I fudged a bit on my Whole30/Paleo plan again today.
Remember how I (and 8,000 other people on Pinterest) said that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail? Yeah, well that happened this morning.
I totally forgot that I was supposed to get eggs on my way home yesterday, so I had a whole one egg in my fridge this morning. And I totally spaced on making coffee until about 7:10, and since I have to be at work at 7:25 and did not have time to French-press a pot, I decided I would just head to Bruegger's, my favorite coffee spot in town -- that just so happens to be three blocks from my house.
Well, since I was out of eggs and going to Bruegger's for coffee anyway, I decided I'd just grab a bagel. I did get it cut "skinny" so that it was really only about three-fourths of a normal bagel, but I did get it with cream cheese.
It was great.
Interestingly, yesterday and today I didn't stick to a totally "clean" diet, and yesterday and today I didn't have crazy allergic reactions.
It's super interesting, but it's also really, really frustrating. I'm trying to treat my body the best that it can be treated, but when I do so, I get crazy-sick, crazy-allergic.
I guess I won't totally attribute the allergies to clean-eating quite yet and will wait for the allergist's official diagnosis, but it's a frustrating, to say the least.
In other news, today was an absolutely beautiful day. At tennis practice after school, I wore a tank-top and my running capris -- and actually played a little tennis with the girls! I am looking forward to playing more, as it's really fun and a good, easy workout. I am absolutely terrible right now, but I think I could actually be pretty good if I practiced.
After practice, I headed home and started cleaning my apartment. I have been so disgusted by how messy it's gotten lately due to me simply not being home to clean it, so I spent several hours scrubbing the toilet, cleaning the litter-box room, organizing summer/winter clothes and shoes, dusting ceiling fans, and more.
I took a mini-break to head to a team dinner for tennis. It was a really nice little get-together, and I played a few games of Bananagrams (my favorite) with the hostess, her mother, and one of my favorite girls, a student from Kazakhstan.
So, tonight was spent cleaning and hanging out with high-school students. I am so cool.
Like I said, I had a skinny everything bagel with light garden veggie cream cheese -- and a salted caramel coffee. It was all so good and so easy. I also didn't think that was enough carbs, so I ate a banana, too.
Lunch: I didn't do a great job for lunch. I ate a bite of my Moroccan Meatballs and just couldn't eat anymore. I don't know what my deal with meat has been lately, but I just can't do it. So instead, I ate more carbs: yet another banana and some all-natural fruit snacks.
Snack: I ate a Larabar before tennis practice.
Dinner: At the tennis potluck, I had a very small portion of pulled pork with sriracha sauce, cole slaw, and pineapple. I'm sure there were some non-compliant ingredients in there, but oh well. I'm going to log off shortly and watch Game of Thrones (if I don't fall asleep), and I may eat an apple with almond butter since I'm a bit hungry and will likely head out on a long run early in the morning. We'll see.
I hope y'all had an amazing Friday night and are not super jealous of my shenanigans!
What are your plans for the weekend?
