Tom and I got up at the crack of quarter till 2pm. We went to bed before 1am, we didn’t drink, I don’t know why we slept so late either, but God did it feel good to sleep in. This is why I need an alarm clock, because when left to my own devices, I will not use any of the devices because I’ll be sleeping. Once up, I made us a delicious green smoothie, and the day looked like it was going to go wonderfully that’s when I realized that I had no phone! After me having a meltdown and Tom making fun of me for it my phone was discovered. It’s currently an hour outside of London at a very nice cab drivers house. He said he’ll turn it into lost property when he gets into work so I should have my phone either at 10pm Monday night or 8am Monday morning. I can make it 24 hours without my phone…I can…I will…I MUST!
After I calmed down I began making a Lamb recipe out of The PPC. Once I was done prepping in and put it in the crockpot we realized it wouldn’t actually be done till 10pm. Tom wasn’t going to spend the night again, so I just put it in the refrigerator. We’ll have it on my last day of Paelo. TOMORROW!
Other than that there’s not too much drama to report we had eggs, bacon, and tomatoes for dinner. And then watched the first two Harry Potter movies back to back. I’m really trying to be better with time management. But I think a day of nothing is good for the soul too. I just need to make sure I don’t fall into a Netflix K-Hole on a Monday afternoon.
I did fall asleep watching Harry Potter, but only for a little bit, since giving up coffee I have a big crash in the early evening. I wonder if that’s going to stick or eventually fade. By the way, I’ve decided to stick with the whole no coffee thing, it’s only 15 days left, I can do this. Once I segue-way into Crazy Sexy Diet, her regime is more of a cleanse and she recommends to stay off caffeine.
Because we woke up late Tom was happy to just have green juice and eggs for the day, but at 9pm I was still pretty hungry. I had an apple with some almond butter. Still hungry, I had two leftover plantain pancakes. That didn’t help and they aren’t very good left over. Then I had some pineapple. Nope, didn’t help. Finally at midnight I ate some olives and went to bed. As I write it out it doesn’t seem like a lot of food but as i was grazing I felt like I was eating EVERYTHING! I would’ve made myself another meal, but I’ve pretty much run out of food till the next trip to the shop which will all be vegan. And I’ll be honest, I’m ready to give up a meat heavy diet and have some rice.
