Whole 30 - Day 22

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Thank you for your kind words about my blogs - I often feel like I am not worth taking other people's time for such trivial things. In the same time, I do read a lot of blogs and comment on most of them. That comes back to being your best friend heh? Treat yourself like you'd treat a friend.

My sister's (one of them! I got 2!) birthday is on the 29th and I volunteered to make the cake. I decided to do cupcakes, here's the result:

I used a store-bought mix and added color to the batter - I'm not super excited about the result, the color is too pale but it was the first time I did something like that. I'll add whipped frosting to the cupcake when I get to her place and sprinkled it with dark chocolat chunks. She'll think it's an ordinary cupcake until she bites into one! Oh =) That was a good test for my new lifestyle, I didn't taste the batter once and I didn't feel like eating one.

She's making dinner for us and she agreed to use a Paleo compliant marinade for the meat and she'll do a salad that I will dress with homemade mayonnaise instead of the usual dressing she uses. I bought a pomegranate-flavor sprinkling water to bring to the party and I was surprised to not see sugar as one of the ingredient on the list. Yes, it sports 19 g of sugar per 8 oz but no added-sugar, only the ones you find in the fruits. Still, 19 g is way over my daily allowance so I'll make sure to share the bottle =D

One of my colleague is on a sick leave and although it is sad for her, I might get a bit more work. That's good news! & the trafic this morning was very light, it took me 20-25 minutes as usual to get to work. No frustration.

I've been taking pictures of the psoriasis plaque on my knew cap for the last 10 days & it's getting better and better. I have to admit I thought it'd heal faster but progress is progress!

8 days left!

Keep on sparking xo

    So glad that the psoriasis is healing. Inflammation damage can take a long time to completely heal... dropping carbs even lower would likely help even more, but I think you are doing so well, you may not want to mess with that until you feel really ready to do so. You may also want to see if any other food might aggravating to you (strawberries? oranges? onions?). Baking for others, and not tasting is a HUGE victory sign. I'm so glad that your family is so supportive!

    Gal, I HAVE to admit after reading your blog last night it DID get me to thinking "Hmmm maybe this IS A GOOD idea for me" but, yeah we both know my eating habits. I DID though go and check it out. So though I likely won't do this, I am getting back into the Spark guidelines and not just on calories. I am working my way back to hitting my 4 categories. So my dearh friend, KEEP ON BLOGGING about this and when it's ovah PLEASE CONTINUE to blog daily. WE DO read them. We DO enjoy them. You are making such REMARKABLE Progress. I AM SO VERY, VERY PROUD OF YOU !!

    Hug's gal!

    Glad to hear you could be seeing more work. Great job resisting the cupcakes. It is amazing how whole30 helps you retrain your brain. I've been without sugar for almost 60 days. I gave my kids fruit snacks today and thought they smelled too sweet!

    What a great idea to have cupcakes that are decorated for a birthday! People can choose their favorite color and it is portion controlled. Perfect! emoticon
