Running Around Town on The Whole 30

I worked out with my trainer on Thursday night, like I do every Thursday night. We did legs and I think he actually took it easy on me because it wasn't that bad. {I probably shouldn't even put that out there though because now he's going to kill me during our next workout.} I definitely felt it the next morning though. I came home after my workout and made cashew pork with garlic and added avocado on top. I ate bell peppers on the side. Tater REALLY wanted some.

On Friday I was certain that I was going to be exhausted and need a nap at some point in the day. I was prepared to go home and sleep.

Breakfast was leftovers at my desk. Cashew pork with garlic and avocado on top. So good and extremely filling! I actually wasn't even hungry for lunch when 2 o'clock rolled around.

I made it through the day without a nap. I made a pizza and salad for dinner for Stephen and I ate some Trader Joe's Grass Fed Beef Sirloin Roast. I buy this stuff weekly, whether I'm on the Whole 30 or not. It's so convenient and the ingredients are only Grass Fed Beef Sirloin Roast, salt and pepper. It's delicious with eggs for breakfast too!

My friend, Suzie, came over bright and early on Saturday morning. She was at my door at 7am. We got in a couple miles around the nearby lake and then we went to the farmers market here in town. She ate mini donuts in front of me for breakfast. I only smelled them.

We discovered a new coffee shop in town called The Press Espresso. Locally owned by a husband and wife. The decor was very impressive and the coffee was delicious. They actually have a Thai coconut milk latte. I asked for no vanilla syrup and the owner told me, "We make our vanilla here." I said,"I'd love to try it but I'm doing the Whole 30." He said, "Oh! Got it!" He knew exactly what I was talking about. I'll definitely be going back there because I saw a drink I know my husband will love to try.

I had lunch with another friend of mine who was passing through town. We had lunch at Burger Lounge and I ordered a bunless burger. It was really good! We forgot to snap a photo. This is is something we do often because we're always having way too much fun together. 

I met up with my husband and my mother-in-law at the mall after that. We walked around and then they wanted to eat a snack. My mother-in-law got Hot Dog on a Stick. So I was tempted by donuts and Hot Dog on a Stick. Luckily I did not cave in. My husband wanted Mexican food for dinner so I ordered a side of carne asada and I threw it on top of a baked potato with avocado and bacon. It was really good! It would be really good with salsa, if you like salsa. I'm not a huge fan of it. 

Saturday was quite the productive day. My husband and I relaxed in the evening and watched two scary movies on Netflix. I highly recommend The Honeymoon.

Sunday morning was for running errands and grabbing groceries for the week. I like to get done before everyone else wakes up so I grabbed an RX Bar when I was heading out the door. We spent the afternoon working on some chores and I caught up on my planner. #priorities 

We had a birthday party to go to yesterday evening and I didn't eat one thing. We cooked dinner when we got home and watched one more scary movie - Hush. So good! My brother recommended it to us and now I need a back up cell phone. 

I hope ya'll have a great week!
