it's the little things in life

twenty year old canadian girl whom doesn't really know what she is doing - trying to get it together and figure herself out.

jeff has visits every two weekends with his son. saturday 12-7 & sunday 10-2. its a 2 & a half hour drive. 

which means hes gota be out of here tomorrow at 730 am. but im REALLY loving sunday morning grocery trips so i just agreed to getting up at 6 to go do groceries at walmart. if i dont fall asleep in walmart, i will either come home and pass the fack out or just go for a walk or bike ride right away so that way i can be lazy all day after!

currently just taking over the counter but i was using it for like 3 weeks and it was working perfectly! and then this week i barely took it because i was eating so healthy i didn’t feel heartburn at all. but then i ate shitty food twice in past 36 hours and it came back. i mean…

thanks! ill definitely mention it to my doctor if it still acts up by the time i go home! im hoping if i just eat healthy that’ll be enough seeing as it worked all week !

literally ate junk food twice in the past 36 hours and i feel like complete shit.

like heartburn despise taking heartburn medication (which i didn’t have to take once all week while eating healthy), just bleh and heavy.

so yes, i’m not going whole30 but i do plan to stick to healthy eating because i do not like feeling this way. i did a bit of research today as to which kind of diet would work best for me. in all honesty, i would LOVE to go raw till 4 but i feel like i would need to start slowly eating more raw foods before jumping into that. so instead, my plan is to simply eat whole30 70% of the time and 30% of the time, add in brown rice and quinoa. i’m still staying away from all junk food and dairy. 

so this week on the dinner menu i have:

  • monday: cabbage rolls with mashed potatoes (which i plan on making without milk)
  • tuesday: shawarma chicken with grilled onions and lebanese-inspired potatoes
  • wednesday: asparagus & pepper steak stir fry
  • thursday: tacos (jeff will have tacos, i will have taco meat) with corn and mexican brown rice
  • friday: chicken vietnamese noodle bowls with broccoli slaw

i’m going to get eggs for breakfast (in case i want eggs or to make banana/egg pancakes) and then i plan on buying a bunch of frozen fruit to have in smoothies.

i plan on mostly having leftovers for lunch, otherwise i do plan on having quinoa salad (quinoa, edamame, corn) and/or having frozen broccoli (obviously steamed) with leftovers.

spiritualinspiration:

Keep me as the apple of your eye… Psalm 17:8, NIV.

In this day and age, people are considered to be important for so many different reasons—titles, position, possessions, where you go, what you drive. But God’s value system is very different from the value system of the world. God cherishes and values you so much simply because He made you. You are His beloved creation—the apple of His eye; the center of His world!

If you’ve ever thought that God has too many other important things on His plate to be concerned with you and your life, know this today—you are God’s number one priority. And, there’s nothing you can do to be more important or less important to Him. He values you today, and your value will never change. You are significant. Your life is significant. The things that concern you, concern God. He carefully watches over every detail of your life, and there is nothing too big or too small for His attention.

Today, find peace and security in God’s love for you. Don’t be afraid to take your concerns and cares to Him. He loves it when you come to Him, and He’s ready to receive you with open arms because you are the apple of His eye!

friday

had breakfast

  • worked out (went for a bike ride & did some arm exercices)
  • currently eating lunch
  • just putting on The Fault in Our Stars (getting prepared to cry i’m sure)

the rest of my day looks like this:

  • do some dishes
  • tidy up the living room
  • cuddle up on the couch maybe watch dateline tonight

changed my mind

this whole30 is definitely something i hope to complete in the near future but unfortunately i think for the current moment, it isn’t realistic. i have to make sure i can be in an environment where there are no temptations which is not the case right now. that being said, i do plan on mostly sticking to the guidelines. no dairy, no sugar and no breads, pastas or white rice. i will though, allow myself to eat brown rice twice a week and add in corn or beans.

breakfast: two mini russet potatoes diced & sprinkled with pepper & steak seasoning. two eggs over easy and 4 slices of turkey bacon. tiny tea.
workout: went for two different bike rides. they were short and sweet but still better than nothing! tomorrow i want to have a great workout though. (literally bought this piece of shit bike off the side of the road but it works great)
late lunch: chicken, carrot & celery soup!
snack: apple
dinner: chicken (seasoned with garlic, red pepper flakes and soul seasoning) & peppers cooked in 1/2 tsp coconut oil. didn’t eat everything pictured.
i was still hungry so i just had 2 eggs scrambled with 3 turkey franks.
IM DONE FOR THE DAY.
today was fairly easy. woke up late so that completely threw me off for the day but all in all, not bad!
