My Whole30 - Day 3

8/04/2012 *Sara-Marie* 1 Comments

I have to admit that Day 3 had a couple of challenging moments. First off, it was the first time I started to think about bad food. Thoughts of waffle fries and onion rings kept flashing through my head. It was weird.

Thankfully, I still managed to stay on plan the whole day.


9:30am: enjoyed another fruit, nut, and coconut milk bowl - today with pecans. Also half a cup of coffee.

noticing a pattern?
12:30pm: using some of the left over veggies from the day before, I made a serious egg scramble with avocado and fresh cilantro. So filling.

mucho delicious veggies!
After I finished up with work, we decided to head down to the beach and have dinner with family friends. I have to be honest that I was getting a little nervous because I wouldn't have control over what was being served for dinner. I remained hopeful that I would have the willpower to resist any temptations. We did pack the cooler with good snacks so at least I had those! On the drive down, I munched on some delicious red grapes and had a plum during the time we were at the beach.

The beach was beautiful and the water was very refreshing! (read: stinkin' cold!)

We walked back to the wonderful beach house we were having dinner at and washed up in the outside shower. (which was really cool by the way!)

Our lovely hostess put out a beautiful spread of chips and salsa, pita bread and hummus, artichokes, feta cheese and olives. I would have LOVED every bit of it 3 days ago. But the safest thing I could eat were the artichokes so I had a couple of those and kept my eyes off the platter. Momma Pops even took one for the team by eating the feta cheese cubes before I came to the plate. Thanks Momma. Cheese is definitely one of my weaknesses.

For dinner, there was a large salad (score!), baked potato, green beans and steak. Perfect! I could make a great plate - minus the potato. I was very excited.

Instead of using the salad dressings that were put out, I scouted out some EVOO and added a little bit to my salad and some salt & pepper. One bite into the green beans and I realized they were cooked in butter. It was a delicious bite, but unfortunately I had to stop eating them. The steak was great but again I got concerned about the potential sugars in the marinade. I still ate the steak because it was simply out of my control and I was H-U-N-G-R-Y.

After heading back to the beach to view the craziest red moon, we made our way back to the Pops residence.
Check out the reflection on the water...this picture doesn't do it any justice. It was really amazing and kinda spooky.
On the drive home, the Pops family decided to stop at Dairy Queen. Wow, endless night of challenges, huh?

I quietly stood in the car while Mark gathered everyone's ice cream orders. Mark was ever so kind to bring me two plums out of the cooler so I could also have a sweet treat. Thank you baby! You've redeemed yourself from your Day 1 incident! ;)

Believe it or not, I didn't feel too bad about missing the ice cream. I didn't really want any and I didn't find it too hard to resist. Go me. After all, you can't beat indulging in nature's candy!

Just keep telling yourself that, just keep telling yourself that.
