Wow. Melissa and team were spot on when they suggested that days 10 and 11 were the hardest days. It hasn’t helped that it’s been raining, cold and windy here in Seattle the last couple of days, forcing us to be held up in the house. And to top things off, Charlie has been fighting a head cold. Ahhh, this too shall pass.
On to day 11. It was a struggle, I’m not going to lie. They days are starting to blend together, feeling a little bit like Ground Hog’s Day. Breakfast; eggs and potatoes, Lunch; some sort of protein salad, Dinner; whatever Sunbasket or Blue Apron has in store for us (actually these have been highlights of the week, they are really tasty and offer something different than what we normally do for dinner).
I slept fairly well last night but was a little nervous that I’d been summoned by Charlie at some point for help, as he wasn’t feeling well. Surprisingly, he slept mostly through the night.
He did stay home from school today so if you know Seattle and you know our grey gloomy days, combine that with a sick kiddo… Let’s just say cabin fever was happening here.
We pushed through and while it wasn’t one of my most productive days around town, I did manage to get a fair amount accomplished.
For breakfast, I enjoyed two fried eggs and hash browns. I’m starting to sound like a broken record. 🙂
Then for lunch, I put together a last minute soup for Charlie and me of the bone broth I made the other day, shredded chicken and steamed potatoes. I wish I had sauteed up some carrots and such but I figured Charlie wouldn’t eat them anyway and so I opted for a basic broth soup. Low and behold, he loved it! And so did I.
Late afternoon I did enjoy an Rx Bar as a snack to hold me over until dinner.
For dinner tonight, we took advantage of our Blue Apron meals. They are offering Whole30 compliant meals for the first eight weeks for the year. The one I made tonight was actually really tasty; Togarashi Chicken Lettuce Cups.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that tomorrow will turn the corner towards tiger blood and more energy.
