Because I like to Share

Okay, so I made this tonight and it was so incredibly delicious that I felt the need to share.
I knew Paul would want hamburgers for dinner because that's what he likes and I decided that I didn't really feel like having a burger or a gardenburger. I had some portobellos in my fridge that I had forgotten that I bought. So I cleaned them, popped out the stem and stabbed them all over with a fork. Then I doused them with yoshida's teriyaki sauce and let them sit about an hour. I grilled them on the barbeque. Then I put them on a Dave's Killer bread bun (toasted on the barbeque) and topped it with a bit of goat cheese, avocado, tomato and some mixed greens. No mayo, no mustard, no fat, no meat. It was SO GOOD!!! Seriously try this!

As a side I chopped brussels sprouts into quarters, drizzled them with olive oil, salt and pepper, and then put them in a disposable baking pan and threw that on the barbeque with the mushrooms. They came out crunchy with a bit of the fire roasted flavor and were way delicious!

Dessert was chopped up peaches and a couple of apricot/plum/nectarine hybrids that I got at New Seasons with some whipped cream on them.

I ate so well today!

Round 2 Day 16

I wish this post had as much positive enthusiasm as the last, but it's been kind of a difficult week. I woke up this morning with a mild headache feeling like I had a hangover. I couldn't think straight and  just felt worn out. I put in for a sub for the morning and went back to bed. After some cold brew and Tylenol I forced myself to teach my afternoon classes, but I'm tired and still feel the pressure on my skull.

Yesterday I woke up in a rage. Rage over the grocery shopping I spent the ENTIRE weekend trying to take care of. Rage over the food I couldn't eat to calm the rage. Rage over how I can't control anyone but myself. Rage over the stupidly over-positive encouraging crap in the day-to-day book I've been using. Shut up book! I'm mad and I want to be mad! I don't want to be told how I can fix it! I just want to be mad!

These seem to be the monologues that keep going around and around in my head.

Round 2 - Day 1

Happy New Year! I am so relieved to see 2017 come to a close. It was a long, tough, satisfying year and I am happy to be done. I think the two things that were the most life changing last year were moving into our new house and the first Whole30 I completed.

It's been four months since I finished my first Whole30. I remember my delightful barista, Kristina, saying "It's so hard, but so worth it." And I couldn't describe it better. I have tried so many things to lose weight and keep it off and nothing has ever permeated my consciousness like this has. I think about what I'm eating basically always. I haven't gained any of the weight back that I lost even though I haven't considered myself on a diet since September. I am also hyper-aware of how foods affect me.

December was sort of a free-fall. We went to Disneyland and I made the conscious decision to enjoy myself. Disneyland is already a sugar wonderland most of the year, but add in the Christmas them…
