Life Lately :: That time I couldn't stop obsessing over food.

My pictures from April are semi-pathetic.  I honestly haven't done much aside from prep and eat Whole 30-style, work out, and chill with D.  Thrilling I know, but if you know anything about Whole 30 then you're aware that eating out/socializing is next to impossible.  It's also a rarity to be able to get so much chill time with D too.  

Today will be day 13 of my Whole 30, and honestly I'm ready for it to be over.  I'm getting bored, and I'm really missing alcohol cheese alcohol.  I'm ready for a girls night with Justyn.  I know I can push through...and I'm even speculating a very special reward for myself when it's all said and done.

Oh and then there's The Walking Dead.  I've blasted through 3 seasons in about two weeks?  And that's my life lately.

 [Layered up, you know when it was in the 50s which suddenly turning into mf'ing 80s!]

 [Dear goodness this is Whole 30 candy!]

 [Homemade Larabar balls!  Crazy easy. I modified this recipe via Mandi]
[The best snail mail ever from Sarah]

 [The BEST homemade salsa!  Recipe to come soon...]

 [I really, really miss Mexican food, so cucumbers dipped in salsa will have to do for now]

 [Another delicious substitute for tortilla chips?  Unsweetened banana chips (I can only find them at Whole Foods so far).  They absolutely taste nothing like bananas and are crunchy and perfect for dipping]

 ["Date night" consisted of staining the deck...which ended up uneven.  Ugh...homeowning.]

Linking up with these lovelies!

way to go, sticking with the whole 30. You've managed to find some great substitutes for foods that you're missing, that's awesome!

Ashley said...

so what exactly is this whole 30? I've been seeing you talk about it..and I need to actually look it up.

The weather...I know right?? it was in the 40s one day and in the 80s the next!

Cute pic of you. And staining decks is hell, right? I hate staining anything. It never seems to come out even.

Larabar balls?! I need to make those! i'm obsessed with larabars! Whole 30 definitely isn't easy but you can do it!!


Melissa said...

Ah! You're a trooper! Stick with it! I don't think I could give up all those things for a whole month (alcohol would be my weakness too). Good luck!
