Yippee! It’s my last night of work! I’m thismuch closer to heading down to the Ancestral Health Symposium in L.A.!

Because I drank a large thermos of Philz Coffee with heavy cream at the beginning of my shift (ooh, baby, it’s been too long!), I wasn’t hungry at work and didn’t feel like eating my packed meals.

On my way home, I drove to Whole Foods to stock up on Paleo goodies for our car ride down to AHS. I was gloating to myself that I was able to fast at work (heavy cream notwithstanding), but then my hunger snuck up on me, hitting me like a ton of bricks. I suddenly wanted to gnaw my arm off. Let me tell you, it took nerves of steel just to make it to the cash register before devouring everything in my shopping cart.

When I finally got home, I quickly inhaled some leftover crispy cheater duck confit, sautéed spinach, and roasted spiced mushrooms.

I was beyond famished, so I also slammed down a couple of tablespoons of coconut butter and half a bar of dark chocolate. Clearly, intermittent fasting doesn’t agree with me. (I think it hates me, actually.)

Once I stuffed my belly, I played with my small fries before taking a short nap on my “flip day.” I woke up in the early afternoon, bid my in-laws adieu, and went into full-time mommy mode.

For dinner, I was too beat to make anything so I reheated a container of leftovers: Asian cauliflower fried rice and sous vide flank steak.

Before going to bed, I assembled our Paleo eats for our road trip and wrapped little gifts for the boys. To assuage our guilt for leaving them at my parents for a few days, Fitbomb and I are giving Big-O and Lil-O tiny gifts to open every night we’re gone. That way, when they rip open their last present they’ll know we’ll be home the next day. 

Time to hit the sack!
