When you do a Whole30 the rest of your life kinda gets put on hold. At least as much as it can be put on hold. We have all these projects around the house that really need doing, but we decided that our health needed to be given priority at the moment so we are focusing on that. Today I got restless, as I so often do, about all these projects just sitting around stagnate. So I picked one and jumped in.
We bought some great handmade bunkbeds from a friend about 6 months ago. They’ve have been sitting in our garage in bunkbed limbo. We weren’t sure the girls were ready, and then they were. We couldn’t decided between staining them or painting them, and then we did decide. We couldn’t decide what color to paint them, and then we chose white. And then they sat, and sat, and sat. Today the babies went to sleep and I basically ran to Home Depot so I wouldn’t lose my nerve, interrogated the very nice gentleman in the paint department about the best way to do this, and came home with a gallon of paint, a roller, and a brush.
I’m hoping to have these done by Sunday. Cross your fingers. Maybe this will distract me through the next 4 days. Kraft also decided to mail order a hops plant. Hops, like what you use to brew beer. So while I was in the garage painting, Kraft was in the yard digging and planting. I think we may have acquired ADD in our older age.
- Egg Muffins – These take a decent amount of time to make, but they make 20 muffins. 20 muffins! And you can freeze some as it says in the directions. They were very tasty.
- 1/2 an Avocado
- Handful of Pecans
- 1/2 an Apple with Almond Butter
Have you watched Trevor Noah’s 2013 Comedy Special “African American“? You should, it’s on Netflix. In it he pokes fun at Oprah when she is giving things away and is like, “You get a Lexus, you get a Lexus, everyone gets a Lexus!” Well, that’s how I feel about these egg muffins. Everyone gets a muffin! I will only have to assemble breakfast for the next couple days and not make it. #awesomesauce
- Leftover Stuffed Pepper Stuffing
- Leftover Bacon Veggies
- 1/2 an Apple (I know, we’re obsessed with apples)
Dinner: (Not pictured, first I forgot to take a picture before I started eating so I asked Kraft to do it, but he forgot, too.)
- Round Steak with Leftover Chimichurri Sauce – I just cooked the steak in a pan and topped with the sauce. So good
- Leftover Broccoli Slaw
- Sweet and Salty Broccoli Salad
How We Felt:
Tired from the painting. But fine from the Whole30.
