Sometimes it feels like these whole30 days are going by rather slowly and yet then I look up and…we’re halfway through!
I am so proud of all of us and how great we are doing. No, the desire to eat onion rings or red beans and rice or ice cream hasn’t gone away, but we are loving the great food we are eating and how we feel eating it. I’ll tell you what, when our family says we’re going to do something, we do it. And we do it with style.
We’re spending more quality time together, we’re in the word, we’re sleeping better, we’re exercising, we’re feeling better, Jeremiah’s numbers are doing well, and Brandon’s tummy is quickly going down. We are so blessed to be where we are and beyond thankful for the season God has us in. Blessing after blessing has been poured on our undeserving heads these past few weeks and we are humbled and thankful for them. Some you know of, some we will share with you later.
The main blessing? The strengthening of our family. We have purposefully been spending quality time together and it’s been wonderful. We’ve been playing games, reading, cooking, cleaning and resting…together. If you are running around so busy that you only get a few precious minutes with your family at the end of the day, I urge you to see what can be moved around to remedy that immediately. It’s a beautiful thing how time spent with your family can do so much, just by being together. Try it, you’ll like it!
So how did our day 15 go? It was Whole30 approved, that’s for sure!
Breakfast was a casserole of eggs, steak and asparagus. We’re cutting back on Jeremiah’s egg consumption so he had a bowl of salmon and veggies.
We had a playdate with dear friends yesterday and had a potluck lunch while we were there. I brought asparagus and Amy made roasted chicken and steamed carrots. It was so good, especially since I didn’t have to cook it all!
Brandon surprised us with dinner last night at a local cafe right down the road from us. Sweet potato fries were a side option so we had a big plate as an appetizer. We also shared a salad with a delicious unsweetened blueberry vinaigrette. Dinner was grilled tuna for Jeremiah, a shared bun-less hamburger for Shiloh and Levi, and a shared enormous steak for Brandon and I. A very nice dinner form a sweet husband.
I hope your days are going just as well!
