My oh my. I haven't done anything yet but think about how long this week has been already. I feel like once I turn that corner on the Whole 30 the door is going to open. Please oh please let that door open tomorrow.
I'm still struggling with afternoon headaches, although not so crushing. And boy oh boy was I still crabby today. It's Day 9 people. I feel like I deserve sunshine and rainbows not crabby thunder clouds. I'm covering at work... all week, and I don't even have the brain power to do what I'm really supposed to do. Like my job. That makes me crabby too. (But it could be because I'm crabby anyhow.)
And I'm extra crabby because I don't have the week one debloat like I did the first time I did the Whole 30. I think the grains had me super stay puffed, so I really noticed the difference when I cut them out. But being gluten free for over a year now I feel like I'm less puffy all of the time. I should be thankful for that, but right now it just makes me crabby.
And the stuffiness that encouraged me to tackle the Whole 30 in the first place is still hanging on. I can't remember the last time I was able to breathe freely. I've been stuffy since well before the holidays. I thought perhaps it was dairy related, but I can guarantee I haven't had any dairy in the last nine days. I keep googling my medicines to see if there is hidden gluten in anything I have been taking. Please oh please, I just want air in my lungs. *sigh*
The highlight of today is definitely my sweet and sour chicken.
This is the recipe I started with from Fast Paleo. I eliminated the honey, but ended up adding extra pineapple juice to compensate. It was pretty delightful over a bed of cauliflower rice. It's actually making my mouth water just looking at the picture. I ended up eating all the chicken and leaving some of the sauce with the intention of cooking another chicken breast tomorrow to top with sauce.
Until then, I probably need sleep.
