Whole30: Day 18

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with salsa
My other favourite breakfast. I would eat this every day. It's always amazing.

Lunch: Leftover California Pot Roast, cauliflower, fruit
This worked really well as leftovers. It didn't have any texture problems and the flavor was good. This is another recipe that we'll keep. It's hard to find recipes for chunks of beef that we actually like. We're not huge beef lovers at this point, although it's growing on me more and more, but a large roast can be a very economical cut of meat. So having a few recipes like this in our files will be really helpful.

Supper: Hot dogs, sauerkraut, salad, a cup of turkey broth
Hot dogs and sauerkraut. One of the most satisfying and simple meals you could ever eat. We bought Applegate beef dogs and they were soooo good. I think we'll probably continue to get them instead of our normal Ballpark Beef Franks. The Applegate ones were even better and don't have any funny ingredients! But for dinner, Justin grilled the dogs and we sliced them up and mixed them into the bowl of sauerkraut. I like to eat mine plain and Justin likes to add mustard to his. Either way you go, it's delicious!

Snack: turkey jerky, a grapefruit, a couple of baked apple rings, a little bit of steamed cauliflower
I was pretty hungry by about 10pm. We had had an early supper, closer to 5pm, so it had been several hours since I had eaten. This was really filling. Also, I now apparently love grapefruit. I bought 15lbs earlier in the week.

I felt fine all day again. I kept busy in the morning running errands and then I worked on projects in the afternoon. No headache at all, or at least not one that I noticed anyway. Just felt fine. Hungry in the morning and afternoon like normal. But nothing terrible. It was just another normal day

This was the day. It was finally here. What was here? Why, spring of course! You may say that the first day of springs was weeks ago but I disagree. It's not truly spring until I can go lay out and work on my tan. And Friday, April 5th was that day.

I did not actually wear my bikini. I just wore jeans and a tan top (Don't ask me. My legs were cold!). But it was wonderful. About 51* and sunny as all get out. And the best part? I went out at the peak times for about 20 minutes a side and didn't even get the slightest bit pink! This is great news and something I've been looking forward to for a long time. I can't wait to spend lots of time outside this summer and get super tan.

I did spend most of my day in slightly more useful of a fashion than laying out unfortunately. For those of you who have never changed the belt in a vacuum cleaner, just know that it's hard. Very, very hard. As in brace my feet against the vacuum and pull with both hands hard. But it works great now and the squeal is gone. So I guess it was worth it!

Not the same size. At all.

And seriously, who doesn't love sitting in a sunbeam? Pure bliss. It was a good day.
