Yeah, OK, I got excited a little too early.
Bacon without sugar is just Samgyeopsal.
Nothing to write home about.
But I did eat 2 helpings.
And that egg fried in the bacon grease (I can't believe it is legal to do that!) was heavenly.
Today I'm feeling better; when I really started thinking about it I started wondering why this Whole30 thing is SO much easier for Hubby than it is for me. I eat healthier than he does on a normal day, so it should be harder on him.... anyway, my mind started going and going and going and then it hit me. I have to put this in perspective - I am doing this for ONLY 30 days (maybe longer). If I can live through deployment after deployment where I am missing the love of my life for 12-15 months at a time while he is being shot at and my stress level is higher than any normal preson's stress level should ever be then I can live through 30 days of not eating my favorite foods. Hubby does it for a YEAR (or more) at a time each time he is deployed. I think about all the cans of mackerel & packages of rice I would send him....that would be his dinner for weeks/months at a time. He has been totally food deprived for years at a time! Can you imagine eating MRE's on a regular basis? GROSS!! And here I am whining about not having a cupcake. What is wrong with me?! Suck it up Trish. It's just food. You eat to live, not live to eat.
So anyway...my new outlook is to forget about those things that are making me grumpy. Be happy and move on. Everything we do is a choice and no one is FORCING me to do this. I'm doing to become healthier, stronger and to live longer with my memory intact. I just have to remember that! (See the irony..? hehehe..)
So moving on:
Lunch: I took my camera, but my card was in my computer so it did me NO GOOD.
Today I went out to lunch with friends to my favorite all you can eat Korea Buffet. I was so good that I even put my meat at the top so none of the yummy juices from their marinated meat would run into my non marinated meat.
It was pretty easy at lunch today.
OH CHECK it out; I found an old picture from the place, NO I DID NOT DRINK THE CASS....this is an old picture. But check out the Samgyeopsal (uncured, no sugar bacon) on the right side...yes, I had it AGAIN for lunch. o)
Oh, and I broke my blender today while making another one of the 'ice cream smoothies' from yesterday. I'm crushed. Going to the PX to see if they have the one I want, if not I am going to have to wait 5-7 days to get another blender..... ah the life of the Whole30 on the peninsula....
