Whole 30 Day 6

Another awesome day with beautiful weather!  It was unseasonably warm today and we took nearly full advantage.  At 9:15 this morning, we got out the door to head to the park.  Of course, first we had to put air in the bike tires and raise James' seat.  Then we spent the morning at the park, playing soccer, playing basketball, and the kids poked around in a puddle for a while.  A couple of our neighbors met us there which was nice too.  At 11 we hurried home to change clothes and pack up for the rest of the day.  It was hard to pull the kids away from just playing with their friends.  But Carolyn had soccer at 11:45 and 12:30, then service buddies at the library at 2:30.  In between we had a picnic at the park and the kids played a bit.  James stayed at the park until 3:15.  It was so wonderful to be outside in the fresh air.  I am hoping this leads to great sleep tonight.  We finished the day with Carolyn singing in the children's choir for the 5pm mass tonight so bedtime is a bit late.  Fingers crossed!

Food was a little challenging for lunch today, so I chose just go on the lighter side.

Breakfast - 4 eggs fried in coconut oil, orange
Snack - Banana
Lunch - cashews, brazil nuts, 2 clementines
Dinner - pork chop, carrots dipped in guacamole

Almost completed a full week!  Tomorrow is a laid back day so staying on track should be pretty easy.  The first week of something new is supposed to be the hardest, right?  I did realize today that when it comes to playing with the kids, I am incredibly out of shape.  Carolyn is pretty fast on the basketball court so I need to get back to regular exercise so I can keep up.  Hopefully this change in diet will reset my body and I can lose weight will regaining some strength as the year goes on.
