and you get an email every day which coincides to whatever Whole 30 day you are in. I figured it couldn’t help to get the added support/motivation/advice.

What are some meals you guys will be cooking this week? I know that for sure I’ll be making prosciutto egg cups for breakfast.

My meals will pretty much be the same all week:

Breakfast: 3 eggs with mushrooms, peppers, and Franks Hot Sauce. Half an avocado. Tea with almond milk. May dice in some sweet potato once in a while.

Lunch: huge azz salad with protein (chicken or tuna) and oil/vinegar dressing

Dinner: will be a choice of the following:
- spaghetti with zucchini noodles
- sausage, sauerkraut, grilled veggies
- taco meat on a salad
- whatever Whole 30 recipes John wants to try

Just a visit to our friendly neighborhood active volcano. Damm clouds covered the top of the mountain.   Hard to believe it’s been 33 years since the erruption!

One bottle of sulfite-free wine that has to be finished before the start of Whole30 on Monday.

I accept the challenge.

Came back from errands and decided to make bananna bread and zucchini bread while listening to Prarie Home Companion on the radio. The girls are playing and John is working on his sprinkler system for the yard.

Just a peaceful Saturday afternoon at the house.

Our Saturday morning trip to the Farmer’s Market was graced by kids in cosplay for Kumericon (Japanese anime convention). Nothing funnier than looking at bad costumes near organic produce. Only happens once a year so the people watching is just fabulous!

In the first pic, “Merida” is working on her photoshoot in the traffic circle. As one would do.

Woke up to my lowest weight this year!

thespartanhusband:

Starting wt in July = 216
Weight as of this morning = 190.6

Starting the whole 30 on Monday too, so more weight should be coming off quickly!

So proud of John!!!
