Woke up to pouring rain so the dog and I postponed our early morning trip outside. By 9am it was still pouring so off we went anyway. Put on my gardening muck shoes and huddled under the golf umbrella in a feeble attempt to keep from getting soaking wet. Headed for the tree-covered trail but even that didn't offer any protection. All those obedience classes and various certifications paid off as Riley heeled and stayed (mostly) dry under the umbrella. He's still a bit damp and it's time to go out again. There are big blobs of yellow and orange on the doppler so we're heading out before we risk drowning.
Fell off the Whole30 wagon yesterday. Was it that bit of (delicious) cake at the shower?? or simply not being prepared for a day filled with activities that did not involve a trip to the grocery store?? I am back on the plan today where I will remain until camp next weekend.
Food: eggs, ham, blueberries, watermelon, hamburger, baked potato, green salad with peppers, carrots etc.
Exercise: walking, walking, walking!

Today is technically day 15 of Whole30. I've been "reporting" the day after I completed it (which is probably as confusing to you as it is to me!) so this blog covers days 12,13, and 14!
Food: pretty much same ol' same ol'. I haven't had the food prep mojo goin' for quite a while. Definitely tough when you're trying to eat whole foods. Luckily, my local grocery store (Wegmans) has a variety of pre-cooked meals which are both tasty, affordable, healthy, and... ta da... pre-cooked! I've been indulging... plain grilled chicken breast or grilled chicken/bacon/pineapple on skewer, mixed roasted vegetables, and either cauliflower or green beans. Rainier cherries, watermelon, scrambled eggs with Canadian bacon and onion and cashews round out the menu.
Exercise: daily walking consists of two 20+ min. walks with the dog at a relatively good medium pace. Definitely need to boost this category!
Still feeling good and I slept like a rock last night. I'm pretty sure I woke up in the same position I feel asleep in and that hasn't happened in a verrrrrrrrrrrry long time.
Tomorrow's challenge: wedding shower. I RSVP'd for a Cobb Salad with Balsamic dressing. So far, so good. But my best friend (the MOG) is hostessing and she special ordered a very special cake which she says is "to die for." I just might have to... at least 1 or 2 bites. Pre-planned and permission granted.

This morning's scenario: my dog and I are sitting outside enjoying the shade and a slight breeze; the morning newspaper; coffee; short walk done. As the day heats up and the sunshine edges toward my shady spot, today's major exercise will be mowing the lawn, a quick shower, then music rehearsal. Am singing in a quartet this weekend and we have yet to all sing together. Oh wait - the fourth won't join us until tomorrow night's rehearsal. And I'm still on the piano doing the accompanying. Oh well - I'm sure it will all come together.
Completed: day 11
Food: chicken, roasted veggies, cauliflower, watermelon, Ranier cherries, sweet potato chips
Exercise: walking. As you can tell, the length of our walks is very dependent on the heat/humidity. I have become a real wimp this summer. I'm sweating more than I recall even at a low activity level. Will guess it's age???
100% compliant or no?? I picked up a couple of Larrabars this weekend for those emergency snacks. Unfortunately I also picked up another "fruit and nut" bar they make without reading the teeny tiny print. Once I got my glasses on (and after I ate it) I realized it had pea protein and rice syrup in it. I also indulged in some Terra Sweet Potato chips yesterday. They are 100& sweet potato but I don't think the oils used are compliant. Plus I ate too many.
Still feeling good.
