It has been 15 days since my last post. I’ve thought about writing everyday, and then something would steer my attention another direction and the day would go by without my pen to paper. Before I knew it, it became “days” that had gone by since I last wrote and that is when the panic… Continue reading Overwhelmed and Paralyzed
I’m not going to bore you with days 25-27. They were compliant and boring. Nothing really to report- I cooked, I did dishes, I made my weekly trip to #wholefoods. Here is what I really want to tell you: the ice cream wasn’t worth it. Knowing that my reintroduction was coming up this week, I… Continue reading Whole30, Days 25-28. It was a good run. The 10 lessons learned.

Wait, Wait…I’ve managed to go on living without bread?

At this point when I think about… Continue reading Whole30, Days 12-14. Dare Me Chocolate, Dare Me.
No, I didn’t eat any donuts, but dang I really wanted to today. It was like I could taste it just by thinking about it. A wonderfully fresh cake donut with chocolate icing, warm and creamy. UGH, sounded so good. It wasn’t really a sugar craving, but more about seeing them a couple times today so… Continue reading Whole 30, Day 11. mmmm…Donuts!!
Ok why isn’t this harder? I feel like maybe I’m doing something wrong. According to the Whole30 timeline, which I just now read, this should be one of the hardest days. So hard in fact that I guess many people quit at this point. The reason for quitting seems to be that the newness of… Continue reading Whole30, day 10. It’s Fine. I’m Fine. It’s All Fine.
