Whole30-Day 4 (With Day 3 Blurb)

Day 4 of Whole30 and...ya know, I thought I was tired yesterday but that was NOTHING compared to today. I fell asleep during a conversation with my husband. And then while helping the kids color (which mostly consists of me guarding the crayons. After that one incidence they are only allowed two colors out at a time. I'm still finding marks on the walls.) And I totally missed breakfast, mostly because I didn't have the energy to actually cook and when Hubby asked what he could make me all I could do was stare at him and try to remember the names for different food items. Honestly, I didn't have the energy to be hungry...does that make ANY sense?

Hubs let me crash on the couch for an hour which helped. Unfortunately today was his only day off this week so we had a chore list a mile long. I finally forced myself off the couch to order several yards of mulch-aha! Now I HAVE to do something.

That would be three yards of walk on bark, also called hog fuel. Great for mud control, which is good since our yard and gardens are basically mud pits right now.

Three yards of mulch is a lot of mulch. Lots and lots and lots of wheelbarrow loads. Somewhere around the half-way mark I begged Hubby to come out and help and finally we got it all spread out. Take that sticky, Pacific Northwest mostly-clay mud!! By then it was getting late so all our other chores had to wait.

Of course it had to be approved by the Poultry Department.
Day 3 Recap:
Breakfast: Leftover chicken soup. Sadly the last, I need to make more now.
Lunch: Leftover roast chicken breast with green salad
Dinner: Three slices pork roast with sauteed cabbage and the veggies from the roast (onions, carrots, and apples)
Snacks: Handful of baby carrots, a green apple

Day 4:
Breakfast: a carrot stick and two oranges (spread out over 3 hours...I was REALLY out of it)
Lunch: Leftover chicken breast sliced and dipped in mustard
Dinner: Tuna salad (canned tuna, jalapenos, apple juice sweetened dried cranberries, mustard, and...*sigh* two tablespoons of Best Foods mayo. I was on auto-pilot and had it mixed before I remembered Best Foods is a no-no) dumped over a bed of green salad.
Snack: a green apple

First thing tomorrow I'm making a batch of homemade mayo.
