Eat By Design: Day 11

Another day bites the dust!

Day 11... I am doing pretty good!  Today was a good day!  We did not sleep in, Avery was up EARLY!!  

I didn't make it to Crossfit today.  I was contemplating not going because we had stuff to do (my mom is coming this evening) and I wanted to get a jump start on the day.  The I looked at the WOD (workout of the day) and decided I really didn't want to go.  Terrible, I know, but I guess we will all have those days.  I am feeling the aftermath of yesterdays workout, so a rest day isn't underserved!!

We did have a busy day.  We ate (very important), survived Sunday at Costco, a trip to Superstore, cleaned the house, cooked dinner, and made roasted red pepper & butternut squash soup for lunch this week!  Throughout all of this the only time Avery napped was on the drive from Costco to Superstore (plus about 10 minutes in the store). That is not a very long nap for a little girl, and she is STILL going!!

I wore my Nike Fuel band for most of the day.  So far I have earned 4160 fuel points, burned 1149 calories, and taken 6627 steps.  Not sure f this is good, because I have nothing to compare it to, but I suppose over the next few weeks I will get a grasp of what is good and what's not.

SOOOOO What did I eat today?
Breakfast - coffee 
Brunch - bacon and salsa/banana pepper scramble
Dinner - stir fried carrots, parsnips, cauliflower, broccoli, and mushrooms with chicken (and bacon at my husbands request)
Treats - red wine ;-)  

How Do I Feel?
Despite a rough start to the day I feel pretty good (physically). I don't feel bloated.  I don't feel unnecessarily tired.  I'm not missing eating all the foods I am eliminating from my diet... except when they are right in my face like Ave's croissant today. LOL.  Honestly though, I feel good. 

I feel a little hopeless in the pursuit of a clean house though.  I have cleaned my kitchen SEVERAL times today and it is still a mess.  I cannot wait to have more space....and a dishwasher!!  I am so tired of washing dishes.  So are my hands!!

My Biggest Challenge
Once again my challenge was not the diet.  That seems to be the easy part of my life.  Today it was holding back from punching the lady in front of us in the checkout line at Costco.  She gave use the DIRTIEST look when Avery screamed. Avery was trying to fasten/unfasten the safety belt on the spare seat.  She screams when she gets frustrated.  She is a baby, she is not quite 18months old.  She doesn't always have the words she needs, she is stubborn and high strung. Give us a break!  I hate the condescending, dirty, control your child, your a terrible parent dirty looks that you get from people who obviously don't have children! Bah!  Don't give a parent a dirty look until you spend a day in their shoes!!  That's my rant for the day!

Until Tomorrow!!

  1. WOW-great changes a third of the way in-awesome again, Joanna! BTW....I really look forward to reading your daily post! And don't worry about the looks...I got similar looks when Tyson had a melt down at Savon on Friday. Not everyone understands, but I used this as an opportunity to practice my ongoing patience of being a mommy to a toddler, and zone everyone else out. Don't take it personally:)
