After viewing these photos I realized I wasn't happy with the shoes and so I switched to my cognac loafers before going out to do the grocery shopping... because you know those retail grocer fashion critics can be tough. haha
Work has been a little more demanding than usual as we're going through some changes. I chose to wear something really comfortable and easy for Friday's work day. Plus wearing these earrings (that I bought in a little shop last July on our anniversary getaway) makes me feel good and reminds me of a special time shared with hubby. We had some beautiful sunshine today and about 60 degrees which was marvelous! I wish it would be nice for the weekend, but I fear rain is on the way again. I did see a dogwood tree in full white blossoms already on my way to work this morning though...so I know spring is near.
I wish I had these Banana Republic trousers in a few more colors. They are just about as comfy as pajama bottoms. I really like these sweaters too...and do have a collection of colors of these in similar styles. And my purse...it's the first time I've used it. Love it! On the other side it has a red stripe. I should have turned it the other way so you could see. I'll just hold you in suspense. haha

Whole 30 Day 14 Dinner: 1/2 lg sweet potato w/ghee topped w/leftover beef roast, diced pineapple/banana
I've been a little more tied up with work and this diet lately so I haven't had a chance to visit as many blogs or visit as frequently. I hope to catch up soon. I feel like more of my time than usual is consumed by cooking, planning, prepping and cleaning up after meals. We have 3 meals per day and no snack. We're used to having lunch and dinner and snack. Sometimes John didn't even eat lunch. I would starve! ha I can sure tell that eliminating my night time snack is helpful to my weight. After this Whole 30 is over I'm going to try my best to not go back to that habit.
My outfit this day is one I'm happy with. I was glad to fit back into these jeans. I like the fit of this blazer and the color. I am donating both my red blazer and houndstooth blazer even though I've only worn them 2-3 times each. I just didn't like the way they looked on me and decided I wasn't going to force myself to wear them. I didn't pay that much for them and I'd rather wear something I feel good in.
I liked my outfit today. I could just duplicate this same look with varying blazers, button downs, pants, and shoes to create so many looks from things I already own. I'd be happy wearing this style often.

Breakfast Day 10: Veggie Omelette w/salsa and Breakfast Pork Sausage
Dinner Day 10: Baked Chicken, Steamed Carrots w/ Ghee, 1/2 Deviled Egg, Sauteed Cinnamon Apples w/ Ghee
Dinner Day 11: Omelet w/unsweetened coconut flakes, grated orange peel and Guacamole, Steamed Carrots w/Ghee, Orange Slices
Yes...we have eaten a lot of eggs...and carrots. I have discovered that I really like carrots though. You have to eat 3 meals a day that all include a protein, a fat, and veggies. I worked this Day 11 and so an omelet was a quick and easy thing to come home and whip up for dinner...even though we've eaten plenty of eggs. I like omelets. Add guacamole and I can't complain. Of course we are not even half way through this. By the end I may never want to eat another egg as long as I live. haha
